Just.... wow.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I love JTL's brand of sci-fi. I'm not a sci-fi fan by any means, but this dystopian series set in the not-too-distant future is just amazing. It's just out-there enough to be different but manages to be believeable; you can actually picture this stuff happening.

I don't want to spoil anything, but I definitely found parts of the novel which could have been cheesy if written by anyone else, but JTL just makes it work.

All 3 of the series a

This is the final book f the series and I can honestly say it does not let you down gently. I wasn't quite expecting such an explosive final book but I am going to miss Kate Seth and the twins, this book is set in the future but the everyday worries of Kate wanting to keep her children safe is a timeless thing and one I think everyone can relate to. The way that she does this is skilfully written that I could even imagine myself there in the future and have laughed, got angry and even cried at t ...more

Wow. What a book. Could not put it down (and believe me, I had plenty of work to do). 534 pages and I read it in just over one day. You can find out about the "When Tomorrow Calls" trilogy elsewhere. You can also check out the many five star ratings this final book in the trilogy has been given. The first book was brilliant, and the second even more so. This one manages to outshine both of them. An amazing achievement by J.T. Lawrence. Get hold of all three books, and read them.

Another thrilling and amazing instalment in this series. I don't think I took a full breath the entire time I was reading this book, and my heart was in my mouth more than once.

We are back with Kate, her kids Mally and Silver, her brother Seth and her friend Keke as well as various other friends, lovers and others who are connected with them all. This was a complicated book indeed, a dark dystopian tale which was as exciting as it was terrifying. The world that these characters inhabit, ours, i

I was so thrilled to be given the opportunity to read this amazing dystopian thriller.
"What Have We Done" is book 3 in the series and is absolute perfection of a read.
A couple of days ago I was locked into the book when the skies above me actually turned yellow - it was a very eerie experience and made the book even more poignant to me.
Characters we have grown to love are in this book too as we travel through their adventures with them.
This is the first science fiction series that I've read and

This is the third and final book in the "When Tomorrow Calls" series. If you are reading this review you have most likely read the first two books and are checking whether the last will be worth it 😊. And if you haven't started the series yet, you are probably doing what I usually do, check reviews for ALL the books, since I've been burned before - getting into a series that starts strong with a brilliant first book then fizzles out in the end leaving me feeling cheated having wasted time and mo ...more

I don’t know what to say, I'm shell shocked!
This final book in the series was action all the way. Most of the action takes place in 2036, and the twins are sixteen, well Mallie is 16 but Silver is not quite there.
Suddenly the AI robots gets infected with a virus, and they start fighting back, which is causing human deaths. We have all the same characters from the last book. Seeing the twins as teenagers and the world they live which depends entirely

Lawrence strikes again in this action pack final book in the When Tomorrow Calls series. She grabs you from the first page and drags you on a virtual rollercoaster ride until the last full stop.

We meet up with beloved characters with a couple of new characters that will draw you into this epic tale of what can happen in the future. This thrilling heart racing Dystopian-thriller makes you sit back and think and realise what Lawrence has concocted isn’t such a far-fetched idea.

Stunning is the only way I can describe the ending of JT Lawrence's final book in the When Tomorrow Calls trilogy, What Have We Done. I did not see the conclusion coming and when I got there my reaction was "Whoa" (actually it was WTF) closely followed by "OK, Lawrence set this up beautifully and I

Oh wow. After waiting so long for this book to arrive, I then polished it off in one day. Great story with absolutely no clue that was where it was going. Well written. Same amazing characters we have come to know and love. Definitely well worth a read. Loved it. Just a hint of a door left open - can we hope for another sequel?

What Have We Done is the third in this scintillating series (When Tomorrow Calls), starting with Why You Were Taken and followed by How We Found You. If you want to jump straight in to this one, you can, but I'd read them in order, if I were you.

I'm starting to think that if J.T. Lawrence wrote - oh I don't know - a story about a vampire who falls love with a girl, for instance - I'd read it, love it and not find it clichéd. And I'm jaded, cynical and very well-read 😜.

I must admit, robots rising and reading about AI are some of my favorite topics. The fact that robots rising made it into the plot of this book makes my day. This is a brilliant conclusion to the series with characters we’ve come to love. Honestly, I pretty much peed my pants during the intense scenes in this book. I love the characters so much and I want them all to survive! The ending of this book is insane. As the robot says it will “fuck your mind”. I’m very much looking forward to more spin ...more

Let me start off by saying science fiction is not a genre in my wheel house. Having said that, this series is the exception to the rule. I have throughly enjoyed every story of Kate, Zake, Keke, and Mally. I have 'watched' the twins grow from small children to teenagers. Now Zake is in big trouble. He tells Kate he is a Suicide Agent, but he can not finish telling her what she needs to know before he is taken and put in jail. Things start going haywire as far as robotic things and electronic thi ...more

I loved this book, and the series to which it belongs.
In this, the third book of the series, the characters have matured and their relationships have grown.
This makes the books wonderfully human to read which is just as well because so much of what goes on is fabulously futuristic and delightfully technologically twisted.
I started this book at the beginning of a long haul flight and did not even turn the entertainment screen on once. I read, dozed, woke, up and read again. This gripping story ke

Definitely not what I was expecting. Can't say too much about what shocked me and took me by surprise because I don't want to spoil anyone's reading experience. But, I was really taken in by this storyline though at times I felt like the characters...sick. That's all I will say about that. This is a must read book in this series.

