Well, that was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. It’s been a while since I’ve finished a book in a matter of hours but I simply had to know how this story ended. Fast-paced, action-packed. Filled with tests of loyalty, friendship, and love. You're constantly wondering what this world will throw at you next. The Cast Eve: the anti-heroine Looking back on my review for the first book, I mentioned I was ready to watch Eve's descent into darkness. I was not. I was not prepared. It also did not help that the journey was strange and disjointed. Simply put, it did not make sense to me much in Deviate, because while yes she had certainly been betrayed by some it made no sense to me why she would throw away her entire past. She might not have lived Ana's life, but she had lived as Evie. Those memories were hers. That life was hers, however, flawed and riddled with secrets it was. Anyways, it helped in this installment that we actually got to see her struggle with who she was, the decisions and mistakes she's made. Witnessed her try to figure out who she was outside of the shadow of the girl she was made to be. Zeke: the lost hero Once again, his life is a mess. He continues to be torn apart by his feelings because although he understands Ana is dead, he cannot seem to let her go. And again we get drilled over the head with the fact that she was his first blah blah. Okay, moving on. Zeke was sometimes just too kind, too trusting. He truly believes most of the people in his life are not beyond redemption. No matter who many times he gets disappointed or betrayed he keeps on fighting, poor guy never caught a break. Lemon: the sidekick/turned heroine Because a girl who'd grown up rough and filthy as Lemon Fresh wasn't the kind of damsel to sit up in a tower waiting for some handsome prince to rescue her. Grimm: the boy who stopped a nuke Heroic at heart, Grimm fights for what he believes is right. He fights for humanity. Even going as far as to risk his life to save the very same people who tried to crucify him for being different. Diesel: the queen of portals She is a sassy bitch, with a smart mouth. But all in all, she is loyal, level-headed and smart. Cricket: the once little robot now with a body as big as his opinions "Love is caring about someone else more than you care about yourself," Cricket said. "It's feeling better when they're around, and worse when they're away. It's wanting the best for them, no matter what." The Relationships Eve & Zeke "What you were made to be doesn't matter. The things you do become the person you are." He shrugged, as if asking the most obvious question in the world. "So who do you want to be?" --- That this boy hadn't trusted her, hadn't believed in her, hadn't loved her for who she'd been, but who she was. And who was she? In the end? She was a girl who loved him back. Eve slipped her arms around Zeke's waist. This boy who'd always felt so real in her arms. And she kissed him, kissed him for all he'd done, and all he was, and all she'd known he'd be. Kissed him like she were a queen, and he her king, there in that empire of scrap, rusting under a cigarette sky. These two were a roller-coaster of emotion and confusion. It wasn’t just that I wasn’t sure how they felt about each other, a lot times it felt like they weren’t sure either. So much back and forth. Don’t get me wrong I was rooting for when from the start. But with a giant elephant in the room, being Ana and the endless betrayal, I did not think it was going to happen. So color me surprised in the end. Lemon & Grimm Grimm had kissed her like she's never been kissed before. He'd kissed her like he really, truly meant it. --- He looked at her sidelong. "You got this, love," he said. "And you got me. To the end." She smiled at him. Squeezed his hand. "Not the end," she said. "Not today." These two gave me serious first love vibes, because they're just to pure and sweet. They definitely reached ride or die levels very fast. Eve & Lemon It was believable and solid that the end of this, it was these two who stood together against everything. It made sense they would stand by each other in the end. Because they've been by each other side for so long. They're best friends. They are family, until the bitter end. Cricket & Lemon Our little robot loved and fought for Lemon with all he had, and you can argue he never had a heart. But I would argue right back that his love and loyalty could never have been programed. This was a book that made me consider a lot of things. What it means to be human. How hard it is to fight for a better future for everyone when it would far easier to just accept things as they are, to only look out for yourself. The world was not wholly fixed, everything was not all roses and happy endings. But it was hopeful. As if, no matter how far we fall it is never too late to get back up and try again. I received a free ARC copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Knopf Books for Young Readers and Public Random House approving my request.

