Review: Three by Kristen Simmons
I have followed this series from the very first book, and thanks to super amazing publicist's have had the first two books sent to me for various reasons, so I never expected the receive the third and final book in this series. When my Mum told me I had a parcel from America in her house I thought it was from one of my friends, so when I actually opened it to find Three I was beyond excited, I was shocked and speechless that I had this book sent to me, I also may have done a happy dance which shall not be repeated in public.
Picking up Three I was hesitant as to whether I would be able to dive straight into it or not, but the minute I began reading I was back in Chase and Ember's world again, I had no problem whatsoever catching up to where everyone was, what they were up to, and who was who.
Ember, Chase, Rebecca, and Sean are still on the run, trying to find more survivors but also a safe place for them all. But the journey is long and arduous and there are a lot of hurdles in the road to overcome. Not once did you think they were safe, even when they reached the safe haven of Endurance you are still left thinking something is not right about it and that at any moment it could all come crashing down on.
Ember, chase still on the run. The constant threat of danger keeps you reading, wanting to know what is going to happen next, I was literally on the edge of my seat through most of this book.
There are a lot of secrets revealed, more secrets to hide, people surprising you over who they are actually working for, and the constant changing of sides. I wanted to throttle some characters for acting the way they did, hug some of them for everything they had to go through. I cried for people I never thought I would cry over, and was unbelievably happy over who survived. The ending of Three was bitter-sweet, but was also very fitting, for not only the book, but also the series as a whole.
Three was such an emotional roller coaster ride, but worth every tear shed, every escaped laugh,, every gasp of shock and every single page turned. I laughed, cried, and wanted to make this book last forever, which was impossible to do, I had to know how this would all end and what state the world would be left in. Three is a fantastic end to a series that I am sad to see end.
I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the publicist at Tor USA who sent me Three for review, I really appreciate it.
