The pieces of Roya’s life don’t fit together anymore. Nothing makes sense. Joseph could be to blame for the fall of the Lucidites’ society. Zhuang is back and more powerful than ever. Chase, a gorgeous psychopath, is demanding her love and commitment. And the Institute is swarming with lies, betrayals, and conflicts. Roya knows she needs to focus and reconnect with Joseph if she is to survive, but how can she find clarity when everything around her is unraveling? The final chapter in The Lucidites Series will take up residence in reader’s bones. All secrets will be revealed. All villains will be confronted. And the greatest obstacles will be that of the heart. Revived delivers, giving audiences what they want most from the last in a fast-paced, thrilling series.

Excuse me while I fangirl for a while BECAUSE THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!! Such a perfect ending to an action-packed series which I've fallen in love with <3
REVIEW TO COME...
I loved this series for so many reasons! Thank you for taking us on this amazing journey! The well thought out plot, twists and turns, the love, sacrifice, and action was fantastic. Bravo
:) I didn't want it to end!!
Yes, I finally got around to finishing the trilogy!
This was a very original trilogy, and very enjoyable. As I said in prior reviews, it reads almost like a blue print of everything you need for a YA novel.
Now, on to this volume specifically. We finally get to see everything wrapped up, but not without some badness along the way. I was a little surprised to see some of the characters that didn't make it, but we knew the big battle would take a toll.
One problem that I did have, and it's one reason I don't read YA or romance in general. We had the ongoing love triangle with Roya and George and Aiden. Now, I understand that can be a bit of a staple in the genre. It's just that it always seems as though we are supposed to have sympathy for the girl caught in the middle. "Oh, I have these two wonderful guys after me, however shall I choose, woe is me!" Maybe it's because I'm a guy, but what about the guys in the triangle? Honestly, it's going to be one of the guys that really gets hurt, not the girl that has to make the choice. So it's hard for me to have sympathy for the female in that situation. I'm not saying it wouldn't be stressful or a hard choice to make, but it's still better than being odd man out I'm sure. Now, in defense of the novel, we are seeing everything from Roya's perspective, so it only makes sense we'd see her plight rather than the guys. But still, my sympathies would lie elsewhere.
Now, as for the final battle and actual ending. The battle was cool. I liked the way the various "villains" interacted, but I won't say anything more on that subject to prevent spoilers. As to how Roya's life ended up, well, once again I couldn't help but feel bad for the guy that lost out (which I also won't spoil).
I honestly thought there was a bit too much romance in this volume, but since I'm not really the target audience I am probably in the minority.
Overall, it was a fitting end to the trilogy. As I said earlier, I have to give Sarah Noffke major points for originality as it regards to the sci fi elements of the story. Very creative.
Oh and the cover. A hot blond in possible the tightest jeans in history??? Great cover!!!! (I mean, you know, the artwork is nice. Great color, composition, all that jazz...)
In closing, if you like YA sci fi, then read this trilogy. There's really not much else to say, as I'm sure you'll enjoy it. (The fact that I read the entire trilogy when I hardly ever read this genre says it all.)
I look forward to more from Ms. Noffke!
