Our gang of heroes, Andrew, the retired Marine, Kendra, the FBI Agent, Roland, the genius hacker, Tony, Roland’s side-kick and teen marvel, Valeria, Andrew’s Daughter, who is also a genius and has multiple talents picked up from her Marine Father, and then there are the extra’s, Kerry, Kendra’s Sister, and Eric Keller, who used to be Hound’s right hand man, but in part 2, and in this book, has realised how wrong Hound is, and has switched sides.
At the beginning of this story, things look grim, as the “Saints of Mary”, as Shelley Morris’s group has taken to calling themselves, has seized control, is living it up, forcing all the ‘Non-Believers’ to do the hard work, with a diet of oatmeal.
If you step out of line, you get shot.
This is a story that is told from the point of view of many different characters, giving it a fast, broad spectrum storyline, allowing it to not only shift focus between different aspects of the storyline and different locations, but also looking at different psychological aspects of the story as well. Andrew Millers character has a lot tougher approach to things than does his Daughter, especially when it comes to Tony.
This differing contrast of views makes for a really fascinating view of events as they unfold around the camp, especially at times when you read similar events from the points of view of two different characters, and the impact it has on them. The character work is incredibly gritty, realistic and at times, very powerful, as our main characters are thrust from one challenge to the next in their seemingly endless battle to free themselves from not just the dictatorship of the ‘Saints of Mary’, but the tyrannical hold of Lewis Hound.
I don’t want to give away spoilers, so I am not going to go into what happens to a great extent, but as discussed in book 2, our heroes have discovered other species on this planet, and in this book, we find out a lot more about these races, who they are, why they are there, and there is a lot more interaction with them.
Book 3 is a full-on action packed thriller, from the very first page, to the very end, it is incredible just how much Scott and Hystad have managed to pack into this book. One of the really brilliant things about this book is that most of the questions you have about the story get answered to (well at least the big ones), leaving you satisfied with the ending, and not wondering about a whole bunch of lose story ends that never got wrapped up (I hate it when Authors do that!!)
As well as the exceptional character work (which is the true highlight of this book), one of the other really extraordinary parts of this book was the world building, from multiple aspects. The actual ‘world building’ itself was very clever, with the descriptions of the new planet and its environment, the alien nature of the flora and fauna, but the other really creative and clever thing was the aliens. Without going into detail so as to not give away spoilers, I will say that the writing with regards to the different alien species was stunning, and added a real depth to the story.
Final Days: Escape is an amazing finish to what has been an outstanding series, Escape does not disappoint, moving along at crazy speeds at some points the action is just spectacular, and you find yourself sitting there with your mouth open in stunned awe at what is happening. There is not just action though, it is thriller, mystery, (a tiny bit of romance), but most of all, it is just all round fun – and an absolute must read!!
The characters are believable. The good guys are good, the bad guys are evil, and the rest are human; even the aliens. I am betting on Andrew and Kendra, Val and Toni, and their alien friends.

It was a bit boring and I got fed up with Morris and hound.
Normally a book will take me a day but I’ve taken over a week to get through this one. The second half was better.
