    Craigluy is a world divided according to class. Lower, middle and upper classes are separated and live totally different lives. In Territory L, Emma Whisperer is the last child to turn 18. The last baby to grow up. Lower class citizens have been deemed irresponsible and are no longer allowed to have children. Anyone who comes up pregnant is arrested, forced to bear the child and watch as the baby is taken away to be killed. It is a brutal world to live in. Those in Territory M and Territory U ha Craigluy is a world divided according to class. Lower, middle and upper classes are separated and live totally different lives. In Territory L, Emma Whisperer is the last child to turn 18. The last baby to grow up. Lower class citizens have been deemed irresponsible and are no longer allowed to have children. Anyone who comes up pregnant is arrested, forced to bear the child and watch as the baby is taken away to be killed. It is a brutal world to live in. Those in Territory M and Territory U have other options, but President Esther controls all aspects of society no matter which class. Emma Whisperer....the last child....wants to change everything. She wants everyone to live together again...for people to be free. The Extinction of all Children series is a trilogy. Book one introduces Emma and centers around Territory L. The storyline moves from L to the middle class area and on to the upperclass walled-in territory in the final book. I enjoyed how the characters developed throughout this series. Emma knows in the first book that she wants to see President Esther's policies destroyed...to remove the segregation from the people of Craigluy. Over the 3 books, Emma and the followers/supporters she gathers go from dreaming of freedom to actually fighting to try and make it happen. President Esther is a worthy, tricky adversary. She is wiley and wise. I found myself not able to totally hate her. Down at her very core, there is some good....at one point she actually had the best interests of the people at heart. But it got twisted inside her mind. Absolute power really does corrupt. All in all this series is a very enjoyable read. I found the premise a bit unrealistic, but the story for me was enjoyable enough to override my sense of realism. The charcters are nicely developed over the 3 parts of the story. There is a lot of action, and the story moves along at a nice pace. There is plenty of suspense and some nice twists in the tale. Enjoyable read! Nothing inappropriate for older teenagers, but be aware that there is discussion of abuse, death, imprisonment, murder, infanticide, torture, violence and other topics that may require a trigger warning for some students/adults reading this series. **I voluntarily read review copies of the three books in this series by L. J. Epps via NetGalley. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.**

    I really felt like this book redeemed the second one. Emma made some smart decisions. She had more moxie. I felt she also made some irritating mistakes but that is normal. I thought overall, she was a character I could root for. I felt that some of the twists were expected. I had a feeling about one in the first book that turned out to be correct. The epilogue was well written. I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

I have very little to say about the last book in the trilogy. The plot twists lacked the element of surprise, and the main action sequence involving Emma and a foe went down as I expected it would. Having read the entire series, the feeling I’m left with is disappointment. The premise behind the trilogy has massive potential for an exciting set of books, but—for me—it failed to get there.

    3 stars "Journey to Territory U" is the final book of the "Extinction of All Children" trilogy, and in my opinion, it certainly didn't disappoint; although I did find it a little bit predictable. I was able to figure out the big twist of the plotline prior to the big reveal as well as some of the other components of the storyline; but in spite of this, the book was still worth reading.

I was able to figure out the big twist of the plotline prior to the big reveal as well as some of the other components of the storyline; but in spite of this, the book was still worth reading. I wasn't sure what I would think of this book as I absolutely loved the first book and found the second book mildly enjoyable. In this installment Emma and her friends find themselves in Territory U looking for petition signatures from Territory U residents in support of removing the barriers between the territories. Even though President Esther has allowed this mission in Territory U, she has ulterior motives and Emma and her friends must discover what those ulterior motives entail. In addition, after arriving in Territory U, Emma quickly finds herself back in Territory L under shocking circumstances while her friends must persue their mission without her at the beginning. "Journey to Territory U" answers our unanswered questions and concludes the trilogy nicely. It picks up immediately following it's predecessor "Journey to Territory M" and keeps readers engaged. It offers more betrayals, exposed secrets, and a violent fight against President Esther and her watchman. No one is safe. Can Emma save Territory L from President Esther before its too late? "Journey to Territory U" was a quick read and definitely worth investing your time in the trilogy.

