Publisher's Summary

The fate of the world is more fragile than ever as Pures battle Wretches and former allies become potential enemies. 

Inside the Dome Patridge has taken his father's place as leader of the Pures. His intent had been to bring down the Dome from the inside with the help of the secret resistance force led by Partridge's former teacher Glassings. But from his new position of power, things don't seem quite as clear. Perhaps his father had been right. Perhaps if the world is to survive it needs the Dome - and Partridge - to rule it. 

Outside the Dome, Pressia and Bradwell continue piecing together the clues left to them by their parents from the time before the detonations. Soon they will be able to help heal the Wretches, freeing them from their monstrous fusings and the Dome's oppression once and for all. But their success also depends on Partridge. Can they still trust their friend and ally to see their plan through? Or will a new war begin?

Sad

I loved the first book and second book in this trilogy, but walked away from this one sad and with unanswered questions. An epilog would have been nice, to answer some of them. The narrators once again did an excellent job of bringing all the characters to life, which made the end disappointing for me. If you read the first two books, you must finish it, but definitely not left with that "feel good feeling" you get when you finish a trilogy.

Lazy ending

Any additional comments?

The ending was abrupt and not explained. What happens to the dome people at the end? To the Mothers, the wretches? Does Weed use the cure? Do the beasts & Dusts just kill everyone off? What about Pressia's father? Seems like the author got lazy and rushed through the ending.

Best Post Apocalyptic Dystopian Fiction Trilogy

I have been obsessed with this trilogy since I read the first book, Pure, nearly 10 years ago. Since then, I have patiently waited for the 2nd and 3rd books and bought both immediately upon their releases. I also waited for its popularity to blow up, as to me it compares to The Hunger Games and,The Forest of Hands and Teeth. I think the fact that it is classified as an adult fiction instead of YA may have been detrimental to it not catching on in that aspect, but it is better than both of those trilogies. Julianna Baggott has developed amazing characters, making the reader fall in LOVE with Helmud and El Capitan, as well as the warrior band of Mothers, who are hated at the beginning due to their brutality, and also begin to severely dislike the two main characters Partridge and Pressia, who are set up to be the heroes but fail due to their selfish motives and immaturity, though not their fault as the decisions that are forced upon both as they are put into positions no 16 year old should ever be put into. The audiobooks bring this story to life a hundred times more than the book ever could, as it is told in revolving POVs and amazing actors voice each different one. The audiobook especially brings Helmud to life, as a character that has been so traumatized from the detonations and further traumatized by El Capitans previous treatment of him, he is only able to echo what other characters say to him. In the first book, it seems he can only echo the last words of his brothers every sentence, but through the 2nd and 3rd book we see that he is actually communicating, and the interactions between him and El Capitan made me laugh out loud 5 or 6 times. It is an amazing epic story that especially captured my imagination as a future that America could one day become in light of current events (maybe in a few thousand years) and it is as disturbing as it is endearing. Baggott was able to complete every characters story arc and connected every loose seam that I had not even noticed needed connecting as I was reading. this trilogy is amazing. DON'T MISS OUT!! It is so great I actually re-listened to it again immediately after I heard it on audible the first time. My favorite books of all time besides Harry Potter!!

Don’t start this series

First of all, I want to say that the voice actors in this book are great! I am especially fond of the actor who voiced El Capitan and Helmud.

As for the writing? I am so utterly disappointed in this entire book, not just the ending. I started this series excited to find out how it would be resolved. Well, we never find out, really. The pacing of this book is abysmal and the character development falls short of the first and second books. We take a whole trip across an ocean, are introduced to other culture and for what purpose? This happens over and over again—something promising takes place and then ends abruptly and is left behind immediately.

The end suddenly comes about with, what seems to me, like a forced conflict, as though there are only two choices, when there could be so many other ways to resolve the conflict.

The relationships built along the way are abruptly replaced and neglected… it’s just a mess.

I ended up refunding this purchase, because this was such an awful end to something that started with such promise.

Burn at last

The narration fit the story line perfectly. This last book was the best of the three. I enjoyed reading it and there was enough story for my imagination.

Extraordinary

I love this book series so much, so much emotion. I don’t like certain characters but that’s what makes it good. I fell in love with one of the characters, Bradwell, he is the absolute best character. I have mixed emotions about the ending, but that’s okay. I wish there was more to read but sadly there isn’t. All I will say is that the ending made me cry for a half an hour straight. A big thanks to the author, for this beautiful masterpiece. This is a must read, I repeat this series is a must read.

P.S. Bradwell and Pressia forever.
Also Bradwell is the best boi of all time and Partridge can go die in a hole ☺️.

.... okay but that ending though

The rest of the book? Pretty good. The end? What?! It’s like the author tried to cram another few hours worth of plot into 5 minutes. It’s so open ended that it answers basically no questions at all - except killing a main character.

Not entirely fulfilled

Just as it was reaching the climax it ended.
It was a good trilogy, but it really left me unfulfilled.
