Revue de presse

“Science (fiction) at the end of the world done right.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth’s future I’ve seen yet. I couldn’t put it down.” (Pittacus Lore, #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Am Number Four, about The Partials Sequence)

“A fine and frightening postapocalyptic thriller.” (Kirkus Reviews, about The Partials Sequence)

Présentation de l'éditeur

There is no avoiding it - the final war to decide the fate of both humans and Partials is at hand. Both sides hold in their possession a weapon that could destroy the other, and Kira has precious little time to prevent that from happening. She has one chance to save both species and the world with them, but it will only come at great personal cost.

Saga pas très passionnante. Personnages faibles, trame grossière, seul le boy friend, Marcus, s'en sort par ses dialogues, Vraiment pas génial.

Epilogue de la série du même niveau que les 2 premiers tomes. Beaucoup de personnages et d histoires parallèles qui parfois ne sont pas utiles. Mais dans l ensemble très bien.

Amazing ending to a great series! 24 mars 2014
Par DragonCeres - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Partials has to be my favorite YA dystopian series after reading all of the other super-hyped one. First, it stands out because the story is not focused on the love story, but on the actual issue of human extinction. Secondly, it covers deep moral and philosophical issues. How far would you go? What would you do if it meant saving humanity from extinction? Lastly, it is set in a believable world with a believable society where Dan Wells explains exactly how we got there, not like some other dystopians where the entire how we got to the dystopian society from today is jumped over.

The book focuses on several characters, Kira, Samm, Marcus, and Kira’s sisters’ Isolde and Xochi and Ariel. For everyone, it picks up exactly where the 2nd book left off. Throughout the series, we have seen Kira’s determination to save humans from RM, but now her determination is turned to saving both races. She’s arguably the best human in the book, because she no longer purely hates Partials based on the fact that they were engineered and not “really” human. No, she sees a way to save everyone and she won’t stand back and let humanity destroy itself, no matter how hard it tried.

Usually, I’m not a huge fan of multiple storylines, because I find some of them tedious. I felt the same way at the start of this book, but my opinion changed as I read as the individual storylines began merging with one another, or as one revelation is revealed in one POV but not yet in another POV. The pacing might be a bit slow in places because Dan Wells does not skimp on the world building, the science, or the moral issues at hand. Also, I have to mention the romance, the little bit there was. I’m so happy Kira chose who she did, but it was predictable. Yes, there’s just a tiny bit of love triangle, but I didn’t mind because the triangle wasn’t dragged out over three books and most of the story is not focused on the romance at all.

Ruins also include some new revelations about the people who created the Partials, the Trust. It was interesting and saddening to see how each of the Trust reacted to the consequences of their creations. They had the best intentions when they created Partials and RM, but sometimes even the best plans go awry, especially when you consider the unpredictable reaction of humans.

If you enjoy sci-fi, complex characters, and deeper moral issues in your books then Partials is the story for you. If you’re all about the romance and want a story revolved around that, then this probably won’t be your thing. Overall, I love this series and hope Dan Wells’ future works will be equally as enjoyable as this one!

A Disappointing Finish 14 avril 2014
Par TKnite - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
What happened to this series? The first book in this trilogy was great! The second book was pretty good. And this one was plain awful.

I don’t understand how this happened. I really don’t.

I suppose I’ll just catalogue all my issues in order of when I noticed them.

First off, there were way too many POVs in this story. WAY too many. There were so many POVs that by the time I got back around to one person after going through them all, I had forgotten what that person was doing. And there didn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the POV usage. Some characters had more prominent roles than others, sure, but seemingly random characters we had never met before ended up with POV roles, and they didn’t even do anything substantial to progress the plot. They were there solely to show the reader what was happening in places the reader wouldn’t otherwise see.

And this was a mistake, in my opinion, because frankly, most of the information from those POVs wasn’t necessary. Cutting it out wouldn’t have resulted in any confusion. Adding it, in fact, created confusion because I wasn’t sure why all these characters were suddenly tossed into the mix, and they didn’t contribute to my overall understanding of the plot.

The POV issue also created a terrible timeline problem. Because there were so many POVs, it was impossible to follow one character’s story through and through, so there were large time gaps between a lot of scenes…that were totally unannounced. Sometimes, it mentioned that “such and such event was so many days ago” somewhere in the middle of the chapter. Sometimes, you just had to figure it out yourself. And I was plain lost on occasion. I got back around to some characters and was completely confused because the makeup of so-and-so’s group had changed and they were in a different place than when I’d left them…and it turns out the last chapter they were in took place WEEKS ago.

