A Great Finale
5 out of 5 stars
What a great way to end the series, and what a series it’s been! Akart made me feel things that I don’t normally feel while reading normal books – let alone post-apocalyptic ones. Suicide Six is about as perfect of an ending you can write for a series and I’m glad that Akart picked the ending he did. Over the course of this series, we lost some people – and Akart lets you know that he nor his characters will forget these people.
The name itself made me smile when I realized he named it after a plotline in the book. I was driving to work and I got this big smile on my face (“oh, that’s why he called it Suicide Six!”). He was able to sneak it in there without making it seem overdone or make you react like when a character says the movie title in the middle of a movie.
It’s crazy to think back on the first part of this book and realize that all happened during the same story. Akart splits the book in two and gives you not one, but two battles you won’t soon forget. And then the end he gives you yet another one if you didn’t have enough action in the opening. The final battle and then scenes after (I’m trying so hard not to give anything away) really hit me in the soft spot. Akart was able to get that gut reaction out of me that most authors strive for.
Overall, Suicide Six might be my favorite book in the series (it’s probably tied with the first book, Axis of Evil). The writing is just perfect, it’s not in your face with polarizing politics, and has so many heartwarming moments that will be remembered long after the battle scenes are forgotten. Suicide Six and the entire Lone Star Series will hold a special place in my heart.
