Description-

  • In the final installment of critically acclaimed Loop trilogy, all of humanity hinges on the greatest escape yet.

    All hope has seemingly been executed.

    Despite the fact that the truth of their oppressive leaders had been revealed to them, the crowd of Alts cheer as life drained from the boy.

    But one Alt, Chester "Chilly" Beckett, did not celebrate; his eyes have been opened to the truth. The corpse is dragged away, but Chester remains determined to find out what is going on in the Laboratory on the 65th floor.

    There, he'll find three subjects tortured in an attempt to extract a regeneration formula... and one of the subjects is, impossibly, a face he never thought he'd seen again. A bold escape sets in motion a race against time as Happy's plans to release planet-eating nano-bots into the world draw nearer. The Loop team must reassemble, survive Happy's final attempts to rid the world of the rebels, and figure out how to halt the apocalypse before humanity is destroyed.

    May 1, 2022
    In the final installment of the Loop trilogy, the ongoing mission to take down the world's operating system becomes a battle to save humanity. Ever unpredictable, Oliver opens this follow-up to The Block (2021) from the perspective of an Alt named Chester. The youngest member of the government's science team, which is housed in a protective Arc, Chester goes rogue after questioning the government's leader and discovering that Happy, the world's operating system, is planning to end humanity in nine days. Following a surprising connection with the Loop rebels, the story transitions back to the Loopers' ongoing fight to destroy Happy. With only days left to achieve this dangerous goal, the taut narration builds in intensity, with chapter headings serving as a countdown clock. The author continues with what he does best, weaving twists and turns, difficult decisions, adrenaline-fueled confrontations with Happy and its minions, and a touch of humor into a story filled with teamwork, friendship, hope, and love. This time, with the end of the world looming, the narrative becomes more existential as the characters consider what it means to be human. Issues of privilege, addiction, fear, and PTSD will resonate with today's post-pandemic readers. Equally rewarding is that this third book is not simply an extension of the overall story arc, but a culmination that ties it together with its predecessors. A thrilling, thought-provoking, and ultimately deeply satisfying series conclusion. (Dystopian. 14-18)