"You built a world on metal backs," she said. "Held together by metal hands. And one day soon, those hands will close. And they'll become fists." TRUEL1F3 takes the reader on a roller coaster and brings the Lifelike trilogy to a bittersweet ending. The dread that I feel at the end of a series is too real. I dread that a favorite character is going to die, I dread that the bad guy is going to win (although, my love of complex stories also believes this to be a great twist), I dread that a million and one things are going to go wrong. But, I push through it, read faster than I ever have towards the end of the novel so that I can just rip the band aid off, and come out at the end usually feeling a little worse for wear, but mostly intact. Save for my emotions. My emotions always take a hit or two if I'm this invested. All and any reservations that I felt about Eve's dark twist into hatred and vengeance in DEV1AT3 and the end of LIFEL1K3 were erased in TRUEL1F3. Thank you, Mister Kristoff, from the bottom of my bruised heart for giving Eve such a big part in this installment. I'm not going to say that I forgive her for everything she's done, or that I “like” her. I was rather fond of Eve when all of this started, but along the way she lost her charm and I still can't quite forgive or trust her. But given what she is put through, given how torturous she's treated and how justified her negative belief in humans has turned, and given the fact that you can see that she wants to change-- Yeah, I give her a break. She did good here, she has a chance, and the pull that I'd hoped Lemon would have on her came to pass. That bestest that let her down in LIFEL1K3 brought her back to herself, and it was a lovely moment to see. I always like to touch on my favorite characters, those that stand out the most, because they make the story for me. Lemon Fresh, from the start, has been a star. This young girl shone in this third book, and she brought me most of the feels that I had along the way. I lost count of the times that she was struck down, either literally or metaphorically, but she got back up every single time. She kept fighting for what she believed in, for her friends, she never gave up. Lemon is the little spark of hope that can barely be seen waiting at the end, and she dragged herself to it by tooth and nail. Her spark, alongside Cricket's amazing little logika affection (I know, I know, “Don't call me little”) made me sit on the edge of my seat and hold on for dear life every time that they dove into danger. And the danger strikes at these characters from all angles. It's something that one would think might make a novel drive forward at the speed of light from start to finish. But I found myself feeling the same thing that I felt in LIFEL1K3, where the beginning of the novel lacked something for me. There's a certain special touch of snowflake (you get that reference if you've read these books) that's missing almost until half of the book, and then it picks up fast and doesn't let you go 'til its fin. Just like in book one, this doesn't take much from the story's enjoyment, but it's enough to be noticeable. It's still merely a small point in the overall good of the plot, however. There's plenty to make TRUEL1F3 worth the read, especially if you've already enjoyed the first two books: great friendships, beautiful romances, badass fights, more than a few good punchlines. And at the center of it all is a hell of a showdown during the last few chapters between humanity and those not quite. A battle that brings enemies close, fighting against a common foe—it's a rush to see that moment pull up in the pages. The antagonists Gabriel and Faith... Eve joined their ranks, but these two have been the constants since the opening chapters, and the wrath that has driven them has been almost frightening. It's so easy to dislike them, but there's something about these lifelikes, just like there is with Ezekiel, that made me feel sorry for them. All they wanted was to be their own person, something that we all want. Something that we all get to have, elementally, as human beings. Their wants, and what drives them, never wavered until the very end at Faith's hand. They are horrible, they're wonderfully created in their perfect hostility, and I enjoyed them as much as I do every well-crafted adversary in a fictional tale. There are times when you really do almost hope that the bad ones win something out of it. And if you wonder “Did the good guys win? Did a favorite character die after all?” Well, let's just say that good and bad things happened, and this reader is still recovering from some of those moments. This was a great ride.