This series had possibilities. But aspects of the writing style bothered me. The author repeatedly explained modern conveniences such as the automatic lights. Multiple, multiple times. The writing style was somewhat immature and unpolished. The story line was an interesting concept about a segregated part of the country that was further subdivided by a ruthless dictactor for life who broke the country into Territory L (Lower Class), Territory M (Middle Class), and Territory U (Upper Class). The heroine is the last child permitted to be born in Territory L because the president will not allow anyone to have children in the territory. These books are her adventures into making changes to the repressive regime. The plot had great promise, but the execution was amateurish. The plot surprises were predictable and not at all surprising. This book series could use a good editor. I read all three books but would only mildly recommend them to others.

But, I was surprised. Journey to Territory U was an enjoyable read. There are triggers in Journey to Territory U. They are the same triggers as the other books. I would recommend not reading the book if you are triggered by infanticide. Journey to Territory U’s plotline is different than the other books. Emma got the President to let her gather signatures for a petition. The petition is to merge the classes, bring down the wall, and stop the baby killing. Emma and her friends have a ten-day free pass to gather those signatures. Then Rich will have free reign to do what he wants. Top of his list, kill Emma. I enjoyed reading this book. The plotline flowed. I was able to reconnect with Emma. Her crusade to find Abigail and to knock down the walls was reaching a fever pitch. I also liked seeing how different Territory U was on the surface. The deeper Emma dug, the more similar it was to M and L. The people in U were governed by the same fear that kept M and L in compliance. They had more fear because the President could strip them of their U status and send them to live in L. It must have been a terrifying place to live. There were a few twists in the plotline. The one which involved Emma, President Esther, and Henry, I saw coming a mile away. I figured it out while reading Journey to Territory M. The one with Rich didn’t surprise me. He was an unhinged individual who blamed his problems on a girl who had nothing to do with them. But, I didn’t see the other two twists. Both took me by surprise. Both made me go “No way.” I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Emma surprised me in this book. The author made up for her stagnating in Journey to Territory M. Her character growth seemed like it was on steroids. I was amazed. I still found her annoying, but I liked her for the first time in the series. She was dealt some severe blows in this book. Secrets that her parents kept came back to bite her in the butt. Plus, she had to deal with Rich. Rich’s issues with Emma were revealed in this book. I underestimated his character. The level of hate he had for Emma was insane. I didn’t understand why the President kept him around until Rich confessed to another guard. That’s when the lightbulb went on in my head. I’ll say this: I didn’t doubt his loyalty to President Esther. He lost his mind in this book. This book was more focused on Emma’s relationships with her friends and family. I liked that. It showed that Emma valued her friends and family. It also taught me that Emma had a good reason for doing what she did. Oh, I do want to mention that Emma beating down Nathan was one of the best scenes in the book. Jerk deserved it!! President Esther morphed from a President with issues to a dictator in this last book. I was horrified by what she was doing. She did get what was coming to her at the end. Now, I say that, but I also felt terrible for her. What happened to her should have never happened. It made me wonder if things were different, would she have mellowed out? Or would she still be the evil person that she became? I do want to warn: Do not get attached to any of the characters. They are all expendable. I was taken by surprised at who the author killed off. So, don’t get attached!! As with the other books, Journey to Territory U fit in with the dystopia and young adult genres. I had no issue believing that something like this could happen in the future. It is happening in a way now (with the abortion rulings’ in several states). I would recommend keeping an open line of communication if a teenager does read this book. There are some severe issues discussed throughout the book. There was no sex in Journey to Territory U (thank God!!). As I stated in my review of Journey to Territory M, the whole Emma/Eric/Samuel wanna be love triangle didn’t work for me. It shouldn’t have even been touched. The end of Journey to Territory U had me in turmoil. So much happened at once that I had issues processing it. I will say that President Esther got what was coming to her. I didn’t like the 180 that one character did. That person showed their true colors in Journey to Territory M. It was hard for me to believe that they could change. The epilogue was great but not believable. Change happens but not that fast. I would give Journey to Territory U an Older Teen rating. There is no sex. There is violence. There is language. I would recommend that no one under the age of 16 read this book. I would reread Journey to Territory U. I would also reccomend this book to family and friends. I would like to thank the author for allowing me to read and review Journey to Territory U. **I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book** Have you read Journey to Territory U? What are your thoughts on it? Let me know!!

