A note for those who may be interested: If you finished THE WORLDS WE MAKE wondering what happens after, I've released a collection of stories from the POVs of three secondary characters, set in the aftermath. Details here:

The books definitely progressed a lot from the first book to this one which I really liked because the book didn't feel stale. I loved the characters at first they were a bit bland but as the book went on they got their personal development which was good. Gavin, anika, and tobias didn't make it until the end which was a bit lame but made the story more interesting. Both tobias and gavin die because of the "friendly flue" and anika being shot because of the raiders who are Obviously scared and j ...more
2.5 stars - Spoilers

The ending was pretty good, everything else wasn't so good. I was bored most of the way through probably because things were a little too repetitive and dragged out. The first two-thirds could have been cut down to a couple of chapters, it really wouldn't have affected the overall story.

-What's what: Deadly disease, killed most of the population, everyone left either desperate or corrupt. Kae and her friends have a vaccine, they need to travel across America and avoid the bad

I went to my mom's house to waste time to see that this book had been delivered early!!
I immediately started to read it once I got to school!
I liked the previous two and I like this one just as much.
A good conclusion to a good story!!

1. The story! It was paced fairly well and there were ups and downs like the previous two and somethings were in the groups favor and others weren't, they didn't always win and when they did win, I was excited as they were. It was a fun and scar

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the finale. Usually, in books like these, everything isn't wrapped up in a bow. Because, let's face it, apocalyptic stories don't have happily ever afters. In rare cases, it does...sorta.

The Worlds We Make is a perfect example of how an apocalyptic story can have an ending that makes sense plot wise.

So much happened that I can't even explain it if I wanted to do a spoiler review. (this is a non spoiler review by the way.) Some sad things ha
I'd So Rather Be Reading {Nat}
I've been a fan of Megan Crewe's Fallen World series for years now, and I've been dying for book three to be released. I was so honored to get to read this book early, and I've been holding my tongue about just how good it was. Now I can tell you: this book was outstanding, and the perfect end to the Fallen World series!

The premise of the Fallen World series is really unique and captivating. The concept of the friendly flu is terrifyingly realistic. To think of a virus decimating the world the

This is an amazing conclusion to this series. It's fast paced and opens with the first chapter being a complete shock.

and it just gets more daring, dark and shocking from there. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Once I was done with Part II, I wasn't at all sure what was happening anymore.

This is a world come undone. And Kaelyn, Tobias, Anika, Justin and Leo are just trying to survive. Nothing is for sure except this vaccine and it's everything to this world that it start being made into mo

Lol.... that review.
Amazing I loved it, even though i didn't remember much from the first 2. I still loved it
I really enjoyed the Book series. The whole story was really nice. And as the last book of the series, this book was a fitting end. Sure, there were some things which did not feel right, like Kae moving on so fast with Gav, but the story as a whole was really great.

At the conclusion of Megan Crewe's The Lives We Lost, a hapless group of young people were leaving inhospitable Toronto to attempt to deliver a vaccine to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia in the hopes that the CDC would be able to mass produce the vaccine needed to save those uninfected with the widespread and deadly virus. The group, led by Kaelyn whose father had produced the

This series has taken my heart for a spin. There are moments of sheer terror, especially in the first book, The Way We Fall, where we're not sure if our main character will make it through. A virus threatening a small island, slowly escalating onto the main shore, seeping across Canada and creeping into the
I'm really not sure how to sum up my thoughts.

Sure, I could talk about the grey and gray morality. I could talk about the complex and nuanced themes explored. I could talk about how well Crewe handles grief. I could talk about how amazing of a protagonist Kaelyn is. I could talk about the diversity and the voice and the pacing and a whole bunch of things.

But I'm not gonna do that.

This is a fantastic book. I mean, this is a fantastic book, just like everything Megan Crewe writes. And no matter ho

Kaelyn and her group of survivors flee Toronto and the Wardens with the precious vaccine that could stop the "friendly flu" in its tracks. Making their way way through rough conditions and pursuers who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the vaccine, the group begins to fall apart. Resolved to get the vaccine into the right hands, Kaelyn is forced to confront issues of right and wrong in the midst of survival and, more terrifyingly, the question of whether there is the "right hands" for t ...more

These books are so boring . 210 pages felt like a freaking nightmare. I was just sluggishly running in slow motion.

