Synopsis: One minute everything was fine and the next… they arrived. Those that saw them died instantly. The unlucky ones survived. Now unimaginable things straight out of nightmares roam the streets of our towns and cities. Nothing is impossible. Nowhere is safe. And no one can escape The Change… Loïc’s friend Adrien is gone, kidnapped by the Impressionists, bizarre men made of paint who roam the Parisian catacombs. Now, if Loïc wants to see Adrien again, he must travel to the Louvre and bring him back from the lair of the strange – and deadly – Impressionists. But the paint-men are not the only threat lurking in Paris, and Loïc must face down the needle-fingered Tricoteuse, the blade-mouthed Madame Loisette, and the dark secrets that haunt the footlights of the Grand Guignol…
What an ending to the trilogy! If you haven’t read this trilogy then I definitely recommend it!
One of my favourite things about this entire series is how the question ‘Where were you when it happened?’ stayed as a constant throughout the 3 books. This was particularly great because even though the books take place in countries around the world, it is something that ties them together, and it’s written so well.
The story of this book is probably my favourite out of the trilogy. From the start I loved the way it was told, from Loic’s perspective, and I loved how it was so informal and conversational. It put me right in the story, as if Loic had just got back from this journey and was telling me about it, and I loved it.
The style of writing within this book is so very Stephen King-esque that I just loved it! Stephen King has a way of writing hints within the story, that show something is going to happen before it happens, and Guy Adams does the same thing so well. I loved this aspect as it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time, and created such a perfect amount of suspense that I was hooked.
I love how the story was less about the monstrosities that were created from The Change, but in fact focused on how humans adapted to it, and what happened to them. It really completed all aspects of the story from the three books perfectly.
This book was a wonderful ending to a trilogy that kept me immersed, and hooked from the first page of the first book. The writing style of the book was genius and had a brilliant way of making horrible events seem happy, just to hook you even more.
From start to finish it leaves you gripped, and ends this excitingly horrifying trilogy in the best way. I can’t recommend it enough.
