This is the 3rd book in the Paradigm Trilogy.
The existence of 15-year-old Alice Davenport is Paradigm Industries’ biggest secret.
Decades ago, after fierce storms ravaged the earth, Alice was one of the first to help establish Paradigm Industries’ new world order: in which no one can leave the Barricades, and every trace of the past was destroyed. The whole Community believes she died an Industry hero.
But Alice refused to live under Paradigm’s cruel laws.
Alice was punished. And Alice is alive.
Sentenced to permanent cryonic sleep in the Catacombs, Alice has been frozen for years… until now. With the Industry wanting her dead, Alice is on the run – helped by Carter Warren, Industry loyalist turned secret rebel. But as they make their escape, they uncover a shocking secret.
Paradigm Industries have devastating plans for the future, which threaten to tear the world apart. Those living outside the Barricades will be permanently destroyed. With Alice and Carter the only hope for humanity, can they find the strength to finally defeat the Industry?
This conclusion to the trilogy was brilliant. It was fast paced, exciting and a great book to read. The plot developed well and moves towards a satisfying ending with the great characters.
Alice and Carter’s stories came together and they worked together in this book. It was enjoyable to read their relationship develop. Both are strong characters.
The storyline was just brilliant. Throughout the series various secrets had arisen at various times, and in this book, it all finally came together. This was particularly true for the big villain in this book.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this series. It has been a brilliant journey from the very first book. The storyline is great, the background of the world is great, the characters are great and the ending is satisfying.
My rating: 5/5*
