Goodreads Synopsis:

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion? 

Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict. 

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken. 


This was an amazing conclusion to the Illuminae Files series.

I was hooked right from the start. Even though these books have hundreds of pages, they are so fast paced that I flew through them.

This story introduced some new characters on the planet Keranza IV. The characters from the first two books were still there, on their ship, the Mao. It was great to see everyone come together in this book.

I loved the ending. It was unexpected. I was disappointed at first, when there were some casualties in the final war, but I ended up loving the ending.

This is a fabulous series! I highly recommend it!
