Oh, my! How far we've come in three years! State of Destruction is really the beginning of the end of the Collapse Series, and it takes Cassidy Hart and her comrades into some of the deepest, darkest places they've ever gone before. I hope you enjoy it. :)

First of all, big thank you for letting me read the advanced copy. This is the series that got me into this genre and no other series has lived up to the Collapse series. The saddest thing is that ever new book is one more closer to the end of the series and then the end of Cassidy Hart. I cannot connect with any character more than her. I cannot get into the Day Zero books as I have gotten into the Collapse books. However, the good thing about new books is...well....NEW BOOKS! I swear I have a ...more

**I received an ARC for my honest review.**
If you don't already know, this is book #7 in a series, and if you haven't read the previous books, you're gonna be lost. I highly encourage everyone to read this series though. Anywho, on to the review!
Book 6 left us with the Angels of Death leaving Sky City, only to walk into a whole new world. A world even more terrifying than what they'd been living and fighting in since Omega invaded North America 2 years before. It seems that Omega finally decided

I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review*
This is the 7th book in the Collapse Series, and in my opinion the best one yet. I feel that as the series has gone on Ms. Lane has really refined her writing voice and character development. This book is non stop action and at the same time deep character development. It is darker than the previous books in the series. We see the impact of war and constant trauma on the individual characters, particularly Cassidy and Chris, and the impact of

This book is absolutely insane. Between the relentless action, harrowing war sequences, and the absolute bottoming out of Cassidy's character as she becomes completely separated from the person she once was, this is without a doubt the darkest entry in this series. Moral gray areas abound as people wrestle with internal conflicts one after the another, and as we watch the militias fight for their lives and start taking the fight to Omega, we begin to see their pure motives begin to crack under t ...more

Usually by book #7 of a series I am just skimming through to get to the end because by this time I am super bored of the characters and the same ol' thing happening over and over. BUT!!!!! not this time. These characters are constantly evolving and growing and there is not a boring sentence in this book. I am chomping at the bit for book #8.

Wow wow WOW!

For me, this has been the best book in the Collapse Series. I constantly found myself hurrying through what I was reading just so I could see what was going to happen next. This one is definitely a page turner. Cannot wait for the next one! This really leaves ya hangin'!

Best series yet!

With every book that comes out, it gets better! The tension that is happening with the love story next to the tension of war is great with how the author puts it. It is full of excitement and keeps me at the edge of my seat! I cannot wait for the next one to come out.

This seventh installment is darker than the others are. Omega is always a few steps ahead... Hope is dream difficult to hold but the team keeps battling on even if the odds are not on their favor... And that's what differentiates them from the Omega! Keep on Summer Lane cannot wait for the next one....

Awesome series from beginning to #7..I'm very happy that my time with Cassidy is not over, but now I will have to wait until the next book. This series literally gets better and better and better..I love it. I'd recommend to anyone I know who enjoys reading!

I so enjoyed every book in this series. Can't hardly wait for the next one. You are one of them in the war and survival. Love is happening. Commitment is the first that comes to mind.

Pre-ordered so I got it early ( guess that was the reason ) . It was so good, really kept me interested in seeing what was going to happen next. I love this series, can't wait till the next one.

And the suspense continues.

Cassidy is in and out of trouble and survives more than probability would suggest possible but the author keeps making it believable.

Book 7 Did NOT Disappoint!

Just like the past six installments of the Collapse Series, State of Destruction, was fantastic! I loved being in the world of Cassidy's again. A world that could so easily be a reality making it all the more terrifying. Omega is as strong as ever but The Militias, Cassidy, will not give up hope. I was enthralled to the very end not only by the action (which was packed in to the max) but also by the character development of Commander Hart, Commander Young, Uriah and th

**I received an ARC for an honest review** OMG! A lot of times when you're seven books into a series it starts to get mundane and/or you're just "done" with it. Not true with this book! Cassidy has been through SO much by now and this book is NO exception! You really are starting to question just how deep Omega is and who is or may be Omega. I don't know where Summer Lane will be taking us next but, I'll definitely be on board to see where this goes. All the while hoping that someday some happin ...more

Cassidy Hart and her team are back at it, trying to save the world from Omega one battle at a time. This book definitely gets a little darker than some of it's predecessors and Cassie herself is definitely developing a sharper edge than ever before. I love how real these characters all see, how appropriate their reactions always are to any given situation. I am so ready for the next book in this series, the cliffhangers get me every time.

The Collapse is real! Such a great series!

I could not be more impressed with a series than Summer Lane's Collapse series. This seventh entry is so very intense. Cassie is struggling for her life, her freedom, her country and her love. It is all going down in the most disastrous struggle yet..

If you have not read this series yet you are missing one of the top apocalypse series of all out there now. So read it and get in on the excitement!

Always edge of seat with Summer Lane books,I can't wait for the next book. Summer writes with an easy to read style and always keeps me reading on to find out what's happening next to the character's. I am also looking forward to the Bravo Saga another gripping series to look forward to.
