Publisher's Summary

Ruby can’t look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government’s attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. Only Ruby can keep their highly dangerous prisoner in check. But with Clancy Gray, there's no guarantee you're fully in control, and everything comes with a price.

When the Children's League disbands, Ruby rises up as a leader and forms an unlikely allegiance with Liam's brother, Cole, who has a volatile secret of his own. There are still thousands of other Psi kids suffering in government "rehabilitation camps" all over the country. Freeing them - revealing the governments unspeakable abuses in the process - is the mission Ruby has claimed since her own escape from Thurmond, the worst camp in the country.

But not everyone is supportive of the plan Ruby and Cole craft to free the camps. As tensions rise, competing ideals threaten the mission to uncover the cause of IANN, the disease that killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others with powers the government will kill to keep contained. With the fate of a generation in their hands, there is no room for error. One wrong move could be the spark that sets the world on fire.

Loved the whole series

Another fantastic book from Alexandra Bracken and a great end to The Darkest Minds series.

I found it hard to review this book without giving too much of the plot away as there was so much going on.

This part of the story included all our favourite characters from the last two books as well as new twists to the plot that you come to expect from this series. I fell more in love with the Stewart brothers but did find Ruby became a bit annoying with her lack of attention and whinging but this was part of the storyline and was explained towards the end of the book.

Overall I loved this end to the series but it was just missing a little something that had me completely hooked with the first two books and lacked that ‘I want to read it again now!’ feeling, so ended up with a 4 star rating from me.
