Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. Only Ruby can keep their highly dangerous prisoner in check. But with Clancy Gray, there's no guarantee you're fully in control, and everything comes with a price.
When the Children's League disbands, Ruby rises up as a leader and forms an unlikely allegiance with Liam's brother, Cole, who has a volatile secret of his own. There are still thousands of other Psi kids suffering in government "rehabilitation camps" all over the country. Freeing them - revealing the governments unspeakable abuses in the process - is the mission Ruby has claimed since her own escape from Thurmond, the worst camp in the country.
But not everyone is supportive of the plan Ruby and Cole craft to free the camps. As tensions rise, competing ideals threaten the mission to uncover the cause of IANN, the disease that killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others with powers the government will kill to keep contained. With the fate of a generation in their hands, there is no room for error. One wrong move could be the spark that sets the world on fire.

The story was gripping throughout. I'm completely hooked! Plan to listen through the whole series again, I hope the writer plans another series!
Another fantastic book from Alexandra Bracken and a great end to The Darkest Minds series.
I found it hard to review this book without giving too much of the plot away as there was so much going on.
This part of the story included all our favourite characters from the last two books as well as new twists to the plot that you come to expect from this series. I fell more in love with the Stewart brothers but did find Ruby became a bit annoying with her lack of attention and whinging but this was part of the storyline and was explained towards the end of the book.
Overall I loved this end to the series but it was just missing a little something that had me completely hooked with the first two books and lacked that ‘I want to read it again now!’ feeling, so ended up with a 4 star rating from me.
I was apprehensive of listening to the books in the beginning but I'm so glad I did, the entire series was brilliant and everything was so well done. I had a connection to the characters that I don't normally get with other books and felt happy when something went right and found my self saying "oh god" out loud when it didn't. The only thing to the series I would have wanted a bit different was the Martin character. I felt like his character started off well in book one and was likely to be a main character in the following books but was just forgotten about really. at the end when I thought he was going to be there he wasn't and I feel like every question I had about the entire series was answered except for the character of Martin. brilliant series and a brilliant narrator. will listen to again I'm sure within the year!
Lead character Ruby was frankly annoying and stupid. Far to emotional always over analysing every feeling ... a true victim.
What happened to strong female roles??? So diappointing because the story had an intriguing foundation and could have been amazing.
"One of the best books I have read in a long time"
The performance was flawless., absolutely filled with personality and emotion .just like the first 2 books I will dearly miss Ruby, Vida, Chubs, Liam, Cole , and of course Jude. it's rare that a book can make me tear up or can make my heart ache. This book and the 2 previous ones that are part of this series are relevant and full of poignant moment's, tense moments, and humorous moments. Bracken is incredibly creative and talented. If you are looking for a new series that is full of action and adventure and unique characters then add this to your list of must read books.
Great finish to the series! Everything closed perfectly. I'll miss these characters. I hope they turn this into a movie.
"Fabulous narration and story"
I dragged this one out because I never wanted it to end. One of my favorite performances EVER, and a gripping, complex, satisfying story. Highly recommended!!
"LOVED THE SERIES"
great story ! awesome characters. I COULDN'T STOP READING ! CAN'T WAIT FOR THE LAST BOOK ...
Ruby is just so endearing in the way she cares about all the psi kids. Ruby is just the right person to look to for leadership, not that she wants power but she wants to do what she can to save others.
Loved the book and the story, but the voice was hard to warm up to.
Narrator was perfect! This final book of the trilogy was great, and it saw a good deal of emotional action. I'm so happy it ended well, or I would have cried. It could have had a more definitive ending though, in my opinion.
"Has a fantastic ending"
The books drags on
But I didn't know if I could finish the book she is supposed to be strong but she whines and self pitys herself so much it was hard to finish
Not exactly what I imagined the characters talked like. I read the first two books by myself and decided to get the third as a audiobook. The story was amazing, though. I just didn't want it to ever end. I was actually so sad through the last 5 minutes because of it.
This was one of the best series that I have listen to it was a great performance it was great story it was lots of action. the characters were well-developed and it was easy to get attached to them. I wish there was more books coming out. I didn't want the story to end
