The Pursuit

About the book: Let the chase begin . . . 

Six years ago, with the financial collapse of her country and the death of her parents, Carrie Ashworth swore to protect her siblings. She has fought to build a life for them in her illegal clan. Now home and recovering from a government-spread virus, she's ready to pursue a little happiness of her own. With Greg.

Greg Pierce has no plan to join the growing rebellion or their "Live free or die" mentality. Even after compulsory military service deepened his hatred of President Rigsby's regime, he wants nothing more than to leave it all behind and start a quiet life with Carrie in Logan Pond. But when word reaches them that Oliver, their patrolman friend and protector, is missing, Carrie and Greg are thrown into a race for survival. Chief Jamansky has discovered Oliver's little secret and now he wants revenge, forcing their clan to consider abandoning Logan Pond forever.

In this battle for siblings and friends, for homes lost and freedoms stolen, the citizens must ask: How far would you go to pursue happiness?

The stakes are pushed to their boundaries in this highly anticipated final book in Rebecca Belliston's Citizens of Logan Pond trilogy, bringing her epic love story to an unforgettable end.

My review: I was looking forward to the conclusion of this series, because Liberty left me really hanging and I wanted to know just what happened to all of these characters I had grown to love.

I like Carrie, I love the way that she is so naive and really still expects the best of really everyone and everything around her. But at the same time, her naivety, gets her into trouble in the world that she lives in. I love the way that she goes through many hard things and is really able to bounce back from her hard times and still be okay. I love the way she's really into gardening and wants to use that to unite all of the rebels in the area and trade for things that everyone needs and wants. 

I like that Greg is really an opposite to Carrie. He is less naive and really knows how the world they live in works and that's good, because he's seen lots of the way the world operates and he's able to get himself and really their whole family out of sticky situations all the time.

Carrie's siblings are pretty prominent in this one, and I love the way that they think and that they are able to care for themselves and bounce back from their difficulties as well. 

For me, this book did not disappoint! It was full of surprises and the whole thing left me hanging plot wise until the very end. I was happy with how everything turned out, it really was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
