You ever grab a book, read part of the description and know you want to read it - only to find out that it is not the first in the series it is part of? I have had this happen on occasion and this is one of them.

Even though I have not read the first two books of this series (at 27% in, I purchased both), this book was very enjoyable. It is also very well done, giving enough information so that the reader is not confused if they either hadn't read the first two books or hadn't read them in a whil

Where's the deep description of Tess' s surroundings? Where's the feeling you get when you read about a character you feel you're in their place? Where's that feeling or ability to relate with the character? What about reading the words between the lines? Where's the umph you want in a book? The shocks? What about those moments were you are meant to break down and just cry with the character? Where's the joy in reading??????

This was really good. Also really, really sad. A lot of great characters lost along the way, but that's to be expected in this ravaged world. The ending was bitter sweet for me.

A dystopian trilogy I'd definitely recommend.

I can not give a 5 stars not because i do not love the book just because of the ending. Creator is the last book from the series The Lost Souls, is just an amazing series, so different then everything else i have read. It's a YA/Fantasy with lots of adventure, mystery and romance, but more important it does not have any of the fantasy characters that you guys have read until now (no vampire, zombies, demons, faeries and so on), this book is only with people (yes is fantasy).

The first thing that crossed my mind when I finished Creators was, "why? Why did you have to hurt my feelings, Tiffany Truitt?" I mean the ending was good, and this was a fantastic conclusion, but it was sad as heck. The character growth was excellent and organic; the plot was intense and full of emotion; the writing was beautiful; and the ending tied everything up nicely. Still, I just don't see why it had to be so sad. Sigh.

The characters all evolved a lot n this novel, and I felt like Tess r

A thrilling, unpredictable, and wonderful conclusion to a great series, Creators was a fantastic read. It was a perfect ending to the series and definitely doesn't disappoint. Really enjoyed this one.

Tess truly came into her own in this book. She decided that it was time for her to take charge of her own life and refused to let anyone else tell her differently. And, she certainly proved herself as a heroine. I thought she was wonderful in this book.

James was just as sweet. We don't see much of h

Creators is the third and final installment in The Lost Souls trilogy. This has been intriguing from the start we met Tess, her sisters and James, and so many other amazing characters. It picks up right where Naturals leaves off, Tess with her father, but not with one she wants to be with. Being separated from James is tortuous for her, she misses him so much. And her father hides things from her, only giving her pieces of the truth, and this just makes their relationship that much harder. The

I received a copy of Creators, book 3 of The Lost Souls, in exchange for my review.

Having been separated from James by the Chosen One that hates her, George, reunited with her father who she thought was dead, and discovered her younger sister, Louisa, is pregnant, something that in their world is a death sentence, Tess' world has been turned upside down. Tess wants to fight, but not the same way that her father and her best friend wan

When I agreed to review this book, I wanted to see if I could understand at least some of it without reading it’s predecessors. I feel that if you can start a book in the middle or end of a series/ trilogy, and it is good, then that is one good book. Creators lived up to that, seeing as I enjoyed reading it.

We start off with Tess who is trying to figure out what happened to her father (I didn’t read the previous book, but this picks up after that). They find refuge at a compound that Tess has be

Oh. My. Wow! I am stunned and I think hungover by this trilogy! As a final installment in this series it was... EPIC! So much goes down and revelations turn it all on it's head.

Everything you thought you had figured out is put to the test in this book. I loved every second of this read!! And I cried! I cried hard and I am thinking I ugly cried for a few minutes too! Very gut wrenching but I think change is harsh and sacrifice is brave...

The plot is unique and very creative. I was pretty angry f

I received a copy of this book via the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion in any way.

Well, THAT took me by surprise. Going into the first book, Chosen Ones, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this series. There wasn’t anything particularly bad about the book, I just got that “oh this is going to be like every other dystopian/post-apocalyptic book series I’ve read”. And yet, Tiffany Truitt was able to breathe life into a genre that has been done over and ov

Creators is the finale to The Lost Souls trilogy. It is a story that I found to be a pleasantly, pleasing final novel with plenty of surprises, and action to keep me entertained right until the very last page.

