The final installment of Dan Wells’ Partials Sequence really knocks it out of the park. Throughout the entire series, he has upped the tempo, the sense of chaos, and the desperation of Kira to find answers. All the while he layered in solid science, a love story that didn’t make me roll my eyes at the stupidity and side characters that rise above well worn tropes. My only quibble is now knowing what happens next.
