    Thank you to the publisher for an eARC of this book. Although I knew this was the last book in the series, there was a part of me that had a very hard time accepting there wasn't a cliffhanger waiting for at the end of this book, and I wouldn't have to impatiently wait for the next book in the series. I was very satisfied with Thrive and how it concluded the story of this invasion of Earth.

I don't want to say too much about the details in this story to avoid spoilers, but I will say the author deserves all the recognition he receives for an engaging, science fiction adventure that will appeal to older middle grade readers. This is the first time I've read a middle grade book with the gender inclusive pronounces em/eir, and I appreciate how they were used in this story. I look forward to the day when they are as commonplace as other pronouns. I highly recommend this series, and hope it gets the readership it deserves despite all three books being released during the pandemic.

    Decent ending to the Overthrow trilogy. These would make for a really nifty Amazon or Netflix series.

    I loved this trilogy so much, it's everything you could ask for in a middle grade! It does get mildly gory, but there are also tons of important issues woven into the story! Also a character uses ze/zir pronouns which was really cool to see. Kenneth Oppel never fails!!! I loved this trilogy so much, it's everything you could ask for in a middle grade!

The rebels, aliens who don't necessarily want to suck out all the humans' brains, are working with the children and their adult scientist mentors to formulate a plan to keep the invasion at bay. Anaya is telepathically communicating and working with a swimmer (who uses gender neutral pronouns), and Petra with a runner named Terra. Seth is distraught that Esta is being held with the other hybrids and might be charged with murder, in which he feels complicit. The ship that the alien rebels arrived on was badly damaged, so everyone is trying to find other downed ships that could be stripped for parts in order to make repairs. The best way to defeat the aliens seems to be to introduce a mutation into their bodies that turns the sounds they make against them, and combining this with a virus in rain to lower the aliens' immune system response will make it work faster. Things, of course, do not go smoothly. Seth runs into many problems when he is trying to save Esta, and the method of wiping out the flyers hits a lot of snags. The hybrid children also have to deal with the fact that their bodies have changed, and it's not easy living with a tail with a poisonous tip, feathered arms, or a body newly covered in fur. Will the hybrids, rebel aliens, and scientists be able to save the world from eminent takeover? Strengths: For most of the book, I did NOT think it would be possible to save the world! We don't see a lot of the alien strategy in this book, but they had a solid start with sending the evil grass and ground worms to colonize the planet and sow destruction. The fact that the hybrids are teens saving the world, and they have the help of rebel aliens is a great device. There's plenty of action: flying, fighting, running, and generally surviving in a world gone mad. Having a three book set is perfect, the covers are fantastic, and the dystopian world and its inhabitants are beautifully developed. Weaknesses: It always seemed like such a long shot that Earth would prevail, so the ending felt a tiny bit deus ex machina. I wish that some of the environmental message in the final chapters had been seeded more throughout the books. What I really think: This might be one of my favorite new series. The books all came out in about a year (no small feat, I understand, but when a sequel comes out 12 years after the first book... the kids interested originally are all gone and the books are worn out!), is a genre that has a small but loyal following, and is structurally sound in plot, characters, and message. Feel like I need to buy two sets just in case, but probably won't.

A great series I will certainly be adding to my school library and talking up for many years.

    This was a great ending to this trilogy. I really liked the way this series went. I enjoyed the environmental message, but I really liked that it wasn’t overly heavy handed. It felt like it fit into the book without being overwhelming. I liked that the ending was wrapped up nicely, but also talked about the future that needed to happen in the world, what needed to happen after.

    This final book in the series starts where right where book two ended, and the action continues non-stop from there. The series wraps up well, showing the earth and the characters moving on from the invasion. But I found myself still longing to know more about Anaya, Petra and Seth and the rest of their lives: a sign of a great book! The whole series is highly recommended for Middle Grade readers who like action, adventure and science fiction. Review based on an ARC received through NetGalley.

