"The appeal of fantasy, suspense, horror, and relationships will be too strong for readers to resist, and they will be avidly awaiting the final book in this series. An impressive addition to the outstanding trilogy. This belongs on all young sci-fi thriller shelves." —School Library Journal
"With peril around every corner and plenty of raw emotion, Oppel has crafted a compelling story about what makes a person a human being." —The Horn Book Magazine

First, if you haven't read the 1st in The Overthrow series, go back and do so. This is not a series that's easy to jump into without the first book.
Hatch suffers a bit with typical second book in a trilogy issues: it dragged a bit during the first half of the book as Petra, Anaya and Seth adjusted to life in an underground bunker with the other hybrids. But about halfway through, the action picked up and left no room for readers to catch their breath. And then...grrr...the book ended with an intense cliffhanger. Actually, that's one reason why I rated the book 4 and not 5. Especially with a new series, where readers can't immediately pick up the next book, I think there needs to be some sense of resolution along with a push to keep people reading. While Hatch is amazing and I definitely want to know more, I didn't like the ending which felt like it cut off mid-action. Still, this is a must read for anyone who read the first book. You just may want to wait until #3 is published as well...and then plan to binge read!
This book picks up where Book 1, Bloom, ended. After celebrating the success of the herbicide, everyone watches in horror as insect eggs rain down. From there things change quickly - the quick pacing is one of the many elements that make this book so enticing. The world has learned about hybrids like Anaya, Petra, and Seth, which results in the military intervening and transporting then to a hidden bunker. There they learn more about themselves and their new abilities. But with new information comes even more questions. Will Earth be overrun? Will the hybrids lose their humanity? Can humans accept the hybrids?
Oppel’s descriptions of each new creature in this world are both haunting and mesmerizing. The alternating POVs work so well, especially as the characters and plot lines became more complex. Oppel naturally wove the POVs together and ended each on a cliffhanger, which will drive readers to quickly devour this book.
