The only way to learn about your enemy
is to die with your enemy.
But will those who are trapped survive long enough to figure it out who (or what) has brought them together?
Stolen away from a world at war, Han, Cie, and Elise must find out who is behind the labyrinth if they’ll have any chance of getting home.
"There is so much about this book I love. I enjoyed watching the characters change as they progress through the maze, how they carry on with their own lives and how the experience changes them. " -- Ashley Levy, reader
Trapped in a world that makes no sense...
Seven people, stolen from a Civil War, dropped into a sterile, featureless maze must learn to trust each other, fight off packs of bizarre monsters, if they're going to survive. But when the labyrinth resets itself again and again, they realize someone is watching them. Someone with an agenda. Is this some trap from the oppressive ruling Sayal regime, or is it a weapon of the freedom fighters, and what does the monstrous Grey - a creature inside the maze - want with them? Hanian Tris, not even a real general, hasn't seen much battle, but he'll learn from two highly skilled women, Ciege and Elise, freedom fighters in the Resistance. Working together, they might have a chance to escape the battles that bring them to the brink of Death... and back.
About the Author:
Mel Arthur lives in Atlantic Canada and writes adjacent to three cats, a husband, and a small boy. She studied both English Literature and Library Science, paints and draws with middling ability, and mostly reads books about long dead kings and queens.
Mel has been telling herself stories in her head since she was a little girl, but didn't get around to writing them down until recently. The Last Iteration is the first novel to make it our of her head and onto the page.
The Last Iteration is written for a more mature audience than the Maze Runner and deals heavily with the internal motivation and personalities of the characters. With such a spartan setting, the characters must do the lion's share of the work to drive the story forward and the novel is as much a study of them as it is a story about how they get out of the labyrinth.
