In this final novel of the Safe Lands series by Jill Williamson, Mason and Omar discover the true meaning of Liberation-a secret the Safe Lands have long kept from their people-but find they are trapped in the low lands with this crucial information. Meanwhile, Levi is forced to turn his attention elsewhere when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and becomes the Safe Land’s new queen. His only choice to save her may be to take up the role of undercover vigilante that Omar began, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will that be enough to expose the Safe Land’s lies and bring freedom to the people? And will they even want it if it comes?

 I skimmed through the first two books in this series, just so I could read this one. How is it that I hardly know all the things about these characters and every key point of this world, but I liked this book? This has happened to me before, twice. I agreed to review this because I love Dystopia/Post-Apocalyptic stories. Nowhere does it say that I must read all the books in a series to enjoy it. Now, guess what I’m planning to do on my holiday break in December? Yes, read the first two books fully because I just want to know how these characters started out and the things they went through. Still, this review will be already posted so my thoughts on the previous ones will be moot by that point.

I loved the action and the realness of the characters. These 3 brothers are the epitome of heroism. Their struggles to maintain their faith while dealing with evil is all too real. My soft spot was held for Levi, of course. It goes to show that one will stop at nothing to protect the ones they love. Yeah, love conquers all. The action and arising problems flowed well within this story. Now, this is Christian Fiction, but nowhere did the author hold back on details pertaining to subject matters that are often not easily seen in books of this genre. Well, not the ones that I’ve read anyway. Do I think that this was a great ending to the series? I can’t answer that at this time. But, I do think this is very worth reading, especially if you are a fan of dystopia.

    • For it to be Christian Fiction, there are a lot of “hardcore” scenes and subject matters. It’s like, maybe the Christian genre should have been left off. It’s really good!


I love comments, and try to reply as often as I can. Know that I read each and every one.
