We want our son returned. This girl is proof that we can save you all. If you ignore our plea, we will kill our hostages one at a time.
To be a Pure is to be perfect, untouched by Detonations that scarred the earth and sheltered inside the paradise that is the Dome. But Partridge escaped to the outside world, where Wretches struggle to survive amid smoke and ash. Now, at the command of Partridge’s father, the Dome is unleashing nightmare after nightmare upon the Wretches in an effort to get him back.
At Partridge’s side is a small band of those united against the Dome: Lyda, the warrior; Bradwell, the revolutionary; El Capitan, the guard; and Pressia, the young woman whose mysterious past ties her to Partridge in way she never could have imagined. Long ago a plan was hatched that could mean the earth’s ultimate doom. Now only Partridge and Pressia can set things right.
To save millions of innocent lives, Partridge must risk his own by returning to the Dome and facing his most terrifying challenge. And Pressia, armed only with a mysterious Black Box, containing a set of cryptic clues, must travel to the very ends of the earth, to a place where no map can guide her. If they succeed, the world will be saved. But should they fail, humankind will pay a terrible price...
Imagine a world world people have objects embedded in their bodies. Eyes stuck in the ground, carnivorous vines eating you alive, ick! The setting is so very disturbing. And I couldn’t help but love it. The writing is so vividly descriptive that you literally inhale the pages. I know I did when I read this. This series just gets better and better. There’s a couple of twists and turns in this one and I really just like where Julianna is taking the story. I just want to know more about why it happened.
There’s four point of views, so if you’re not into that then you may have trouble reading it. Although after a while, I got used to the viewpoints and looked forward to reading their stories. All the characters we know and love are back, only this time they might have answers. Even though there’s a fair amount of characters, I still enjoy reading Pressia and El Capitan’s points of view. They held my interest the most. There’s a little romance building and budding between some characters and not to mention some unrequited love happening so even though Fuse is set in a post-apocalyptic world, you can’t forget about the dramatic relationships between the main characters.
Fuse is wonderful addition to the Pure trilogy, and I can’t wait until the final book. Purely addicting and enthralling, I think it has something for everyone. It’s even worth reading just to read about the vivid descriptions!
