The stunning conclusion to the trilogy that began with Pure, recommended by People for those who loved The Hunger Games
With his father now dead, Partridge has assumed leadership of the Dome, one of the last few refuges from the ravaged wastelands of the outside world. At first, Partridge is intent on exposing his father's lies, taking down the rigid order of the Dome, and uniting its citizens with the disfigured Wretches on the outside. But from his new position of power, things are far more complex and potentially dangerous than he could have ever imagined.
On the outside, a band of survivors faces a treacherous journey to Dome. Pressia carries with her the key to salvation. If she can get it to the Dome, the Wretches could one day be healed and everyone might be able to put the horrors of the past behind them. Bradwell, the revolutionary, cannot forgive so easily. Despite Pressia's pleas, he is determined to bring down the Dome and hold its citizens accountable for leaving the rest of the world to burn. El Capitan, the former rebel leader, wants to help Pressia save as many lives as possible--but he's struggling to reconcile his newfound compassion with his vicious past.
As former allies become potential enemies, the fate of the world is more uncertain than ever. Will humanity fall to destruction? Or will a new world rise from the ashes?

Partridge has murdered his evil father, Willux, and assumed control of the Dome, his goal to effect a rapprochement between the Pures, who live in the Dome, and the Wretches, who are survivors of the Detonations and whom the Pures regard as no longer human. Meanwhile, Pressia, Bradwell, and El Capitan are attempting to reach the domed city with conflicting missions: Pressia plans to deliver a medication and its formula that might cure the Wretches, who are badly mutilated, fused to whatever object they happened to be near when the Detonations occurred (El Capitan and his brother Helmud are fused); as for El Capitan and Bradwell, they plan to destroy the Dome even if it means revolution. To complicate matters, both El Capitan and Bradwell are in love with Pressia; how will this affect their missions? Baggott’s conclusion to her monumental Pure trilogy about a postapocalyptic, strife-torn world is hardly original, but it’s effective in its dramatic, occasionally suspenseful treatment of its subject and in its charismatic characters. Readers should be aware, however, that this is not a stand-alone title; to understand its complexities, it’s necessary to have read the preceding two volumes. --Michael Cart
