Goodreads Blurb: n the third installment of the Collide series, we start off with Sherry, taken prisoner in the enforcement facility. The little bunker family must now decide whether it’s worth the risk to try to save her or if it would bring doom to them all. Lily has started showing signs of her gift progressing, which may not be a desirable thing. And as Marissa starts to act strangely, Jeff must come to terms that there may be more to her illness that meets the eye.
Daniel, the Lighter who shocked Lillian with his human emotions will reappear, but for what purpose? Will Sherry be rescued before it’s too late? Will Daniel prove to be a genuine miracle? Will Cain be able to fully get over his love for Sherry and move on with Lillian? And how much more trouble can the new Taker cause for the rebels?
Some will make it and some won’t as the story continues…

This is probably my favorite in the series, so far.  There was drama, betrayal, and unexplainable changes.

It was great to see Sherry show different emotions.  She even got angry, which is something we haven’t seen her do.  There are more battles, and relationships of those in the bunker change.  I liked that there were more battles, and they weren’t all Sherry centered.  I swear that woman is a magnet for trouble.  I have to say, I absolutely adore Lily.  She’s intelligent and beyond perceptive for her age.  I really want to know her part in all of this.  The Specials also start fighting alongside their Keepers. Like I said, I loved that there was more action.

The thing I love about this series is that Crane lets people die.  She doesn’t try to keep them alive when they aren’t needed so as not to disappoint people.  The deaths in the series so far have served a purpose for the rest of this makeshift family.

And OH MY WOW what a cliffhanger.  I’m excited to see how Revolution ends this series.