Wow, what an ending! This is the final installment of the When Tomorrow Calls series and it did not disappoint.

We are back in the near future with Kate and Seth and the twins. For years they have led a normal life considering all the terrible stuff they had to go through in book two. Mally has a girlfriend, sort of, and Silver is stuck in immersion games. Then all of sudden, things take a turn for the worse and Kate once again has to keep her kids safe.

The series as a whole was really good. At t

The third book in the trilogy picks up the story of Kate, Mally, Silver, Seth and Keke ten years later. Kate is facing the challenges of raising Silver and Mally, now typical teenagers. The futuristic issues that Kate has to deal with may be different, but any parent of teens will still be able to relate to the timeless anxiety that comes with watching their precious baby becoming a young adult. Throw in a looming catastrophic event, a kidnapping or two, some epic rescues and an ending that catc ...more
Wow! What a mind trip! This tale opens several years after the ending of Book 2 but there’s plenty of things in this story that refer to earlier books in the series so it wouldn’t make a stand alone book. Mally and Silver are both nearly 16 and they have grown up in a very different world than their mother Kate (who is a self-imposed technosaur). For the first half of the book, we’re really just getting to know the tech of the day and catching up with the characters we’ve fallen in love with alo ...more

Review originally published at:

This is the third installment on the When Tomorrow Calls series. Zack, who had something important to tell Kate at the end of the previous book, is sent to prison, where he spends twelve years, and where this book picks up. Kate lives a normalish life along her children, who are almost grownups now. Silver is a game junkie to the point that it worries Kate, and Mally has a robot girlfriend. One day, Silver doesn't come back

"A rainbow crack version of LSD."
It had been several months and a lot of books in between since this reader finished the second of the Tomorrow Calls trilogy and it was hard, initially, to re engage with Kate, Seth and friends. But once entered into their world, it became that old-but-true cliche, unputdownable.
It is close to the eve of Silva's 16th birthday, a day predicted to be the end of days And it seems that this might possibly come true as news reports start to come

So. .. this is it ... If you have read my reviews for the prequel, Book 1 and Book 2 you will know how much I was enjoying this series .. and the finale didn't disappoint!

I have to admit to being a little lost to begin with - I think the jump in time (forward by 12 years or so) caused me a little confusion but soon adjusted and got sucked in as always. The storyline was handled so well; jumping between Kate in the 'present' back to Zack's story worked well and  there were still many mysteries be

It's my birthday today. And I am writing a review. Because I have to. I just finished What Have We Done and I am grinning. That ending. JT Lawrence, you don't mess around.

All of the books in the When Tomorrow Calls trilogy (and the tie-ins) have been a look at a potential future of the world, with an eye trained on South Africa . Lawrence is very inventive and it is clear that she is very much aware of technology, where it is and where it might be going in the future. The world in this story is

I received this series for free on Audible in exchange for an honest review. I listened to all three books. I really enjoyed the first book. It’s unique and I liked the narrator a lot. I fell in love with Seth very quickly and although Kirsten wasn’t my favorite character, I cared about what happened to her. Keke was easily one of the best characters in the series. The futuristic world of Johannesburg with all the cool tech was well developed and I wouldn’t mind visiting someday! The ending came ...more

This was my favorite book in the series. Picking up right where book two left off, we jump right into the story and follow Kate along with Keke and other beloved characters in the world of tomorrow. 12 years time passes and now Kates twins Malley and Silver are teenagers and it’s very enjoyable to see them grown up in the world Lawrence has built.

Continuing the good fight to keep her family safe, there’s a real sense danger building up as androids begin to run rampant and the Doomsday Prophecy

Fast paced, action packed, heart pounding, pulse racing, adrenaline pumping, page turning read that grabs your attention from the start. The scenes and characters were so realistic with such graphic detailed descriptions that it really brought this read to life. A hard hitting tale with twists, turns and unexpected surprises that kept me on the edge of my seat. Truly a mind blowing experience that leaves you wondering at the possibilities presented.

Holy Sh*t!  I didn't see that end coming... It hit like a Fast, heavily laden freight train! LOL
So much happens in this story, including a robot uprising, possible murders, and roving gangs of crazy, robot hunters!
This story takes us in two directions: One part is about Zack and the events that take place directly after the events in How-We-Found-You, and the other part follows Kate her family and friends, 12 years after How-We-Found-You ended... Oh yeah, and there's that doomsday prophecy...

Having read the first two books in this series, I was growing a bit irritated with the main character's internal "problems" and the somewhat predictable plotting. It's well written, and has a tense pace throughout, but I was disappointed with the ending being something of a non-ending, and almost negating the premises of the previous two books. I most liked the introduction of the "crim work colony", which had lots of innovative sci-fi ideas, and was brought to life through the enigmatic charact ...more
