Title: Undone (Unknown #3)
Author: Wendy Higgins
Pub. Date: December 5, 2017
Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen, marred by one ugly fact; it’s under enemy control. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been captured, and it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the only precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.
Remy Haines is a lover, not a fighter, so when she finds herself in enemy territory, expected to feign allegiance while gathering intel for the rebel cause, she’s never been more out of her element. Tensions only increase when her feelings for Jacob “Tater” Tate won’t go away, and the enemy’s leader takes an interest in her. She’s torn between what her heart wants, and what she knows she should do. As for what her body needs…well, it’s always had a mind of its own.
This will be a spoiler free review.
I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to read this trilogy.
It’s so damn good, and you all should read it.
It should be on your radar.
It’s slow burn…so slow burn that if nothing happened between Amber and Rylen in book 2, I was going legit riot.
Y’all, I miss dystopian books.
Can they make a come back?
I didn’t realize how much I needed to read this trilogy until I read it. I didn’t realize how much I was missing it as a sub-genre until I read it. Now I need more.
Bring back the era of Divergent, The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner and all of the other dystopian sci-fi books, it’s time for them to be the next wave in YA.
Anyways, I really enjoyed this finale to the Unknown Trilogy. The last 50 or so pages of this book had my heart rate skyrocketing and my blood pressure through the freaking roof, and for a moment I thought Wendy was going to rip my heart out of my chest.
It’s amazing just how much happens in these three books, and this final one was no exception. It’s make or break time, the battle for humanity is on, and if they don’t win…let’s just say that, that isn’t an option.
Up until this book, the enemy is just that, the enemy. We get to see another side to them through Remy’s eyes. While it doesn’t excuse what they’ve done/are doing, her interactions almost humanize them. Her viewpoint differs from Amber’s, who is keen on taking down the enemy and just wants to make it out and to the other side alive. I liked that the book alternated points of view. I was a little iffy at first, but quickly grew to enjoy
Tensions are higher than ever for the characters and this book just doesn’t stop.
I couldn’t put it down – not that I even wanted to.
When I got to the end of the book, I just wanted to continue reading, but that’s hard to do when you read the last page.
Overall, I liked how the book and the series ended. I don’t think I really have any complaints, except that I wish there was another book, but I’m pretty sure I already said that. I could definitely read a whole book about what happens after the final battle.
Wendy makes you fall in love with these characters so quickly and so easily. She makes you feel connected to them, and has you rooting for their successes and mourning their losses.
She’s also so freaking good at creating a world and a story that completely captures your interest and makes you not want to put down the book.
So, make sure you check out the Unknown Trilogy as well as her other books. If you’re looking for a NA Dystopian series, look no further!
