The conclusion of this trilogy is -full- of enemies, some that you can find common ground with (like in The Enemy) and some you cannot.

Ness brings his trilogy to a triumphant conclusion, with another POV voice (a Spackle, no less!) to add to those of Todd and Viola. Some profound meditations on the themes of war, terrorism, and colonialism underlying what is a helluva story that barely lets up for a moment.
YA fantasy dystopia be blowed, this has some of the best descriptions of BATTLE I've ever read. Wonderful.

Addison_Reads I just finished the first two in this series and loved them. I'm waiting on my hold to come through at the library for this one. Such a well done series so far. I'm excited to finish it. 2mo

Book 2 of the Chaos Walking trilogy and our heroes Todd and Viola are caught up in a vicious struggle for control of New World. Themes of genocide, slavery, mind control and terrorism underlie a plot which has more twists than Brexit. Ness is superb on conflicted loyalties and the ethics of violence in the service of one's cause, and once again it seems a shame that these have been categorised as YA because they really deserve a wider audience.

Where has this series been hiding my whole life!? After the first book, I didn't think the second would be as good, but it is! 💚

Yes, this book is full of action from the start, but at its core, Ness shows us humanity and how resilient humans can be when facing what seems like impossible odds.

I'm excited to see how this series ends. 📚💙💛

So far so good. I still think the first book will have been the best and most gripping but I suspect this will be 2nd best.

Follows on very well from part 1. I found the end of book 1 frustratingly unsatisfying but this time was more keenly aware that this would not be a satisfying resolution and instead would end on basically an intro to book 3. That said, I enjoyed it thoroughly and couldn't put it down at several points.
