Betrayal. Sacrifice. Survival. Welcome to The Extinction Trials
Storm and Lincoln’s city is burning. The people are starving. The only place left to run is Piloria, the continent of monsters. It’s up to Storm and Lincoln to keep their people alive as they colonize this lethal paradise. But will the biggest threat to their survival be the monsters in the jungle…or the ones inside the encampment with them?
The Hunger Games meets Jurassic Park in this wildly popular series filled with action, survival and betrayal.
I finished another series! Which feels like a big accomplishment since it takes me forever to swing around and finished and already completed series, so yay!
Anyways, I really enjoyed this last book. It was filled with plenty of being chased by dinosaur action and more political intrigue as Stormchaser and Lincoln had even more to contend with.
I wish that there was something more added to this. It did begin to feel repetitive over the course of the entire series because it had the same model, run from dinosaurs — survive — move on…repeat. When that was taken out there was a bit more substance over how to settle in a new and foreign area.
The relationship between Reban and Stormchaser was one of my favorites. I love the quiet and fierce side of Reban who watched Storm at all costs and that there was some movement in their overall reconciliation. Lincoln and Storm were super cute too and I would have loved even more romance from them!! Give me all the character story.
As the ending rolled in, I felt that what needed to happen did. I wasn’t shocked by anything (because someone had to die and I figured that out early on), and the world had to keep turning. It ended at an acceptable place to give hope to the new future that awaits them among the dinosaurs.
