Behind every powerful organization there lies a weakness, concealed in greed and deception.
Inside every young mother there lies a ticking time bomb of indomitable strength.

When 21-year-old Pollen McRae escaped Crimson Survivor Refuge for the third time, she hoped it would be her first and last confrontation with the Trinity, the powerful trio who released the virus that destroyed her world. But now they have captured Pollen’s niece, Evie, in order to extract a portion of her DNA that could change the outcome of human existence. And they are willing to trade her . . . for Pollen and her unborn baby. 

Meanwhile, the Trinity will stop at nothing to enact vengeance on the residents of Ceborec for Pollen’s escape and the theft of classified documents. Lives will be lost. Hearts will be broken. A community will be destroyed. 

How far will Pollen go to keep her family safe?

***Cianna – #NerdGirlSunshine’s  Review***
Seeing this as the final book, I was excited. I never thought I’d be pulled into this story. I didn’t plan to love it. But I did.

Quinn is a great author. She really knows how to craft her words, pull together a story, and flush out everything in between. I never had a moment where I wasn’t sure where we were, or who was talking. She really makes her characters 3D, and really allows us to get to know them, and even leaves enough for us to still find out some new things.

Pollen is a great character to follow. She’s lively, young, driven and just full of action. She really drove this book, with her choices, her struggles, and everything we’ve seen from her. She didn’t plan to go down this path, it wasn’t a conscious choice she made, but even though, she still does everything she can.

Putting together a review without mention of the many spoilers throughout this novel is very hard. I thought I had a good idea about how this book was going to play out after the first two, but there were still several things that caught me off guard. In a good way! Sometimes authors want to shock you so they throw in a twist that makes no sense, but not in this book. You can tell Quinn plotted out this whole book Arc from start to finish, and knew when to mention things, and when to hold back because while reading, everything started to come to light, right at the perfect time. 

This book blends the dystopian feelings, with a bit of an environmental spin, and really gives you everything you expect from a strong YA dystopian trilogy. It’s got some relationships, drama, action, suspense, and a good amount of “who-dun-it”. I was hooked, and reading until the very last page. It needs lost it’s appeal, the pacing kept up, and I think Quinn did an outstanding job ending her trilogy with this book!
