My Review
Thoughts on the book: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS
The Trap has been sitting in my TBR pile for awhile now and I finally picked it up and finished the trilogy that I started so long ago. So it has been properly well over a year since I read book 1&2 in this trilogy so I kind of struggled at the start remembering what had previously happened (I couldn't reread the first two books as I have way too many books in my TBR piles), once I remembered what was going on it made a whole lot more sense.
So as I'm pretty sure I mentioned in my reviews for the first two books I really struggled to read them but persisted because I liked the idea that he had created with the heapers. Well I am happy to report that I absolutely loved The Trap. It was highly addictive and thrilling all the way through and was unable to put it down at times (which meant my housework suffered a lot). I really enjoyed the main characters of Gene and Sissy and also seeing Ashley June again. I loved the back story that we received about Ashley June and from there we could understand a lot more of what had and was happening.
There were so many moments that I really enjoyed during the book but I think by far my favourite part was when Sissy and Gene went into the city and we got to see how hard it was for someone who had never been around so many heapers to act like one and not become noticeable. Of course we knew Ashley June and Gene could do it but it was a whole other ball game for Sissy and she did so well.  Then there was also the moment where both Sissy and Gene turned to save themselves. I really liked the author doing this so we got to see what it was like to be a Heaper but am so glad that they turned back as well. And of course we can't forget the ending. To say it was an epic ending is not doing it justice. All the lose ends that we had are neatly tied up and presented gift wrapped at the end so we are left very satisfied. 

Favourite character: I think in this book it would defiantly be Sissy. For the simple fact that she went into a city where she knew she would more than likely die but still went to be with the person that she loved. She faced a lot of her biggest fears and overcame so many of them in a short amount of time and when she was turned she never forgot about who she was and what needed to be accomplished. She never let go of her humanity and never stopped trying to save the people that she loved and cared for.

Rating: 5/5
