From the Author
This book is part of the Beyond series, stories set in a post-apocalyptic world where the rich and powerful have claimed ownership of the country's only self-sustaining city. Those who live within Eden's walls must abide by a strict moral code or risk exile to the brutal, lawless sectors.
Gangs and petty dictators rule the slums, but not all kings are created equal. Dallas O'Kane and his brotherhood of bootleggers are the only authority in Sector Four. Cross them at your peril. But pledge your loyalty, and you might be invited into their world of passion and power, sex and sin. Just remember: if you're an O'Kane, you're an O'Kane for life.

This book was also most memorable for the final battles of the Revolution that has been building since the series began, but I liked Nessa and Ryder's relationship more than I've enjoyed those featured in the last several books and novellas. Perhaps because of the upheaval of the Revolution, Nessa and Ryder's relationship is more emotional and romantic than others in the *Beyond* universe. They've also dialed back the kink, which I was glad about, not because there's anything wrong with BDSM, but because in a culture that values diversity as much as the people of Sector Four, it strains credulity that *everyone* would be turned on by the same things.
Telling the meat-and-guts story of the war alongside Nessa's romance was an inspired choice. Throughout the series she's been on the sidelines, vital to the O'Kane's survival as she produces the liquor that keeps their money coming in--but she's nearly useless at the skills of war, and her helplessness really sells just how bad things have gotten.
And Ryder? Hot damn, do I love a man that can laugh with his lover. Him teasing Nessa was almost too adorable to take. Personality-wise, they were a great match.
Taking a short break from their POV chapters during the final confrontation itself was also a good choice, letting the reader see the battle from multiple perspectives familiar from the earlier books, letting us see how those characters had changed and how they felt about what they were fighting for.
The only disappointment to me--and it's minor, not even dinging the review score a star--is that I went into this knowing that characters would die, but the important ones would be safe. Several "starring" characters--ie, ones that had their own romances--were injured, but the deaths were restricted to side characters. I mean, I get it. I would have thrown my Kindle across the room if Cruz had been killed...but that doesn't mean knowing we wouldn't lose anyone major did take some of the suspense away.
I read this last book in the Beyond series with a bit of sadness, and wishing good endings for all the characters I’ve read about with affection. Unfortunately, not everyone gets their HEA, and we feel the pain of the O’Kane family as they learn to live with that reality.
Above all, The Beyond Series is just a great story/saga! That’s what kept me coming back, hungry for more about the characters with each new book and novella. With all the darkness of the story's dystopian world, and all varieties of kink the characters use to express their freedoms, these are people who care about each other and sacrifice all that they have to keep their freedoms.
This last book shows us how the tensions with Eden are resolved. As you would expect from the other books in the series, the resolution is not neat and clean, but it does set the stage for new beginnings. We’re also treated to Ryder and Neesa’s story. Neesa has been a bit of a mystery up to now, and reading about how she came to Sector 4 helped to explain why the O’Kane’s have been so protective of her.
I’ve been hooked since the first book, because the story is that good. I’m looking forward to rereading the entire series again, from beginning to end. It Rocha makes that easier now by providing the entire series in a discounted set that I highly recommend. Before The End (Beyond Series Ultimate Glom Edition)
I look forward to reading the related Gideon series, happy to know that the great stories will continue!
Nessa has a complicated past but she also has been with the O'Kanes since before the very first book. We have known who Nessa was from the very beginning. Nessa and her magical whiskey. I liked finding out her story and why she does the whiskey and why she is who she is. Ryder's story was a bit more complicated but even his perfectly explained who he was. Put them together, they're so polar opposite in many ways, Nessa is a dreamer, Ryder doesn't know how to dream, but they're so similar in many other ways. The heat between the two of them could be felt with every scene they had together.
Word of advice, don't start with this book if you haven't read the rest of the series or you will not understand the O'Kane way of life or even who Nessa is. Plus the war will not make much sense without the backstory.
My only complain about the series wrapping up (minor spoiler here) is the whole everyone we got a love story for is fine, maybe a little rough around the edges after the war, but they all get to keep their happily ever after. That's not to say no one dies, I mean they go to war, but all the characters we know and love manage to make it out alive. It did not detract from Nessa and Ryder's love story though.
Top international reviews
Their writing is magnificent and hooks you in from the very first paragraph. It plot flows smoothly and, despite this being set in an imaginary dystopian future, is realistic, gritty and fast paced. It was good to get to know Nessa, she turned out to be quite a different person to the one I was expecting, and Ryder/Michael is a smokin' hot hero. I love how the book is written from 1st person POV, as this allows you to totally get into/understand the hero and heroine. It's also nice that 'old' characters are also given a voice so that their stories are continued.
The rest of the books got 5 stars from me - this lost half a star as it didn't tear at my emotions as much as the other books did. I think this was partly because the entire book is set in a situation of stress and worry, so there wasn't the contrast of everything being wonderful followed by huge emotional upheaval.
I'm already waiting for the spin-off series and am just off to pre-order book 1 of Gideon's Riders.
Nessa has been a brilliant character and this story gives her depth and charisma. Ryder is the perfect man for her, strong and powerful. Their path is true to their characters and sweeps you along for the ride.
This is an amazing tale of how the war is fought and the effect it has on all the O'Kanes. Characters from the previous books get there conclusions too.
A brilliant price of writing and I can't wait for the next series to start. I have already ordered the Gideon's Riders 1st book.
I highly recommend this book and all in the series.
Like others, I ugly-cried over the fate of some of the characters and burned the midnight oil as I couldn't bear to put the book down without reaching the end.
Thank you Kit Rocha for the best book hangover I've had in years...O'Kane for life!
