A new battle has begun, and the struggle to survive is not only for Eden but for the fate of all life on Earth
Once divided, the Elikai and Varekai tribes have unified. Now called Kai, they've come to look beyond rebuilding their world to secure a life for the new Children of Eden. For the tribe leaders, there is another way to protect the future: revisit the past.
In unearthing their origins as a people, in learning the truth behind the cataclysm that wiped out most of the world's population, the few survivors will discover the very reason for their existence.
They've never been more united—or more vulnerable to a new enemy. Their once-peaceful archipelago is now under threat from an army of outsiders with their own unfathomable purpose.
The desperate families of Kai must make it back to the mainland. Before their dream of Eden mutates into a nightmare.

THIRD WAVE is the final story in Zaide Bishop's Bones of Eden series and FINALLY, the Elikai and Varekai are united together as Kai. They have to. The new Children of Eden must be protected. As a means to do so, the tribal leaders, Sugar, Xicara, Tango, and Charlie, agree that in order to protect their young and build a future for them, they have to revisit their past, which mean returning to Eden.
This is where many of the questions that have been brewing, if you've been reading the series, will be answered. And since this is a post-apocalyptic dystopian story, it wouldn't be interesting unless there were new monsters to conquer.
Likes: The descriptions of the Elikai's first drop into the real world was fantastic. When two of the Varekai are pregnant, I couldn't help giggling at their speculation of how many babies would be born. The imagery from stories one until now have gotten so much better. It's a long example, but I love it: "Polite sidewalk trees had gone savage, and every crack in the concrete was host to weeds and grasses. Small trees pushed the cracks wider, opening splitting wounds in the order of the world before. Greenery had taken root in buildings and reached out of shattered windows, half starved, half dehydrated, but still straining for life."
This was an exhausting series for me. So much up and down emotionally. Just when you think everything will be for the better, a new monster (problem) snaps its ugly jaws at the children of Eden. The one spoiler I will give is that there is a happy ending. I can't say that it's a HEA but the children of Eden did finally grow up and unite as Kai.

5 stunning stars for the conclusion of the Bones of Eden series, THIRD WAVE!
With a few pregnant Varekai, both their tribe and the male Elikai tribe have combined into just Kai, and are anxiously awaiting their litters. The tribe has no idea what they're doing when it comes to birthing their babies, so it falls to the leaders to make the journey back to Eden, back to the shell that was once their home, to see if they can find some answers. The extreme danger on their trip is fully unexpected, and so are the other strangers that threaten their family. The Kai will be in for the fight of their lives if they're to have any chance of survival. And the odds aren't good that they'll all make it out alive.
THIRD WAVE, the third and final book in the Bones of Eden series, was PHENOMENAL. I thought I understood what Eden was about, but the revelations in this book knocked me on my ass, as did the unexpected visitors to the tribe's world. I was so exhausted, but stayed up until 4am so I could squeeze just onemorepage in before work the next day!! This book was so descriptive, from the feel of the waves over your body to the sadness of dealing with motherless cubs, I got totally immersed in the breathless world that Ms. Bishop created! This book had some editing issues (like calling a child by its name before it had been named), but that didn't detract from my enjoyment. I wholeheartedly recommend this series to anyone looking for something unique, sexy and all around breathtaking.
Bottom Line: No OM, OW, yummy variety of sex (MM, MF, MMF), no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; violence/murder. This book isn't a contemporary story so none of the typical rules really apply.
