The finale to the Zone War series.

Alone and weaponless, with a remote controlled bomb in his neck, Ajaya Gurung must plan and fight better and harder than ever before. The last Spider is out there, in the Zone, plotting the end of man, and man is ignoring the danger. Left with only his skills, wits, and courage, he must adapt and overcome before it's too late. If only he had an ace in the hole...oh wait...he does!

Took an unexpected downward turn

The series has been well written and very well paced up to this point. However, it started to rapidly do what we expected would happen at the end of the book. Instead the story rushes past it, then starts to lose steam. Ending with everyone watching news. It's weird considering the quality of the series so far. It might not have been so bad if this wasn't a "Trilogy". Knowing that.. 'This' is the culmination, and won't go any further, somehow drags the whole thing down the drain.

He set up great characters. Has an excellent Narrator. Built a believable version of a possible future in our own world. Cracked sentient A. I. in a fascinating way. He set the stage for fantastic story that could have easily continued.. Then didn't.

He seems to hint that he's going to make other series based in the world. However, that just makes me feel that he used this series as advertising for the next instead of making any kind of actually satisfying conclusion.

Seriously, this book could be summed up by a few sentences.
Dramatic actions piss off stupid government.
Spider goes Skynet. Ricky tags alone to play Risk.
Storm Trooper syndrome infects thugs so MC and company don't die.
Everyone moves to Vermont or something.
Hey look, China imploded. Bye.

... It's.. *sighs* I doubt I'll read anymore books based in this universe if this is the kind conclusions I can expect. Especially so if he decides to change the cast.

This WAS one of my top 10 series. Now I wish I would have stopped listening to the last few hours and left it to my imagination. After all, anything is better than nothing.

Terrible disappointment

I waited excitedly for the third part of this zone war trilogy. I can say that I was sorely disappointed. I found myself fast forwarding through a lot of secondary to the boring story line and sometimes laborious descriptions of things. The first two books were fast-moving, action packed and riveting. This book was exactly the opposite.
The writer’s commentaries on the end of the world,so to speak,were not accurate and definitely not welcome in a book that is meant to entertain. The ending may be the worst ending of a book that I’ve seen in a long time. The descriptions of the survival we’re elitist and downright stupid to be honest. It’s too bad. it had great potential.

Socialistic Rant?

This trilogy had an interesting premise — the 1st two books were fun, good listens. Book three, however, is a mind numbing disaster. Here’s why:
1. Where’d the plot go?? Zero coherence.
2. Dialogue is trite, cliché, offensive to listener’s intelligence.
3. Grammatically, a total mess. This was not edited.
4. Seemingly out of nowhere is 3+ hours of ultraliberal socialist hippy commentary. The author explains why a “very strict communal society is the Only correct way for humans to live“. If that isn’t strange enough, well, he then continues in excruciating detail re every single item one needs to create and sustain themselves in such a community, including info for a communal “Constitution”. He‘ll tell you exactly how many ounces of water/food/fat/protein is needed per person, per day based on a their gender, weight, their daily work/activity - this is work that is assigned to them, btw (oh yeh, quotes & reference source material included in dialogue).

So good, but so sad it’s a trilogy.

I have 49 minutes left in this book and I really feel like it’s just getting started. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the first two books. It just feels like the story is really just taking off. There could be 3 more books easily. They are just building their own society. I don’t want to spoil anything. You will just have to listen and judge for yourself. Maybe it’s the coronavirus talking, but the whole isolating from the modern world and just starting over and doing it right seems pretty good right about now.

Great book. I hope there are more in the future.

A satisfying conclusion to a good trilogy. Smart heroes fighting smart enemies all with good narration.

Not as good as first two is series

About half way or so through this one the quality is downhill from there, our hero and friends find out there is a crazy smart and insane super computer that has built four of the toughest enemy drones yet and given each one of the names of the four horsemen of the apocalypse and turned them loose I'm the city. Sounds awesome and I thought how awesome the rest of the book is going to be as we join along the heroes try to painfully hunt down these mega drones one at a time. How awesome that would have been but it does not play out that way like I said shortly after the four horseman are introduced and very quickly done away with it goes down from there.

It's like the author forgot we love this series most while watching are characters survive day by day inch by inch in the zone while ducking and dodging the drones, so how this book played out in its second half bummed me out.

underwhelming

The first two books were great. I fast forwarded the last two hours of the book because almost nothing happened. Very disappointed in this as the first two books were great.

Actually, there was no real ending to this trilogy

I agree with many prior reviewers that this story goes off the tracks for the final 1/3 of the book. Loved books 1 and 2, fast paced story, clever premise, great narration. Gave both books 5 stars. Enjoyed initial 2/3 of book three, the last of the Trilogy. But then it just took off into the aether, and rather than concluding the trilogy, set the stage for a doomsday scenario that will require another series just to know the fate of the MC and supporting characters. One of the most off putting endings to a series I’ve listened to on Audible.
With close to 900 books in my library, that‘s saying something. I also rarely write a review, but the problems with the story’s conclusion needed to be reaffirmed. I agree with many other reviewers, the ending of book 3 goes off on a tangent, it never really concludes the story and hurts the whole series. Just flat out disappointing.
