The Release is the thrilling YA conclusion to Tom Isbell's suspenseful post-apocalyptic Prey series, perfect for fans of The Maze Runner. Two months have passed since Book, Cat, Hope, and the others rescued the remaining Less Thans from Liberty, but they aren't safe yet, and soon they'll have to risk everything in order to defeat their enemies.
The group must leave the camp for good and escape the wolves, the Brown Shirts, and the Hunters. Most important, they need to stop Chancellor Maddox before she executes her Final Solution and grows even more powerful.
While the others are seeking freedom, for Hope, the battle has become personal. She wants revenge, no matter what the cost—and she's willing to sacrifice anything standing in her way. The group may still be weak, but they don't have time to wait. They must overthrow the Chancellor, even if it means joining forces with those who once betrayed them.
Reading this book was really fantastic! I've enjoyed this series since the beginning, and yeah, it was a pretty fantastic trilogy! Really enjoyed the journey that they have gone on, and this was one heck of an ending for them, what they faced and how they survived and beat the odds!
This is the book where they travel the most. They start where the series began in new Libertyville, travel to Heartland, a bit back, and then back to Libertyville in the end. So yeah, we get to see more, we get to see people who aren't running for their lives or the ones that are hunting them. So yeah, that was pretty awesome!
Hope and Book have been back and forth on their relationship, inching closer and closer to actually doing this world's version of dating! And they have some bumps on the road, like Hope's scars. Really enjoyed how it all played out!
The ending was pretty fantastic! There were casualties, but most of them were the bad guys, so that was OK! And yeah, finding out what Chancellor Maddox's plan, combined with that one twist, made for an awesome ending taking her down!
Absolutely loved and enjoyed this book! It was just so great!
