The Reckoning is Ebook So we (sadly) come to the end of the Earth Haven saga then - Sam Kates has written a brilliant trilogy one in which the end is not disappointing but marvellous, I have loved it all the way through.The thing about this story is it does have a more unusual plot, something slightly different to the normal "plague comes everyone wanders about fighting with each other then dies" type post apocalyptic drama - very character focused with moments as well of pure action, that come upon you suddenly and leave you slightly out of breath.In The Reckoning the final battle is coming, it is a battle of unexpected allies and unusual foes as has been set up during the previous two books - on the way to the really quite excellent finale the author pulls together the various strands of the created mythology in fine fashion - addictive reading from some very clever writing.I do like a well told yarn and this is a darned good one - the first book really set the scene and was unexpectedly clever - book two gave the middle ground as things settled then went into upheavel once more - all the time we were getting to know more and more about a set of characters I have come to love and certainly they will stay with me. Overall a really excellent and top notch set of novels to be had here - a story to be savoured and I have no hesitation in highly recommending these for fans of Scifi, Fantasy and post apocalytic shenanigans - I can't imagine that you will be disappointed especially if you like something just slightly quirkier than expected. And absolute brownie points for never letting the quality slip. Not a single dull moment to be had anywhere in the Earth Haven trilogy. Rocking.Happy Reading Folks! .

Good Ebook The Reckoning The third and final installment of the Earth Haven trilogy is finally here, and the Literary Connoisseur's verdict is in.First there was the Cleansing of Earth Haven. Then, the Beacon was activated, which signaled to more toxic beings destined to destroy what we call home. And in the end, there will be a Reckoning.The Reckoning was an extremely satisfactory ending to an original Sam Kates story. As I expected, The Reckoning was missing the key elements that made The Cleansing (book one) magical. The Cleansing provided a fresh, new story that captured my attention at first glance. The Beacon held my interest and further dug me deeper into the story of Earth Haven. The Reckoning wrapped everything up (in as neat a package as possible). Like most trilogy endings, The Reckoning provided a story that didn't have me as enthralled as the first two, but in the end completed me. The third and final book may not be my favorite of the trilogy, but it was certainly fulfilling enough to have the Earth Haven series, once again, at the top of my favorites list.There were shocking moments in the Reckoning that I didn't see coming. There were well-needed character developments, and introductions to characters that were key to the story. The Reckoning contained everything needed in a "final book."I am giving The Reckoning four stars out of five, but I'm giving the Earth Haven trilogy five stars altogether.I am not a sci-fi fan. But I am a huge Sam Kates fan.