Add these problems in to the actual plot of the story, and…

I had so many problems with the plot of this story.

First off, I find it so hard to believe that Kira can figure things out that many, many people who should be way smarter than her can’t. Also, the solution to the main problem in this story is so OBVIOUS, and Kira is the only one who “gets it.” I just…my belief in the plausibility of Kira’s abilities versus everyone else’s just eroded to almost zero over the course of this book.

Secondly, random last-minute antagonist alert! I’m not going to spoil it, but it annoyed me so bad that the ending of this book literally came down an eleventh-hour antagonist who came out of NOWHERE and stuck around just long enough for the protagonists to reach a resolution. What a freaking cop out!

Third, underdeveloped plot threads that dropped out of the sky. There were at least two important ones I can think of off the top of my head. One of them was a deus ex machina, that, of course, was involved in the battle against the last-minute antagonist.

Fourth, the plot of this book was just plain dense, and it felt like half the material in this book should have been in Fragments, to replace all that drawn-out journey stuff I had issues with.

Fifth, the heap of helpful contrived coincidences. I mean, really? Everybody shows up at the exact right moment? Back to back to back to keep the ball rolling? And it happened so many times in the final 100 pages that I wanted to chuck the book out the window.

Sixth, and finally, the ending sucked. It just…plain sucked. There’s a climax, and then the book ends a few pages later. There’s no real resolution. The battle ends and it just…stops. It read like there were three or four chapters missing from the end of the book, and I was not happy that I didn’t get to see how ANY of the issues that this entire trilogy was about were resolved. Not a single one.

I’m rarely angry when I finish a book. Content? Most of the time. Disappointed? Sometimes. But angry? Almost never.

But this time, I’m angry. The setup of this series promised the answers to huge questions, and never answered them. And there is nothing that riles me up more than when a book doesn’t deliver on its promises.

An OK finish to the series 11 juin 2014
Par J Doe - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
This is the third and presumably final book in the Partials series by Dan Wells. I’ve been reading this series from the beginning and have mostly enjoyed the books. This book picks up where the previous one, Fragments, left off. Kira is back on the East Coast, Samm is in Denver, and Marcus is still or around East Meadow. Unfortunately, these three main characters spend much time apart in this book, which I found disappointing, as I liked Kira and Marcus together. Kira is generally spunky, as always, although I am a bit skeptical that even a bright 17 yr old would be smarter than two experienced adult scientists/geneticists (because Kira is the one who discovers the solution to Partial expiration).

The ending to this was abrupt. I read the Kindle version, and at about 92-93% of way through, the situation still hadn’t been resolved. Then...OK, everyone’s convinced and wham, bam, the book’s over. This series almost needs another book--or at least a novella--to really wrap up all the loose ends and give the reader a sense of closure for many of the characters.

I also thought that the plot wandered at times and followed characters and events that had no real impact in the overall story line. Some of that material could easily have been cut, and a better ending could have been included. The storyline also seemed padded by the introduction this late in the series of another villian who was killing humans and collecting body parts (saying any more would be spoiler-ish).

Overall, an OK finish to the series. If you’ve read the other two books, you should read this one to see how it all turns out.

Interesting trilogy 21 avril 2014
Par Brenda Wise - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Very much enjoyed this trilogy, however the lack of Kira & Samm together in this book made it my least favorite. The excitement was good, but not as vivid and scary as when in the city for the two previous books. However, the twists and shock factor with a few "revelations" in this book did bring it all around and was satisfied with the conclusion.

Good but needed more Kira and Samm 20 mars 2014
Par ashlei - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I fell in love with Kira and Samm during the first two books. I wanted more of them here. At least Samm. I was disappointed that I had to read through 4 other people's viewpoints before I would hear from Samm or Kira again. They were the ones we fell in love with not Ariel or Shon. I found myself flipping pages trying to get to something better and exciting.

There was so much going on at once I found it difficult to keep up with everything with 5-6 different viewpoints going on. It was pretty boring when one character would find out new information and then another character would find out the same info later on and we would have to recap.

I just thought it could have been better.
