Flat out, Eliza Green has taken science fiction, fantasy, survival and deceit above and beyond the limits of the planet Earth! Crimson Dawn, Ms. Green’s final book in the Exilon 5 Trilogy is a fantasy/sci-fi reader’s dream!

The mastermind of genetic alterations plots to assure he will be a survivor of both Earth’s demise and his own human frailties. There is no one more devious than Charles Deighton who has stacked the deck, hopefully in his favor.

Meanwhile, on Exilon 5, a stranger has joined the

Crimson Dawn is the third novel in the Exilon 5 near future scifi trilogy. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

On Exilon 5, much has changed in the aftermath of the explosive climax of book two, Altered Reality. Indigenes in District Three are in turmoil. Pierre is in self-imposed seclusion. Anton is clearly not himself, but how and why remains a mystery. Stephen tries to help but suffers from bewildering, uncontrolled visions. Serena, a newcomer, helps him with his visions but th

The colonization of the planet Exilon 5 by the World Government is now only a matter of time. But opinions differ largly on this matter. It's also not clear how to deal with the indigenous people of the planet. And although the Indigens face a possible destruction of their society, they are also struggling with different problems.

In general, this book is loaded with numerous conflicts. And that's what has made it well worth reading for me. I find it remarkable that the "good guys" are not only g

Received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads

Just received Crimson Dawn in the mail today! Can't wait to start reading it, which I will right away :D I just finished reading Becoming Human and Altered Reality last week, they were sooo good, so I'm eager to start reading the last book in the Exilon 5 trilogy!

I just finished reading Crimson Dawn and I'm reaaally impressed! This book was a very good way to wrap up the Exilon 5 trilogy. There were several moments that made me go:

Although not as good as the first 2 books it was a fitting end to a fantastic series. I wish there were more of them but will definitely be looking to see what else the author has done

Firstly I wish to thank the author for offering this book for an honest review.
Phenomenal story, after reading the first two novels I needed to know what the fate of the indigene would be, how Selene fit in and what would happen to Laura and Bill. Would Stephen develop his power for seeing the future, would Anton be free of Deighton's hold, would Pierre heal? And what about Ms Tanya Li, for a woman who wields so much power, she is easly swayed by Bill's character or is it because he can profile

The third book in the "Becoming Human" trilogy, this one occurs both on Earth and on Exilon 5 as humans and indigenes make decisions on how or if they can coexist. Indigenes continue to evolve, and Charles Deighton modifies the indigene Anton to disrupt their society while also modifying a human that is also put into their community.

The trilogy is fast-moving and shows how indigenes evolve and use a powerful force called Nexus to link their race. As you might expect, there is a confrontation, b
I can't keep saying I'm not normally a Sci-Fic reader, since I haven't read much Sci-Fic since my teen years. Yes I'm a character reader and Eliza Green really gets into character development, but as I've read more & more 200+ books annually, I really have learned to appreciate the "painting with words" of setting. This is the one area that Eliza Green needs improvement on! It took me a while to settle into the trilogy, the character development carried me through, in this, the third book of ...more

The concluding book to this intense series

For a very intense and compelling series, the conclusion in the last couple of chapters is an acceptable resolution and relief from the multiple conflicts.

As a whole, Eliza Green keeps up the intensity of her first two books in the Exilon 5 series. Which is perfect!

On a personal note, because the villain, Charles Deighton contacted and threatened me personally, I really hope Ms. Green does not believe in reincarnation. You know to what I'm referring, E

A fine ending to a fine trilogy

I must admit that I wasn't enamored of this series at first. But it grew on me, book by book. All of the loose ends have been tidied up and it looks like all will be for the best.

Still, there is room for additional stories in this series and I would be glad to read them.

In Eliza Green's dystopian future, the whole world is white and every country's citizenry speaks with Irish idiomatic phrases. She leaves so many plot holes, so many things unexplained that it's a constant distraction throughout the series. I did read the whole series, and it was just okay. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I really stayed interested in the three books until the end.

The characters were believable and followed through all 3 books. Sometimes with a trilogy books 2 and 3 are not as good as the first book. Not the case here. I loved all three.

I liked the whole series. This final book seemed a little ragged in the last few chapters with the ending, but it is a good ending. That did not take away from my enjoyment of the book which has a dynamite plot.

A dystopian must read

This has been one of the best written dystopian future books I have ever read. I usually do not read sci-fi outer space type books but this trilogy is a must read!!
