I think I'm running out of worlds to use for this series. Epic once again comes to mind. This is an awesome ending. There's growing love between Dred and Jael, crazy Silence, mutated rats, machines malfunctioning causing sickness, and yes, someone gets their tongue cut out. (That part was gross but well written). This isn't your typical sci fi romance. There's dark, gritty action with each tender kiss. We get to know the background of Silence and just how she ended up so nutty. And that ending was literally explosive.
I can't even pick a favorite book in the series, they're all fantastic. I think I'm having book withdrawal now that the series ended. This has to be made into a movie or series or something!
The Dred Chronicles is a sexy, dark sci fi that defines the word epic!
