Burn (The Pure Trilogy) by Julianna Baggott

Burn is the final installment in, The Pure Trilogy.

Burn is perhaps  the most interesting book of the entire trilogy. Baggott takes the reader inside and outside of the dome in a seamless manner. Telling the stories of the characters who survive in both worlds with ease and entertainment.

Baggott writing shows rather than tells the emotional and physical sides of her well developed, engaging characters.

Burn starts right were "Fused" ended. Partridge has returned to the dome and is now the leader. He has a variety of internal and external issues to deal with, Stepping into the leader role will be is biggest challenged yet. His self doubt might be his undoing.

Pressia, Bradwell, El Capitan and Helmut are in Ireland with another group of detonation survivors and when they return to American thye plan to bring down the dome.

Burn reveals more about the life and character's inside the dome than ever before, while keeping you intrigued about life outside the dome.  Both worlds are harsh, unforgiving and relentless however only those of one world can survive in both.

There is a tremendous amount of character growth and all characters are faced with life altering choices ---The ending will be hated by many but I loved it.

Grade: A