    The survival of earth is dependent on three teenage hybrids. It is what they believe and who they trust that will determine if we as humans will live or die.

Terra needs to extract the genetic code for a virus that the rebels hid in the DNA of the hybrid children to help defeat the oppressive flyers. Anaya, Petra, and Seth are still changing, physically and mentally, and recovering from their ordeal in the bunker. Their powers continue to develop similarly to their cryptogen models. The teenage hybrids are essential to saving the Earth. Thrive was a very satisfying end to this sci-fi trilogy. Like the previous two, it is fast-paced and action-packed! Although I am sad that this was the last book, I highly recommend it. #Thrive #NetGalley #HarperCollins

    In this conclusion to the trilogy, we finally get to understand the plot to take over the world. We revisit Seth, Anaya, and Petra as they learn to accept their new powers and step into their roles with the government. It was exactly what I wanted in the conclusion (no cliffhangers here!). I was also really impressed by the easiness of gender inclusive terms for one of the characters. It wasn't preachy or overly explained - just commonplace.

    Better than the previous one, but still light on character development. I liked Esta: her position was very understandable (& ultimately correct, since she was attacked, yet again, by humans). I appreciated that Seth continued to love her, but their story was not fleshed out enough. Ultimately, this is a forgettable series, especially compared to the vastly superior "AirBorn" (which introduced me to Oppel's writing).

    What a PHENOMENAL series! Each book held its own and I loved the conclusion. It’s a classic sci-fi alien invasion but with so much more depth through the character development. It’s about accepting oneself no matter your differences and even if others don’t fully accept who you are, find your people, those who love you no matter what.

    This was a wild ending- nonstop action- Who do you trust? How are they going to survive? If they do, how will Earth ever recover? As a reader you are constantly concerned for the characters. This trilogy would rival Hunger Games on screen. I hope someone translates this trilogy to a movie script. It was so crazy it was hard( in a good way) to visualize.

    This is a good YA series that explores the theme of climate change & what would happen if our planet was invaded by a species who wanted to make Earth habitable for them & what that would look like for humans. At times, the teen drama aspects of the story annoyed me for for the most part, I enjoyed this book & the other 2 that make up the trilogy.

    Great ending to a 5 star series - love how Oppel wraps it up! Lots of battle and fight scenes, a few exploding heads for the fans who like their sci fi with some gore. Great descriptions for the otherworldly alien things, like an action movie in my brain. Sophie Amoss does bang up job on narration.

    A great middle school trilogy I will be recommending to our students. Sci/Fi, suspense, adventure, a little horror and romance thrown in. A big plus was that all three books were available within a little over a year so not a lot of waiting for the next title. My older brain appreciates that!

    This third and final book in the Overthrown series is just as well-written as its two predecessors. It’s action-packed, detailed, complicated, emotional, and has everything you’d want in the conclusion of this unique series.

    With house guests I couldn't just sit down and read this book from cover to cover like I did the first two in the series. Disrupting the flow meant that I wasn't as absorbed in the story and that on edge feeling that permeated those first two, didn't get a hold on me this time. I still loved it, but would have enjoyed it more without having to stop and start. I didn't begrudge spending time with my grandson, but it was close.

Like the first two, this one is full of worry and fear for the three protagonists, Anaya, Petra, and Seth. The different messages from different alien factions have Seth questioning who to believe. On the one hand the captain of the ship he's been brought to has given him the capacity to fly. On the other, rebel forces warn him not to trust him.

    Volume 3 in the Overthrow trilogy finds hybrid human/cryptogens Anaya (the runner), Seth (the flyer), and Petra (the swimmer), trying desperately to stop the imminent alien invasion with the help of alien rebels. A satisfying conclusion to the trilogy but not a stand-alone volume.

    Not my favorite end to a trilogy ever, but what a thrilling series in total. I loved every single character in this novel because they felt so real. The ending felt a little lackluster, but also like there's room for another set of stories if he wants to continue the series.
