Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness

Megan LOVES this series and I can't wait to read this, especially having read her fabulous review.

This is the third and final book of the Chaos Walking trilogy, which begins with the absolutely stunning The Knife of Never Letting Go (and if you haven't read that, you're missing out on one of the most thrilling books I've read in the past few years). It picks up the cruelly tantalizing cliff hanger of the second book and immediately plunges into the tightly wound stories of Todd and Viola, who are in the middle of a bloody, terrible war that could destroy the entire world. Their world is a strange one - people hear each other's thoughts, enemies are sometimes their only hope, colonists are arriving from outer space - and Todd and Viola must struggle together to save it.

I can't recommend this series highly enough. It is addictive and brilliant. You will find yourself disappearing into its pages. If you liked The Hunger Games, you really need to try this.
