    SHUT YOUR MOUTHS IS MY ETIENNE COMING BACK?! OH MY GOSH 😩 EDIT 8/25/2021 …. I am truly devastated. I am truly in love.

    I’m torn between 4 and 5 stars because I really do love this series and I think this a triumphant finale but this series is why I hate love triangles/squares, the one time I let myself get invested in one it ends with the stupidest option. (view spoiler)[I am SO MAD that Marcellus emotionally gaslit Chatine this whole book and GOT AWAY WITH IT?? Get in the bin. Etienne was right there and although I thought the twist that HE was the Eponine counterpart was really clever (and I cried at THAT scene I’m torn between 4 and 5 stars because I really do love this series and I think this a triumphant finale but this series is why I hate love triangles/squares, the one time I let myself get invested in one it ends with the stupidest option.

Etienne was right there and although I thought the twist that HE was the Eponine counterpart was really clever (and I cried at THAT scene) I’m mad that he died to pave the way for Marcellus who never deserved Chatine. I guess Alouette just stopped being part of the love square altogether at some point, even though Marcellus was still flip-flopping between them until Etienne suddenly wasn't an obstacle anymore. Chatine spent so much of the books being defined by her hopeless commitment to Marcellus, a commitment she became aware was unhealthy for her, and I really wish the ending had been that she overcame that and went on to live a fulfilled life with her brother helping raise the other orphans or working within the Sisterhood with Alouette. (hide spoiler)] ANYWAY this series really is very good despite the odd overly cheesy Les Mis reference. I listened to all of them on audiobook and have to applaud the cast who all portrayed their characters excellently. If you like Les Mis, Star Wars, The Hunger Games - give these books a go.

    4.5 Holy shit. What an epic conclusion to this book series. I fell in love with the series and this one especially with all of the small clues and nuances to Les Miserables and the casual mentioning of different track titles, it was just so good. I had a few issues with the way the romances were done and the importance that it was played and I know that that's a big part of the musical / the book but it's through things off for me in this particular retelling.

Anyway, maybe I can write a more coherent review at some point, but for now if you are a fan of Les Miserables and sci-fi books you 100% need to pick this up. These books are massive but oh so worth it.

    here’s the thing: there’s no way that i can rate this book without a bias. because this series mean the absolute world to me. it’s so so SO rare for me to find a book where i just fall completely and whole heartedly i love with it, and when i read Sky Without Stars last year, that’s what happened. the world and the characters absolutely stole my heart in a way that hasn’t happened since i read Percy Jackson when I was twelve years old. reading is truly an escape for me, and the time i feel most here’s the thing: there’s no way that i can rate this book without a bias. because this series mean the absolute world to me. it’s so so SO rare for me to find a book where i just fall completely and whole heartedly i love with it, and when i read Sky Without Stars last year, that’s what happened. the world and the characters absolutely stole my heart in a way that hasn’t happened since i read Percy Jackson when I was twelve years old. reading is truly an escape for me, and the time i feel most like myself is when i read a book. but often, i can only see the things i don’t like in books. i have a hard time loving a book because there are things that i could just not get past. sometimes it’s hard bc i want to LOVE what i read and that often doesn’t happen. even some of my five star reads aren’t perfect in my eyes. but these books truly are yes, there were some problems i had with this book. i didn’t care for the way the romance went, and i times i did think the book dragged. but honestly, i don’t CARE. because these books brought me such joy and honestly it wouldn’t be fair for me to give this book anything under five stars. i sobbed for TWENTY minutes during one part of the book, and never have i done that. yes, every once in a while, i will shed some tears over a book. but this one? this one hurt me so profoundly. i guess the bigger thing i’m trying to say here is, if you love a book, LOVE IT. don’t get so caught up in nitpicking it apart for things you don’t like (like i do) as a kid i would read everything and just love it all because of all the different things i got to experience. it makes me sad, that, as i’ve gotten older, i don’t love every single book i’ve read, or love it like i did when i was younger. so when i find a book that just makes the world completely disappear, i don’t care if there is things that i don’t like, because for a few pages i’m a kid again living in my own imagination, in a world where my problems disappear. thank you so much to the authors for writing these books. i don’t they will ever realize how much they truly mean to me. sobbed for twenty minutes and when i finally convinced myself to pick the book back up i sobbed again for another twenty. so yeah good times.

    A+ rating. Wow. I just finished reading with tears in my eyes. This series has been everything. Wow. Such a gorgeously written tale that I savored. These 3 books are long, but I took my time with them because they were so good...I savored them. That's not the way that I normally read, but something about these books demanded that kind of respect and appreciation. It's a gorgeous series and the finale was impeccable. SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS SERIES! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!! SOOOO GOOD! A+ rating. Wow. I just finished reading with tears in my eyes. This series has been everything. Wow.

Thank you, Ms. Brody, for ending his miserably pathetic life. I'm glad Roche lived. That kid is adorable. And Cerise. She got even more badass. I totally agree and share Gabriel's thoughts on our sparkle. I love her. Overall, I liked it. Awesome ending to a series.

I've enjoyed this series so much. It wasn't until book two that I understood exactly why. That's when I started to see parallels to The Hunger Games. And though, one is Dystopian and one is Scifi, the hearts of the story are the same. Both series, while being action-packed, are very character driven. Both series have similar lessons. And, that ending had lots of Katniss/Peeta energy. I wish we had got some of the aftermath of *everything* and more lead up to the epilogue but I'm satisfied with it. Eventually, I would like to do an entire series reread. I highly recommend the audiobooks.

