Booklist Reviews 2012 May #2

Adam sees other people's deaths—he looks in their eyes and knows the date of their death as well as how they'll die. In The Chaos (2011), he successfully saved many Londoners by warning them to flee the city before catastrophe struck. Now, two years later, he lives with his pregnant girlfriend, Sarah, and her toddler daughter, Mia, in the country with other refugees. Concern for his family—baby Mia, who should have died but somehow didn't, is being hunted—leads to Adam's arrest by a crazed government official who intends to kill him and absorb his unique gift. The tense, action-filled narrative is told through Adam and Sarah's alternating voices, amping up the drama and the stakes of the mind-bending story. While this finale to the Numbers trilogy satisfies, ultimately Ward's complex and thought-provoking premise is a story that resists resolution. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Fall

In post-apocalyptic England, Adam's ability to read a person's death-date--their number--gets him captured by Saul, who steals others' numbers. If Adam won't cooperate, Saul will take Adam's girlfriend's number or his adopted daughter Mia's, leaving them to die. In this trilogy ender (Numbers, The Chaos), Ward doesn't create much new momentum, but plentiful action and high stakes will appease fans.