Yesterday I finished Creators. It was a nice book, however a lot of characters die, which I didn't like so much. But well this comes with dystopia. What I missed was that when a battle actually happened we don't get any detailed description about it. We get to know only who died. What I loved was how Tess at the same time was vulnerable and strong. She let herself feel unlike some characters in other books who just shut down their emotions. I like the ending very much. Yes it is sad but still ho ...more

An explosive and emotional ending to the Lost Souls Trilogy. The finale leaves you shocked and content with how the series ends.

NO WAY!! I can’t believe the lead up to the final moments in this book (& the series)

I have a love hate relationship with series conclusions. I will ALWAYS want to know what happens next when I read a book. When I picked up Chosen Ones 2 and a half years ago, I knew I would read this series until its completion. Chosen Ones was such an incredible read. It had the forbidden romance, the defying of government, the people with amazing unbelievable powers... I remember reading it in little to no time & then tel

Creators is a pretty great ending to this trilogy! It did drag in places, but I found the end quite spectacular, since I didn’t expect it. It’s an outcome that many authors tend to shy away from, so it was sad, but a nice change that still fit the story. It picks up immediately where Naturals left off, with Tess facing her father. It’s not exactly a heartfelt reunion, since he’s not the man she remembers, and she’s no longer a little girl. Of course, he’s the head of the revolution, and that is ...more

Creators, the third book in Tiffany Truitt's dystopian saga of love, loss, and survival, Tess' story delves further into questions that matter not only to a young woman trying to survive in a world that has decided her kind is worth less than nothing, but resound in modern daily life as well: what does it mean to be a family, what makes someone human, how does love change a person, and what exactly is this thing called womanhood, and how can or should it define one.

Warning: This review contains spoilers.

I want to start off by saying although I did not enjoy the third book in this trilogy, I greatly enjoyed the first book. I found myself enthralled by the world and the characters in Chosen Ones . Specifically, I enjoyed watching the relationship between Tess and James grow. The usage of quotes from Frankenstein was very well implemented, and I really felt a connection between these characters. That being said, I don't understand why the author just dec

This is the final book in the lost souls series and wow.......not sure what to say. I just finished reading the book and I am filled with so many emotions.

It begins where the second book left off. Tess is now with her father and is trying to figure out what happened to him and how he is there. They need to find a place to stay and eventually, they end up at the compound where Tess, Henry, and Robert went to with Eric and McNair. Tess is missing James and is able to write to him as he is also abl

Another great book which wraps up the series really well. I loved not just the cover but the book. Hell I really enjoyed the series. It's different, and fast and.... yeah it blew me away.

If you want a fast paced, book this is the one for you. Hell the whole series is. Start from the beginning and spend the afternoon, or a few days reading till the end and then you will see what I mean.

Tess really stood out in this book. She took charge of her life and refused to let anyone tell her what to do. S

Thank you to Entangled and the author for a copy of this book...

Cover: I liker her hair...


Her father is such a son of a B... I really don't like him, I really wanted to punch him and his twisted ideas...

I'm proud that Tess was at least able to say what she really thinks...


Anyways, as for the story it was alright... I'm not really a fan of Dystopias but now and then I don find some books, that make me think twice of that view... I can't say that I love this book but I do like it.

I really liked this series in general and this last one was great. I think that it left a little open of imagination and I personally love that about a book. However, I feel like maybe a little more depth in the whole ending would have been good, I feel it left us wondering what happened. The epilogue explains some but I still was left with a little hole that was not yet completed.
Great cover, great story line, and over all good writing.

Thanks Tiffany Truitt.

I thought that this book was really fun and interesting. It's flying under the radar but should be brought alight. It's a good story plot and great characters. The main characters were interesting and not annoying. Although I was upset that this was the third book and I had yet to read the others and didn't know it was until I already started to read it lol

I found this to be completely predictable and annoying. The timeline was jumpy and hard to follow at times. Tess was annoying being her usual whiney self. I found most of it to be pointless to the story line. The ending was crap. And its not the only reason i didn't like this book. I really enjoyed the first two but I hated this one.

Such a great ending to the trilogy. Everything that I was missing in the second book was here and it all makes sense now. Just finished it and I'm not sure what else to say but wow. Great job Tiffany! Can't wait to see what else you do.

WTF?! After all that running around and "I love James so much" whining she ends it like that? Less than half way through I felt like skipping to the end just to get it over with but didn't. Should have.
