Happy Tuesday, everyone! You know what Tuesdays mean: a new episode of LOST, and glorious book releases. Along with Michael Grant’s Lies and Jeri Smith-Ready’s Shade, also hitting stores today in the United Kingdom is the third and final book in Patrick Ness’s excellent dystopian YA Chaos Walking trilogy, Monsters of Men.
Here’s a little bit about the book:
In the riveting conclusion to the acclaimed dystopian series, a boy and girl caught in the chaos of war face devastating choices that will decide the fate of a world.
As a world-ending war surges around them, Todd and Viola face monstrous decisions. The indigenous Spackle, thinking and acting as one, have mobilized to avenge their murdered people. Ruthless human leaders prepare to defend their factions at all costs, even as a convoy of new settlers approaches. And as the ceaseless Noise lays all thoughts bare, the projected will of the few threatens to overwhelm the desperate desire of the many. The consequences of each action, each word, are unspeakably vast: To follow a tyrant or a terrorist? To save the life of the one you love most, or thousands of strangers? To believe in redemption, or assume it is lost? Becoming adults amid the turmoil, Todd and Viola question all they have known, racing through horror and outrage toward a shocking finale.
And check out the awesome, brand new book trailer for the novel:
The Chaos Walking books are among some of Thea’s personal favorites (you can read her reviews of The Knife of Never Letting Go here and The Ask and the Answer here). We highly recommend you go forth and check out the series.
