Blurb: The final installment of the Refuge Inc. series. –

Phoenix—a dark, vast ruin, speckled with sporadic rays of light pushing its way through the dark, dense clouds. Adam and Elliot wander the collapsed city for days before taking shelter at the nearly standing Arrowhead hospital. Their days are filled with hopes of rescue and a deep need for emotional and mental closeness, until the harsh reality take over their thoughts—their food and supplies are dwindling, and they are in desperate need of assistance and reprieve.

They’re forced to return to the devastation they narrowly escaped … the hellish compound, also known as Refuge Inc.
This time, armed with a handgun containing four bullets and a dangerous plan, they make their way across the devastated city and back to the compound. Adam’s determined to do whatever he must to survive, even allowing grief-stricken Elliot to take the lead and make some of the most life-changing decisions they would ever have to make.

Can they win their final fight for survival?

Review: This is the third book in this series and the blurb says the last instalment. It is best understood if you read them all in order. I have to say I am disappointed it’s over. However, at the end of the book, I do see there is more from this author and related stories. though I will dearly miss Adam and Elliott.

Back to the story. Adam and Elliot have escaped Refuge Inc.  They went back to the hospital, but it’s too late there and now food is running out.  A group of other survivors run up on them, to rob them for food and medicine.

I really I enjoyed how this story was a bit different from the last two. I was glad that Adam finally embraces his feelings. The emotions and physical connection between Elliot and Adam was beautiful and made me very happy! The twists just kept on coming and kept me on edge. I do have to say, however, I was reading along excited and bam it ended. I would have liked a bit more closure than I got, but overall it was a fantastic book. Moreover, I was glad to see that Leslie has more coming. I can’t wait to see what happened a century later!

I recommend this if you like post-apocalyptic, Dystopian, tales of survival, and some hot sensual man-sex.
