Agent Sam Ryan is sick of feeling lonely. It's time to take control and get a life outside of work. But Stephan, her boss, won't let her go easily. Offered the choice between guarding a clone, or remaining stuck in her office, Sam reluctantly accepts the former, even though she suspects Stephan is using her as bait to draw out the dangerous Sethanon. Gabriel is relieved to discover he's finally shaken Sam as his partner, until he learns her new assignment is guarding Wetherton. He and Stephan know Wetherton could only have come from Hopeworth, the base involved in DNA experiments for decades, where it is more than likely that Sam was created. But there is a growing likelihood that the military base is also the home of Sethanon himself. Gabriel is determined to protect her, yet all too soon he discovers the connection between he and Sam is far deeper than anyone could ever have imagined.… (mais)

Penumbra is the third and final book in the Spook Squad series by Keri Arthur. This one answered many questions, but also leaves us with a few things left to be discovered. It’s another fast-paced and action-packed adventure.

I was eager to get into this third novel after finishing the second. I’m sad this is the last volume; because their is more to be discovered and flushed out even though many of our questions about Sam’s past and Sam in general get answered, the author leaves possibilities open to add more books.

Sam realizes she isn’t happy and even more alone and finally decides to apply for a transfer. Stephan doesn’t agree and offers her a solo mission. Gabriel has mixed feelings about this, even though he’s wanted Sam out of his life from the start, and well he gets what he wants; in the end ending up with a new partner and a mission of his own.

The mystery missions both Sam and Gabriel have to take on where intriguing to say the least. I liked seeing Sam on her own, she becomes more confident and dives into her strengths and weakness. She is starting to dream of her past or is she? She is also starting to have a life of her own and moving on. I think this time apart from Gabriel was good for both. And to see Sam struggle with the dreams, the mysterious Joe, and that she is/or might be a creation of Hopeworth added to the story and intrigue.

We get to meet Gabrie’s new partner Illie, who is funny and fresh and it’s only naturally to like him. We also finally get answers to many of our questions. We learn the truth about Sam, her past, her relationship with Gabriel, her relationship with Joe, and her origins. I loved seeing the evolution of her powers as a young woman and discovering what she really was and can do.

As for the romance, which I’ve been saying was nothing, is now coming into play. They have had this instant attraction, but Gabriel has fought it tooth and nail. Sam has tried to break down the barriers he put up, but to no avail and so, she's deiced to move on, yet Gabriel isn’t happy about this and so we see a change in him and by the end they are tentatively together.

As for ending the novel. The epilogue was perfect, but ending the series well we are left with the knowledge that a war is coming. These first three novels in the series introduced the world and characters fabulous. I’m sorry we don’t have any more in the Spook Squad and I hope one day the author will come back to the series, because I still have questions and want more of these fabulously interesting characters.

To sum up this was an amazing trilogy although I may never know what happens afterwards. I still cherished the novels and the adventure.

Rated: 4 Stars

Probably the best book of the series in terms of writing - and then the series is over with more lose threads than I can count. Maybe there's another connected series? Ended up left with, "Wait, what?" And mild irritation that I devoted the time, but the individual components are nice. ( )

We get to learn a lot more about where Sam came from and who she is.

took me a few pages to get into: I've never read Keri Arthur before so jumping into this series with book three was probably not the best choice. Still it was a good read and it was nice to read some urban fantasy set in a city I know (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia). While there is a romance theme it wasn't the main gist of the story - more like a subplot - and the story itself is somewhat unresolved at the end; I kinda want to know what happens next but not enough to hunt out the next book - but if I come across it on a sale table I will definitely pick it up. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. ( )

PENUMBRA continues the quick pacing and action of the previous two books in this series. I liked figuring out just exactly what Sam is and how she fits into the vast network of government clones running amok around the world. I loved discovering Sam's powers along with her and how she learns about them was fascinating. This series storyline with an almost never ending rabbit hole of discoveries about just what the government has been doing in regards to human cloning reminded me of the television show Orphan Black which is all about clones and government cover ups. Since I adore Orphan Black you can bet I loved the premise of this series and had fun figuring out where the story was going and what new types of government craziness was going to be uncovered.

The characters are all fun and very well developed. The relationship between Gabriel and Sam as I understand was supposed to be a romance of some sort yet I really didn't feel anything romantic between them. They kept butting heads with Gabriel pushing Sam away and acting like a jerk as Sam attempts to flirt with him unsuccessfully. It got to the point that it became really annoying to have to read. I kind of didn't want them to get together and really they didn't which worked out for my hopes I guess.

The big issue I had with PENUMBRA was the fact that the ending just fizzled out. From what I understand there was supposed to be a fourth book that didn't happen for some reason which explains the random ending to this series. I loved the worldbuilding and storyline of PENUMBRA. The ending and the relationship between Sam and Gabriel were unfortunate downsides to an otherwise great book. ( )
