The ending of the Lives of Tao series is fun and enjoyable. It finishes the storyline well. The series is a great ride, written with great moments of tension and humor. The whole series has a similar feel, so if you enjoyed the previous books, then you will enjoy this book as well. ( )

Believe it or not, reading this was like reading a healthy but calorie-laden meal served up for the whole family, full of hormonal spices, just a hint of spiritual grace, and finally washed down with a whole bucket of scotch.

That is: This book was mightily satisfying and easily the best of the trilogy.

A lot of time has passed, and Roen's son is a feisty teenager wanting to jump in the war, which is fine for a setup, but how Chu weaves him through the tale and sets him up to save his papa is more than satisfying. It's mythological. The wrap-up of the trilogy was extremely satisfying, if not quite as epic as the second. The underwater base battle was sweet, but it's the reappearance of truly memorable big bads that brings meat to the series.
Even the epilogue puts a bow on the tale with two broken arms and a beautiful sense that all roads lead to Roen.

Could the future be more bright? We've got our three-times-three act play in full swing here, and I couldn't be more pleased by how it turned out.

I'm a solid fan. If the rest hadn't sold me before, then the moment when Roen started using his head to solve the big problems did it for me. My middle-aged boy has grown up. :)

Received a free copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Since the previous book a lot has changed in the world, Cameron is now a teenager, the world has split into pro-Prophus and pro-Genjix factions and with the revelation that aliens were inhabiting people, steps have been take to eradicate them by the Interpol Extraterrestrial Task Force. But a new threat has appeared, the Genjix are developing a technology to change the world. World War. A Genjix scientist who defects to the other side holds the key to preventing bloodshed on an almost unimaginable scale.

Roen survived the lost of his Quasing, Tao, but has lost some of his authority now he is no longer a host. He still has a key role to play in the battle. With Tao’s influence Cameron is a mature teen, but still suffers from not seeing the bigger picture at times. As the family are split after a Prophus attack, and Cameron starts to have a crush on the daughter of the scientist, the stakes suddenly raised much higher than before. Roen plays his trump card, and the final scene is set.

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first two in the series, I was really looking forward to this one, and mostly it didn’t disappoint. The characters are confident, the plot flips and twists nicely, and the whole concept has been well thought through and written. But this one didn’t have the same edge as the first two. Perhaps because it is the final one, and certain things need to be wrapped up, it didn’t have the cliff hanger ending or the pace of the others. That said it was still worth reading, and I do have a inkling that this will be continued; well at least I hope so.

A decent finale to an entertaining series. Still some open plot lines so guessing that we will see more in this universe...

4 Stars for a fun read. ( )

How did this descend into a mess? I had such high hopes for the trilogy. The first entry had started well enough, with what seemed like a carefully plotted (maybe too much so) story and book. Books two and three appear to have suffer from sequel decay, and this last entry seemed to have it in severity.
Needless to say this review have spoilers for the last two books. Stop reading if you don't want to know!!
 
Book takes place a little over a decade (maybe more) since Book 2. Cameron is now a young man, in high school with some teenager problems. Roen and Jill are back together, living in the Pacific Northwest as she heads the operations in that area. The war is still going on.
 
It just felt like the author had no idea here to go. We split into three plotlines: Jill heading operations, Roen going off with Marco and Cameron stumbling off with a teenaged girl with all of the complications that come with hormones and that time of life. I liked Roen in Book One but now he has to share the stage with his family and unfortunately the introduction of Cameron forces him to share the stage (along with Jill). This seemed like the author had too much to handle on his plate and not enough. None of these arcs were particularly interesting at all. Cameron descends into the teenage boy who lets his hormones control him. Roen is separated from Tao (this separation is also minimized which was frustrating--I wanted more on this!) and reverts back somewhat to his Book 1 form (which is not good). Jill doesn't really get much development. I honestly didn't understand how or why Jill and Roen reconciled. I didn't care for her but I had hoped/expected we'd get more development from her.
 
The Enzo plotline was also somewhat predicable. He was being set up for his ending and it was telegraphed early on in Book 2. So when his end came I can't say I was surprised or pleased. Considering the overall conclusion of the trilogy it would have been a nice surprise if his ending was not what it was or along that particular vein.
 
It's too bad because the book began with a bang. I had expected not to like the beginning of the book (since I didn't like the starts of the last two books) but at first it seemed like the setup had a lot of potential. Cameron in particular initially reminded me somewhat of the upgraded "assets" of the Jason Bourne movies, where the next versions are faster, more powerful, more brutal, etc. His storyline had potential to go there considering his youth and how his character came about, but it was a totally lost cause.
 
I don't regret it but I am not as excited as Chu's other works. I was particularly intrigued by his 'Time' series but this makes me hesitant. Oh well. These were purchases as mass market paperbacks so it wasn't too expensive of a purchase. Would recommend library instead though. ( )
