  1. In Written in Fire, the conclusion to the Brilliance Saga trilogy, author Marcus Sakey once again ratchets up the tension and suspense As was the case with Book 2, there were moments that the tension and suspense were so high that I had to stop myself from skipping ahead The entire trilogy was such a great ride I loved the characters, the world building, the action goodness, and how all the pieces of the story finally came together in the end The conclusion was done well, though I do think view [...]


  2. Posted toThe Literary Lawyer A Decent Finish 3.5Written in Firemarks the conclusion of the Brilliance Trilogy Overall, the series was creative and an excellent spin on the superheroes among us genre When I read the concluding story to any series, I expect it to go out with a bang It needs to wrap up the major issues with a great climax and either close off the universe or leave it open for .Written in Firehas left room for stories within this universe and has plenty of big bangs but in the most [...]


  3. Full disclosure I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review Many thanks to NetGalley and Thomas Mercer for making it available.Boy, do I hate it when a book series endsI devoured the first two books in Marcus Sakey s fantastic Brilliance trilogy, so I both eagerly anticipated and dreaded the arrival of the last book in the series, Written in Fire I ve finally caught my breath, as the action and the tension intensified as the book drew to a close One [...]


  4. I thought that this final book of the trilogy was a little better than the second book which I thought was mainly a placeholder but not as good as the first book I don t think that there was enough plot for three books, but trilogies seem to be the norm these days.I was particularly troubled by a few things in this book Among other things, the annoying love triangle was, unfortunately, still ongoing The characters spent a lot of time explaining their positions to each other The author resorted t [...]


  5. Beginning with Brilliance and A Better World, and culminating in the pitch perfect trilogy finisher, Written in Fire, Marcus Sakey has created an astonishing achievement a portrait of our world five minutes into the future It s a world exploding with technology and innovation, but imploding with the same fear and paranoia that threatens to destroy our world fear of those who are different What message could be profound These books are all thriller, with a perfect dusting of science fiction and [...]


  6. Copy provided by NetGalley.Wow, what a finish Or is it Readers should begin with the first book Though Sakey does some recap at the beginning, to feel the emotional impact on the characters, and follow their development, the series needs to be read from the first Which starts off with a bang This wrap up finishes in maximum overdrive, as one would expect from a science fictional thriller The body count is right up there with video games, but unlike video games, there is an emotional and moral co [...]


  7. this is how a trilogy should be written You definitely want to read the first 2 books before reading this one it s not really a standalone read Lots of action, the characters blossom and I had a hard time putting it down Will miss this storyline but Sakey certainly did it justice.


  8. I m one of those many readers who fell in love with this series w its first installment While the premise isn t overtly original substitute brilliants with mutants in any X Men comic and you d have pretty much have the same story , the execution and colorful characters really made the whole thing gel It was a smart thriller series and a lot of fun to read.The end to the trilogy for me, however, sucked all the fun right out of it I felt this book fell into so many cliches, from terrible dialogue [...]


  9. Immediate spoiler for A Better World It is juxtaposition that weighs heavy on my heart how I like Nick Cooper a lot because he s That Cop and I enjoy rooting for That Cop, but how I also wish he was dead Like a bummer of a record stuck in the same skip, I just can t review this book without getting this out of the way I wish the dude was dead I am still bitter about it Don t get me wrong, there s nothing wrong with him He s got the requisite ex wife and kids, he originally believed in the rightn [...]


  10. I enjoyed the first two books of the Brilliance trilogy, but Written in Fire fell a bit flat for me The first two books do a good job of world building, showing how the brilliants have influenced and changed the world and how the normals have worked to oppress them With a variety of fresh and intriguing characters, as well as mixed media such as advertisements and social media, the first two books establish this world and the perils both brilliants and normals face Written in Fire is much focus [...]


