Summer Ruins

Book 4, The Last Year - The Last Year, #4

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A final battle for the survival of Earth is coming.

Between the alien Others and the destruction of humanity stand four Dissidents.

When the Prime Other banishes them to the Harvest Site to live the remainder of their time on earth as slaves, the Dissidents use the opportunity to learn more about the substance that keeps the Others alive…and how they might use it to their advantage. But the Others guard their secrets well, and the Prime Other has proven his willingness to do whatever’s necessary to secure a future for his race, no matter what or who is destroyed in the process.

When Althea and the boys realize their lives could be the key to allowing another planet to suffer the same fate as earth, they promise they’ll die before they let that happen. If they can’t figure out how to turn the tables in their favor before the Summer Celebration, they might have to do just that.

The end draws near, and there’s only one question left—are the Dissidents going to save their chosen people or perish alongside them?

Customer Reviews

So sorry to end!

Loooooved this series! What a great ending to this series! So very sad to have to say goodbye to these characters! Loved them all!

Best series I've read in ages!

I got almost nothing done over the week I discovered this series. I just couldn't put them down. This one took me the longest to read because I just didn't want it to end. Truly a masterpiece.

Praise for The Last Year series

Excellent, imaginative series that will appeal to readers of the Divergent series. One minor quibble is improper use of object pronouns, but in general the series is better edited than most self-published e-books
