I wasn't looking forward to reading this conclusion to the series before I opened up the first page and saw an interesting little note from the publisher. It summed up for me what this series has been trying to say all along in a few succinct sentences:

"Actually, it's not about dying; it's about how to live with the knowledge. That's the secret - and it takes a rather terrifying last twist in this final book. Don't close your eyes."

Sounds pretty cool, right?

We all have a number. That number is what Adam sees whenever he looks someone in the eye. It is the person’s date of death. Along with this unwanted information, Adam receives a strong feeling, a sense, of how each person will meet his demise. Will it be drawn out and painful? Calm and peaceful? Agonizing and humiliating? Everyone in futuristic England (after the world as we know it has ended) knows this about Adam. They recognize him on sight. Many want to thank him, some want to be privy to hi ...more

First of all, there were only 247 pages. Anyway, this book was great and I loved it. The writing, characters, setting and emotions were portrayed strongly throughout the entire series. The ending was happy and satisfying, which I definitely wasn't expecting. I had prepared myself the whole book that one of my favourite characters was going to die at the end, but thankfully I was wrong. I wish there was more to read. It feels like I'm losing my family because I've become attatched to Adam, Sarah, ...more

Probably a little better than dreadful, but not by much. Adam, Sarah and Mia are hiding from the government since he is supposedly a murderer. But, he has a chip so how hard can he be to find? It also seemed like Adam got stupid, even before (view spoiler). His use of language definitely regressed from the articulate savior in Book #1. Sarah also seemed insipid, pining for Adam: not at all the self-starter from the first two books. The villain was not well ...more

Infinity (or Numbers Book 3: Infinity) the third and final book in the Numbers trilogy by Rachel Ward picks up two years after the second book, Chaos. Adam, Sarah, little Mia and Sarah's two little brothers. Struggling to survive in a world that's now nearly without government, medicine, shelter or anything they were used to just two years ago in 2027 England.

Adam can still see everyone's numbers, see the day they're going to die just by looking into their eyes.

No one's number's ever changed . .

After reading a few reviews on the thrid and final book in this triliogy I really didn't want to read it. Why? Because I liked the first two books so much that I didn't want to spoil my opinion on them. But after seeing that Infinty was only 256 pages on my kindle I decided to read it anyway.

So, the story begins two years after the ending of The Chaos. Adam, a pregnant Sarah, her two brothers and Mia are all living together in the wildnerness travelling from place to place, keeping away from the

Not a horrible ending to a trilogy which began with such promise, but definitely the weakest of the three. The first half is a lot of meandering and false starts and waiting for something to happen. The villains are cut-out caricatures. However, I thought the ending quite strong and very exciting (bumping it to 3 stars). It is dark and violent, emotional and nail-biting. (view spoiler)

Since The Chaos, Sarah, Adam, Mia and Sarah’s brothers have been traveling from place to place trying to avoid people who might want to take advantage of Adam’s ability to see the death date of anyone he looks at. Because Adam and Mia are both tagged with tracking chips, they are in real danger of being found. Though they are thankful that Mia is still alive, they still can’t figure out how she ended up with Nan’s number and survived the fire at Sarah’s parents’ house (at the conclusion

This was a little disappointing.

I'm not going to bother reviewing this one on the blog because it's the last book in a series and I didn't review the first two novels because I read them such a LOOOONNGGGG time ago!

Numbers Infinity started off well, it was fast paced, intriguing and so much fun to return to a world I loved in my teens. While I ultimately enjoyed it, the story started to drag at the midway point and became quite repetitive as if the author was trying to find ways to draw it out l

Like the first book in the trilogy, this one wasn’t quite a four star book yet it was so close I decided it was deserving of being rounded up. It was so close that it did not make a difference if I bumped it up that tiny amount.

