"Nothing is as it seems in Wayward Pines"

Fresh Fiction Review

The Last Town
Blake Crouch

Reviewed by Shellie Surles
Posted July 6, 2014

Suspense | Mystery

THE LAST TOWN is book three of the Wayward Pines series. Secret Service agent Ethan Burk arrived in Wayward Pines, Idaho searching for his partner. What he discovered was a town where people were told who to marry, where to work, and how to behave. In the previous book Ethan discovered the truth about the town and informed the town's members. Now all hell has broken lose as the ruler of the town seeks revenge. The people of the town fight to survive any way they can and Ethan must not only save his family but discover a way to save mankind.

THE LAST TOWN is book three and I had not read the previous two but thoroughly enjoyed this story. THE LAST TOWN and other books in the series are being adapted to a television series Wayward Pines that starts on FOX this fall. If the television show is half as exciting as the book it should be good.

Nonstop action and a very interesting concept about the future of mankind make THE LAST TOWN an excellent read. Blake Crouch has created a world that makes you wonder if you would risk all for the continuation of our species. You have to wonder at the horrible actions of the town creator no matter what his purpose.

I highly recommend THE LAST TOWN but think it would have even been better if I had read the first two and enjoyed the build up to the final installment. THE LAST TOWN an alluring look into how the multination of humanity takes away our humanity no matter the reasoning behind it. Blake Crouch has created a thought provoking world in THE LAST TOWN and it is well worth the read.

Learn more about The Last Town


Welcome to Wayward Pines, the last town.

Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrived in Wayward Pines, Idaho, three weeks ago. In this town, people are told who to marry, where to live, where to work. Their children are taught that David Pilcher, the town’s creator, is god. No one is allowed to leave; even asking questions can get you killed.

But Ethan has discovered the astonishing secret of what lies beyond the electrified fence that surrounds Wayward Pines and protects it from the terrifying world beyond. It is a secret that has the entire population completely under the control of a madman and his army of followers, a secret that is about to come storming through the fence to wipe out this last, fragile remnant of humanity.

Blake Crouch’s electrifying conclusion to the Wayward Pines Series—now a Major Television Event Series debuting Summer 2014 on FOX—will have you glued to the page right down to the very last word.
