A fantastic conclusion to what has been an epic series

Retribution is the final instalment of the Outliers Saga. You need to have read both Book #1 and #2 in order to fully understand and enjoy this book. Having read both Outliers and Uprising, I knew to expect a well written and engaging story. What both surprised and very much pleased me was to discover that this was written (first person) from Asa's POV as well as Indra's. It not only led to a much deeper understanding of this quite and self-c

✯✯5 Retribution Filled Stars!!!✯✯

I have been dying for this book to come!!! I’m very, very upset that this is the last book in the series. Bc, for me I was imagining it lasting forever lol. But, one thing happened that I’ve been legit BEGGING for...... Asa’s POV!!! Yes, Kate gave it to me and that’s the only reason I’m forgiving her for this being the end of the series.

We pick up where we’re left off. Asa and Nyko go into the tunnel headed in Sovereign city. They can tell instantly someth

Picking up right where book two, Uprising left off, Retribution brings us right back into the world of Indra and her people as they try to bring down the Sovereign. I ranted and raved about how much I loved Outliers and Uprising, and I’m happy to report that Retribution did everything I hoped it would and this is one of my favorite series read to date.

Kate L. Mary has consistently delivered realistic characters that have felt real and authentic across all three novels. Indra is one strong woman.

Retribution is the last book in this amazing saga. The Outliers have formed an alliance and are ready to do battle against The Sovereign and Fortis to earn their freedom. With the additional help of those poor souls trapped in "The Tower" who have been under the tyrannical thumb of the evil that lives in Sovereign city, hope blooms forth that good will win over evil in the end. We finally learn the truth behind the parentage of our heroine Indra (which made my jaw drop). AND the very end of the ...more

Retribution is the third and final book in The Outliers Series, go back and read the first two or you will be lost!
We pick up right where we left off in book 2. I really didn't know what more to expect because we have already been through so much with Indra and her people. However, putting us in Asa's head and getting to really understand his people was amazing! My emotions were all over the place and I didn't know what would happen next because it was all surprising and at times caught me off g

Ending was perfect

As an avid reader, I sometimes forget certain information and need to go back to a prior book to be able to follow thru the next book. Yet each time with the Outliers series that issue never occurred. I remember all main characters, plot and most importantly where the story left off. I was anxious for Retribution to be released, put aside the book I was reading and went back to Indra Asa and the rest of the characters surrounding them. The flow of the storyline was on point fro

A fantastic conclusion to an epic series. I have loved and hated the highs and lows of Indra’s battle for freedom. in this final instalment we get Asa’s view on the battle and I really loved the extra depth it gives the story. This last book provides insight into other characters in the book and everything rounds together smoothly whilst keeping the angst high and healthy.

The actions of one can create a ripple that can free the many. That is what Indra becomes. The beginning of something greater

What an epic conclusion to this fantastic series. Kate is an amazing writer that manages to engross her readers with such detail and heart that you can't help but feel the characters pain.

I loved how we were able to see things from Asa's perspective. The struggles of the Fortis made you more sympathetic to his cause. The book is completely action packed and picks up where the second book left off. Asa is stuck in the city and Indra is gravely injured. There were plenty of twists and turns in the

Happy or sad

Well, the story is over. I will miss Indra, Asa, and the rest. It was nice that all the loose ends were tied up. I can easily put this series to rest.

In the Uprising book #2 of The Outliers Saga; the different tribes of the Outliers came together to unite with the Fortis to rise up against the people of Sovereign City. The people of the city have treated the Outliers as slaves making them work in their homes and controlling them for generations.

The Outliers and the Fortis may have won the battle but their journey is not over yet. To gain their freedom they have to face their enemies once again. Asa has entered the city to help release their

My favorite post-apocalyptic/dystopian series of the year!

Retribution (The Outliers Saga, Book 3) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Grace Sylvan is a phenomenal final book! Highly recommend if you are looking for a new post-apocalyptic/dystopian novel, are new to Kate’s books, or looking for an incredible darker yet empowering series.

The final book in The Outliers Saga begins where previous events left off. Asa is caught trying to open the gates, Indra is recovering from an assassination attempt.

Entering the city in the hope of finding a way to open the gates, Asa and Niko wind up captured. A Fortis/Outlier army waits outside the gates for Asa to succeed. The Sovereign retaliate in a big way using their electricity technology. From this point, the main plotline is Indra and clan looking for a way to rescue Asa and destroy the technology to put an end to the Sovereign once and for all. Earlier, Indra and Asa had married; as much as a show of solidarity between the two races, as a declara ...more

Fans of The 100 and The Handmaiden's Tale should enjoy this as it encompasses themes from both. It's at times a heavy read, the abuse the Outliers suffer at the hands of the Sovereign is uncomfortable, horrifying, and absolutely believable. Those who enjoy romance as a theme in their books will like this too (it's descriptive without being eyebrow raisingly graphic but not so vague that leaves you going "wait, did they do it? what just happened?"). Strong female characters, great supportive male ...more

In the minority again. I disliked this final book. It seemed to take forever to finish and had to will myself to pick it back up. The first half was so depressing and then finally the outliers seem to be moving forward and I thought " finally, I will get interested". But no, it stilled dragged with a bunch of useless information. This book should have been edited down at least 100 pages or more.

I loved this whole series. So glad the outliers got their lives and world back. Just shows that there will always be that entitled few who think they are better than all others.
