Summary

Isabella and her new family have been captured and imprisoned in the underground city of Mt. Weather. They and other captive mutants face certain death cleaning lethal radiation zones outside unless Dr. Rosario's cure can save them.

But can Isabella's brother Luke and the Mt. Weather rebels convince enough of the army that the mutants are worth saving? Without their help, the mutants are doomed.

Book 3


Under the mountain the 3rd book in the series is just as good as the first 2 in the series . I will definitely be watching for any other books from the author. Narration is also very clear.

An Exciting and Rewarding Listen

In the final book of the trilogy the story threads are brought together as mutant and human combine to overthrow the tyranny that was manipulating the humans against the mutants. Great narration brought the adventure to life with well thought out characters and plot lines. The series has been a great listen and drew to a very satisfying conclusion.

Lost time is never found again.

The third and final book in the Into the Outside trilogy finds Malcolm and his family separated from his Isabella, the former, being mutants, scheduled to work on clean up dreams outside in the heavily radiation polluted lands until death, whilst Isabelle enjoys comfort within Mount Weather. But she finds unexpected allies in her determination to save her loved ones.

This surprising post apocalyptic series continues to explore people at their best - and theirworst. Slow moving, as far as actual fighting is concerned, it still holds thrills and tensions as well as providing an engaging storyline within a well developed world.
Ann Bumback's narration is, in tune with the whole book, a pleasant one, her voice soft, warm and slow, with mostly well differentiated voices, although sometimes lacking intonation in the connecting text. Unfortunately, however, when the action heats up, her narration fails to do so, leaving the listener with a feeling of disconnect which, added to the frequent, bizarre pauses within sentences (as in 'Quite literally to - pause - change - pause - the world', or 'As soon as she looked - pause - the pillls...' and many, many others) combined with often strange intonations, considerably diminished the power of the happenings.

A good series, though, with interesting world building and thrills along the way, this is a solid science fiction story which can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

Thrilling end to the series

This was an excellent conclusion to a unique series. This post-apocalyptic story has battles for survival, romance, loss, racism, and shows both the worst and the best of society. Isabella and Malcolm are great characters and you really want them to have a HEA. The story illustrates well how fear of the unknown and blindly believing what you are told has the potential to cause great harm. It also shows the importance of standing up for the downtrodden and being willing to fight for what is right. The narrator once again did a great job, giving individual voices to the characters, that were consistent from one book to the next. This is an original, thrilling conclusion to the series.

Great Post-apocalyptic Trilogy!

Into the Outside is a great post-apocalyptic trilogy! It starts out with Isabella and her family living in an underground shelter after a nuclear war destroys most of humanity. Some of the humans who survived without shelters we're mutated from the fallout. The mutants mature much faster and have a much shorter life span. Isabella gets curious about a family of mutants living outside of her shelter and sneaks out to meet them. After she realizes that they aren't much different from her, she decides to leave her shelter and explore the world outside. She eventually decides to marry Malcolm, her new mutant friend. Isabella and her new family go off to look for a scientist who could possibly make a vaccine to protect humanity from the harmful radiation. They also try to warn other mutant settlements of the military using mutants to clean up heavy radiation zones, riding humanity of two problems at once. In the final book, Isabella tries to free her family from the military while Dr Rosario works on his vaccine. Isabella's brother, Luke, works with a small group of rebels who don't agree with their government's treatment of the mutants. Their hope is to free all of the mutants. Great narration by Ann Bumbak. I only gave 4 stars on the narration because I can hear a bit of background noise in the recording. It was a little distracting at times.
