Claire C Riley has certainly upped the ante in Odium 3. Friends, if you are into the apocalypse, then I suggest you catch on to this series in a hurry.In this life, nothing is simple…not even DEATH
In the third instalment of the Odium series, having distanced herself from Mikey, Nina is on a mission. She’s seeking a woman who could be the answer to all their problems…or just another nightmare made reality.
Travelling alongside Nova, the two women are faced with countless threats and inexplicable circumstances…just another day in the land of the dead.
But Nina is changing, feeling the strain of this life, and beginning to rethink the choices she’s made and the woman she’s become. New allies will be forged on this road of self-discovery, bonds will be broken, and old enemies will resurface. Nina will be forced to make a decision that could have devastating consequences.
However life is nothing without someone to love, or a family to love you in return. And in this new world, there is only one way to prove that love is still possible. Sacrifice.
I'll skip a lot of the preliminary stuff, and assume you've read some of this series. We know Nina is a former resident of a walled in city, she's connected and fallen for a man named Mikey. They travel with some friends, and they are on the run from the Forgotten, which is a group of blood-thirsty criminals. The group feels like they may have found a home base with a new group of people, but as we know all too well - things are not always as they appear. At the end of Odium 2 Nina and Nova have taken off in search of a couple from Nova's old camp because they are expecting a child.
Claire C Riley really made me laugh throughout this book several times by the way of a character named Joan, a.k.a. Crazy Pants. Oh my goodness, this woman is hilarious. She's a bit off her rocker, but she finds companionship with Nova and Nina, and is on the trip with them. When things get too tense, you can count on Crazy Pants to come through with some comic relief.
Odium 3 does not lack on the gore - or the surprises. Riley has definitely brought new situations to the apocalypse, and kept it fresh, dangerous, and exciting. I loved this book from the first to the last page! This is one of those series that I find myself anxious for each new book, her writing is that good. So yeah, if you haven't tried out Riley's version of the apocalypse, it's time you should.
