The Final Wars End by S A Asthana

It’s hard to say goodbye, but all good things must come to an end, and The Final Wars End brings the trilogy to a satisfying conclusion.

When we left Bastien at the end of the last book, Lunar colony, Nippon One was in control of a drug addled madman and his psychopathic wife, and they’d just waged war against the Martian colony of Port Sydney, who was in the clutches of its AI dictators, the High Council.

Picking up directly from end of The Final Wars Rage, Bastien tries to end Yukito’s disastrous reign by rescuing his younger brother, Reo, from prison. Meanwhile, Belle attempts to infiltrate the Martian quantum computer, and disable the High Council from within.

However, when hatred and depravity are in charge, is there any hope for humanity’s survival?

The first few chapters are slowed down by necessary explanations recapping the previous books, but once that is out of the way, the pace picks up and carries through to the end of the book with a breathless speed.

The author knows how to increase the stakes with gut wrenching intensity. The characters are so engaging that even the fate of the mad queen, Marie, is emotional.

I enjoyed reading about Bastien, Belle, Alice and Cube as each chose their various sides and worked for their own agendas.

A satisfying book, and a fitting end to the trilogy, I award The Final Wars End

The Final Wars End is available for $5.04 ebook and $12.99 print book on Amazon.

Read my reviews of the first book in the trilogy, The Final Wars Begin.

And my review of the second book in the trilogy, The Final Wars Rage.
