Publisher Description

They called her Water Claire. When she washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions and colors didn’t exist. That she had become a Vessel at age thirteen. That she had carried a Product at age fourteen. That it had been stolen from her body. Claire had a son. But what became of him she never knew. What was his name? Was he even alive? She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. Now Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice.

Son thrusts readers once again into the chilling world of the Newbery Medal winning book, The Giver, as well as Gathering Blue and Messenger where a new hero emerges. In this thrilling series finale, the startling and long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry’s epic tale culminates in a final clash between good and evil.

Satifying conclusion to a series

While more predictable and less ambiguous (in a good thinking way) the final book of the series started in _The Giver_ was a satisfying read bringing all the players from the previous books together.

A Beautiful Ending to this beautiful boom series


Seeing Son tie all three previous books together, while adding even more to the series was so amazing. To see what happened to everyone in the end, and to see the way Gabriel defeated Trademaster and saved Claire was amazing. The series ending beautifully, and I can’t think of a better ending for it.

What a terrible way to end the series

This book is a disappointment. It feels almost as Lowry was rushing to write this. So much detail and effort was spent on ridiculous areas of the book, yet when details and excited was really needed it lacked. What a terrible way to end such an incredible series.
