New York Times Bestseller

Kira, Samm, and Marcus fight to prevent a final war between Partials and humans in the gripping final installment in the Partials Sequence, a series that combines the thrilling action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Blade Runner and The Stand.

There is no avoiding it—the war to decide the fate of both humans and Partials is at hand. Both sides hold in their possession a weapon that could destroy the other, and Kira Walker has precious little time to prevent that from happening. She has one chance to save both species and the world with them, but it will only come at great personal cost.

Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal
“Mr. Wells has recombined familiar dystopian elements, added original ones, and thrown in dashes of dry wit to create a sprawling, action-packed medical thriller full of big ideas and exciting reversals.”
Pittacus Lore
“A thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth’s future I’ve seen yet. I couldn’t put it down.”
School Library Journal
04/01/2014
Gr 9 Up—The final war between the Partials and the humans is at hand. Though both sides possess weapons that could destroy the other, Kira Walker holds the key to preventing all-out destruction.
Kirkus Reviews
2013-12-07
In the wake of one apocalypse, can humans and Partials, cloned supersoldiers, live together, or will the world end again? Kira Walker found a cure for the RM plague. The Partials think her DNA might hold the cure for their "expiration date," the genetic trait that shuts their bodies down when they turn 20. The Partials held the last remnant of humanity hostage until Kira turned herself in for study (Fragments, 2013); when her biopsies yield no answers, she sets off to find unaligned Partials in hopes of finding a solution to the expiration date herself. Meanwhile, Samm, her Partial boyfriend, makes a startling discovery halfway across the country, and he sets out to find Kira and, he hopes, save both races. However, a splinter group of humans plans to use a nuclear warhead to destroy the Partials. And two very different genetically modified scientists are stalking the survivors; one shaped like a monster is warning everyone, and another shaped like a man is intent on harvesting everyone to create a perfect future. Wells concludes his post-apocalyptic, action-packed trilogy with a literal bang and a lot of blood. Believable characters face tough moral choices, and though the end is tidy, the twists and treachery that get readers there are all the fun. It's enjoyable alone but best read after the first two. Science (fiction) at the end of the world done right. (Science fiction. 14 & up)

    Awsome Series

    This is I am sorry to say the last of the series. I am one of those readers that love reading trilogies. Thank you for the 4th book. I have been caught in a few series that I began to think would never end. The Wheel Of Time being the worst because tragically Mr. Jordan died I think after book 12 before he finished it. I had read every book more than once waiting for the next one to come out.
    That being said I surprise myself by being sad that this series has ended. I wouldn't mind if Mr. Wells wrote another three that begins 5 years down the road just to let us know how everyone is doing in the new world. Just a sugestion. Please?
    I just purchased the other series by Dan Wells, I am excited to get started on it and can't wait to let you know what I think. Thank you Mr. Wells for hours of excitement, sorrow, laughter, and hope.

    A Must Read

    I've been following Dan Wells since his series, 'I am Not a Serial Killer,' and his writing only gets better with every new book he puts out. The plot, the characters are all extremely well developed and real. A wonder sense of humor, drama and urgency. Over all, it's just a good book!

    Great Ending to the Series!

    Kira succeeded where the Trust, Dr. Morgan, and Dr. Vale failed. The humans and partials were so busy focusing on how to cure RM and expirations, respectively, that they never stopped to think about how the two may be linked. Kira was able to look at the problems plaguing both species from a unique perspective and figured out how to eradicate them both to ensure the survival of bother species.

    Just like Fragments, Ruins is told from multiple perspectives. The different perspectives provide a clearer picture of the sequence of events and ties them all together. The different perspectives all delve into the overarching theme of this book, which is survival in spite of differences and moral dilemmas.

    Great ending to an exciting trilogy.

    I really enjoyed the whole series and was impressed with the twists and unexpected turns throughout! I am 56 and bought it for my 20 something daughter-in-law who loved it also.