With this book we’re back to the slower pace of the first book. In fact, it is the mirror of the first book. The first book introduced everything to us and this final book brought everything together. There isn’t quite as much action as there was in the second book, but t

I found the characters frustrating. I find that with teen fiction the authors don't like the kids to do anything that's "really not nice" like killing someone, even if they are threatening you, or your loved ones and they know the threatener doesn't bluff. At which point, whatever solution the author comes up with for this problem ends up being kind of lame, and doesn't work. So the best solution would be, don't put your characters in these types of positions. Gone, Hunger and Lies by Micheal Gr ...more

Well. It was okay I guess - written with the same realism as the other Numbers books. I just felt that this had strayed so far from the first Numbers book, you know? Like, secret(ish) underground bunkers (just down the road from where I live, how cool is that?!), evil dudes out to take your powers... Kinda 'strayed' off in that sense. But, by all means, Numbers fans - this is a must read for you. ;) And if you're dying with curiousity as to what would happen after Numbers 2, haha.

This is the third book in a trilogy. It was very good and this is an author I will watch for.
The books follow four generation of a family with some very interesting gifts. Numbers tell death dates and Adam and his mother could both read them, and Nan and Sarah saw auras. Sometimes gifts can be curses. I highly recommend these three books.

The book Infinity was much different than the first to books. This book had much more content to grasp onto than the other books in this series. This novel contained a lot of information that all intertwined at the end. I really did love that everything came together at the end. I definitely liked this book the best out of the three because I knew so much about all the characters and I was more attached to what happened. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 because it kept me on the ed

I loved this book. In the end, there was one detail about Gemma I did not like, and was a little confused about the last two pages. Other than that I think this book was amazing, and showed the true meaning of life, and how it should be lived. There were a couple of sicking parts, only because of the intense amount of detail. I absolutely loved this book, and it was a good end to the series.
Thrilling last book of the Numbers-trilogy.

My review:
The insanely awesome people at ChickenHouse Publishing sent me this book alongside another one and while this was the 3rd in a series that I hadn’t yet read, I rushed to a friend who had copies of the first two books. The blurb was awesome that I knew I had to read this series. So armed with the other 2 books which I devoured (reviews for them coming soon) I move onto the 3rd book and here’s what I thought ;)

Just because this is annoying me. Whoever wrote the Goodreads synopsis needs to know that forever is one word not two.

As I sit here wondering how to describe the way I feel about this book, I have to warn you that this book suffers from a rare condition that seems to be getting more and more common. That's right folks, this book has what I like to call Synopsis-itis. Essentially what this means is the back of the

Book 3 of the Numbers Trilogy: We pick up where Adam left off. He now has a little family: Sarah, his girlfriend who is pregnant with his baby, Mia who is Sarah's baby sister but now calls Sarah "Mommy" & calls Adam "Daddy", and Sarah's two brothers (whose name's escape me as they don't play a huge part in the story). The story takes place two years after "the incident" that changed everything. The government is out looking for Adam and he's on the run with his little family trying to protec ...more

2.5 stars! While I overall feel satisfied with the ending, I think this book really dragged out a bit. We just got ANOTHER super dramatic storyline and I really don't think all of this was necessary, especially because in the end everything that was super dramatic still got solved in a very convenient way.
I'm glad we got the mystery of the second book solved as much as possible though. Not everything in this book can and should be explained and I think it was done well enough.

What a great ending to this wonderful trilogy. We had a bumpy start, me and it, but the second installment made up for the first installment's faults, and now the third part has, too. It's as well-written as the second installment, and although I feared it would be tedious and repetitive at the beginning, pretty soon the plot picked up and it became a real page-turner, much more action-driven than its precedents, filled with twists and surprises until its very ending.

In the book Numbers Infinity, Adam a 17 year old boy can see the death dates of everyone when he looks into their eyes. Adams girlfriend, Sarah has a daughter Mia and a baby girl on the way. My favorite part is when Saul switches numbers with Sarah. I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy and adventure.
