Separated from Finn, captive of the Order, Nurrin has no hope left. But she has survived twenty years of zombies--and she has the unshakable faith that Finn will find her.
But Finn is a long way away. The Order's influence runs deeper than was ever suspected, and politics are shifting--and zombies may not be the most dangerous thing she's facing.
Finn always thought the war stripped him of all he had to lose. But with Nurrin missing and doors closing in his face, he realizes there is always more for the world to take--and he will drag the remains of civilization down with him before he gives up on the only promise that matters.
This series is just awesome. A bit dystopian, a bit horror, a great twist on the zombie apocalypse. Nazarea Andrews really ups the ante with The Future Without Hope, and I loved every minute.
Nurrin has been kidnapped, and she's reunited with her brother, Collin, as we saw in book two. She remains this strong young woman, and grows even more so. I love that she doesn't quit. She is a force to be reckoned with, for sure. In this book she definitely shows that she has grown up and takes many things into her own hands.
As for Finn, I loved him before, and I still love him. Yes, he's a bit damaged, but his heart is there and it's beating for Nurrin. The thing that gets me is that he doesn't freaking open his mouth and tell her the truth!! They keep crashing into each other, and they both want each other, they both need each other...but no one is saying the words that need to be said. And when every day could be your last, those words have even more importance. But as for Finn, he is so intelligent and cunning, and I love watching how he works. When it comes to his word, and those he cares about, there is no line he won't cross.
The Order - omg, they are some crazy freaks. There are so many sects to The Order, and I don't find my way to trusting anyone who wears a robe. I don't trust the politicians, don't trust the order. Just Finn and Nurrin. But watching how The Order works is simply great, and they are a great big twist in the whole scheme of things that is very cool.
The action is really great in the book. The drama is there, fueling it forward. I love how Nurrin and Finn are together, they are really fantastic. Nazarea Andrews writing is fantastic, and I had absolutely no problem getting sucked right into this third book. The wait for book four is going to kill me though, I'm pretty sure of that!!
