Peek Inside Collide

Military legacy Ari Alexander has survived alien spies, WWIV, and a changing world order. But now the people of Earth are dying, and only Ari can save them by turning them into alien half-breeds. If she succeeds, she and Jackson, the only boy she’s ever let herself care about, have a chance of preserving life for the future. If not, everyone she holds dear will be wiped away forever. If Ari and Jackson have any hope at survival, they must fight the final war with their eyes wide open.

Military legacy Ari Alexander has survived alien spies, WWIV, and a changing world order. But when the new leader of Earth uses Jackson—the only boy she’s ever let herself care about—to get to her, Ari has no choice but to surrender.

To free Jackson, she agrees to travel to the national bases to train others to fight. What she discovers is a land riddled with dying people. Ari has the power to heal by turning the fighters into aliens—half-breeds like her. If she succeeds, together, they have a chance at overthrowing the alien leader, Zeus. But if she fails, everyone she holds dear will be wiped away forever.

Once again, everything Ari’s come to believe is thrown into question. In a world of uncertainty, loyalties are tested, lies are uncovered, and no one can be trusted. If Ari and Jackson have any hope at survival and at preserving a life for the future, they must fight the final war with their eyes wide open.

With the way that Hover ended...I kinda need this book in my hands as soon as possible...
Oh! My thoughts on the cover...I picture two planets on it, and the color being some shade of green (Seems to fit the color scheme to me).

I'M SO EXCITED... ...more

Collide Review on K-Books

"I told you. I go where you go. I will never leave you."

There are no words to describe my excitement when Melissa sent me a early copy of Collide, the final installment of the breathtaking The Taking Series. I fell head over heels with this series, and Melissa, when Ent... ...more

A fantastic end to this series!

Collide is the third (and final…AHHH) book of The Taking trilogy by Melissa West and I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about having this in my possession. Mostly happy because now I know what has happened with Ari, Jackson, and the rest of the group…but also s... ...more

A thrilling conclusion to the series, Collide was a fantastic YA read. It had secrets, betrayals, and a final battle that didn't hold back. I thought it was a great way to end the Taking series.

Ari continued to grow stronger and smarter in this book. She went up against tyrants and refused to giv... ...more

Actual rating - 4.25

I liked Ari in the previous books, as she was a strong and brave character. She was exactly the same in this one.

I thought the second book in the series was lacking action, but this one had plenty. There wasn... ...more

What I Loved: Jackson. *drops mic and exits stage left*


But seriously, after that roundhouse kick in the feels that was the ending of HOVER--something I may never truly recover from---I NEEDED COLLIDE to have a heaping dose of kickassery with an extra helping of swoon. Melissa West... ...more

I received this free eARC in exchange for my honest review.

What an ending. For such a small finale, there was a lot of action and information into this book. But it was done with such a finesse that I didn't even notice until I finished this novel.

Ari is one tough cookie. The events and trials... ...more

Wow! What a ending to an amazing series! The wonder of a new world in Gravity, to the confusion in Hover, to the realisation in Collide. In this series, nothing was as it seems, allies were enemies, enemies were allies. Your whole concept of good and bad was twisted over in this book. Ari and Jac... ...more

I have been following this series ever since the release of Gravity back in 2012. I've grown to love and cherish these characters, but I was ready for the villains to be taken down in Collide. I went into the book, both with feelings of excitement and sadness for finishing this series. Ultim... ...more

This is one trilogy I DID NOT WANT TO END!!! The Taking books have given me emotional journeys, and I love all of the characters. Even Zeus, but only because of how awful he can truly be.

Ari shows just how strong she can be, both emotionally and physically. She gets thrown into circumstances that... ...more

I just turned the very last page of the final book in the trilogy that I really, really LOVE and I feel overwhelmed, sad and ecstatic all at once.

Collide is definitely an explosive end to this trilogy! I like how the title really fits with the plot of the novel. There was never a dull moment in this, and I loved the way everything is tied up in the end. This book was just as good as I was expecting!

I am just so freaking in love with this series you guys. Seriously. I never wanted it to end and the ending was definitely bittersweet because I wasn't ready to leave these characters or this world.

What.A.Book. Collide is an epic conclusion to The Taking Series. So much action, so many twists, so much PAIN. I loved it! (Yes, I'm booksochistic).
