Just one month until ALONE hits stores. Get those pre-orders in, my friends, because this trilogy goes out with a bang.

Today we finished principle recording on the ALONE audiobook. We're really excited to finish the trilogy in style and entertain the hell out of you.

“You revere it so much you want to show it off. I was made to heal. You? You were made to kill. You are death.”

The end of The Generations Trilogy and I've been reeling in my thoughts. It gets hard to review a series as you get to the final book because you don't want to reveal spoilers, but then how do you discuss the plot when in the final book practically all plot lines are spoilers from the first two books? That is the challenge. The jist of the series is this: a teenage girl woke in a co

Alone is a wonderful, satisfying ending to The Generations Trilogy!

Sigler had me at the beginning of The Generations Trilogy in Alive when he started out with Em waking up in a COFFIN! He grabbed my attention from the first pages, and then never let up all the way through to the end of Alone!

I've always been a huge sci-fi fan and space ships, new planets to explore, and aliens are huge favorites. Sigler took all of these items and created a spectacular unique version which I enjoyed immensely.

Wow. Scott Sigler. You have outdone yourself! I honestly didn't know what to expect with this final book (which made me both excited and nervous) and was partly the reason why I took two months reading it!
But boy, was it worth it.

Em's journey was truly a long one and what an astounding and exhilirating ride it was! Alive shocked me, Alight made me even more shocked, and Alone made filled me with emtions: h

Scott Sigler has set the stage for intergalactic war heading into Alone, the final leg of the Generations trilogy. Em, Bishop, Spingate, Gaston, and the other Birthday Children have subdued the planet Omeyocan and learned to live at peace with the Springer alien race, but the danger is far from passed. Matilda Savage and the rest of the Grownups hover in orbit on the Xolotl starship, awaiting their opportunity to abduct the Birthday Children and overwrite their own consciousnesses into them.

When I first started this series and the birthday children woke up in their coffins, I never expected the story to take the twists and turns it did. That's one of my favorite things about this series. It's so unpredictable and you never know what they're going to encounter from one chapter to the next. It's like Sigler says, hey 'I know the readers are going to expect this and this to happen, so I'm going to do the exact opposite and keep them off balance.' This last book is no different.

After reading some reviews I know I'm in the minority. I'm actually struggling to review this. I'm having a very WTF was that moment after finishing this. I will agree with other reviews that the ending was satisfying, but satisfying isn't memorable. Not exactly what I hoped for but it was an ending that I think many readers will appreciate. I wholeheartedly state that the battle scenes in this book were epic, vivid, strategic, bloody, and highly descriptive. They were the building force that pu ...more

I've never reviewed a book before, but Wow! I've followed Scott Sigler since his first podcast-only novel Earthcore & have read everything he's written. The Generations Trilogy demonstrates the enormity of his talent & skill as a writer and leaves me breathlessly waiting for his next work. This trilogy is full of suspense, surprise, drama, excitement, novelty, innovation, maturity, & an impressive understanding of humanity at all life's stages. The final story is so engrossing.

Ah, this series went out with quite a bang! I liked the first book. I really liked the second book. This, the final book? Best one yet. It was fast paced and full of action. The characters really had grown so much as they learned more about the story behind them, the stories that they had been denied for so long.

This is another review that I will be keeping short, because not only d

So the story that I fell in love with in Alive is over... I don't even know what to say. Scott Sigler's writing is incredible. All the characters feel genuine and the situations he puts them in is dangerous and exciting. Alone has the most death and violence than the other two books which really takes its toll. I felt each death almost like a personal loss and it left the characters broken towards the end. I think this was a great conclusion to the trilogy. Now, you might be wondering, "if you l ...more

Originally reviewed for YA Books Central:

2.5 Stars

This third and final book in Scott Sigler’s The Generations Trilogy picks up roughly a year after the second book left off, with Em Savage still the leader of the original “Birthday Children” who fled to the planet they were engineered for—with the “Grownups” who intended to overwrite their minds largely defeated, but still in orbit. The alliance they made with the alien species already on the planet is ho

This book is a fitting ending in this trilogy. If you have not read the first book than you need to go do so right away. Not only because these books are meant to be read in chronological order but because if you like dystopian novels with strong characters than you need to check this trilogy out.