    This the concluding installment of the Extinction of All Children Trilogy. I found that this novel is stronger than the second novel, but not as strong as the first. The world-building that was there was solid. There was also room for more of it in order to truly flesh out the universe and make it feel real. The character building could have been improved. As I mentioned in my review of the second installment, the choice to use a first-person perspective does hinder this.

The world-building that was there was solid. There was also room for more of it in order to truly flesh out the universe and make it feel real. The character building could have been improved. As I mentioned in my review of the second installment, the choice to use a first-person perspective does hinder this. Still, I think there was plenty of room to make the characters less one-dimensional and to provide them with some ambiguity (after all, good intentions lead to bad outcomes, just as selfish intentions can lead to positive outcomes). Furthermore, despite all that Emma witnessed and experienced, she doesn't really grow and change as a character. (I can say, from personal experience, that losing a parent - sans being a rebel-heroine trying to overthrow a corrupt regime - changed me permanently. It was only after about 5 years that I started to feel somewhat myself again. Between all the losses Emma suffers, I can't see any way that she wouldn't evolve, and yet, she reads consistently all the way through the novels). The pacing of the story was generally good. I did feel that the final action scene needed work. The writing was very choppy and matter of fact (He did this. She did that. I tried to do this). The repetitive sentence length and structure rendered this, frankly, boring to read. I found that, while the epilogue provided all of the major (and some minor) characters' circumstances, these were not always in line with the tone of the novel, and didn't really make sense to me given the outcome of the main story. There were also plenty of mistakes in this novel: plurals and possessives were confused, there were errors of logic (you can't really bleed to death immediately - bleeding to death, by definition, takes some time: usually minutes), misused words (stature instead of status), and so on. I think that fixing these up, as well as varying the sentence structures and length would really have helped this novel. There were some really interesting themes presented, but I didn't feel that any of them was given its due treatment. The one theme that stood out as being poorly handled was that of race. Emma was convinced that her bi-racial status was part of the reason she was treated differently, but I didn't ever encounter any evidence as to why she would hold this belief, let alone how she came to be aware that might be a consideration at all. It seemed that Emma was the only character that cared about race (she describes characters as light-skin or dark-skin). Had Territory L been nearly exclusively brown people, or had officials at various levels used racial language, I think this theme would have fared more successfully. In its current treatment, it came across as a weird sort of after-thought that neither enriched the plot nor was a pointed criticism of current societal practises. Overall, I was really intrigued by the premise of this story, but I didn't feel that this trilogy ever really reached its potential, which is a shame.

The plot line moved really slow, the characters didn’t show any growth, and the writing didn’t improve. We had all of this going for us and it just didn’t happen. The plot was supposed to be full of surprises, but those surprises were actually very predictable and the twists just didn’t go as planned. I mean, there was so much that could have happened and be done, even if it was predictable. I mean, look at The Hunger Games, the plot there was highly predictable, but there was so many well done twists that it was still surprising. I really feel that if LP is going to stay in this genre that something has to change. The writing didn’t improve at all throughout the series. We were still being told what was going to happen, then being shown. It was super choppy and lacked a lot of the elements needed to write really good science fictions. I don’t know how it can be improved other than with practice. However, if you are not listing to any of your critics, then there is no way that you can improve on it. The characters were flat, even the villains. It was extremely hard to get invested in what was going on with them. I just ended up not caring about them. Emma’s character didn’t even change at all. This was something I pointed out in my last review and it still bothers me. I really do like my characters to change and grow, which is something that should happen in books like this. Anyway…This was a series with all the potential in the world, but it just didn’t come out as planned.