  11. Listened to the audiobook Written in Fire is the exciting, gripping, action packed conclusion to the Brilliance trilogy And exciting it was I listened to this on audiobook while working out, and it made me want to work out longer just so I could continue the book Luke Daniels is a phenomenal narrator, and one of my favorites Where we were left off at the end of book two was quite intense White House destroyed Check Multitude of dead Check Encroaching Civil War Check This can t possibly end well, [...]


  12. The conclusion to the Brilliance trilogy, although Sakey did leave the door open for further books, if he does not find success with another character Terrorist John Smith wants the persecution of brilliants twists to stop, and seems to be several steps ahead of everyone by grabbing some scientific research Meanwhile, a ragtag group of militia are making a move on the New Canaan Holdfast of billionaire Erik Epstein using unorthodox means to combat the defenses Our hero Nick Cooper has to interce [...]


  13. Written in Fire is the third novel of Marcus Sakey s Brilliance Trilogy and boy does he end this trilogy with a bang The first book in this trilogy Brilliance ranks as one of my favorite books of all time and although Written in Fire does not reach the heights of the first novel, it comes darn close Part Science Fiction, action thriller, with a dash of futurism, politics, psychology and military action, the entire Brilliance Saga is a thinly veiled allegory of human nature and society s innate a [...]


  14. This trilogy was enjoyable in the way most action packed summer blockbusters are However, Written in Fire was the weakest of the three in terms of consistency, logic and overall charm.The first two thirds of the book was just as enjoyable as the previous two stories Brilliance and A Better World Written in Fire suffers from serious issues with characters completely diverting from their originally established personality traits, and not in a good way.I found myself cringing throughout the last 10 [...]


  15. A limp weak ending to a promising series, at least for me I really liked the first one, was on board with the second though I thought it was also weaker than the first and my mother who enjoyed the first too, gave up midway through A Better World with a eh, I m done with this , but this third one barely made it over the finish line and I had to struggle to keep going with it, which is rare for me in last book to a trilogy Maybe the movie will be better, and I see it s under development and with [...]


  16. This is a wrap up of the entire trilogy than just this book since I never reviewed the first two books.The first book in The Brilliance Trilogy, Brilliance is about a small percentage of people in the world who are labeled as brilliants , as opposed to those who don t and are considered norms Brilliants have extraordinary senses which can be used in good ways or bad Nick Cooper, who is a brilliant, uses his skills working as an agent to help the U.S government track down other brilliants that u [...]


  17. I really liked the first book Brilliance of this trilogy and looked forward to reading this conclusion Written in Fire very much after having read the second one A Better World I was only slightly disappointed in the second one, in that it devolved into a lot of fighting conflicts and villains vs not villains kinds of tropes and got away from the importance of the premise But, instead of improving and going back to the story I wanted to know about how it was to live in a family, a community, a [...]


  18. Cette trilogie est l exemple parfait d une histoire trop tir e Une trilogie qui aurait du se contenter d tre un seul roman Le premier tait tr s bien, le deuxi me perdait des plumes et le troisi me s crase violemment au sol Triste fin pour cette trilogie Une criture trop visuel, on dirait que l auteur s imagine d j le film que ferait son livre Des personnages et leurs r plqiues st r otyp s mort et sans aucune volution Le th me des brillants et leur pouvoir devient un pr texte qui n apporte pratiq [...]


  19. So really, this book is at 2.5 stars Spoilers beyond this point, be warned So I came to the Brilliance saga looking for entertainment The print audio book equivalent of a well crafted action movie I wasn t even looking for Fifth Element or Starship Troopers quality here my friends just a little brain vacation The first two installments of Sakey s series did just that a mashup of Season 1 Heroes and 24.Then book 3 just kind of went of the railsI mean it s become preeeetty clear that Nick Cooper i [...]


