Unsouled (2013)

Unsouled. Neal Shusterman. 2013. Simon & Schuster. 416 pages. [Source: Library]

Unsouled is just as intense and compelling as Unwind and Unwholly. While I don't usually like books told through multiple narrators, in the case of this series, it completely works. Readers still get to spend plenty of time with previous characters (Connor, Lev, Risa, etc.) but the story is always progressing forward. New characters are always being introduced. One of the points of Unsouled seems to be that there are more than two sides. That there isn't a clear-cut "good side" and "bad side" of the coming "war" or conflict. There are at least three sides. All three sides are shown in Unsouled. The world is still complex and full of mystery. More is revealed about the past, about the science behind the unwinding and its original purpose. Unsouled is a very good read!
