United – O.M. Faure

United (The Cassandra Programme #3)

United by O.M. Faure

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The breathtaking roller coaster ride that is The Beautiful Ones trilogy comes to a huge climax. It really is a ride as I had no idea what twists were coming next.

The Ugandan side of the mission is over and now DeAnn and Olivia are now relocated to the USA, and if anything this is the book of the trilogy that hit me the hardest. The stark realisation that the African portions were hard to stomach, I personally feel that what comes from the Almighty USA is by far harder to comprehend.

Morals and Ethics are really out of the window this time and, as in the previous two books, the possible reality of what I was reading struck home, the fact that this was SO close to homemade this more of ann out-right horror story. IN the same way that A Clockwork Orange was never meant to be Horror, the nature of the outcomes (or possible outcomes) make this scarier than any Stephen King book.

United rounds off and almost finishes the Beautiful Ones story (as mentioned before there is a prequel short story that answers a few more questions) in such a way that I was actively hoping that the next books were around the corner. After speaking with Ms Faure on Twitter last week, it seems we have a bit of a wait for the next batch of missions. I for one, can’t wait.