    This was a marathon of a book. Some of the characters' motivations toward the end didn't make sense, and that annoyed me a bit. It seemed too convenient. But, overall it was a good conclusion to a unique series, and a good read. This was a marathon of a book.

This entire System Divine trilogy is perfect for those who love rebellions, sacrifices, and power plays. It unfolds across galaxies and hearts. SF Space Operas are my sweet spot and so to witness it combined with Les Mis is a true joy. We are presented with the challenge about how we should rebel. What is the "just" cause? Where is the line between sacrifice and revenge? Suns Will Rise examines the conflict for a way forward. About whether we must choose between action and peace. It is thoughtful as Brody and Rendell explore power and privilege. full review: https://utopia-state-of-mind.com/revi...

The pacing seemed off - spending so much time just not doing anything that by the time the book was wrapping up I couldn't find myself caring about any of it.

So much of this book was speeches, sitting around or getting into a conflict that never had any meaning by the end. A good chunk of this book is set aside for receiving the bricks the camp needs to stay hidden - but there's never an explanation on who actually stole it and why they didn't rat the camp out. They also never get the supplies back and it's just set up for the war machines reveal - which is resolved in two sentences at the end and no one really thinks about this at all. The characters seemed to have drastically different charactizations from the previous two books or even different charactization from a previous chapter - including characters seemingly no longer caring for someone they cared about in a previous book. Gabriel and Alouette are friends in book 2, have history from their childhood, he literally takes a stun bullet for her but neither of them care enough to ask about the other. Gabriel is now so obsessed with Cerise - I don't even wanna get into this but I hated this - that no one else matters anymore. And there were so much seemingly happening off screen that we never got to see and just had to accept for what it was, meaning we not got any real explanation for things. Chatine tells her brother that they're related off page in book 2 and it's in part 3 of this book when you realize that this actually happened - though she seemingly never tells him that they have an older sister. Gabriel gets unstuck from underneath a barricade to end up in the sewers with no explanation on how he got there let alone the fact Hugo carried him back to the place. Jorlas just seemingly trusts the Inspector and we still never know /why/ - it's also to a point where Max trusts him and how? Why? There's no way I'm meant to be believe they just didn't recognize him when Hugo recognizes him /immediately/. This book just felt so off and it was disappointing that it turned out this way.

    I am writing this review through tears. Wow. This was good. Throughout the System Divine series, the plot has veered in some areas closer to the original plot of Les Mis and in others more toward its own path. Going into this much-anticipated finale, I really didn't know what to expect, but I needn't have worried. My expectations were exceeded by an ending both so like Les Mis and at the same time totally different. I was very happy with how almost every character's story was ended.

My one real complaint is that I thought those of the main characters who did not have chapters written from their point of view were left out a bit more in this story, especially (view spoiler)[Gabriel (hide spoiler)] . However, I was very happy with how it went for a book with a larger cast that had a lot to get done in 700 pages. Suns Will Rise is a spectacular ending to my favorite book series, and I would (and do) recommend it to anyone who is even remotely interested in the plot and genre.

    This was incredibly long and incredibly boring - if I thought the first two books were overly long and dragged things out way too much, then this one really took the cake. I didn't like the direction that the romances took, the characterisations seemed to be a bit of mess, the plot a bore, and there were too many things happening off-page so that the actual story itself seemed to be missing parts that could have been important and we were just supposed to accept it.

    1 star deducted specifically bc gabriel and etienne (the characters i decided were gay on a whim and then had my whim solidified when they TOUCHED HANDS and LISTENED TO EACH OTHER BREATHE like a bunch of GAY NERDS) did NOT kiss, which is just illegal tbh /j ummm anyway this was fun i love silly YA retellings. i enjoyed it as a conclusion but also it's a silly YA retelling so it wasnt perfect. id probably give it more like 3.5 stars if u could do half stars on here 1 star deducted specifically bc gabriel and etienne (the characters i decided were gay on a whim and then had my whim solidified when they TOUCHED HANDS and LISTENED TO EACH OTHER BREATHE like a bunch of GAY NERDS) did NOT kiss, which is just illegal tbh /j ummm anyway this was fun i love silly YA retellings. i enjoyed it as a conclusion but also it's a silly YA retelling so it wasnt perfect. id probably give it more like 3.5 stars if u could do half stars on here

    As good a finale to a trilogy as anyone could ask for with toe-curling action and suspense right up to the final page. Beginning it was like attending a tenth year reunion, sitting beside an old friend to awkwardly figure out how to reconnect, but finding just a few sentences were all that was necessary to make the two of you feel like no time had passed. That was how easily and fast I returned to the epic story completed here. An amazing read!

    Endings are so hard for readers, wonder if they are as hard for writers...but alas this epic space opera retelling of Les Miserables is finished, I have read it all...and yes, well I am interested in more! Damn it! hahaha Really enjoyed this series. The scifi is perfect, the ending is massive and some I was not ready for, and overall highly recommend for Les Mis fans and for those that barely know a thing about the books, movies, or plays (like me).

    I think this trilogy is one of the most enjoyable I have ever read. I have literally read all three books in one week, and that included waiting for the next to be delivered. This is consummate story telling and I have not been able to put them down. Suns will rise provides the perfect ending, following in the tradition of Les Mis and I warn anyone reading this to have a hanky [tissue] ready for the end. A true masterpiece has been united with another !
