Ceri Lowe has come up with a rocking action-filled finish to the series set in a dystopian world. The last in the Paradigm Trilogy, this book needs to be read in order.
This book started where the previous one left off with Alice being awakened by Carter after 80 years and finding that her adopted daughter Elizabet was in charge and the world being quite different from what she had envisioned. Alice’s journey to make her world alright and put a stop to tyranny was filled with adrenaline, there was simply no time to breathe. The book left me gasping. Characters outside the barricades in the Township and the Village had their own unrest.
Ceri Lowe is a master in writing a dynamic story with the world in disarray. I could just immerse myself back into Carter’s world with ease, the twists plentiful led me down a merry trail. There was danger and death at every turn with secrets shocking me with suspense. The entire book gave me the feeling of seeing a vivid three dimensional dystopian thriller movie well directed under the talented hands of author Ceri Lowe.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!
