Kristen Simmons’ fast-paced, gripping YA dystopian series continues in Three.
Ember Miller and Chase Jennings are ready to stop running. After weeks spent in hiding as two of the Bureau of Reformation’s most wanted criminals, they have finally arrived at the safe house, where they hope to live a safe and quiet existence.
And all that’s left is smoking ruins.
Devastated by the demolition of their last hope, Ember and Chase follow the only thing left to them—tracks leading away from the wreckage. The only sign that there may have been survivors.
With their high profile, they know they can’t stay out in the open for long. They take shelter in the wilderness and amidst the ruins of abandoned cities as they follow the tracks down the coast, eventually finding refugees from the destroyed safe house. Among them is someone from Chase’s past—someone he never thought he’d see again.
Banding together, they search for a place to hide, aiming for a settlement a few of them have heard about…a settlement that is rumored to house the nebulous organization known as Three. The very group that has provided Ember with a tiny ray of hope ever since she was first forced on the run.
Three is responsible for the huge network of underground safe houses and resistance groups across the country. And they may offer Ember her only chance at telling the world her story.
At fighting back.

My Review

As Three concludes the series, I will admit I am sorry to see it end.  A story that I fell deep in emotion for, I didn't want to lose the characters that I have endured so many of their battles with.

Three packs a punch. SO much happens in this story, it is embedded in my brain for a long time to come.  There is emotion galore in this book, times where I cried and laughed.  For there to be any type  of humor with the obstacles that Ember and Chase have to deal with is remarkable.

The whole mystery of Three is finally revealed.  And boy was I surprised.  I thought this "person" was brilliantly brought into the story.  Trust and betrayal goes together like black and white, yin and yang, good and evil....you can't have one without the other.  The search for a safe place and any type of freedom is the main element in the plot.  The characters are all strong...those you completely love, those you just have so much hatred for, and those you hope and pray will redeem themselves.  Did I say I cried??  Yeah, this last installment hit me hard in the gut.

Ember and Chase's relationship becomes stronger with their devotion to each other complete.  This whole series is amazing, and I have complete faith that there will be a reread in the future.  This is a MUST read.  Dystopia excellence for sure!
