Review of No Vain Loss by MC Frank

A soldier is summoned to the North Pole, days before the year changes, told to fix the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do.
A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an ice shack.
The world hasn't known hunger or sickness in hundreds of years. It has also forgotten love and beauty.
This is the One World.
The year is 2524.

Inspired by the short stories of Ray Bradbury, this futuristic young adult novel in three parts is set in a world where Christmas -among other things- is obsolete and a Clock is what keeps the fragile balance of peace.

Written in three parts, this is the breathtaking story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other, one book at a time.
In No Vain Loss, the world is on the brink of the greatest war humanity has ever known. Lives will be lost. New truths will be revealed.

My Review: 5 stars
And the final book in the trilogy, wow, just amazing! Loved the storytelling, loved the way that even as a short book, the words all counted. There was nothing that seemed wasted or taken away from the story. It is a brilliant trilogy and an amazing ending. You're there on the edge of your seat, hoping and wishing that Astra and Felix will have their happy ever after and so many plot twists that make you start to really root for them. I loved this series from start to finish and I loved this book. Overall, I'd give it more than 5 stars is I could! Highly recommended!
