Dima Zales Limbo and Haven reviews

I received these books in exchange for an honest review.

Today I'm returning with two short reviews. I finished reading Dima Zales's Last Humans trilogy at last. You can check out my review of the first book in the trilogy, Oasis, here - or keep reading for my reviews of Limbo and Haven.



From a New York Times bestselling author comes book 2 of The Last Humans trilogy

Yesterday, I learned all of Oasis’s secrets—or so I thought. As a new danger arises, the long-awaited Birth Day celebration turns into a nightmare, and this time, there may be no escape.

In Oasis, nothing is what it seems.

I had difficulty getting into Limbo. I actually put it down for a few months before picking it up again. I just wasn't that into it. Limbo seemed to be just more of the same of Oasis. I didn't care for how Theo and Phoe's relationship progressed. I kept waiting for Phoe to turn on Theo and it never happened. For me I feel like much of this book could have been left out and I could have gone from reading the first book skipping over this one to read the final book and still have been fine. So unfortunately this wasn't my favorite of the author's work.

Limbo is $3.99 for the Ebook but is also available in paperback and audio. 


From a New York Times bestselling author comes the mind-blowing conclusion of The Last Humans trilogy

What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be real?

I thought we were out of danger. I thought we’d outwitted our enemies. 

I was wrong.

As my world is torn apart, survival may not be what I expected.

I liked Haven a lot more than I did Limbo. It was easy and fun to read and I felt it finally got interesting again. I found I was still hanging on waiting for Phoe to do something rotten to Theo so for me the ending was kind of disappointing. Still I found the story to be disturbing yet interesting and enjoyable. I feel like this story could have become a cult classic if it had been written a few decades ago. But it wasn't, so some of the ideas behind it aren't brand new yet Zales puts some interesting spins on things and I feel borrows from other authors a bit. Recommended. 

Haven is also available for $3.99
