Reviews
Loss and sacrifice intertwine with the underlying questions of morality, family, and human strength, and the resolutions of two apocalyptically doomed romances are appropriately understated, but no less electrifying. . . . [T]his blistering finale proves the truth of the first two volumes: it was never about the aliens."--Booklist, starred review


"[The Last Star] again unspools from multiple perspectives, keeping readers as off-balance as the characters, who must adjust to a world where they can trust no one. . . . After hundreds of pages of violent, nonstop action, the ending provides both satisfaction and heartbreak."
--Publishers Weekly
