This whole series has been an amped up roller coaster and this book doesn't relent. It's filled with new characters, old favorites, action, heartbreak, and one hell of an ending.

**Huge thanks and squishy hugs to Lynne for sending me a copy of the book**

Initial Impressions 4/18/16: 3.75 - 4 stars
I've been a fan of the NIL books for a long time and I loved the feel of them from the start. I think my biggest issue with the book is that I felt like there were a couple of places (including the beginning) that there was a whole lot of nothing going on. Because I read each of these books as a review copy (aka, before they were out), there was a lot of space between them and I had a hard time connecting some of the characters or events. The lulls real

SAVED (Charlie's Song) from LOST w Lyrics The Bangkok Five --Yeah, that Charlie from the TV show Lost…because I loved that show and this book brings back my memories of loving that show. Honestly, the mystery, the existential feelings it evokes, remind me so much of that show.♫

Sigh, I don't know where to beeegin. This review is so hard for me to write.
I really, really enjoyed the first and second book and I've been on this Nil journey since pretty much the beginning, so it definitely does not feel great so give this book a low rating and tell you how much this disappointed me. But that's why I wanna go into full detail. This is gonna hurt. Sorry #NILTribe!

My biggest problem was probably the main character Skye. I'm not gonna spoil the actual outcome of this but this s

Let me start off by saying this is one of the best endings to a trilogy that I have ever read in a long time. The last book in the Nil Trilogy follows the 4 main characters that we know well and love, Charley, Thad, Skye, and Rives.

As the book started off, I had low expectations due to most trilogy's ending horribly wrong. But I am pleased to say that this book was totally different. As the book started off with showing Skye and Rives life after the island and what Nil had done

Ce troisième et dernier tome est un truc de dingue! Mais vraiment! NIL est plus qu'une île, c'est une entité vivante qui se joue de tous. C'est un peu flippant et complètement tordu. Je dois avouer que je m'attendais à autre chose, mais l'histoire n'en reste pas moins prenante, stressante et géniale!
Je suis toujours autant admirative du couple Skye/Rives, de vraies ames soeurs. Ils sont magnifiques, grandioses, touchants. Quel plaisir aussi de revoir des anciens! Et d'en découvrir de nouveaux.

Lynne Matson conclut cette saga avec brio, approfondissant encore plus le côté fantastique de Nil avec sa personnalité et ses capacités. La colère de Nil nous délivre les derniers secrets de l'île et la destinée de ces derniers habitants croisés au fil des tomes. Gros coup de cœur pour cette saga !

*My Thoughts*

NIL ON FIRE is the third and final installment in author Lynne Matson's NIL trilogy. Just when Skye Bracken and Rives thought they had finally left the island of NIL behind them for good, NIL reaches out and makes their lives rather unpleasant. Skye believes that something came back with her from NIL, and that darkness is taking up every moment she should be resting. She's even seeing a girl in every nap, and every ti

And alas, the trilogy comes to an end. I'm sad. I very much enjoyed this series. The first book, Nil, was one of those books where I enjoyed it when I read it, but didn't think it was amazing. And then for several weeks, I could not stop thinking about it, and realized that it indeed was another kind of amazing, an even better amazing. My favorite part of these books has always always always been the characters. They're all so different and unique and real. And the books just got more complex an ...more

Nil is my favorite book of all time and when I learned there were more I freaked out! Nil on fire was a little slow at the beginning with a lot of mysterious events. I enjoyed getting to know each and every character including the island through Nil's point of view. Thad and Charley in Nil was and is the most epic passionate love story I've ever read. Skye and Rives story was amazing it just shows how strong you can be and how you don't always need approval as long as you have yours. The ending ...more

Currently, there are tears streaming down my face. This is the best trilogy I have ever laid my eyes on. I can't even drop a hint in this review because it will give too much away. If you haven't read this beautiful gift of a book yet (or the trilogy), what the hell are you waiting for!!!!!!

Okurken eğlendim aslında ama kitaplar beni "insanlığın geleceği için kendimi feda etmem gerekiyor, başka seçeneğim yok, benim kaderim bu" kısmında kaybediyorlar. O kısımları atlıyorum genelde.

Nil on Fire in the final book in the Nil trilogy. If you have not read the Nil series, it’s worth reading. It has a tropical island setting and has romance, action and survival. The island of Nil is only traveled to and from by gates. There are lot of deadly animals there, and some people. You only get one year to try and catch a gate, or you die. I would recommend this series to fans of shows like Lost, Naked and Afraid, Man vs Wild and other shows with survival and islands. Also fans of books ...more

I can't believe that this series is over. I've spent so much time thinking about Nil and being on Nil that I'm going to feel a lonely without it. What I just loved most about this book was all the point of views. We have been used to two point of views but this book we had just about all the major players. The best point of view ever was Nil. Oh yes you heard me Nil has a point of view in this book. I nearly passed out of joy to hear this mysterious point. I always thought Nil was a major player ...more

Un 3eme tome un peu un dessous des 2 premiers. Une fin décevante ... Quoi qu'il en soit c'est toujours avec un grand plaisir qu'on retrouve NIL, ainsi que nos héros Skye, Rives, Charley & Thad <3

After very much enjoying the first two books in the Nil trilogy by the wonderful Lynne Matson, I knew I needed to pick up this book. The last book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger in that we know that Nil is not finished, and that not that everyone escaped.

I was a bit worried because it seemed like the story was done with the last book and just kept it open for another book, so I was interested what Lynne would do with this installment.

Nil On Fire is a beautiful ending to a book series that I enjoyed greatly. What I loved most about the Nil series is that it isn't predictable in the least. With most books I try to solve the riddles and problems that the characters face. Most of the time, to my dismay, I succeed. The solutions that the characters find are so off the wall that I can't help but admire the level of thought that went into this book. Seriously, you'd have to be trying to dislike anything about these books. The chara ...more

I love books--both reading and writing them. When I'm not reading or writing, you can find me hanging out with my husband and four sons. At any given time, at least one of the 6 of us is up to no good.:)

My books: NIL, NIL UNLOCKED and NIL ON FIRE are out now; NIL REMEMBERED is a recently released free ebook prequel. Join the #NILtribe...we have cool snacks.:)