  20. Brilliant end to the Brilliance trilogy Actually probably 4.5 stars If you liked the first 2 books BRILLIANCE and A BETTER WORLD in the Brilliance trilogy you will also like Written in Fire The third book has all the aspects of the first two action packed sequences, stunning plot developments, surprising character deaths and thought provoking dilemmas.The former secret agent Nick Cooper is still the main character, but the love triangle between Shannon, the Girl Who Walks Through Walls, and Nico [...]


  21. Let me start with the fact that while I read a great many books, I don t write a lot of reviews It s usually pick a star and move on to the next title Man did I love this series, but wow was I bummed out at the end Well perhaps bummed out is a little strong, maybe lost some momentum in the last mile would be a better way to put it Being the third and final book in the series I don t see any need to talk about how much fun the cast of characters and their individual brilliance is, or how strong a [...]


  22. Have you ever wondered as a comic book fan what it would be like if X men comics were really done right Well you should check out the Brilliance Saga I read the first book early last year and kind of tag teamed the last two back to back It is some truly inspired stuff, Mr Sakey can write up a storm.Does it have problems a fews get a bit cliche here and there, some of the exposition in the books gets a bit cartoonish but given the subject matter its understandable The action however, rocks and th [...]


  23. This book was provided free in exchange for an honest review While not as good as the first two, this was a good ending to an outstanding series I knew it would be tough to live up to the buildup from the first two books The issues raised are tough ones and hard to resolve in reality This last installment was entertaining and suspenseful The ending, the very last scene made my jaw drop Wow Hats off Mr Sakey for going there As a whole, I recommend this Scifi series It s a wild, yet surprisingly t [...]


  24. Dies ist nun der Abschluss der Trilogie ber sogenannte Abnorme in einer fiktiven Welt Wieder von vielen Intrigen und Machtk mpfen, offen und indirekt durchdrungen, gewinnt nun eine Seite der Kontrahenten und verhindert die Ausbreitung eines verheerenden Virus Ich wurde gut unterhalten und gebe 08 10 Punktensys blog 2016 1



  25. This is a stupid trilogy, but it s also somewhat enjoyable Or at least it started out that way The first book has its flaws, but it s a very entertaining story that reads like a 90s action movie I enjoyed it enough to read book 2, where the story begins to lose steam and a lot of the flaws in the writing become evident By book 3 it s almost painful There s plenty of cliches and ridiculous plots The internal monologues are agonizingly repetitive You know the old advice show don t tell Sakey has [...]


  26. This is the third book in the brilliance trilogy If you made it through the second novel which was bad you have good news and bad news the good news, this book is better then the second The bad news this is not a good book Yes, the idea of the series is fantastic Yes, it is thrilling at times and the action parts are written well But it is written in fire or exactly drowning in an endless mumbo jambo, every thought or a feeling that a catcher has, is describe in length, as a flashback to the pa [...]


  27. I really liked this book It was a fast paced page turner that made me care about what was going to happen I read this book in three days, I think, and that s pretty rare for me these days Overall, I would say only nice things about this book, except for the % ending This is my thought I m an author I get the desire for a cliffhanger.BUT this is the third book in what is supposedly a trilogy Wrap up your loose ends Usually I d consider this a minor offense, but in this case, the thread is a huge [...]


  28. The conclusion or is it of the Brilliance Saga I have loved every book in this series Great characters, great action, just a lot of fun This is like a smart action movie The characters have their super powers and they do a little scientific sounding mumbo jumbo to explain the biology of it, but it doesn t ultimately matter The major plot with the different powers on all sides is well put together, like a puzzle John Smith s plans unfolding is masterful There is occasionally some cheezy dialogue [...]


  29. Enjoyable characters Pulse pounding plot Perfect narration from Luke Daniels It was sad to lose a character who had endeared himself to us but great to see the love triangle turn out right And no surprise, Nick friends end up saving the world from war between the Norms the Abnorms at least for a little while Satisfying ending to the series Some strong language crude disturbing descriptions Kindle Unlimited, read listen