The journey was boring. The characters were boring. The plot was just so damn boring I wanted to puke.

Kaelyn thought too much about every single action she took. She was always so worried about what Leo thought about her. And the balls on that kid to pass judgment... nuh uh. There is simply no time for being friendly and all "the world us essentially filled with good peop

I received this through First Reads Giveaways.

I'm marking it as read AND giving it five stars, even though I haven't finished it yet. I'm giving it five stars because so far, I love it, and I think it's going to continue to be amazing. However, I stopped reading it because I've never read the first two books, and once I started reading it and began to see how much I was going to like it, I had to stop and wait until I could find copies of the first two books.

However, I didn't want to NOT leave

The Worlds We Make is the third book to an exciting trilogy. The main character Kaelyn's mission through out the book is to find a doctor somewhere in the world still alive that can make more of her vaccine that her dad made before his passing. This deadly disease is spreading quickly starting off on a tiny island but now spreading across the world. Kaelyn and her group of friends are walking across Canada. They are trying to stay on the down low as their is another group of people that are pote ...more

Although I enjoyed how it eventually wrapped up, there were too many flat spots for me. The same scenes and scenarios hashed out over and over. I wanted to love it, but settled for a mild liking instead. A fair chunk of the original storyline was left with loose ends, the fate of characters being one of them.

A relentless, hope-filled conclusion to a stand out YA series. Unlike most dystopian sagas, this one feels completely plausible. There are no pulled punches or easy answers. Just a group of kids living second to second, searching for hope. People die. And people live. And life goes on. Read this series ...

A wonderful and satisfying conclusion to an inventive and thought-provoking series. I loved the fact that Kaelyn has to make so many hard choices, and the exploration of what humanity really means, especially during a crisis.

Need this now. Wish I could get an ARC!! GAV!!!!

February 2014:
4.5 starts!
Finished this book in one sitting. Was a great ending to a great trilogy!! Worth the wait for sure. Very happy with how all the characters turned out, and felt the ending was true and real. Loved it!

Awesome end to an awesome trilogy. Tension ratchets higher. Already impossible circumstances become even more impossible. Highly recommended for fans of sciencey-fiction, thrillers or just plain good books.
MARCH 1 2013:
You expect me to wait a whole year for this? Is this a joke? No way. No way. I WANT THIS NOW. There's not even a title. At least give me a title! My heart is broken. Ugh.

Once again, it wasn't bad. I liked the writing and it did keep me reading. However, several things (spoilers):

1. the way author handled Gav's death was seriously awful. Not talking about the actual death here, but more likely the way Kae "went on" after it. Yes, she did think about him. But literally a while after that (idk, maybe like two days in the story?) she's snuggling to Leo and being like "omg it'd be so nice to make out with him... but wait, Gav died just a few days ago" and then at the

Megan Crewe is a genius at weaving authentic emotional journeys into tightly paced thriller plots. Her characters are instantly recognizable but not tired or rehashed; love her exposure of character inner lives, struggles and uniquenesses including empathetic portrayals of diverse personality types. She seems to portray teens incredibly well (but I'm in my 30s, so my ability to assess this may be limited, lol). Generally on the 'clean' side of YA; light, natural-seeming romance without any expli ...more

The Worlds We Make by Megan Crewe is about there was this virus going around Kaelyn is trying to find a scientist to get rid of the virus. Also, I do like the book so far. Therefore I think people will really enjoy the book. Kaelyn finds herself compromising herself morals to keep her group alive. They stole the SUV from someone just to get and try to find a scientist. They left the rest of the group where they found the SUV at.

I listened to this because it was on RBDigital and I thought, being an end of the work book, it would be more was more like a high school drama where a the decision of whether or not to enjoy a hug was the most important decision anyone could make.

Like many authors, Megan Crewe finds writing about herself much more difficult than making things up. A few definite facts: she lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband and son (and does on occasion say "eh"), she tutors children and teens with special needs, and she's spent the last six years studying kung fu, so you should probably be nice to her. She has been making up stories about magic and ...more
