I have been waiting for this book to arrive for ages, and now I know that it was worth the wait! I really enjoyed reading this book, it had a very active storyline, and the part was seeing all the secrets and mysteries that were made in books 1 and 2 finally conclude. I was always wondering how the holographic eyes and mod-bots from the first two books would be used in the plot that this book revealed, but now I know, which is a great feeling.
I loved the cover, it sets the "danger" theme, which is exactly what I love in most books. The story flowed well, some parts were predictable to a degree, but there were a lot of surprises which I still enjoyed. I loved how there was a lot of danger in this book, I actually I was actually holding my breath at some points in the story, and at other times I was just plain hooked, unable to tear myself away from the book!
This was truly an active conclusion, and now that this trilogy is over, I don't think there are any untold secrets left. The beginning of this book integrated very well with the end of the last one, so the trilogy was effectively just 1 storyline cut into 3 chunks and sold separately. There was no bad language, but the violence level and the sophistication of the text means that this book is good for people 12 and up.
Overall, this is a book that I really enjoyed, and would love to read again sometime! If you are into highly active, fun, and addictive story-lines, then you should try this book and the rest of the series as well. Enjoy!
