YA / Sci-Fi / Super Soldiers
Kira, Samm, and Marcus fight to prevent a final war between Partials and humans in the gripping final installment in the Partials Sequence, a series that combines the thrilling action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Blade Runner and The Stand.
There is no avoiding it—the war to decide the fate of both humans and Partials is at hand. Both sides hold in their possession a weapon that could destroy the other, and Kira Walker has precious little time to prevent that from happening. She has one chance to save both species and the world with them, but it will only come at great personal cost.
Dan Wells’ Partials series started my love of super soldiers. I stayed up all night until 4AM reading the first book in the series and I happily devoured the subsequent volumes as soon as I could get my hands on them. Leading lady Kira was crazy smart, a little reckless and a fascinating person to follow around the country as she tried to figure out how to solve the population problem for both the humans and the Partials. Meanwhile Samm was the super strong, self-reliant yet oddly awkward in human society soldier that I wanted to take home with me and make cookies. Together they have been one of my favorite YA sci-fi couples in recent memory.
So with that said here is my mini review of the final book in Wells’ series.
