ARV-3 is a novel that starts without much preparation and you will be captivated by the moments of tensions and action even if the story is not filled with terrifying descriptions or sprinkled with grotesque images that are characteristic to apocalyptic genre. A book that brings sensitivity, but also force through the fight scenes that are not few. The author will enjoy you with her concise (in a good way), very visual and engaging style that will go directly to your heart. There will be something for everybody. - GZM,Mythical Books

The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse.
A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild.
We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong.
Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter.
It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.
My name is Abigail Park. I’m seventeen, and this is my story.
The Arvy threat worsens each day. They continue to destroy the hives vital fuel resources, leaving us with one option—evacuate to the largest government bunker, located in South Dakota.
The injured hive members are moved as first priority, but a disastrous even occurs on the way to our drop-off zone. We find ourselves in a ghost town, surrounded by spiteful, revenge-filled Arvies. Chaos ensues and our death toll rises. Just when we think the end has come, unsuspected help arrives. We are rescued and brought to an underground bunker.
They call it Sanctum.
With no way of reaching outside help, we must depend on each other to reach our pick-up zone, thirty miles away. If we don’t make it in time, we will be left for dead.
Time is ticking.
My name is Abigail Park. I am a survivor.
"I have only one word to say, WOW!! I am a mess, red puffy eyes and runny nose. So emotional over one particular scene that hit me out of nowhere. I did not see it coming and I totally cried my eyes out. I might lose my mind waiting for the next book to come out." - Tina, Goodreads
Arriving at the new government bunker, things quickly go from bad to worse. I am separated from Finn and my family because of my ability to connect with Arvies through telepathy. Housed with three other Readers—and kept away from the general population—we are given serum injections in effort to enhance our thought transference. The end goal? Thought manipulation.
We are considered humanity’s only hope in the war against the Arvy race.
With the ever growing threat of an invasion, the government demands results from the Reader program by doling out ultimatums, and using our loved ones against us.
But they will not break me.
My name is Abigail Park. I am intransigent.
"So, good dystopian premise, fantastic characters, and great romance-this book has all that. It was less than a one day read for me because it is a total page turner. By now the characters are like old friends and I am just catching up with all of them while reading-always a good thing!" - Lorna, Goodreads
Wanted. It’s something I’ve had to get used to since being placed on the government’s Most Wanted list. On the run, with my family and Finn by my side, we now have to evade not only the Arvies, but teams of soldiers sent to find and capture me.
Little do they know, I’m battling my own demons. After the receiving large doses of mind-enhancing serum, a monster has been unleashed inside my mind. It promises death and destruction; its power, greater than anything I could imagine. Now, I’m too dangerous, and the lives of my loved ones depend on my separation from the group. I must leave and face the hostile world alone.
My name is Abigail Park. I will do whatever it takes to save the ones I love.
"Hope and Hellfire – What a combination!There are a lot of books and movies out there about existence after the Apocalypse. One thing they usually have in common is the struggle for those who survived the fallout to stay alive, some of the survivors no longer close to anything that resembles a human being. What I like about this book is the author follows that theme but puts a deeper emotional spin on the story." - Anne, Goodreads
War is coming between humans and Arvies, leaving me trapped between two enemies. This time, I don’t think I’ll survive.
The government will stop at nothing to get me back in their clutches. They want what’s inside me—a power I call Venge—and will use my greatest weakness to bring me to my knees.
The Arvies know of my gift, and use my telepathy and their numbers, in an effort to take me out.
My name is Abigail Park, and I promise retribution against those who’ve wronged me, even if it’s the last thing I do.
"Going out with a bang! The last book in a series is always hard, and they are either absolutely perfect and amazing, or they are a huge disappointment leaving you wanting. Retribution is an absolute masterpiece of perfection!! It is everything we have loved about this series, and then vaulted to excellence, just like Abi Park." - Cheree, Goodreads
