Ember Miller and Chase Jennings are ready to stop running. After weeks spent in hiding as two of the Bureau of Reformation’s most wanted criminals, they have finally arrived at the safe house, where they hope to live a safe and quiet existence.

And all that’s left is smoking ruins.

Devastated by the demolition of their last hope, Ember and Chase follow the only thing left to them—tracks leading away from the wreckage. The only sign that there may have been survivors.

With their high profile, they know they can’t stay out in the open for long. They take shelter in the wilderness and amidst the ruins of abandoned cities as they follow the tracks down the coast, eventually finding refugees from the destroyed safe house. Among them is someone from Chase’s past—someone he never thought he’d see again.

Banding together, they search for a place to hide, aiming for a settlement a few of them have heard about…a settlement that is rumored to house the nebulous organization known as Three. The very group that has provided Ember with a tiny ray of hope ever since she was first forced on the run.

Three is responsible for the huge network of underground safe houses and resistance groups across the country. And they may offer Ember her only chance at telling the world her story.

At fighting back.

The Article 5 Trilogy is probably one of my favorite dystopian trilogies. I really think this book was a great wrap-up to the trilogy and it did not disappoint. As I have said in the other two reviews, HERE and HERE, I loved the interactions between Chase and Ember. There are parts of all three books that I have gone back and reread. That only happens when I can’t stop thinking about it.

Three starts off shortly after Breaking Point left off. Chase, Ember, and the rest of their small group are trying to find a safe house on the coast. As they search for their new safe house they are numerous signs from the notorious Three. They are searching for Three because they think this person will be able to help. They are shocked by what they find out though.

Chase and Ember are faced with a new acquaintance they never thought they would see again, along with many other things throughout the book. This book is really packed with action, which I loved. There are also some rather intense scenes between Chase and Ember, which I also loved. The Barn scene! Don’t worry I won’t spoil anything. Rebecca and Sean have such a cute relationship too. The secondary characters are written so well and complex, not just black and white.

The writing, the characters, the plot, everything about this book/trilogy was just really good. This review is going to be rather short because it would be way too easy to spoil things. I highly recommend this trilogy if you haven’t read it yet and if you have started it then definitely continue it! I will be recommending this trilogy to my friends and anybody else looking for a good high action dystopian. I will definitely be picking up everything that Kristen Simmons writes.
