By the glow of the instrument panel, I see my face reflected in the darkened window.
'My God,' she says. 'Who are you?'
It's what I've been asked before. I don't know the answer.
Danby is desperately fighting to save the last of humanity.
But with Jack's sinister influence more powerful than ever, Danby's one hope for freeing his minions - and her little brother - seems lost. The only option now for the few survivors not under Jack's control is escape at any cost.
Danby will also have to confront a danger much closer to home as she realises what she risks in the ferocious battle that looms. Embracing a brutal warrior code might save Danby's life, but the price is high.
In the explosive final act of the Last trilogy, Danby must save who she can, even if it means abandoning hope for her last remaining family. With soldiers, marauders and toxic bushfires closing in, she has no choice but to fight before she can take flight.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Ever since reading Last Girl, we’ve been obsessed with Australian author Michael Adams’ pitch-black dystopian series, a worthy heir to John Marsden’s Tomorrow, When the War Began. In the final act of Adam’s trilogy, his fierce young heroine, Danby, is struggling to maintain her humanity (and sanity) in the wake of the end-time horrors she’s witnessed. The Last Place plunges you straight into a nightmarish world where people’s minds have been co-opted by an evil force and terror lurks in familiar faces and settings. This scary, action-packed young adult novel is hard to shake.
