The Release is the thrilling YA conclusion to Tom Isbell’s suspenseful post-apocalyptic Prey series, perfect for fans of The Maze Runner. Two months have passed since Book, Cat, Hope, and the others rescued the remaining Less Thans from Liberty, but they aren’t safe yet, and soon they’ll have to risk everything in order to defeat their enemies.
The group must leave the camp for good and escape the wolves, the Brown Shirts, and the Hunters. Most important, they need to stop Chancellor Maddox before she executes her Final Solution and grows even more powerful.
While the others are seeking freedom, for Hope, the battle has become personal. She wants revenge, no matter what the cost—and she’s willing to sacrifice anything standing in her way. The group may still be weak, but they don’t have time to wait. They must overthrow the Chancellor, even if it means joining forces with those who once betrayed them.

Really good series Would read it again
(I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) This was a YA dystopian, and the end of the series. Book and Hope were strong characters in this, but they were also quite separate for most of the book, with Hope’s dislike of her scars causing a rift between them. The storyline in this was about rescuing the remaining Less Thans, running from wolves and hunters, and also about Hope getting revenge on Chancellor Maddox. We did get some action, but it felt like there was quite a lot of travelling going on as well, and the pace was quite slow because of it. The ending to this was pretty good, and I was happy with the way things were resolved. 6.5 out of 10
