In the high-octane conclusion of the Alex Pella novels, the brilliant doctor and inventor finds himself racing against the unstoppable ambition of Jules Windsor who now leads The New Reality. When Jules begins to uncover the powerful, long-forgotten technology behind the world’s massive megalithic structures, he sets into motion the same cascade of events that once destroyed the ancient civilization that built them. As the planet heads toward an apocalyptical upheaval not seen since biblical times, Alex and his team know they must stop Jules––and The New Reality––once and for all.

The Final Reality: An Alex Pella Novel based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
"The Final Reality" by Stephen Martino is the final book in a series. This is something that I did not know when I decided to review this book. While the story is interesting, coming in at the finale is not something that I recommend. The series takes place in a future where mankind has been hit by disease and there's a whole new world order. While I was able to pick up some of what was going on by the story I was reading, there was obviously a lot that I missed in the previous books. I didn't have a lot of the backstory of how the world became what it is, and that was a bit confusing for me. However, my confusion is not because of the writing, but because I was coming in too late. The writing was clear and Martino was able to describe the scene as well as the characters in a way that I could make it through the story. The overall flow of the book was good, and I believe it is a series that I would like to read all the books in. There is a lot of action, some of which could be graphic at times. They're moving through a life or death/end of the world situation and the book keeps up the pace so the reader is never bored. I'm not gong to say I would recommend this book since it is not a standalone novel, but I will go out on a limb and say I'd recommend the series. The writing is good and I'm intrigued enough to want to go in and fill in all the blanks for myself.
I first read the first book in this series back in 2014 but I never really forgot it--It left a lasting impression on me. I somehow missed the 2nd in the series--but I will get to it!! These can definitely be read as stand alone as I have proved. The Final Reality should scare you to death--especially after reading the afterward by the author that tells where he got his info. This will remind you of a Star Wars type book--and reads like one--it will capture your attention right from the start and keep on going!! Will Alex be able to overcome his arch enemy and save the earth from total destruction? There are more then several occurrences and events that should remind you of the present day and what is going on in the world today.
