The story continues of the main characters who have managed to survive thus far. Cam, the rewind, is still on the scene. The characters who have been separated don’t know where the others are or even if they are still alive. There is a lot of hiding, running, danger, and sometimes help at every corner. We find sympathizers to Unwinds in some of the strangest places However, the attitude is generally that Unwinds aren’t welcome anywhere for very long because giving them sanctuary, especially these characters, will get you killed.
Some very interesting developments occur with Cam. I don’t want to spoil this for people who haven’t read it but if anyone would like to have a philosophical discussion on what happens to him please inbox me! Suffice it say that again this book is thought provoking on matters of humanity that we for granted everyday.
That right there is what I love so much about this series. The first two books were set up really well. We know all about Unwinding and the people who are for and against it and why. We understand the reason why it was established in the first place. We now know the characters very well.
This book to me took more of the focus off the actual of issue of unwinding itself and was more about all the emotions involved. We got to see the characters at their most vulnerable points. I was glad to see that even the most beloved characters had a weakness but throughout the whole journey they have been able to overcome their weaknesses. I was also shocked to see the attitudes of those who profit off the unwinding business, whether it is the government, independent organizations, or parts pirates.