Em and the rest of the group might be fighting their biggest battle yet. Their friendships will be tested. Additionally, death will come to some. The planet of Omeyocan is another element of what I lik

Very satisfying conclusion.

Soon after starting, I thought that it would be impossible to wrap up the trilogy within this last book. I was pleasantly surprised. I also have different mental images of how the series will fit into the Siglerverse.

Another must read for Junkies, and a great series for folks new to Scott Siglers work.

An immensely satisfying conclusion to this wonderful trilogy!! I’m sad that it’s over, but I absolutely loved dwelling in this world while it lasted.

I highly recommend this imaginative and thrilling series!

I just got approved for this ARC and I'm SO HAPPY!! I can't wait to see how this ends!

RATING: 3.85 YA stars, or 2.8 Adult stars.

REVIEW: A pretty good finale. Action, explosions, deaths, changes. Not great literature; YA readers won't care.

After three books full of plot twists, mysteries and action, the series The Generations by Scott Sigler has sadly ended. I’d like to thank once again the French publisher Lumen for giving me access to the whole trilogy as review copies. You might know how the story starts: a young girl wakes up in a coffin in what seems to be underground and her only memory is the fact that it is her birthday. She can’t even remember her name. If the beginning reminds you of the Maze Runner by James Dashner, don ...more

The writing is still flawless. I liked the idea of why all these races come.I think it wasn't easy choice.At some points, I hoped to meet this people.I don't think this bravery exsits.I loved O'mally so much even as a memorial in that part. Em was really a strong character that was written perfectly.I hate Mattie but not her tactics.
I like vic on the other hand.Matilda had all the handsome guys.

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Wow. What an incredible end to an incredible series. So there are times when I am reading a book series and I never really feel like the sequels live up to the first one. For so many series, the books just kind of lose steam as they go on. BUT NOT WITH THIS ONE. This book is just as exciting as the first two . . . even more so, actually. This book was almost 600 pages and I swear there was action and bloodshed and intensity for

A thoroughly satisfying ending to the Generations Trilogy. It put me through the emotional wringer, especially those last few chapters. Without giving anything away - no spoilers! - I was concerned for our heroine's well-being. Luckily, Sigler delivered a means of providing her with an emotionally and mentally fulfilling future. In my world, that's a Happily Ever After worth celebrating.

I also saw the potential for another trilogy should the author and publisher so desire. I'm not sure how well

The conclusion of Scott Sigler's Generations trilogy sees the story take a turn in another new direction.

Sad to only rate this as 3 stars.

The big concepts are interesting and it's nice to get tie-ins to the larger Siglerverse that we know and love from his other novels, but I didn't love parts of the execution. At about two thirds of the way through I started to skim over some passages, which is not a particularly encouraging sign. I wanted to know the outcome of a skirmish, for example, but was

I loved the first book in this series, Alive, but found that I progressively grew less interested as the series continued. I found this third installment frustrating because of all of the inane questioning and inner dialog that the main character had in the book. The book would have been far improved by editing out all of that dribble. I also found it rather off-putting that they (view spoiler) ...more

ARC review. I received the book at Siglerfest in Las Vegas.

This third installment was, in my opinion, the best of the trilogy. It really came together and showed that Mr Sigler had a plan for the story and the characters. I highly recommend seeing how this story plays out. You will not have predicted it.

OMG!! I cried, I gasped, I screamed, and...ugh...this book tore my soul apart! While I am sad it’s over, Scott Sigler is probably one of my top five favorite authors. Not only have I invested my time, energy, and emotions into this series but the teens I have recommended this book to have as well. I am so stoked to chat with them tomorrow about this installment as there is SOOOO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT!!

Em is a very complex character who faces challenges I pray no one ever has to face. The Lord of the Flies takes a back seat to this trilogy when it comes to relatability of young girls facing unbelievably difficult challenges of the heart and body. Being in a strange place is something we all know about. But to be in that strange place and being a leader in it, like it or not, is rarely our challenge. Read this book and the two before to see if you would be any different.
