    One thought on “The Forever Ships

    1. Justine on said:

      Excellently written but ultimately I can't say I enjoyed reading this series all that much.One of the main difficulties that I have had with this series all along is that I have never felt a particularly strong emotional connection to the main character, Cass. The story itself is very realistic and well told; Haig's prose is without fault. It is all extremely dire: the post-nuclear apocalyptic setting, the connection until death between the alpha and omega twins, the oppressive regime of control [...]

      The Forever Ship completes this trilogy which began with The Fire Sermon and continued with A Map of Bones – I’ll be sorry to see the back of Cass, Piper et al I’ve lived this journey with them and a brilliantly engaging and thought provoking one it was too and the lovely Ms Haig puts a pitch perfect finish on it.In this finale, the battle to save Elsewhere is the main focus along with ever changing loyalties and Cass still trying to come to terms with her relationship with Zach – twin a [...]

      well, i've done it nowevery time i get one of those emails alerting me that there's a book i want to read being offered as a giveaway, i go WOO HOOO!! (sometimes in my head, sometimes less discreetly), and i enter with glee, knowing that the odds are against me, and the ratio of entered/won brands me a loser more often that not. and i considered not entering this one, for a half-second, since it is the third book in a trilogy, and i have not read the first two books, even though they are right [...]

      3 1/2 stars for the conclusion of this trilogy . The emotions all were there , the same characters we started with and the same upending doom that we felt since we picked up the first book in this trilogy. Thanks to the folks at Netgalley for giving me a chance to read this book. I just have to say that I felt a little bit disappointed by the lackluster ending of this trilogy , I think they could have done a lot more. Pick it up this series if you are into dystopian futures and trilogies (who is [...]

      Satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. The violence is still extreme; the Alphas still confident in their superiority and the Omegas victimised and ruined. Some interesting little twists feature in this.

    6. Sheri S. on said:

      Uggghhh, it took me weeks to drudge through this book. It was just sooooo boring. I feel like this trilogy should definitely just been a duology. The story has been so obviously stretched out to cover three books, and that just annoys the heck out of me. But, since I had already invested a lot of reading time into this series, I tortured myself to reach the end just so that I could finally find out how the story concluded. This series was just okay, the first book being the best, most definitely [...]

      You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I liked the first two books of this series, The Fire Sermon and The Map of Bones. I mean, it wasn't exactly my favorite series of all time, but it was solid. And I was looking forward to this conclusion! In many ways, it was satisfying, but in a few key ways it did let me down a bit. As always, let's start with the good stuff! Oh, and I will try to keep this spoiler-free for the whole [...]

      3.5 stars!Didn't enjoy this one as much as the first two and I believe I gave them 5 stars each!

    9. All Things Urban Fantasy on said:

      Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyE FOREVER SHIP is an unflinching portrayal of revolution. War is more than fighting. It’s starvation, waiting, and unwinnable situations. For every victory in THE FOREVER SHIP there is an equal devastating loss. Part of this is due to the world building, which has the perfect specimens of the Alphas unbalanced by their disabled Omega twin. The Omegas are fighting to save Elsewhere and destroy the Council, while the Alpha’s want to maintain their sup [...]

      *Source* Edelweiss*Genre* Science Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic*Rating* 3.5*Thoughts*The Forever Ship is the third and final installment in author Francesca Haig's The Fire Sermon trilogy. This book picks up right where The Map of Bones left off. Haig has created a world that is 400 years in the future. The Earth has turned primitive following a nuclear fire that laid waste to civilization and nature. Though the radiation fallout has ended, for some unknowable reason every person is born with a twi [...]

    11. Michelle (Much Loved Books) on said:

      I'm struggling to get into this one. It's been so long since I read the first book, and then stumbled my way through the second, there is far too much for me to try to remember to really enjoy this one and I don't have the time at the moment for a series re-read.

    12. James Rhodes on said:

      I loved the first two books of this series, the prose was so wonderfully rich, the narrative tension well maintained and I was looking forward to a solid conclusion. Unfortunately, I just didn't feel it with this one. The third book of a trilogy is generally the weakest but this seemed unusually weak. The first half of the novel is devoid of action and the only tension comes from the cast being in the same place and the possible presence of a traitor. There is no sense of events driving to any c [...]

    13. Thomas Shepherd on said:

      What is there more to say about to this book other than it is the explosive finale to the Fire Sermon trilogy of books. For a world where everyone is born with a fatal bond of twinship, where one twin is healthy and the other disabled in some form and they are segregated as such into rival 'races' - the Alphas and the Omegas - there is only one way that this story can end. For one cannot live if the other doesn't survive. Francesca Haig keeps you guessing though. Cass is a seer though, and her v [...]

    14. Jamie Lea on said:

      I enjoyed the series as a whole but I wasn't very satisfied with the ending of this book. I also found Cass quite irritating in this last book and feel that the ending made me dislike her more. I would have liked more at the end. I did find it interesting to learn more about Zach and feel that The Ringmaster could've been explored a bit more too. Unfortunately this isn't a series I would be rushing to re-read. But on the whole a strong series and the style of writing is fantastic.

