Written in Fire

The Brilliance Trilogy, #3

I was thrilled when I received the final book in the Brilliance series. Everything was left on a huge cliff-hanger in the last book. This book sped toward an intense final battle with many twists, turns and action. It was fun following Cooper again as he raced to try to stay one step ahead of the super strategist and face his biggest fear head on in one more final confrontation. The supporting characters also made appearances bringing the story fully around to show many different perspectives making it a more well-detailed world for the readers enjoyment. There was much action and tension and the heroes were outnumbered and sometimes outsmarted but they, the underdogs, persevered until the end. This was a nice wrap-up to a great series. Written in Fire is a page turner that you won't want to put down.

Nick Cooper must try to save everyone from John Smith. Not only is the world in turmoil, with hatred growing between the normals and the brilliants, but John has something even more terrifying up his sleeve. If Nick does not stop him the world will be forever changed on a gargantuan scale. The odds do not look good for Nick, but he must do everything in his power to save his family and the world.

The explosive conclusion to the bestselling Brilliance Trilogy

For thirty years humanity struggled to cope with the brilliants, the 1 percent of people born with remarkable gifts. For thirty years we tried to avoid a devastating civil war.

We failed.

The White House is a smoking ruin. Madison Square Garden is an internment camp. In Wyoming, an armed militia of thousands marches toward a final, apocalyptic battle.

Nick Cooper has spent his life fighting for his children and his country. Now, as the world staggers on the edge of ruin, he must risk everything he loves to face his oldest enemy—a brilliant terrorist so driven by his ideals that he will sacrifice humanity’s future to achieve them.

From “one of our best storytellers” (Michael Connelly) comes the blistering conclusion to the acclaimed series that is a “forget-to-pick-up-milk, forget-to-water-the-plants, forget-to-eat total immersion experience” (Gillian Flynn).
