Truancy City by Isamu Fukui Review

I don’t know what else to say except for… I love this book! If you want action, a little love, confusion, loyalty, freedom etc. then this is the trilogy for you! Seriously, what better book for teenagers then one about students leaving school (and becoming truants) to fight against the City for their unjust laws? And best of all...there are no CLIFFHANGERS! The truants have hope for the City to be saved and a new generation to rise.

One thing that stuck with me in this book is a scene where the albino woman says that things for the City had come full circle and it did in a way. I loved most of the characters, their stories and how the book was written. However, much of it was very cliched, especially towards the end, which I found very unsatisfactory. Still, I like this book overall. Though it comes across as cliched and romanticized, it includes things and concepts that I think most stories should have.

So this one is significantly better than the first one, but that's not saying much. There is one character who isn't completely annoying, Cross. However, with the exception of one small character, everyone at the end is revealed to be a good guy in some way. The bad guys were all trying to save everyone. The good guys didn't realize this and were fighting for what seemed to be a good cause. Almost everyone is redeemed, yet the ending feels really unsatisfying and not happy. The story in this boo ...more
Wait...what? This is the end of the series? No, it can't possibly end like that. There's gotta be another adventure lined up somewhere!
An interesting end to the Trance saga. The Trance and the Student Militia find themselves banding together to fight a new enemy, the Government. They've figured out that the city was an experiment that failed and the Government is now ready to demolish it once and for all.

Umasi's sister Iris is the general leading the fight and Umasi now has to decide is he's going to join her or fight against her. All the characters from the previous novels are back, and while they don't all get a happy ending

oh man how can one book hurt someone so much
this has the typical dystopia 3rd book feel where everything is an all out war
but this was done so well and the characters are all so complex and AH
milady like that was the biggest plot twist ever i dont think i could have ever predicted that happening like man you immediately knew who the dad was but MAN did i not see that coming
noni my child i just want to put you somewhere safe
Utter crap. What a horrible ending to what would've been a great trilogy. No one I know likes this book, I don't understand how the rating is so high.
CRAP!! They really need to let us give these books more than five stars, and I would have to say that this is the absolute best book I have ever read! I won't do much of a review for spoiler alerts, but you really need to read this!!!!!!!
A really excellent conclusion to the Truancy trilogy. Keeps you one the edge of your seat till the very last page. The end is nothing like you'd expect!

Amazing!!! I cried at the end. I also gave this series the song iridescent by Linkin Park.
A satisfying action-packed conclusion to a great YA trilogy, especially for guys.