    15. Allen Adams on said:

      themaineedge/buzz/the-There’s nothing quite like a literary trilogy. As a reader, there’s something wonderful about seeing a story unfold over the course of three books; you get more detailed narrative than in a single book without having to deal with the nebulous endpoint of an ongoing series.In many ways, three is the magic number.It’s certainly magic for Francesca Haig, whose new novel “The Forever Ship” marks the third and final installment of her “Fire Sermon” series. It is a [...]

    16. Kelly on said:

      So ends The Fire Sermon trilogy. While the first book in this series is easily the strongest (and could arguably stand alone), The Forever Ship offered an interesting conclusion to Zach and Cass’s story. It recovers most of the suspenseful pacing that was lost in The Map of Bones, and the inevitable conflict of Alpha vs. Omega more or less resolves. First, the criticisms: this is unquestionably a young adult series, and there are some predictable plot twists that more seasoned readers will see [...]

      An action-packed read about what it is like to put your life in the hands of your twin.

    18. archdandy on said:

      We finally get to read the third installment in the 'Fire Sermon' trilogy! If I had to rate all three books it would be in order 'The Fire Sermon', 'The Forever Ship' and then 'The Map of Bones'. I was disappointed with the second book and I had hoped the third wouldn't be the same. Luckily it turned out to be much better in my opinion. The whole series and world that Cass and her friends live in is bleak but the second book just felt too bleak. It didn't feel like there was anything good in it [...]

    19. Alisha Tarran on said:

      This review is actually hard for me to write. I loved the first book so much, it sucked me in and I was completely hooked. It was original and brilliantly written and such a great read. The second book lagged a little bit for me, but pulled itself back with the surprising twist at the end that made me reexamine how I looked at the book and the world of the book. Now don't get me wrong, as I started to read this I was straight back in to the world of the book. I loved Paloma, she was such an inte [...]

      After reading The Fire Sermon and The Map of Bones last year, I knew I had to see the trilogy out and preordered The Forever Ship as soon as I could. I feel that you do need to have read the previous two books to understand what is going on.Read more at: abisbookreviews/2017/07/15

      Full review and more up on my blog: bit/2uAg3v1So I joined this story at book number three, which, is not something I advise doing but I’m a rebel without a cause so I have been known to do so from time to time. What I will tell you is that this concept is so solid that you don’t need to have read the first two books to figure out pretty much everything that happened in them. This is a stupendously good thing (at least it was for me) because it means I don’t spend the first third of the bo [...]

    22. SALLY WHITE on said:

      Thank you for sending me this book. I have been lucky enough to read the first two books in this series and therefore have been looking forward to reading the third and . final book of the trilogy I did not think it disappointed. I must admit that throughout the books, Cass has sometimes been annoying and irritating. This has continued for me in this book, although I must say the ending of this book was worth waiting for and I will miss the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series of b [...]

      Really enjoyed this book and would love to read more by this author.

    24. Roberta Jayne on said:

      3.5 stars. I was very hyped for this. The Fire Sermon was one of the best first books in a series by a debut author that I'd ever read, and this final part of the story made me extremely nostalgic for the first book. But, similiarly to The Map Of Bones, it failed to pack the same amount of punch.The book was definitely better than The Map Of Bones overall. I think that instalment suffered a lot from middle-book-syndrome. The writing of all three books had the same emotional and dramatic quality [...]

    25. Amanda Bartoszek on said:

      I was so looking forward to this book; to find out the conclusion of this story. I loved this series from beginning to end.The first two books ripped my heart to shreds, and I was fully prepared for this book to do the same. It did not disappoint - parts of this story were so heart-wrenching it was painful to read. With every major plot part there was the tension of who would die, and I was shocked (and relieved) more ways than one.As with the first two books, the story was permeated with storie [...]

    26. Josephine on said:

      The Forever Ship by Francesca Haig is the final book in The Fire Sermon trilogy and I have been beyond excited about it.What I liked: I think pretty much everything. It was a satisfying conclusion to a trilogy that utterly gripped me; I loved that it tied everything up in a way that whilst I might not have chosen, I understood. This whole series is so good people – read it.What I didn’t like: I would like there to be more please. I don’t like that it’s over. Also, THAT ENDING. I mean, I [...]

    27. Jackie on said:

      I enjoyed this trilogy a lot. Great to have dystopian aimed at adults not YA. The writing was beautiful in this final instalment as throughout. If I had a criticism it would be that the pace could have been a bit quicker, as is often the case, this could have been told in two parts I think, so the beginning of this felt a bit slow. That said, the last third was excellent and, without spoilers, I loved the end, I thought it was just perfect. I will definitely look out for what Francesca writes ne [...]

    28. Ann on said:

      This was a very satisfying conclusion to the series, Fire Sermon. You do need to read the first two books to appreciate the whole story. There is an abundance of violence as the Alpha and Omega twins finally end their wars. Older teens and adults will enjoy and I read that the series has been optioned for a movie.

    29. Katie on said:

      WHY DID IT END LIKE THAT CASS DESERVED BETTERAhem.I'm glad Piper and Cass finally gave in but why did she send him off alone??Otherwise a very satisfying end to the trilogy.
