Summary

Summary

The Matrix meets Inner Space in this third book in the BZRK trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Michael Grant.

The members of BZRK are preparing for their final stand. Noah and Sadie have seen death, and it holds no fear for them. Madness does, though. And losing each other. But they will not sit back, the only witnesses to an invisible apocalypse. The world is being destroyed from the inside out. It's time for them to fight to the last, in the streets and in the nano.

The staggering conclusion to the BZRK trilogy is a story with both thrills and heart, packed with the author's trademark jaw-dropping set pieces and pace.

Booklist Review

Teens Sadie and Noah (aka BZRK agents Plath and Keats) are called back into action when seemingly unrelated nanobot attacks result in the deaths of people as diverse as police in New Zealand and Nobel Prize winners in Sweden. The two agents and their inner circle assume the threat is from old enemies, the Armstrong Fancy Gifts Company and its conjoined-twin owners. But the reality of both the plan and its perpetrator is much more aggressive and much worse than they know. Though Grant drops background info throughout, readers will be lost if they don't begin this thrill ride with BZRK (2012) and BZRK Reloaded (2013) before tackling a story this kaleidoscopic. The good news is that this concluding volume in the trilogy is both ambitious and riveting. Familiar characters return, but the deft juxtaposition of Lear and Plath as well as the men in their lives makes a strong (if gruesome) story even stronger by focusing more on psychological rather than physical damage. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With the Gone series concluded, Grant's fans should continue to drift toward this new flagship, and plenty of advertising and retail support intend to make it so.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-In an impeccable reading by Nico Evers-Swindell, the members of BZRK are back together to solve the mystery of nanobot attacks on seemingly unrelated groups, from Hollywood celebrities to Nobel Prize winners. Are the attacks coming from their nemesis, the conjoined-twin owners of the Armstrong Fancy Gifts Company, or are the attacks coming from somewhere even more sinister? Evers-Swindell keeps listeners on the edges of their seats as the truly scary and sometimes bloody final book of this trilogy comes to a conclusion. Each character is unique and realistic; for example, after Bugman's unfortunate encounter with a dish of glass fruit, his voice screams out with the sound of swelling lips and broken teeth. This is not a story to listen to without knowledge of the previous two books in the trilogy. There is a fairly graphic sex scene at the beginning of the story and violence throughout. VERDICT There are too many characters and too much backstory to allow this audiobook to stand on its own. But for those who enjoyed the first two volumes, this provides a satisfying ending. -Ann Brownson, Eastern Illinois University, Charleston (c) Copyright 2015.