I was lucky to get an ARC of that story but it has no influence on my review.   That book was brilliful! What’s that word? It’s a word for something both beautiful and brilliant.   “First rule of the Scrap:  Stronger together. Together forever.”   Long review ahead #sorrynotsorry ! First, we begin with a helluva opening scene that will set the tone and the pace for the whole book!   There are some deep topics here! Like : what makes us human? Biomaas chose the path of no free will everyone honed to be the best of his kind. Similar. Daedalus thinks the best is to have every mechanics under control. Ne free will for robots and humans above all else. Just another form of slavery from Biomaas as both live by  control and order. The other life form like the deviate is chaos. More alive and more humans than what these companies want humans to be. So I’d say that what makes us human come down to free will. “But in trying to make everything fit in these neat little boxes with these oh-so-helpful labels, you’re taking away the stuff that makes us special! To you people, what you are is more important than who you are!”   And who are you? What makes you you? Who do you want to be? What defines a person? That’s when Jay went Dumbledoresk on us with quotes like “You’re not defined by what you are, Eve. You’re defined by what you do.”   Also what makes a family? The blood you share? The people who have your back no matter what? This book is also full of second chances: at love, at friendship, at living on this planet.     Now let’s talk about some of the characters! From the end of book one I wanted Fresh to be something other than somebody’s sidekick! Lifl1k3 focused on Eve as main female character but Miss Fresh had already hijacked my heart and I wanted her to have the floor! Well in Dev1at3 and certainly now in Truel1f3 my wish has been granted! Freckles will have to up her game and true cert, she’ll be fizzy doing it! “Truth was, part of her still felt like that snot-nosed, punk kid who’d set out as the tagalong in someone else’s story. The sass on tap. The comedy relief. She wondered who she was to be standing up in a fight like this. To be counting on others to do the same. Despite her speech in the silo, she didn’t feel like any sort of leader.”   Cricket had clearly been inspired by Jiminy Cricket in Pinocchio. He was Eve’s conscience in a way. He began this series as a wee thing and ended up as a giant robot. Hit outer growth only mirroring his inner growth. Because one thing that I loved in this series was the personal growth and journey all main characters went on, Cricket included! Yes, that’s right: a robot had his own evolution! And as in real life, some characters had a rocky growth, often erring on the dark side for some time and Jay made it so convincing that I never knew if one day, some of them would see the light again!   Let’s talk about my boy Ezekiel now or Dimples. He was worthy of all my admiration through all these books! Mind you, he will fight to prevent Gabriel to make more of his kind, knowing that he and his remaining brother and sisters are the only left of their kind. All that because he realized how wrong they were for human kind! He knows who he wants to be and that’s someone who has hope, no matter what and who will believe in other’s goodness. He has an ingrained sense of right and wrong and will do everything, even make hard choices, to do what’s right. Deeply loyal, love and friendship are things he believes in wholeheartedly. And of course, being pleasing on the eye is an extra bonus right? “He said nothing. Just looked into her eyes. Seeing her hurt like this, seeing her pain, he couldn’t help but feel a stab of pity. He and Faith were still family, despite everything, and that still counted for something. That was just who he was. Who he’d decided to be.”     But the characters and topics are not the only things that make this series stand out! What I also adored and that’s something Jay excels at was all the inner lingo and “Lifl1k3” language this book offers! Expression like “Fizzy”, “True cert” fill the book, giving it its own special flavor! One of my favorite expression, derived from our common ones: “Can’t make a mint julep without crushin’ some ice.” Or another one “She realized how deep in the fertilizer she actually was.” I love when authors invent nearly a new language in their books! Something that makes us feel that we are in that universe they imagined for their heroes. It’s like a personal seal. The series brand, more than the author’s brand!     Last but not least, I got all the FEELS ! Jay made me cry with what’s been done to Lemon, with what happened to Ezekiel that resurfaced the little lost boy. But he also made me shed tears for happy reasons as some scene of reunion between friends, machine and human were packed with so much tenderness that my eyes just teared up. Mister Kristoff also surprised me with plot Twists! Some betrayals I never had seen coming! He also made me rage, often. Fear the worst for our heroes! This book is filled with guns blazing heart pounding escapes. With loss and grief. Full of battles, dangers and turning points, so much that I was sitting at the edge of my seat thinking “Don't make Grimm die Jay” or “Don’t make Fresh die!” or “If you destroy Zeke, I will hunt you to the end of the earth Jay”. Because guys you know Hell hath no fury like a reader scorned!   #sponsored #partner @PRHGlobal/@prhinternational   Have you read this series already?   Thanks for reading   Sophie   Find me on: Wordpress: Beware Of The Reader Facebook: Beware Of The Reader Facebook group : Beware Book Boyfriends Alert Instagram: @bewareofthereader Twitter: @BewareOffReader

