If you want to know what I’m talking about, and more importantly the WHO (plural!!), don’t hesitate to read this book.
At the completion of this third and final book of the series, I feel satisfied with the way everything went down and how the story ended.
The final book to the Article 5 trilogy was just amazing, it was one of those series where you couldn't figure out how it could end.

I am shaking right now while writing this review! My emotions are on overdrive, and I have to do something with my hands before I hyperventilate!

This book was emotionally-packed! With this being the last book in the ARTICLE 5 series, Kristen Simmons did not hold back one bit, no she went all out! Throughout most of this book, mainly the last half or so, I was on edge, I was in horror at some of the gruesome things that were happening, but I was also in awe at some of the indescribable events that were unfolding! I loved every minute of this book, and I wouldn't change a single thing about it! This series will forever go down as one of the best dystopian series I have ever read!

Kristen Simmons knows how to stay true to the dystopian roots, and how to interweave, in the stuff we all love; action, adventure, betrayal, survival, war, love, and a fight for freedom! I am so incredibility sad to see this series end! I just picked up ARTICLE 5 last month, and when I was finished, I had, no scratch that, I NEEDED the next book BREAKING POINT! Then luckily I managed to get an ARC of THREE, and I couldn't wait any longer, I needed to know how Ember's and Chase's journey was going to end! And Kristen Simmons has given me that, tongue-twisting, tummy-tingling, hands-shacking, nail-biting, utterly-amazing ending! This series was a journey I will never forget, and these characters will live in my heart for years to come!


THREE picks up where BREAKING POINT left off! Ember and Chase has gotten Rebecca back from the rehabilitation Center, they have helped in the resistance, they have aided people in their time of need. They have done all they can, they are ready to stop running, and fighting!

THREE is the face-paced finale to the Article 5 dystopian trilogy. Picking up shortly after the heartbreaking events in Breaking Point, we find out beloved characters making the best out of a dire situation. After regrouping and following a trail they hope will lead them to something they so desperately crave – other people, food, hope – the story dives into a massive train ride of twists, turns, revelations and non-stop action until you reach the end. THREE is a great story of trusting, friendships, love, loss and determination. Simmons crafted a great conclusion to a bitter, realistic world.

We were a girl and a boy exploring a haunted house. A kiss in the woods. A ride on a motorcycle. We were walking to school. Whispering across the space between our houses. Pulling hay from each other’s hair. We were pieces of the same puzzle. (Ember page 360 paperback)

What can I say without giving away spoilers? Not very much aside from reassurance that readers will not be disappointed in THREE or how the trilogy wraps up. There is so much SWOON. So many tiny instances of love shown between Chase and Ember that my heart cracked a little each time they’d get so close to happy, to freedom, and to each other only to have those moments stolen. But in the end, it’s characters like these, a love like this, and a story like the one woven in the Article 5 trilogy that makes reading about heartache worthwhile.

Jesse’s words returned to me from Endurance: “When a government becomes destructive, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.” (Page 367 paperback)

The quality of Simmons story is impressive. I think the one thing that draws me into her world is the realism. Not to get all political in a review, but as the above quote symbolizes, people can make a change.

All good things must come to an end. It's some of the worst words any series fan could ever possibly hear. If we had it our way, series we love would never end but alas, we can't always get what we want, right? The Article 5 trilogy is no different. I fell in love with these characters, with this story and this world that Kristen Simmons has created and now, it's all over. She has taken my heart, ripped it out of my chest, stomped on it a few times and then thrown it in the ocean for good measure. While I am mostly satisfied with the ending of this trilogy there were a few things (one in particular) that I didn't agree with. However, I'm just the reader and I have no control on the outcomes or fates of certain characters.

Sean still remains the owner of this beaten and bruised heart though certainly not fully the cause of all the pain. He's not only a great friend to Chase and Ember but he is forever loyal to Rebecca, the one person who owns his entire being, body and soul. He's the type of guy I think every girl envisions for herself and those few who are lucky to find guys like him, the rest of us are super jealous.

I wasn't sure I'd ever warm up to Jesse because, let's face it, he's a very cold human being. He treated his own nephew like hell and can't even call Ember by her first name. He's got no issues with torturing and just seems to emotionless man. However, a miracle has happened because you know what? I really liked Jesse by the end - like I have mad respect for him and the journey that has been his life.

Tucker. I have no words.

Chase and Ember's relationship grows so much from Breaking Point until the end. They grow as people but the love and respect they have for each other really comes to light in this book.
