Zoe was a Glitch in the perfect, orderly, apathetic new world of the Community, but after being rescued by Adrien and the Resistance, or as they call it, the Rez, she finally felt as though she belonged somewhere. Her feeling of safety is destroyed as their fight with the Community comes to an end and their home is overtaken. As a last resort Zoe attempts to destroy the humanity-enslaving mind Link by doing the most dangerous thing of all-- returning to the Community. With a mix of action, suspense, and romance, the final book in the Glitch series, Shutdown, comes to mind-blowing conclusion.
Heather Anastasiu creates a powerful new world in her Glitch series and does not disappoint with the final installment. Her characters are original and cleverly constructed, with an added element of realism that draws the reader in even more. Her writing is clear and interesting, and her explanations of her world are so scintillating that it feels as though such a world could come about tomorrow. As a difficult to put down page turner, this book is the perfect conclusion that ties the series together.
