Summary (from Amazon):
The Program has sent Boy Nobody on countless missions, instructed to kill whichever target he was given. But now, after going rogue, he is on his own mission to rescue his friend Howard, who was captured by The Program.
Boy Nobody manages to free Howard as well as Tanya, a mysterious girl who was being held with him. Putting their skills to the test, Howard and Tanya help Boy Nobody collect information about his father, eventually revealing a dangerous secret that teaches Boy Nobody a valuable lesson — he can’t trust anyone.
On the run from The Program, Boy Nobody must face his past, as he’s forced to decide where his loyalties lie.
My Review (may contain spoilers!):
I have to say that this was a satisfying ending to the trilogy. I want more, but then the series would just be dragging on.
Zach saves his friend Howard from The Program and also an unexpected prisoner: Tanya. Zach doesn’t know what to make of her, but he allows her to tag along anyway.
Judging how the first two novels went, I wasn’t sure what to make of Tanya. Was she good? Was she bad? Was she going to live?
I was happy with the way things turned out; especially since I liked Tanya.
Point one for Zadoff; he created some strong female characters who could hold their own. I was impressed with that. You don’t see that too much these days.
This final installment was action-packed from start to finish as it picked up right where book two ended. The ending was not certainly something I expected. I felt like I should have seen it coming, but I didn’t; which is a good thing.
The ending was sort of a cliff-hanger, but not in a suspenseful way. It was more left as an imaginative way. You have a feeling where the characters will go from there, but it’s left to your imagination. You just know that they all got a happy ending.
I Am the Traitor by Allen Zadoff gets 5 out of 5 stars.
“Women. There’s not a lot of information about them in the training manual.” –Allen Zadoff, I Am the Traitor
