What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
return home to Earth and claim the reward Babel promised, Emmett and the
Genesis team join forces with the Imago. Babel’s initial attack left their home
city in ruins, but that was just part of the Imago’s plan. They knew one thing
Babel didn’t. This world is coming to an end.
Eden’s two moons are on a collision course no one can prevent. After building eight secret launch stations, the Imago hoped to lure Babel down to their doomed planet as they left it behind. A perfect plan until the Genesis team’s escape route was destroyed.
Now the group must split up to survive the hostile terrain and reach another launch station. As both sides struggle for the upper hand, the fight leads inevitably back into space, where Emmett, his crewmates, and their new allies will fight one final battle for control of the Genesis ships. Win this time, and they’ll survive Babel’s twisted game once and for all. As the Imago world falls, this is the last chance to rise.
I think this was an okay ending to the series, but I think I liked book one the best!
It has been a little bit since I read book 1 and 2. So I had quite a hard time getting into the story, since there was no recap at all in the beginning. I think it took me at least 20% of the story before I got into it again! And I think because it took me so long, I wasn’t enjoying the story as much as I could.
I think because I unexpectedly enjoyed the first book more then that I thought, my expectations for the rest of the series was pretty high. And they didn’t meet them. They were still good though!
My main problem with this book is that there was more romance compared to the previous two. Also with most of the ‘bad’ things that happened, you already knew how it would end.
This all sounds really negative, but it is a good story! It is really well written, with some great character development.
I will definitely look out for Reintgen’s next work!