It's been a few days since I've read TRUEL1F3 and I've spent this time thinking about this novel and how this series ended. Initially I loved it and was content, but the more I thought about it the more and more that I realized that it was kind of rushed and though it wrapped up well, I feel like it could have been better. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate TRUEL1F3. I think fans of this series are going to enjoy it and love it as much as the other novels in this series. After the quite explosive conclusion to DEV1AT3 we learn all sorts of things and in TRUEL1F3 we learn the cost of the decisions. Eve and Gabriel have been captured by the mega corporation Daedalus, one of the two corporations that are trying to gain control of what is left of the US. Lemonfresh has willingly gone with Hunter to City Hive to learn why she is deemed "important" to them. Abraham, Cricket, Solomon, Ezekiel, Grimm and Diesel barley escaped Bethlehem after a missile from the military bunker that houses Grimm and Diesel's rebellion was headed straight towards them. Let's just say that a lot had happened and it's not all good. My biggest issue with this book is that I feel like Eve isn't given enough on page time in this story to continue to understand her motivations and the thoughts throughout it. She has more page time in this novel then she did in DEV1AT3 but it isn't enough. There are drastic decisions made that I felt blind sided by, which I guess it the point of being shocked. But this revelations were very oddly placed or very random. I liked seeing her struggle with trying to find who she is. Is she Eve or is she Ana? Who she is suppose to be and her role in the grand scheme of things. But other then that I am a little dissapointed in this aspect of the story. I feel like there is two stories going on at once since it change point of views so frequently. We have a showdown between Daedalus and BioMaas in Lemonfresh and Ezekiel's point of view and then we have Eve's point of view where they are trying to escape Daedalus and return to Gnosis to finish what they started. To me, it felt like there was so much going on at once and it was hard to keep track at times. Ezekiel's character has left me conflicted, I've seen so much growth from him through out the series and I am happy to see that but I feel like with how the story wrapped up and everything that unfolded he still only cared about one thing: Ana. Its complicated to talk about this further with out spoiling anything so I am going to leave it at that. Overall I did expect a lot more from TRUEL1F3. I feel like some parts that were rushed and not explained fully. But with that being said, I did enjoy TRUEL1F3 and I am glad I got to read the conclusion. I want people to take my review with a grain of salt though, you might not find to have problems with this issues that I did and might think that this is the best one in the series. I don't want my review to deter anyone from not finishing this series. So read it and learn how this story ends for these characters.

    I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. TRUEL1F3 was an okay-ish book. I was honestly really excited to dive into this but the ending just felt like such a cop out. I mean, I went through an emotional ride of liking and disliking Eve throughout the entire book. Yes, she made some pretty awful and dumb decisions but I could see that she was upset and hurt as well. Yet, towards the end she just easily switched sides and everyone was like - YAY!

Of course she was trying to do something nice towards the end so maybe that's her only redeeming factor? Besides not being the biggest fan of Eve this time around, there's Ezekiel. Yikes, his character was confusing as well. He's with Eve (sort of) but really only cares about Ana. Which definitely leaves to a super bittersweet moment but then the ending kind of gives me hope again? Other than that, the beginning kind of hurt my head. It was just chaotic with all the switching of POV's and I was just trying to follow the story the best way I could. Definitely had to take some small breaks just to think things through and understand it all. In the end, I just kind of wanted a different ending.

    My Rating: 4.5 Stars I'll be honest, when this beautiful ARC showed up on my kindle, I was more than a little hesitant to read it. After the way DEV1AT3 ended, I was genuinely terrified of this final book in a series I adore. We all know that Jay Kristoff is more than a tiny bit evil (see: Godsgrave), so I was worried about the path this series would take. After the events of book two, I didn't see how Kristoff could wrap up the series without making me sob my damn eyes out.  I am happy to report, My Rating: 4.5 Stars I'll be honest, when this beautiful ARC showed up on my kindle, I was more than a little hesitant to read it.

