The much-anticipated final instalment in Olivie Blake's trilogy that began with the New York Times bestselling phenomenon, The Atlas Six.
The complexities of Olivie Blake’s mind will never cease to amaze me.
In this third instalment of the Atlas Six trilogy, Blake has created all six of her main characters as richly imagined individuals with a depth that makes them feel human. This equally applies to all her the minor characters that we learn to love and hate along the way. Her writing intimately explores the intricacies of life, death, power, and corruption, all the while continuing to build a world that is breathtaking in its complexity.
In The Atlas Complex we finally get a peek into Atlas Blakely’s psyche. The core of his rise and fall. The epitome of the power of choice, and how many possibilities have the potential to become reality, whether inherently bad or good.
The six Alexandrians (Libby, Nico, Callum, Parisa, Tristan, and Reina) fight their way to the top, slowly realising an offer of power does not equate to acquiring power without any personal cost. Olivie Blake creates such thoughtful and reflective pieces of work that make you think about the polarity of being human, and existing in such a place where all emotions are not finite, and the soul can be as equally crushed and elated within the same 24 hours.
An astonishing finale, that I rate as a 5 star read.
The much-anticipated final instalment in Olivie Blake's trilogy that began with the New York Times bestselling phenomenon, The Atlas Six. Only the extraordinary are chosen. Only the cunning survive. In this stunning finale, it's a race to survive as the Society recruits are faced with the question of what they're willing to betray for limitless power – and who will be destroyed along the way.
