Retribution (The Outliers Saga, Book 3) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Grace Sylvan

Retribution (The Outliers Saga, Book 3) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Grace Sylvan is my favorite post-apocalyptic/dystopian series of the year! Despite the darker themes, there is an empowering feel to these books. Recommend you stop what you're doing and start listening to this series asap!


Where to purchase:
Indiebound

Retribution (The Outliers Saga, Book 3) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Grace Sylvan is a phenomenal final book! Highly recommend if you are looking for a new post-apocalyptic/dystopian novel, are new to Kate’s books, or looking for an incredible darker yet empowering series.

The final book in The Outliers Saga begins where previous events left off. Asa is caught trying to open the gates, Indra is recovering from an assassination attempt. Lesander, Emori, Saffron, Nyko, Ontari, Roan, Zuri, and everyone else (plus some) are back. We learn of Indra’s parents, learn more about the untouchables, and get closure. That’s all I’m saying due to spoilers, but you won’t be disappointed.

The book is told through Asa and Indra’s point of views. This being the final book in the series leaves me feeling bittersweet- I can’t help but want more. You could listen to this on it’s own, but I wouldn’t recommend it as you will miss key elements from the first two books.

The narrator, Grace Sylvan, did a wonderful job yet again. If you are new to this series, I liken her accent for the series to a style reminiscent of Cloud Atlas.

Favorite lines from the book: 
“Everyone has a heart, but not everyone understands it’s an asset.” “Weakness, my friend, is never an asset.” 

Overall, I highly recommend. I put The Outliers Saga as my favorite post-apocalyptic/dystopian series of the year. If you haven’t tried Kate’s books, it’s time to do so.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: This series contains darker themes, such as abuse (physical, mental, sexual), rape (remembering of past traumas/indication rape occurred), death, violence, and like elements.