After the events of book two, I didn't see how Kristoff could wrap up the series without making me sob my damn eyes out.  I am happy to report, that I was able to finish TRUEL1F3 with minimal tears and more than a little laughter. This book was intense as hell and kept butterflies in my stomach from page one on. Somehow, with everything happening, Kristoff managed to tie up all of the loose ends of the series while making what I consider to be a pretty poignant statement about global warming and the importance of environmental protection.  I don't want to spoil the book (writing reviews for book three in a series is SO HARD) so I won't say much else. The only small thing that bothered me was the ending. The climax of the book was so intense that I was a touch let down by the overall easy wrap up. I honestly could've done with another chunk of epilogue, but maybe that's me being greedy. I also hated that a character I didn't love got a happy ending, while a character that I adored did not. That feels like more of a matter of personal preference than anything though. If you read my reviews of this series, you'll know that LIFEL1K3 was a little rough for me as I had a difficult time connecting with Eve. For me, the series didn't really hit it's stride until book two when it became clear that LemonFresh would be the main focus of the books. Her values and overall focus on friendship made her an easy to love character, while Eve remained someone I didn't really like even through the end of TRUEL1F3.

    I was nervous going in, because Kristoff can be unmerciful. Again the tale is delivered from multiple POVs, but Spencer’s narration and unique voices made the switches seamless. I love that even the side characters become important and that the dynamics change as characters grow, face consequence and evolve. Both Eva and Lemon struggle with their relationship, identity and the battle occurring. We see relationships develop, face betrayals and witness unwavering loyalty. The action increased the fu I was nervous going in, because Kristoff can be unmerciful. Again the tale is delivered from multiple POVs, but Spencer’s narration and unique voices made the switches seamless. I love that even the side characters become important and that the dynamics change as characters grow, face consequence and evolve. Both Eva and Lemon struggle with their relationship, identity and the battle occurring. We see relationships develop, face betrayals and witness unwavering loyalty. The action increased the further we travel into TRUEL1F3 and sometimes it was intense with twists I never saw coming. Through it all we see character grow as they question and we bear witness to unwavering loyalty. The world-building for this trilogy has been brilliant, and in each book Kristoff expands the reader’s understanding and perspective. I loved that U became fully vested. I cheered, laughed and truly felt for these characters. I got angry for them, sided with a few and wanted to kick dirt at others! Kristoff raises social questions and tackles slavery from an AI perspective, which I found fascinating. Through his characters he shows everything isn’t always black and white. That sometimes even the villain is a hero. I loved the characters. This motley crew of humans, lifelikes and deviants grew on me. Even when I hated their actions, the author made me understand their emotions. Erin Spencer was the perfect narration choice. From each character’s voice to their emotions and experiences, the audio took the story to the next level. The Lifelike trilogy wrapped up nicely, leaving me smiling despite everything.

    These books have been so much fun to read! I love the world building and I wish I could know the characters in real life. I'm sad it's over, but I'm also happy to see how it all ends. Lemon Fresh is by far my favorite character and she plays a big role in this book. She's so strong and fierce, but also vulnerable and just wants someone to love her back. Her character development has been awesome and I enjoyed seeing her come into her own. On the other hand, Eve just got worse as a character and These books have been so much fun to read!

I just couldn't understand her rage at humanity and how she could flip on her friends like that. I wish she had more redemption and her ending didn't feel realistic to me. The plot moves quickly and I loved all the action parts and bits of humor infused. Grimm especially cracked me up with his odd sayings "I'm Robin Hood" haha. Abraham is a cutie and I'm glad we saw more of him standing up for himself. A couple parts were pretty sad and one in particular felt glossed over. I think it deserved a more attention and bummed me out. A good ending for a great series, I was totally engrossed in this and it flew by. I can't wait for it to be released to the world!

    Spank my spankables I can't believe this is over. What a KILLER ending! Writing this review is going to be so hard, so that I don't spoil anything from the first two books, or this masterpiece, but, ugh, I just can't handle how much I loved this. The plot flowed nicely, I felt the struggle the characters were going through, I laughed, I cried all kinds of tears, and read the last page like 10 times. I do wish the last chapter had some more to it, or maybe an epilogue, but I'm nit picking. Well do Spank my spankables I can't believe this is over. What a KILLER ending!

