Undone (Unknown #3) by Wendy Higgins
Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen, marred by one ugly fact; it’s under enemy control. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been captured, and it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the only precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.
Remy Haines is a lover, not a fighter, so when she finds herself in enemy territory, expected to feign allegiance while gathering intel for the rebel cause, she’s never been more out of her element. Tensions only increase when her feelings for Jacob “Tater” Tate won’t go away, and the enemy’s leader takes an interest in her. She’s torn between what her heart wants, and what she knows she should do. As for what her body needs…well, it’s always had a mind of its own.
When I first started this book and saw that it was in alternating chapters of Remy and Amber, I wasn’t sure what to think about this, since the first two books were just from Amber’s perspective (until the very end of Unrest, of course). I can see why adding Remy’s perspective was necessary, considering they are now separated.
Surprisingly, I actually found Remy’s chapters even more interesting than Amber’s. I mean, she was in the enemy base, interacting with the Baelese! I very much enjoyed her chapters after all. Reading about life inside the enemy base, for both humans and the Baelese, was intense.
I, of course, enjoyed Amber’s chapters as well, but I think Remy’s were my favourite.
Wendy, you almost killed me at the end there! How dare you do that! Omg – that’s all I will say.
Everything about this book was just so good, just as the first two were. I love Wendy Higgins. I love her books. I love this series as individual books and as a whole. I re-read Unknown and Unrest in anticipation of this final book and I fell in love with them all over again. Highly recommend this series and this author to anyone who appreciates a good story!
