SciFi Book Review: Ruins

Ruins by Dan Wells

There is no avoiding it—the war to decide the fate of both humans and Partials is at hand. Both sides hold in their possession a weapon that could destroy the other, and Kira Walker has precious little time to prevent that from happening. She has one chance to save both species and the world with them, but it will only come at great personal cost.

As Kira tries to find a cure for the Partials’ expiration date, Samm must decide what to do with the time he has left. Meanwhile, a group of humans has a bomb they intend to use to wipe out the majority of the Partials. And if relations between humans and Partials weren’t bad enough, a mysterious killer is collecting DNA for a nefarious purpose that would affect everyone.

Ruins is the 3rd and final installment in the Partials Sequence. This dark and exciting story continues with plenty of suspense, intrigue, drama, and a bit of romance. It’s unpredictable, inventive, and engaging. The intensity builds to a stirring, climactic finale that left me satisfied and pleasantly surprised. Wells isn’t afraid to address difficult and thought-provoking issues that will give readers plenty to ponder. I highly recommend this trilogy to fans of science fiction and dystopias.
