It's December, the final month in the deadly 365-day countdown. Cal desperately needs to get to Ireland - where he's counting on all the clues falling into place - but with airport security at an all-time high, escaping the country seems impossible.
Will Cal find out what really happened to his dad? Will he reach the Ormond Singularity before the stroke of midnight? Only time will tell. One thing's for sure, people will lose their lives in the fight to the end - and Cal's hoping he won't be one of them.
The clock is ticking. Any second could be his last.
Callum Ormond has been warned. He has 31 days.
The countdown continues...
A great finish to a really well written series.
Whilst with each book you knew that at the end of it there was a really good chance that Cal would end up in a life threatening situation, and that in the first chapter of the next book this would be resolved with Cal coming away with his life intact.
Obviously with this being the last book in the series everything is now being tidied up, all loose ends are being tied, and of course all questions are being answered.
Now i'm not going to tell you who lives and who dies in this final adventure as I for one hate it when people tell me the ending of a book before i've gotten past page 5, so I will keep it to myself. I will however say that there were one or two twists at the end that I actually managed to suspect from early on (and I never usually manage to pick up on these )
Overall the entire series was a great read, and this book was a fitting end to the series.
A fitting final chapter in an epic year long journey. Conspiracy 365 has been a story full of actions and barely any time to breathe. The final instalment brings more of the same as Cal and friends travel to Ireland to try and unravel the Ormond Singularity. All the questions are answered, all the threads are tied up... it is a satisfying ending, given the rest of the series.
My main criticism along the way has been that the characters are a little shallow and the near death situations a little repetitive. That still stands, though I think it will be a hugely enjoyable read for the younger male audience especially.
If you were feeling hugely magnanimous, you could give the whole set for Christmas... and then wait several weeks to speak to your loved one again (I can almost guarantee that they will want to read the whole set in one sitting...)
Random listing from 'Books'...
The Auckland Harbour Bridge is under construction. Simon likes watching the bridge being built, and talking to his uncle and his mates about what's happening on site.
Meanwhile, Simon's best friend Marty is obsessed with the Space Race and younger sister Jo can't stop worrying about the fate of the dogs and monkeys that are the world's first space travellers.
Everyone says that life on the North Shore will change once the bridge is finished... but what does that mean for Simon and his family?
