3, 2, 1… BOOM.

Things are finally looking up for the Resistance. Sure, Alessa is still processing the revelation that the best friend she’d presumed dead is miraculously alive, though far from well… And her boyfriend is being manipulated under threat of blackmail. But her quest for justice against those behind the systematic extermination of the world population is so close to victory she can taste it.

And then in a matter of seconds, everything Alessa believes in is shaken to the core. Months of preparation are obliterated. The people she cares for most are lost.

But Alessa is still standing. And Paragon must pay.

The odds are grim, but unexpected allies surface in the most unlikely of places: A new pair of citizens still under the colony’s rule who notice something amiss in the latest drama. An old adversary who realizes the error of her ways. And a veritable army of inhuman power and terrible strength, with an insatiable thirst for vengeance. The trustworthiness of each of these factions is yet to be proven, but without many other options, Alessa may have to take what she can get. Especially since the Engineers, never to be outdone, also have a few more tricks up their sleeves…

The long-awaited final installment in the riveting Stitch Trilogy, Stuck will have readers gripping their seats as Alessa and a handful of intrepid survivors usher their harrowing journey to a close, risking everything as they endeavor – once and for all – to set things right.

My Review

Stuck is a phenomenal completion to a wonderfully complex, challenging, and heartfelt adventure. My heart jumped for joy when I found myself finally reading the last chapters of this brilliantly original and deeply captivating journey full of heart, hope, and love. I found myself happily lost to this world of impossible evil, unconquerable hope, and indestructible love. I have been looking forward to this elusive ending, and I found myself completely and totally satisfied in every way a story can offer. What a fantastic journey for those who dare to walk a brutally thought-provoking yet infinitely boundless story that will painfully break you and then miraculously transform your heart into something too precious for pure for words!

Alessa has found herself in a precarious situation with the rebels. She holds truths that if shared may jeopardize what has come together with the blood, sweat, and tears of countless lives that were viciously sacrificed. She and Isaac must navigate their new life with care while they hold onto the hope of freeing those left behind. When their world unexpectedly implodes around them, they will hold tight to their dream of freedom no matter how much they are battered and bruised. Their focus cannot waiver, or the darkness hunting them will cut them down like chaff in the wind. When they find unlikely allies who agree to stand by their side, they will do everything humanly possible to keep the tenuous camaraderie strong and untainted. When Fate continues to smile down on them, will they become reckless and lose their focus by taking out vengeance on a traitor, or will they keep their eyes on the prize and see the truth behind all of the layers of lies that their lives have become?

Alessa and Isaac and the rest of the fabulous cast of characters stole my heart once again. Their tender and earnest words and actions shredded my heart as I watched and shared in their hurt and hope. I cheered them on with every step as I watched their determination and fierce spirit of justice brighten and strengthen the longer their hope is fed and savored. I enjoyed every part of this soul stirring journey, and I couldn’t love this superb storyline and incredible characters more.

Samantha Durante has once again left me in awe of the depth of her brilliant creativity and boundless heart. She is a beautiful and powerful force that I can’t wait to see mature and strengthen in the years to come. I look forward to more incredibly imaginative and deeply breathtaking stories to come!
