Holy crap! Ik had niet verwacht dat ik ZO enthousiast zou worden van deze serie!
Boek 1 (Het experiment): Okeeee, leuk verhaal...
Boek 2 (Het verzet): Wauw, dit is al een stuk beter!
Het was zo ontzettend spannend, zoveel verrassingen en onverwachte wendingen dat ik echt zat te denken 'huh, is dit Persefone?' De andere boeken waren echt heel anders... Zeker een aanrader voor iedereen! Het deed me een beetje aan 'De Doodskuur', het laatste de

The whole serie is not that new or awesome but I really enjoy my reading. The characters are both great and mature and fun. The action is here, I didn't see the page turning.

I've finished this book in one day! On 4,5 hours of train travel to be precise.

This book was better in getting me awake than a cup of coffee (it was really really early this morning). I flipped pages like a manic on the train, the suspence and everything that was happening in this book, it was SO GOOD.

Bit I really did not like the ending. (view spoiler)

This is the first book in this trilogy that I was fully able to enjoy. Maybe I was just in the right mood for it this time. The first two books just didn’t have the epic amount of action and adventure that this book did. There was some romantic stuff, but it wasn’t the most important thing. I really liked that Noa and Peter were back together for this book. They are both amazing hackers (and Zeke was too). They have great dialogue. Also Teo and Daisy are so cute together. All their dialogue is l ...more

A fast-paced exhilarating ride! Loved this book. I missed the first two in the trilogy but the author did a fabulous job of weaving in just enough back story to let you know what had transpired in the first two books.

Noa's health is failing and she and her three friends are being hunted. They're living out of abandoned projects and trying to evade being detected. They're some of the last remaining members from Persephone's Army alive. They believe Charles Pike is responsible for the outbreak of

This book was amazing!
I was kind of disappointed when I finished it, because:
1. This is the final book in this trilogy.
2. I wanted to read this book for months and it finished.
3. I didn't like the ending.

Why didn't I like the ending?
I don't like Zeke. That's why. And if you have read the book, you'll probably know why I didn't like the ending. I'm not telling you anything because of spoilers, if you are a curious reader and haven't read this book yet, but want to know a bit more about it. This

This book is about Noa and Peter. They are running from P&D because whenever they find a place to stay the next day P&D always finds them. Noa and Peter are carrying around hard drives which hold they keys to getting into P&D project. P&I'd have so much money that every day they send people to hunt down Noa and no matter what Noa does they Always seem to find her. If you like this book I would recommend the Michel bay series by Richard Paul Evans.

This one is better than the second one but falls woefully short of the first in the trilogy. I am finding that to be the case lately. Anyone else?

I think I would have been much happier without the entire last chapter. Gagnon loves to use big words. I mentioned that in my previous review of the second book. She unpacked her adjectives without a doubt.

I am interested to see what else she has out there.
Mar 30, 2014 Senator rated it it was amazing
I stand by my initial read/ reaction which was, "Perfect! Just perfect!!" Because of so many things, this is my favorite of the trilogy and Gagnon is a talented, talented genius.

This is a MUST READ for YA thriller fans!

Thank you to the author (Michelle Gagnon) for an ARC to be used for honest bookseller/ review purposes.

I liked the pace of it but I was sad that some characters pretty much disappeared at the end. I liked how even though the kids were only high school sophomores (Daisy and Teo), they were always thinking. I guess I could say that I hoped for a different ending and I would have liked to know about Mason.

Otherwise everything wrapped up pretty nicely and there was enough left for another book.

Guess it was ok, though the ending kindda bugged me. Why does the evil mastermind really feel the need to give a detailed account of his evildoing? and though I am a sucker for a happy ending, this did feel a little forced.

Mon avis: Comme vous le savez j'avais adoré les deux premiers tomes de cette série Thriller, c'est avec une très grande impatience que j'attendais cet ultime tome et je peux vous dire que j'ai également adoré celui-ci. Tout y est, de l'action, du suspens, des personnages que j'ai adoré et une intrigue que je qualifierais de fantastique, le tout donne de quoi passer un excellent moment de lecture.

Du coté de l'histoire: Nous retrouvons nos héros là où nous les avions laissé à la fin du second tom

Minä en voi mitenkään käsittää, miksi tämän mahtavan jännäritrilogian suomentaminen on jätetty kesken ensimmäisen osan jälkeen. Ihan pöljää, jos minulta kysytään. Sarja on pitänyt minut mukana otteessansa heti alusta loppuun saakka, eikä trilogian toisessa osassakaan tullut tyypillistä notkahdusta. Tämä kolmas osa on myös aivan omaa luokkaansa, jännitystä täynnä, ovelia juonenkäänteistä ja yllätyksiä.

