(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I did like reading this third book in the series, but the chapters did switch between first and third person, which – next to multiple first person POVs – is one of the writing styles I’m not so keen on.
It was good to see more of Dante and Clare and Lily. I felt that Lily’s story was a bit more interesting than Clare and Dante’s. Although learning about the history of the world was interesting, I did feel that there was a bit too much info dumping at times.
It was good to see the different people’s reactions to the society they lived in and how they dealt with the restrictions placed on them. I felt the author showed those differences really well. I also liked Arturo’s character more in this book. I liked his friendship with Lily, even if I found myself a bit unsure of him at various points through the book.
It was also good to see the different ways the various societies utilised seeds. I liked the Easter egg hunt… and, again, I liked the use of prayer and Bible passages in this storyline as well.
I was a bit disappointed not to see anything of the people left behind by the characters. It would have been nice to see more of Clare and Dante’s mother. And also Lily’s.
There were some nice emotional scenes in this book, especially towards the end. I’d like to read the next book in the series at some point in the future. I’d really like to see what happens next with the characters.
