Review quote

The conclusion to the Fallen World trilogy serves as an extension to the second volume, The Lives We Lost (2013), with Kaelyn and her ragtag gang on the run from the Wardens, as they cross a disease-ravaged America on their way to the CDC in Atlanta, where a woman claims to be able to reproduce the cure sample that Kaelyn is carrying. The impediments are what you would expect-sickness, injury, death, and sacrifice-but Crewe gives the book a late shot in the arm (so to speak) by offering up surprisingly complicated and nuanced portrayals of both the Wardens and CDC members. They, like everyone else in Crewe's grim dystopia, are neither good nor evil. Just fighting to survive. - Daniel Kraus Booklist"show more

About Megan Crewe

Megan Crewe (www.megancrewe.com) finds writing about herself much more difficult than making things up. A few definite facts: she lives in Toronto, Canada, with her husband and three cats (and does on occasion say "eh"); she tutors teens with special needs; and-thankfully-the worst virus she's caught so far is the garden variety flu. In addition to the Fallen World trilogy, she is also the author of "Give Up the Ghost."show more

Our customer reviews

This series has taken my heart for a spin. There are moments of sheer terror, especially in the first book, The Way We Fall, where we're not sure if our main character will make it through. A virus threatening a small island, slowly escalating onto the main shore, seeping across Canada and creeping into the United States. When Kaelyn discovers a vaccine, she knows she must get it into the hands of the right people. Leaving the island with a small group of friends, she sets off across Canada, making her way to Toronto. The Lives We Lost reveals more challenges, more threats and more loss as the group gets closer to the CDC, hoping it can be the place to save them. The story concludes with The Worlds We Make, the final stretch and suddenly everything Kaelyn thought she knew about the CDC, those chasing her, and the vaccine, seems like a lie. There's no way to trust everyone and putting the vaccine into the wrong hands could be the end of it. This book is a game changer, as most finales are. Kaelyn is forced to act in ways she never thought she would, and her loved ones are dying around her. Fear of what's to come haunts everyone and there's no telling how long they will last in this new world. Trying to keep her group alive, they cross the border into the States, finding new means of surviving. Seeing the world change through Kaelyn's eyes is heartbreaking. She wants what's best for everyone, but she also knows she can't just let people walk all over her. She doesn't hesitate to use her gun on those that could cause her harm, and she vows to do anything to keep the vaccine safe. She does some things that she regrets, but don't we all when we are in life or death situations? Fear changes us, and in a world that is falling apart at her feet, it's hard for Kaelyn not to change with it. I understand all of her actions. I know it was hard for her to do some of the things she had to do, but she did it to survive, and in the end, she realized that that is not who she really is and she will do anything to make things right. Crewe has perfected the end of the world. Her virus is something that seems likely, a flu gone wrong, and the way that it has spread over the world into an epidemic is all too real. Think SARS or Swine flu and we know how quickly these things spread. The way humans act when suddenly they cannot get everything they want is haunting and truly realistic in the way she writes. We become animals, fighting for survival and not caring who we take down with us. Humans become enemies. Food is something you will kill for and knowing there is a vaccine could mean a certain death at the hands of someone who wants it. Kaelyn's life has changed drastically and suddenly she has to make some choices she never thought she'd have to make. She is brave, determined and eager to give the vaccine to someone who will use it for the good of the world. Crewe asks questions that we don't know the answers to until it's too late - how would you react if a flue took over? Would you stay the same or would you change into someone else? How do you hold on to humanity when there seems to be nothing left. You hope. You hold onto hope. And you try to survive.show more
