Summary from Goodreads
Ari is back on Earth but it doesn't feel like home to her anymore because of what Kelvin, lunatic chemist turned President, did to the planet. Ari has to live with the thought of never being able to walk on Earth again or live peacefully with the threat of Zeus among them like a presence. Throughout the book, she will be forced to make hard and difficult decisions, lose people she cared about and question herself. After all, she can be a half alien with the power to heal and make humans just like her but she's also a teenage girl, forced to experience things that most people would never even think of. She's just a fragile girl placed in the center of the biggest war that took place on Earth. That's not a teenager's average responsibility.
Jackson in the beginning of the book was broken not only because of the torture he had to go through but because he didn't know if Ari was alive and that was the biggest torture for him. But one thing I admired about Jackson is that he never stopped believing in Ari and there were times where she was stronger, both mentally and physically, than him and he was okay with that. She turned out to be a skilled fighter and that's because she had the best teacher she could ask for. Their relationship is not just romantic, they are best friends, partners and allies. They have a strong connection that nobody can either understand nor break.
Well, one thing I have to say about this series is that it has its big share of crazy villains. I mean they're everywhere and that's something I really liked because you honestly don't know who to trust. In addition, there was a long list of deaths especially in Collide and I just couldnt't wait the final battle and what was going to happen to Zeus.
In this breathtaking conclusion to the Taking series, we have it all. Romance, suspense, despicable villains, a well- written story, that was a little slow paced, but that was okay because it prepared us for the end because the end of the was is just the beginning.
