Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff REVIEW

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza--but who knows what they'll find seven months after the invasion?

Meanwhile, Kady's cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza's ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys--an old flame from Asha's past--reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict. With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heros will fall, and hearts will be broken.

From bestselling author duo Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff comes the exciting finale in the trilogy that broke the mold and has been called "stylistically mesmerizing" and "out-of-this-world-awesome."

Absolutely brilliant is what this series is. I loved it. It's easily one of the best series I've read ever.

In Obsidio we get to tag along our favorite ragtag team as they embark in a win all or lose all mission. The fate of thousands rest on the hands of a bunch of teens who have balls of steel. Every second counts and every decision has consequences.

This book gave me everything I was hoping for and then some. I cried, laughed and got so angry I almost tossed it across the room.

I loved how everything was wrapped up. The goodbyes, the encounters. The battles. The growth of the characters. Everything was on point.

I won't spoil it for you but I'll say this, some goodbyes were hard. Some hellos were anticlimactic but every page was magic.

The world building even on the last book was magnificent. The character development all the different interactions on point.

My fav. Character and please don't burn me on the stake for it;was Aidan. Even though everyone hated everything he did, he did it for the greater good. If it wasn't for him no one would have survived. He was the one that saved all the MCs. We wouldn't have this amazing journey if it wasn't for him.

I can see this series becoming a movie or a series and it would be awesome.