Noa, Peter, Daisy ja Teo ovat yhdessä pakomatkalla ympäri Yhdysvaltoja, mutta jotenkin kummasti

I have been following this trilogy since it first came out. I knew after reading the first book that I would forever love this trilogy that Michelle Gagnon perfectly crafted. I feel like mystery suspense are more of my cup of tea. I love the idea of books grabbing my attention and keeping me on my toes.

The book flowed so well. I never wanted to put it down. I do have to admit that I did watch where I was going because I slowly became paranoid that people were watching me. This is crazy that the

Ce dernier tome est bien, même très bien, comparé au précédent où il ne s'était pas passé grand chose. Il y a beaucoup plus de courses poursuites, d'échappées belles, de traques et de sauvetages.

Cependant , je crois que j'attendais plus pour le dernier tome de cette trilogie. J'attendais un twist final qui n'est jamais arrivé. J'en attendais tellement plus de la part de Mason, ce personnage si subtilement bien construit au début de la série tombe à plat vers la fin, son charisme machiavélique a

It's the end of the line for our teenager hackers turned super heroes. Nora's clock is ticking, as she fights the aftermath of her abduction in the second novel. With her failing health, she is more determined than ever to stop the evil madman. Just trying to write the synopsis for this book reminds me how outlandish the plot is, but I still cannot help but enjoy this series. Sure, it's as out there as an A

The story: Charles Pike is one of the richest men in the world. He's murdered hundreds to try to find a cure for the disease that's killing his daughter. The solution to his problem lies in Noa Torson--who, with Peter Gregory, remains stubbornly on the run, always eluding Pike and his personal army of mercenaries. But Pike's got all the money there is, powerful friends in high places, and his personal evil minion, Mason, to do his bidding, while the kids just have their brains. Pretty uneven con ...more

What you're in for: On the run. Hacking. Action. Traps. Surprises. Disappointment.

My Thoughts:
This book was a big disappointment. I really enjoyed Don't Turn Around (the first book in the series) and thought this was going to be a great trilogy. Unfortunately, though, it all went downhill after the first book. I didn't care for Don't Look Now (the second book). But, I thought that it was just a filler book and suffered from the oh-so-common "middle book syndrome." So, I still wanted

Noa barely escaped the men of Pike & Dolan, but she has lost her army. Theo and Daisy are the only other survivors. Peter has ran away from home and joins them. He has the disks that contain crucial information The men of P&D always manage to find them, therefore they don’t have the time to hack the disks. They do not have much time because Noa’s health keeps getting worse. The loss of Zeke falls heavily on her, but she also suffers from the extra thymus.

Noa Torson and Peter continue their compelling and action-packed journey in the conclusion to the Persefone series. In this third and final book, Noa, and Peter are on the run with what remains of the rest of thier team and are in a race against time.

Now that the story has concluded, I find that I'm pretty pleased with the way the story ended. There was action, romance and at times, heart-pounding goodness. I have to say though I expected to feel more strongly for this one than I did. Maybe the
I liked this book a LOT better than the second. This book brought Noa and Peter back together, and their friendship was something that I really enjoyed from the first book. Having them back together and vulnerable, like in the first book, made this so much better.

I liked the series as a whole, especially because it is about a girl. Not that we are short on series with a girl at the center, but because of the premise. I love that something so tech-centric stars a girl like Noa.

This book was a great conclusion to the PERSEFoNE series. It really builds up the tension that had already been building in the past two books, and it just gets better when the tension breaks. It had been a couple of years since I read the first two books in the series, so I didn't remember all of the series's details too well. Despite that, I was able to quickly become involved in the story and care about the characters once more. I am grateful to Michelle Gagnon for writing books this good. Th ...more

I haven't read much of novel, but it is my new favorite young adult novel now.

The character development was great. The chemistry between lead male & female character was awesome.
Climax was quite plain & simple, but it's fine by me since the story didn't set up to be that EPIC.

There's lack of plot and some sense, but it didn't irritate much.

I would recommend you to read if you like techno-stuff,lots of action,hiding, escaping, also a bit of romance.

I agree that the ending is too delightfu

The final installment of the Persefone series is just as amazing and enthralling as the other books in the series. I was constantly finding myself both marveling at the amazing talent Michelle Gagnon possesses for writing and how tense i was throughout the trilogy. Constantly grabbing your heart by the collar and shooting it forward, the series really made me feel attached to the characters. When Noa became gravely injured at end of the book, i couldn't help but proclame "No! Noa cant die now af ...more

This series was so great. But this book ugh , the ending was extremely disappointing .okay I guess for some it's a happy ending and everything closed well. But for people who think like me they will be very passed. The ending was "good" but the opposite of what I wanted. Really want to give the book star, though the book was good. One huge aspect kills me. I don't know maybe I'm the only person thinking like this but Zeke was supposed to stay dead, Peter and Noa wer
