Despite Rives and Skye's attempt to destroy Nil, the island remains. And back in this world, Nil won't let Skye go. Haunted by a darkness she can't ignore, Skye wrestles with Nil nightmares that worsen by the day and threaten to tear her apart. As Skye fights to keep her mind intact, she realizes that to finally break free of Nil, she must end Nil's vicious cycle once and for all--and she can't do it alone.
Who will return to Nil, and in the end, who will survive? In this thrilling final installment of the Nil series, the stakes have never been higher: everyone's fate hangs in the balance, including Nil's own--and Nil will fight to the death. When the full force of the island is unleashed, Skye faces an impossible choice, a cruel one she'd never imagined she'd have to make. Soon one Nil truth becomes painfully clear: only one side can win.
Losing isn't an option, but winning will cost Skye everything.
GOOD LORD. This book almost gave me a freaking heart attack, I swear. I legit thought everything was done with the people on Nil Unlocked, but noooo, Lynne Matson decided to bring them back and put them in more danger. *deep calming*
But you know what? Despite everything, this was the best conclusion ever. It was perfect, answered all the unanswered questions and it basically rounded up everything. Also, we get to know Nil. Like, yeah, we really did get to know Nil, and she actually fascinated me, as much as I wanted to despise her. Him. Yeah, whatever HAHA.
I was actually quite sad to see this series ending, because I definitely fell in love with each and every one of the characters, even the new ones in Nil on Fire. BUT I don’t really want them to go back to Nil, like NOPE. NO WAY. Y’ALL STAY ON EARTH AND STAY ALIVE. But yes, Nil on Fire was intense and kinda tragic and JUST FULL OF OMG MOMENTS.
Like, everything came back around and made sense. And I love how Skye actually grew, mentally and emotionally in this book. I was really scared that her character might be butchered into pieces (not literally, of course), but somehow, the author managed to make all the craziness flow so well in a way that made us readers love Skye even more.
Also, each character had a different part to play in this book, and there weren’t any irrelevant characters, hence I felt super connected with each and every one of them. I really love Paulo, actually. I felt like he was the most developed character in the book, in terms of how he became more mature and so unlike his old self in the previous book.
AH I AM REALLY GONNA MISS ALL THESE CHARACTERS, I SWEAR. No, I’m not crying, you are.