To be honest, at this point I didn't care a bit where Eve was or what she was going through. All I cared about was Lemon and if she'd survive. And in a surprise twist, I finally realized this series was really Lemon's story, not Eve's and I couldn't have been happier. Kristoff tends to give us heroes and heroines who we absolutely adore. With that said, I want Lemon as my own bestie! And I want my own squad of Grimm, Diesel, Crickett, Zeke, and Abraham! The squad separates to try to save both Lemon and Eve, and in the midst of non-stop action that follows, we even get a few kissing scenes. The gang then pulls out all the stops to prevent insane Gabriel from wiping out the human race and populating what's left of the world with Lifelikes and robots. Even more action ensues culminating in the final battle. Yes, there are tears. It wouldn't be a Kristoff book without them after all, but I can honestly say that I was very satisfied with the ending. *Thank you to NetGalley and Knopf Books for the advance copy!*

It was such a wonderful balance of action, heartbreak, romance and more! I didn’t think Jay could add more twists to the story, but he true cert left some for this one! I will say there is a particular thing that happened that will could definitely be a trigger to some so if you are curious I will glady tell you, but other wise my lips are sealed. Theres so many things I just want to talk about, but I don’t like spoiling the book so expect a big discussion once this baby in your hands! Don’t forget to preorder this baby to help support our wonderful authors!

This book was so good up until it’s last breath when tying up loose ends felt more like a harsh slap to the face. The entirety of this series and more importantly this book gave the characters so many chances to re-evaluate what they were doing and offered choices and yes I get the struggle but when you have some of the repeatedly beating the shit out of those they have decided they no longer care about and they wear out fourth, fifth and sixth chances to do what’s right I don’t have any sympathy for them nor do I believe they deserved the ending they received, history or not all of these characters have been battered and bruised and to just shrug it off with a crown on their head is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. Again if you’re going to play up redemption give it to us in beats give me that struggle of loyalty and betrayal and let me see it play out in their hesitations or their willingness to follow but for the love of god don’t give me a single line and expect me to feel anything but anger and frustration to the point that I never wish to think of this series again. Wow what a way to burn a series with a book that would have easily been a 5 star read if not for those last few pages. **special thanks to the publishers and netgalley for providing an arc in exchange for a fair and honest review**

    5/5 Stars Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the early e-galley! Absolutely Brilliful. This book was just as beautiful and brilliant as Ms Fresh. This story over the trilogy had so many twists and turns that caught me totally off guard. Our main characters separate and converge, rinse and repeat. Side characters become more important, main characters become less important. Important characters die. I was honestly expecting more characters to die though so that was definitely a surprise.

    TRUEL1F3 was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and it did not disappoint! After the heart stopping cliff hanger in DEV1AT3, I anxiously waited an entire year to feel closure and I truly felt we got it. There are some things I wish that were expanded on but it left it in a way that if he ever wanted to write more, there would be meat left for that to happen. As far as I know this is a trilogy only, though! I loved the multiple points of view, I loved Lemon Fresh and her character ARC.

As far as I know this is a trilogy only, though! I loved the multiple points of view, I loved Lemon Fresh and her character ARC. Honestly when I started LIFEL1K3 I thought Eve would be the star but Lemon emerged from the scrap and stole my heart. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil anything! Once the series is out and people have had time to read it, I will expand more on my thoughts about this book and the characters. The love, the betrayals, the romance… I loved (and hated LOL) it all! Just know that this book was an excellent conclusion to the series. It had action, adventure, so much laughter, heart warming moments… it does have a few triggering moments so if you are sensitive to some triggers please let me know and I can tell you so you can prepare. They aren’t graphic but it does add a layer of sensitivity to the issue. Just like DEV1AT3 I have a hard time conceptualizing the time frame in which all of this takes place.. a matter of days.. a matter of weeks. It’s so hard for me to imagine Eve and her story ARC coming full circle in this time but again, it ramped up the intensity! True Cert, this book was just what I needed to get out of my slump! I enjoyed seeing the direction the characters went! Jay Kristoff is a forever favorite author of mine. Thank you so much for allowing me to read an advanced copy and for leaving this burning hole in my chest. This book goes on Sale 6/30/20 and is up for PREORDER now!

