NIL on Fire - Book Review

Nil on Fire (Nil #3)
by Lynne Matson

What is it about:
Despite Rives and Skye’s attempt to destroy Nil, the island remains. And back in this world, Nil won’t let Skye go. Haunted by a darkness she can’t ignore, Skye wrestles with Nil nightmares that worsen by the day and threaten to tear her apart. As Skye fights to keep her mind intact, she realizes that to finally break free of Nil, she must end Nil’s vicious cycle once and for all—and she can’t do it alone.

Who are Nil’s new arrivals? Who will return to the island? And who will survive in the end? In this final installment of the Nil series, the stakes have never been higher.

Losing isn’t an option, but winning will cost Skye everything.

What did I think of it:
A great ending to a very cool series.

In the first book NIL is a total mystery and only a few small secrets are discovered about the strange island. In NIL Unlocked more things gat revealed about NIL's purpose and its secrets. In this final book NIL doesn't stay on the background as a mysterious entity, but is taking the stage in a last attempt to get its way.

I was hooked from the start and eager to find out if and how Skye would manage to escape NIL's grasp. Characters from previous books return, new characters are introduced and NIL is ready for them. There is once again lots of drama, action, death, and secrets to solve. Time is running out for Skye and her friends.

I loved discovering what NIL is about, to read about the new people trapped on NIL, and about Skye's attempts to once and for all deal with NIL. This book is a worthy end to the the trilogy, and you bet this whole trilogy will go on my reread shelves.

All in all a very cool and entertaining read. You bet I'll keep an eye out for more books by Matson.

Why should you read it:
It's a cool and action-packed YA read.
