Extinction trials: Rebel by S.M.Wilson [Book review]

Well this was a great journey to complete, this is the third in the Extinction Trials series and concludes the adventures of Storm and Lincoln on the continent of Piloria, the continent of Dinosaurs. If you have not read the first two books in the trilogy you can read my reviews here:

Extinction trials

Extinction trials: Exile


All three books are a great YA read and should keep those younger readers avidly engaged throughout.


Extinction trials: Rebel by S.M. Wilson Book cover

Blurb

Betrayal. Sacrifice. Survival. Welcome to The Extinction Trials


Storm and Lincoln's city is burning. The people are starving. The only place left to run is Piloria, the continent of monsters. It's up to Storm and Lincoln to keep their people alive as they colonize this lethal paradise. But will the biggest threat to their survival be the monsters in the jungle...or the ones inside the encampment with them?


The Hunger Games meets Jurassic Park in this wildly popular series filled with action, survival and betrayal.


My thoughts

This is an absolute corker of an ending to a trilogy. I think that this was the strongest of the three books, the other two building up nicely to the outcomes in this explosive final.


There was plenty of drama with the humans as well as the dinosaurs, tensions within the camp, unrest with the self imposed 'leaders' , fear of the unknown and the dinosaurs they were surrounded by. Without giving away any spoilers it was wrapped up perfectly in a way you expected and was necessary.


Storm, Lincoln and Reban were a force to be reckoned with and there were plenty of dramatic dinosaur scenes to keep us entertained. I loved the exploration of Storms relationships with both Reban and Octavius who we met in the second book, Exile.


I love the addition of the maps at the beginning of each book. They show you a little more of the explored continent every time giving us a glimpse of what there is to come in the book. I also found myself referring back to it at different parts of the book to remind myself of the layout of the continent.


Overall this was a great finish to what is a very solid YA trilogy. I will keeping hold of these books until my little one is old enough to read them!


Have you read this series? Have my reviews spurred you to try them out?
