This last book just felt I don't know, lazy? For one, hardly anything happened. I can't recall anything other than a character death that stuck out in my mind. Then there's basically a forty page epilogue which is freaking boring. But I have to say that the biggest problem I had with this final installment was that my two favorite characters were non-existent.
Marco doesn't get a point of view until over halfway through the book and Lexi might as well have not been in the damn thing at all because even when she does get a point of view it's like a freaking text conversation that lasts for a page or two. I really hate Ryan and Shay and I'm neutral or just don't care during Ginger's chapters so the book was pretty unenjoyable for me.
That's It? I mean yeah they get out of the mall but that's it? I knew this was the last book so that was an obvious thing but the author didn't include anything more suspenseful. The first book was amazing but the second and the third books were awful. I think the only thing the author did right in this book was make the book pages shorter than the second book.

The story and plot started to pick up the pace a little later than I hoped. But the context never fell flat. This book really shocked me cause I didn't have interest in it at all. But my older sister had the book and after I had do my required summer reading for I couldn't figure out what book to read.
Love and behold my sister showed me her bookshelf and bet that I would like and to no one's surprise I did. I actually I personally loved the beginning of the book. I actually liked it better than The Maze Runner and that book was a hit. For those who really liked maze runner You might like how "No Dawn Without Darkness" turns out in the end. Just to add on those who have asthma there were for sure some situations I could relate to.

This book is marred some by the long disappearances of Marco and Lexi Marco goes through major changes which are mainly seen through the eyes of other characters before becoming getting his first point-of-view chapter about halfway through; Lexi is more or less displaced in reader attention by Ginger. It explored the ways people have to fight to come back from tragedy, the tropes of public grief we all know too well, the difficulties inherent to being a victim of a catastrophe that's personal to you but is seemingly shared by an entire community, and the struggle to recover one's self after doing shocking and horrible things to survive, and the lingering impact of PTSD.
The way it was resolved for each character was far too easy, but Lorentz showed a solid awareness and insight of what it might be like to come 'home' after an incident like the mall quarantine. Feb 17, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: j-drive. This was probably my favorite installment of the series. The mall is officially in chaos, they are reviewing no outside help from the government, and each of our main characters are dealing with their own frightful issues.
Ginger and Maddy had been tasked with finding Lexi but she's no where to be found. Marco is leading the gang who has resorted to desperate and violent measures to survive. Ryan is consumed with finding Shay and questioning the actions of Mike and Drew.
No Dawn Without Darkness (No Safety in Numbers #3)
It's unbelievable to ima This was probably my favorite installment of the series. It's unbelievable to imagine the circumstances that could arise in this situation and this book definitely explored those possibilities. I love books that do not shy away from the uncomfortable situations and this book met them head on.
Great final installment.
Nov 30, Danna rated it did not like it. A decent enough airplane book: straight-forward teen thriller of the sort you might stumble across in film form on SyFy. I was halfway through before I looked up the series, only to find that I was reading the last in the trilogy. I get the fascination with threes and the power of a trilogy, but please have enough of a story to truly warrant three books.
When the third book stands alone, it's a clear sign you didn't need the first two. Oct 04, Logan rated it liked it. It was a great book. Jul 31, Riley rated it liked it Shelves: 3-star-books.
I'm gonna keep this review short because I have twenty minutes to write it. While the first book was blood-pumping and fast-paced, the second book was slow and dragged for what felt like forever. I was ready to be finished with this series, and was happy to find that the last book was the shortest. First o I'm gonna keep this review short because I have twenty minutes to write it. First off, this book is written in first person instead of third person like the first two books.
I don't understand the change; it didn't help readers feel for the characters, and it only made things confusing because the characters don't have unique voices. I just found this choice useless and unnecessary, but the author did change it to the characters being the chapter titles instead of the locations. This helped because certain characters, like Lexi and Marco, aren't focused on a lot.
Instead, the author introduces Ginger and Maddie as main characters, and I could not be happier. I was actually very upset when Maddie was killed off they literally could've killed off Mike , but it gave Ginger some great ambitions. If the whole book was written in Ginger's perspective, I would've been happy. She seemed relatable and was the only one not trying to be a badass.

Another thing I liked about this book was Kris and Ryan's friendship. The author must have a soft spot for Ryan, because he always gets the best arcs. Like the last book, he's helping little kids escape, and finally quits the football team. Also Marco was barely in this book, and I could not be happier. I hated his voice in the last book, and he went through a huge character change.
I think there was maybe one chapter narrated by him, and I couldn't give a shit while reading it. While the book was much shorter and easier to get through, the ending was a little disappointed. Spoiler alert, the teens escape from the mall about halfway through the book, meaning we get four unnecessary chapters afterwards telling us what happened to them after the quarantine. The only one I cared about was Ginger because, once again, she's my queen. If you're thinking about reading this series, I'd recommend the first book and stopping there, unless you care about and like the characters.
This book is really intense. It picks up where the last one ended. As a whole trilogy the books are really intense, good, BUT violent.

This is the book the first two have been building up to and you can see the intensity increase with each book. The finally is complete Cabin Fever. With that said the intensity gripped my mind keeping me on the edge of my seat. It was so intense that this boo This book is really intense.
It was so intense that this book actually affected my speech pattern's at one point. Insanely intense books do that to me but never ever that badly before. The one thing I wish was that the bomb was tied into the story a little more into the mystery. I love some of the symbolism of Shayla saying goodbye to her grandmother that was added. I am really disappointed that the once character Chris sort of disappears at the end.
