Here's an old game: each person says three facts about themselves, but only two of them are true. If you can guess which one is the lie, you win. Simple, right? You'd be surprised. Try this: Dan Wells: 1. I speak three languages. 2. I've spun the big wheel on The Price is Right. 3. I've ridden hobo-style on the Mexican Railroad. That's a bit of a trick question: I speak English and Spanish, but even though I live in Germany I don't actually speak German. Sneaky, right? Ready for more? Here are two truths and a lie from all the major characters of the Partials Sequence; guess right, and you'll get some hints about the third book, RUINS. Guess wrong, and. ..well, you might be in for some big surprises.
Kira Walker: 1. My father wants me dead. 2. I never make it back home again. 3. I once met a talking dog.
Marcus Valencio: 1. I almost get eaten. 2. I defuse a nuclear bomb. 3. I have never seen snow.
Samm: 1. I was named after Sam Malone from Cheers. 2. I kiss Heron in the third book. 3. I die in the third book.
Heron: 1. I'm the one who kills Samm. 2. I also kill Marcus. 3. Maybe I'm playing two lies and a truth, you can't tell me what to do.
Nandita Merchant: 1. I'm a member of the Trust. 2. The Trust destroyed the world on purpose. 3. Someone in the Trust wants to destroy the world again.
Isolde Romer: 1. My baby is a weapon. 2. My baby is dying. 3. Nandita cures my baby.
Ariel McAdams: 1. I'm a living bomb. 2. I hate the Partials. 3. I kill Nandita.
Xochi Kessler: 1. I hate my mother. .. 2. ...but I save her life anyway. 3. (She doesn't save mine. )
Yoon Ji-Bak: 1. I have a pet panther 2. I help cure RM. 3. I help kill hundreds of thousands of people.
RUINS: 1. This is the final book in the Partials Sequence. 2. This book has a giant purple monster in it. 3. This book has a happy ending.
The narrator does an excellent job with all the different character voices and conveys emotion well.
This book, and its ending, are satisfying, but as with any good series, there are still some unanswered questions, and, of course, we still want more!
I feel like if the author had added an epilogue this would have helped my general feelings of dissatisfaction with the ending.
This book unlike a lot of endings to series did not disappoint. Loved it and the ending it had for some of my favorite characters in a novel!Published 6 days ago by Jlk785
I loved this series so much. A strong independent female lead. I would totally buy this book for a young girl but as an adult I enjoyed this book as well. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Alexis Appel
It took me a while to get into this book. A lot of that is due, I think, to the long stretch of time between my reading of the previous book and this one; I had to bring myself... Read morePublished 28 days ago by Bookphile
I liked this series better than The Hunger Games and Divergent series. It seems to be geared more towards adult readers than the other two. Read morePublished 29 days ago by D. Kovacs
"Ruins", as an end to a three part series was a good book. It wrapped things up nicely. There tended to be too many different story lines, however, making it difficult to... Read morePublished 29 days ago by Barry
An easy read that was exciting and had an ending that was expected but satisfying. I would recommend this bookPublished 1 month ago by Desirae Gomez
I really enjoyed Ruins, but not as a finale. It just kind of ends without a full resolution. It's not the kind of open ending where you can easily imagine what may come next for... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Angie
