Six years ago, with the financial collapse of her country and the death of her parents, Carrie Ashworth swore to protect her siblings. She has fought to build a life for them in her illegal clan. Now home and recovering from a government-spread virus, she’s ready to pursue a little happiness of her own. With Greg.
Greg Pierce has no plan to join the growing rebellion or their “Live free or die” mentality. Even after compulsory military service deepened his hatred of President Rigsby’s regime, he wants nothing more than to leave it all behind and start a quiet life with Carrie in Logan Pond. But when word reaches them that Oliver, their patrolman friend and protector, is missing, Carrie and Greg are thrown into a race for survival. Chief Jamansky has discovered Oliver’s little secret and now he wants revenge, forcing their clan to consider abandoning Logan Pond forever.
In this battle for siblings and friends, for homes lost and freedoms stolen, the citizens must ask: How far would you go to pursue happiness?
The stakes are pushed to their boundaries in this highly-anticipated final book in Rebecca Belliston’s Citizens of Logan Pond trilogy, bringing her epic love story to an unforgettable end.
This is the third book in the Citizens of Logan Pond series and definitely my favorite of them all. Each book got progressively better and I'm glad I stuck with this series after the first book (which wasn't my favorite).
In my review of the first book I mention that I don't like Greg at all. I'm not sure I came out of this series loving him, but he definitely mellowed and became less abrasive in books two and three. He has many redemptive qualities that came out more in the second and third books. Thank goodness.
The pacing in this book is fast and constant. The characters are all fighting for their lives and for the people that they love. It was easy to get caught up in their plight for freedom. This book is the climax of the series and it's full on. The first two books have really built up to this final book and it doesn't disappoint.
Luckily anyone starting this series now, like me, can read the books one right after the other without waiting. The benefit of coming into a series late, I guess. 😃