I’d like to thank Netgalley for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. To sum up: This is the third and final book in the LifeL1k3 series by Jay Kristoff. To avoid spoilers, I’m going to talk more about how I feel about this series as a whole, and what I think it did really well. This series is set in a dystopian near-future after a third world war and a major earthquake that separates part of California from the rest of the country. This world run by two major corporations at war with one another and our characters are tossed in the middle of this war. Our main characters consist of a combination of humans, Deviates (humans with extraordinary abilities, think X-men), logika (independent machines with intelligence and personalities), and LifeLikes, which are machines/robots that appear just like human beings but with extraordinary strength and healing abilities. The machines in this world are bound by three laws of robotics which are as follows: 1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the first or second law. The main driving force of this trilogy comes from some of the robotic/lifelike characters pursuing freedom from these laws, and are willing to kill anyone (especially the humans that created, and in their minds, enslaved them) in pursuit of this freedom. While the laws were put into place to prevent an AI uprising endangering humans, it also prevents robots from having free will and choice, that they feel they deserve. Therefore, a big part of this series delves into a discussion about free will and technology, how this topic ultimately causes a rift between friends and allies, and what the characters are willing to sacrifice in pursuit of their ideals. What I loved: What I loved most about this trilogy, is the major theme of resistance and change throughout and in each character. Like many futuristic dystopian stories, there is a theme of REVOLUTION and RESISTANCE, but I think that it’s particularly cool that we get to see this resistance from the robot’s point of view. In most robots vs humans stories, it is all too easy to choose the side of humans, but this trilogy really strives to give equal time to both sides, which can make some of the choices made really heartbreaking and intense. Every character’s motivations are really clear and aren’t exactly painted black or white. The line between good and evil, villain and hero, is often hard to draw. There is such a fantastic arc of development and change in each major character to this series so that most of them are by one character or another, seen as both a hero and a villain. As a writer myself, I really admired this level of complexity to the characters, it was a really cool way to demonstrate that every revolution has more than one side, and every “villain” has their reasons (whether or not we agree with them). I also loved the friendships in this trilogy. A lot of YA focuses on romance, and don’t get me wrong, there is excellent romance in this series as well, but I think this trilogy is more about friendships and the lengths we will go to preserve those friendships. There are friendships between humans, human and deviate, deviate and machine, and all of them are done with beautiful depth and sincerity. My favorite for sure is the friendship between Cricket (a logika) and LemonFresh. There was MORE THAN ONE moment in this book where their relationship made me tear up, it’s so beautiful! I also have to mention the WORLDBUILDING. Like many of Jay Kristoff’s books, he immerses the reader in a concrete and well-thought-out world containing relevant history, slang, religion, topography, technology obviously, and politics. The way slang and curses are used is a particular strength of his, and this book is no exception. I may not have wanted to live in this world while I was reading it, but it was easy to feel completely immersed in this world due to the level of detail we are given about the world. What was meh: Honestly, I can think of very few things! The ramping up action and tension were great, the development and world-building were great, the themes were interesting, I just felt there was a little something missing that I can’t quite put my finger on. When I set the book down I wasn’t dying to know what would happen next (which I felt like while reading LifeL1k3 and Aurora Rising). Since that is pretty vague and unhelpful as a critique I’m only knocking of half a star and I’ll have to update this review if I think of more to add! Overall, I highly recommend this trilogy, and this book in particular if you’ve enjoyed the first two books! It’s a great finale to the trilogy, jam-packed with action, drama, feels, and of course all the sass, plot twists, and betrayal we have all come to expect from a Jay Kristoff book! Who I'd recommend it to: Fans of the LifeL1k3 series so far, Illuminae, Aurora Rising, X-Men, The Runaways, The Hunger Games, and Stranger Things.

