They were well on their way to making a new life outside the dome with their new airship friends and the few that had escaped the dome with them. But Wren knew that she could never really leave the dome behind, not as long as Pace’s mother is trapped inside, as well as many of her friends. Wren sacrifices herself to go back into the dome in order to free the others, Pace and Levi join in a secret rescue mission. However Wren’s father, the high captain of the guard catches and imprisons them. With no hope, Wren has to find a way out, but will her father see the light and agree to break the dome? Or will chaos ensue in the final book? Either way, the dome must come down.
I have loved reading this series so much. I have told everyone I know to pick up these books and read. It is such an amazing, empowering story. The final book had so many expectations riding on it. After devouring the words, I am very happy with how it ended. There is loads of action and I am still so moved by the main character Wren and how she has such a leader’s spirit, but a humble soul. She continues to risk her life for others, but never takes the credit of being a leader. I cannot help but love her. As for the love triangle that was introduced, I felt like the conclusion was well decided, and you could feel the authors love for her characters. There is death and destruction in this book, as well as the others. I am sad about it, but also glad. You cannot have a rebellion series without death, and in the end as sad as I felt for the characters, I am glad to see that the story remained realistic to what could happen.
This series had a strong start and a dynamic ending. The characters are well written and evolved. Wren’s story will stay with me long after I have put her books on the shelf. Go and read this series. There is action, adventure, love, rebellion and at the center of it all, a heroine who is an influence to us all.