But as with everything with the PResident, this assignment isn't what it seems. I really enjoyed eh story. The idea that children would either be killed or adopted out to the reach has population control isn't often looked at in mainstream YA. L.J. Epps gets dark with the story and Emma's place within this world. The first part of the books takes forever to get et anything to happen but when things start to happen, the pace intensifies and you devour the rest of the story. As good as the story is, some of the writing isn't great. Epps uses the same plot forwarding tools over and over. Emma is always lucky enough to overhear something and she s always giving speeches. More variety if plot techniques would have moved the story along faster and made the characters' actions mean more. Overall, Extinction of All Children is an engaging dystopian story and Journey to Territory U is an exciting conclusion. I received an ARC through NetGalley; all opinions are my own.

The question still remains if the president will keep her word to allow the successful completion of Emma’s dream. In the meantime, the president has her own agenda and Emma is a definitive part. Including a life-altering revelation that Emma is completely unprepared for, forcing her to choose between her family and friends, or total submission. There is no easy answer.

    I just couldn't get enough of this story. Emmas continued journey emotionally, physically and mentally was nothing short of astounding! To see the continued growth of one person for the betterment of mankind to the growth of the other to try and wipe out a whole specific class off people simply because she believes they don't deserve to live is so great and and the contrast between the two main characters were exceptional. Oh and i loved the twist which i guessed but wasn't 100% sure by the end I just couldn't get enough of this story. Emmas continued journey emotionally, physically and mentally was nothing short of astounding!

    Another ok book in this trilogy. We finally get some answers to questions that were hinted at from Book 1 (and basically were not unexpected at that point either). But the biggest downside I saw in this was the speed at which it wrapped up - I felt like there was a lot of story left to tell with only 10% of the book remaining. Not a bad YA dystopian trilogy, but nothing to write home about either. I received this book from the publisher through Net Galley ik exchange for an honest review.

    The last book in the series is maybe the least interesting of the three. This is mainly because of the story itself since the writing is just as solid as the first two books. In this last episode the main character finds out some horrible truths about herself. The end good all good ending feels a bit like an anti climax. All in all I truly enjoyed this trilogy. Don't let yourself get stopped by a somewhat weaker conclusion in the end. The last book in the series is maybe the least interesting of the three.

    I am so gutted that this serious of books is over. I loved all three books. Just like the first 2, this book was written beautifully. It captivates you, is gripping, keeps you on your toes, lures you in and makes you never want to put it down. So many twists and turns and yet it all comes together amazingly. This is a trilogy I highly recommend you buy and read. Your life will never be the same again for how you see a world could be run. It makes you thankful for what you do have.

    Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I enjoyed this series for the most part. The premise of this series made it a decent read for a young adult’s series. One comes to like and appreciate the characters though I would have loved to see more character development. Overall, this series is worth a read. Overall a great finale for this dystopian tale.

    Volume 3 was good but seemed rushed to be finished and I felt that the epilogue especially covered too much time to provide a conclusion. The complete story line was good and I enjoyed all 3 volumes but #journeytoterritoryu didn’t hit all the same high notes as the first 2 volumes. I wouldn’t skip it after spending the time to read the first 2 but just be prepared for the possible letdown. Thanks to #netgalley and the publisher for this ebook to read and review.

    More please I feel like there is room for this series to grow. Life won't be easy making thing's right. Then there's the states located on the borders, I'm sure they could cause a ruckus. And there's no telling what could crop up with all the babies. Not to mention the love lives. More please I feel like there is room for this series to grow. Life won't be easy making thing's right.

    My least favorite book of the series. The dialogue became cringe worthy in spots and just so unrealistic. I finished just to see how it was tied up but I was sad to read how the characters became so dumb. Horrible things going on and yet they are all ok moving on. Just really naive. Full disclosure- I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Journey to Territory U is the third, and final book, in a series by L. J. Epps (Extinction of All Children and Journey to Territory M). These stories are for young adult readers and resemble (somewhat) The Hunger Games. I found this story slow at times and edge of your seat at others. I was given a copy to review.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is great ending to the trilogy. All of my questions were answered with a fast paced plot and some predictable twists Although the plot is interesting, I felt the book needed a few more rounds of revisions to make it really shine.

    Great trilogy Really enjoyed Emmas journey through the territories and the twists and turns in her and her friends stories. Scary to see how easily a society like this could come about

    Great series Wasn't sure I would like this book but the author did a great job with characters and descriptions. I was pleased to have read the entire series and would recommend it highly.