Truelife was the conclusion to a sci-fi trilogy by one of my favorite authors of all time, so I was very inclined to like it. And I did! I think the world building of this series is phenomenal. The world has been broken by humans through war and radiation, and out of the ashes loom several companies that function as rulers. One that creates machines, one that creates bioengineered life, and one that has fallen extinct after the death of its creator at the hands of his creations. The actual plot of the series is not that large in view, however. It’s about two girls, a robotic human replica known as a “lifelike”, and trying not to get killed in a world where almost everything wants to kill you. Below the surface, the books also deal with themes of family, trust, and identity as well as the question: what is it to be human? This book, Truelife, widens the lens from the previous two. It has quite a few more point of view characters than the others, which I really enjoyed, and focuses more on the state of the world rather than the state of a certain person or people. We also got to see inside the corporations and learn how they work, rather than only getting the outsider perspective. The various final showdowns (no spoilers!) were epic and as believable as possible given the fact that it’s a dystopian novel. The characters were memorable and distinct, with vivid personalities and narrative voices. I liked getting a glimpse into the heads of more of them in Truelife. Particularly Faith, who goes from antagonist to narrator as the series progresses, and whose motivations prove to be increasingly complex. The ending was surprisingly happy and had more of a bow on it than I was expecting. I’m not a fan of illogically happy endings for the sake of making the reader feel good, but in the case I thought it (mostly) worked. Plus, I’ll admit it was nice to read a hopeful ending to a grim story.

And here I was, at home in bed, reading sentences like, "You built a world on metal backs. Held together by metal hands. And one day soon, those hands will close. And they'll become fists." I saw the revolution of the logika and lifelike through different eyes this time around. I was definitely more sympathetic to their plight than I was when reading Deviate. Like yes, you want to kill all humans, but the humans treated you badly, maybe they deserve it. In Truelife, everyone is gearing up for a fight. The ending of Deviate was a massive cliffhanger with a bomb heading straight towards Ezekiel, Cricket, Abraham, Grimm, and Diesel. Eve, Gabriel, and the newfound Ana were taken prisoner by Daedalus Technologies and BioMaas took Lemon back to CityHive to figure out how to replicate her powers. Chapter One picks up right where Deviate left off. So, I guess it's not much of a spoiler to say that the people of New Bethlehem survive and our main characters much go off in search of their kidnapped friends. Some go to rescue Lemon. Some go to rescue Eve. And all are trying to figure out how the heck the fate of the world is left on their shoulders. Tensions are rising. And all of the characters must band together to prevent world-wide destruction on multiple fronts. BioMaas wants to kill the citizens of Megapolis and replace them with their hivemind. The Lifelikes want to start a robot rebellion and eradicate humanity. Which means our heroes are left siding with the least worse option- Daedalus Technologies. Truelife serves as a wonderful conclusion to the series, wrapping up each characters' story line and leaving the reader with some hope for their future. Yes, there is death and loss. It wouldn't be a Jay Kristoff book without it. But the reunions I've been longing for since the end of Lifelike do happen (though my heart got stabbed everytime). 4.5 stars. Deviate is my favorite book in the series, but this was very close behind. I am sad to leave this world behind, but satisfied with the ending.

The thing I liked and disliked more, at the same time, was Eve. I think she's the most interesting character of the books, I just adored her journey, how she tries to find her identity and how she struggles with certain choices. The problem is that since book 2 we didn't see much of her, I adore Lemon but I would have preferred more space for her best friend. This leads to the ending, it felt a little bit rushed, in Eve's final decision but also in the final battles. There was all this big construction but I had the impression everything was so fast. I was not deluded at all, the book was addicting and I finished it in 2 days but without these tiny errors, the ending would have been a lot better!

I enjoyed this book tremendously, the voice and Kristoff Slang™, and cheered on the redemption arcs (and deserved endings) to those who needed them. Those looking for queer characters and representation, I'm afraid this isn't the trilogy you're looking for. But for those looking for a romantic adventure with characters who scream off the page, now is the time to read this trilogy. Speaking of characters, Lemon Fresh stole the show for me, demonstrating that being different doesn’t mean you don’t belong. Themes of identity, friendship, family, and love all come together under the radiation sky in this fast-paced, action-filled science fiction adventure. Huge thanks for the publisher for providing an eARC of this book!
