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.

Loved it

I really enjoyed this instalment the most of the trilogy. The narrator continues to give life to this book and it’s characters , she really suits the storyline.

I loved the post nuclear world created under the mountain in this instalment and the hot of new characters introduced. Put it this way, if there are a 4th book.....I would definitely listen to it. Enjoy.

Bringing everything together

I really enjoyed the last book in this series - I like the fact that we got to meet new characters and see the world from their point of view, that many people were willing to stand up for the new humans and that change was made!
Would recommend this series

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.

I liked it!

This series seemed to be written for youth and if so then I think she did a great job. If it was written for young adults then not so much. The story is sweet and simple with great characters and interesting world building. It had good morals and gave the reader plenty to think about concerning the treatment of the world, the treatment of others and what could happen if we aren't careful with our decisions.

Outstanding conclusion to the series. I want more

Outstanding conclusion to the series, the author has clearly progressed in their story telling ability over the time it took to tell these stories.
I really enjoyed this one and want more in the series.
A good read (listen) and fun, though I am guessing it would take a lot longer for people to mutate than the author of this series.

A good ending to the story

I received this book for an honest review.

And after all the journey through here, it leave me satisfied actually.

In the end, it was very heartwarming and interesting, it gives you a lot to think of not just for the scenery but for the characters too.

They're so many things people sometimes do thinking is better but just ruining things for others, or the corruption that seems so well spread in every country.

It was light but with purpose for me, I do hope to read more of this author in the future.

Very cool and interesting!

This is one of the best stories of the year. It is interesting to learn how the people survive after a war. The community went through a revolution in order to change. I liked the narration kept me engaged. The author is very talented. So pick up this book, you won't regret it!

Best of Three

The narrator was a bit slow for me so I played the book at 120%. This book wraps everything up and brings the trilogy to a conclusion.

Under the Mountain

This was a really good book!Isobel and her family are captured and seperated.The humans are experimenting on mutants and Malcom and the children are up next! Ann Bumbak was a very good narrator. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

Overall a good series

These book were good overall, but were pretty predictable. That's not always a bad thing though. The only thing I wish is that the characters would have been a little more developed, so I could have cared about them more.

Under the Mountain

Isabella and her family and friends are held prisoner in the lowest levels of Mt Weather and are slated to clean up some of the highest radiated areas without any protection. Luke has also made it to Mt Weather and has made friends with others that are rebels and hate what the higher ups are doing to the mutants and are ready to help Luke free his sister and friends.

This is the last book in the trilogy and probably the best. It has so much action and suspense you just can not stop reading or if you are lucky enough to get the audio narrated by Ann Bumbak you can't stop listening. Ms Bumbak is wonderful she draws you into the story and makes you feel as though you are there fighting along side everyone sometimes as a rebel sometimes as a mutant, but you will have to stay and see what happens all the way to the end. This was a great series and one you should give a try if you like post dystopian books but not as rough as others.

Great post apocalyptic read!!!

Loved this trilogy.
I still love the narrator in the first book but that is probably a personal preference.
For the third I was a tiny bit disappointed how some things were talked over rather quickly in order to achieve resolution but overall an amazing series!
The narrator in the 2nd and 3rd feels a little too monotone to me.
