The final book in this trilogy brings them all together: Sarah, Ayaan, Dekalb, Marisol, Mael, Nilla and Gary. They all participate in the final chapter of the Apocalypse to come.
12 years after the Dead took over the world the final chapter begins. Ayaan and Sarah, Dekalb's daughter, are both grown up now, still fighting against the undead when they meet the Tsarevich for the first time. In book one Mael mentioned that besides Gary there were two other undead with the capability to finish the human race. We met Nilla in book two so there is one left: the little boy, strapped to oxygen machines after a fatal car accident.
He calls himself the Prince of The Dead, people call him the Tsarevich. Cruel and possessed of gaining the power to do whatever he wants to do.
Everything has shifted: Now survivors have to fight against the dead and the living who think their leader is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
When Ayaan is captured, Sarah's only chance to rescue her is to follow the Tsarevich to the source. Little did she know her journey would change humanities future and give her a piece of her past when she meets her father for the first time in 12 years.
It all comes together in a fight of Mael and NIlla against the Tsarevich and Sarah against Mael. Will Nilla once again recognize her human side and help Sarah in a last attempt to give this world a future or will she decide that there is no future for the living or the dead ?
The last piece is the strongest one ! All characters came back to life in this book and it was exciting to read how Wellington managed to give their return a sense and purpose. Embedded with some magic and science-fiction this books carries you away in an instant and it's the strongest book in this trilogy.
I liked the ending which was predictable but absolutely reasonable. To get the full picture you just have to read all three books. I figure it wouldn't make sense to read the last one without the knowledge of the first three. :-)
A little spoiler needs to be left here. :-) The reader finally discovers what happened to Captain Bannerman Clark as Nilla returns together with the Tsarevich's army to the source. I don't say if I like it or not.
The finale in this epic zombie tale. Read all three or die.
