Sarah and Kian have ended up on Tresco.

This is it, the finale of one stage of life and the beginning of another for Sarah and those she loves. The vile president is on their tails, hoping to end their rebellion against him as they uncover the lies he has lived as an imposing leader of Dartmoor. Hiding out with the townsfolk, Sarah has saved her true love, Jinn from the torture and cruel experiments that President Jacob has imposed on him, but can he survive or has he been damaged beyond saving? With a heavy heart and a determined min ...more
I received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.

The final (nooooess) book in this series.

Just like the previous book this book is told from two POVs, Kian's and Sarah's. As those who read my review for the first book know, I didn't like Kian. And I have to say that the first few parts with him were him being a jealous ass again. But, yes but, he turns around. I quite liked him as his chapters went by, as the pages that featured him in the Sarah POVs passed by. He showed anot

Good ending to a very good series. Loved finding out more about the characters we grew to love in book one. While book two is not all sunshine and roses what part of life is. I really enjoy how the author incorporates things into this series.

Having read the whole of the Island Series and the Dartmoor Chronicles book one I was looking forward to revisiting the characters and places in the series' as well as having some of my questions answered.

The cover shows the vastness of the sea and features what I would call an old fashioned ship prominently on the cover. The cover fits well with both the other Dartmoor Chronicle's title, Beyond the Fence and the covers for The Island Series.

Sarah, Jinn and Kian have finally reached the island; and Jinn is happily reunited with his father. But their happiness is short lived when they learn that they were set up and was followed by the president. They take all the people and go hide out in caves but with their food and supplies running low someone has to make a run for it. So Sarah and Kian are the chosen ones and find another way out of the caves to go find help on another island.

This is an awesome finish to the series. Lots of heartache and tears some losses but then some reunions. The sage ends with healing and new friends, compromise and changes. The way this author brings this dystopian world together and answers all of the questions and open ends are taken care of. Family members are found and so is love. This is a very emotional read in many ways and most definitely good. I am not a big fan of dystopian reads but I am so glad I read this one. The imagery this autho ...more

Picks up where the last book left off with a few surprises. The story wraps up nicely, but with some loss and sadness. Things are not perfect, but there is change and at least they were able to accomplish what they ultimately set out to do. I like that at the end, Sarah and Kian remain true to themselves even as they grow.

I had not read the first series, but do intend to as I would like to get to know some of the characters that were mentioned in this one.

This is apparently the final book in the Island/Dartmoor series, and it wraps up the loose ends pretty well. I enjoyed it as much as the previous Dartmoor book, although I don't find Sarah and Kian as interesting as Walt and Leia for some reason. This story is alternately narrated by Sarah and Kian again. They have brought Jinn home to Tresco, but have been followed by the Dartmoor soldiers. The Dartmoor president wants to abduct more islanders for medical tests, to try to determine why they are ...more

taking over where Beyond the Fence left off, we see a return to Tresco as Sarah and Kian and the remaining residents are forced into hiding .

It had a slow start, but when it picked up, it really picked up. This was a great end to the whole series.
