Review: Fault Lines [Death & Co. #3] by D.J. McCune
Fault Lines is the final book in this trilogy, and one that I was eager to start and find out how it would all end. However it took me a lot longer to read this book than I expected, work seriously kicked my butt which didn't help my reading time, I also found it hard to get back into this world and found myself picking up other book to make a start on.
Fault Lines picks up with Adam on his last day of summer holidays, before having to go back to school again. However going back to school is great for Adam, as it gets him out of being a full time Luman...for now and also allows him to see Melissa. However this life of school is quickly coming to an end when it is decided that he is to leave and concentrate on being a Luman, especially with Darian determined to find something wrong with Adam's family, adding to the mess with plans to stay at their house, ready to catch them out at something.
Fault Lines certainly has some surprises within it's pages that I did not see coming, with Heinrich's actions shaking up the Luman world and it's beliefs. We also see how serious Adam's ability is and how much it could cost him with using it. Fault Lines also takes Adam and his friends to Japan, on their school trip that has finally arrived, and while they do go sightseeing, there are also aspects to it that involve Adam's 'work'.
Fault Lines was an enjoyable read once I got into it, and the events that play out make it a perfect end to the series in a variety of ways, both good and bad. There were certain aspects that I didn't like, but that was mainly due to the outdated thinking of the Luman society in general, but there were also parts that made me extremely happy.
Overall Fault Lines was an enjoyable read and made a great finale to this series. I do think that not reading these books together made it harder for me to get back into this world, and I wish I had the time to re-read them as a whole.
