After escaping Lengard and finding sanctuary with the Remnants, Alyssa Scott is desperate to save those she left behind ─ and the rest of the world ─ from the power-hungry scientist, Kendall Vanik. But secrets and lies block her at every turn, and soon Lyss is left questioning everything she has ever believed.
When long-lost memories begin to surface and the mysteries of her past continue to grow, Lyss battles to retain her hard-won control. Allies become enemies and enemies become allies, leaving her certain about only two things: when it comes to Speakers, nothing is ever as it seems… and the only person she can trust is herself.
Rating: 5/5 stars

Okay, okay, okay. So Whisper was one of my absolute most favourite books of last year. I got to read an advanced reader copy as a read now on Net Galley, and I absolutely loved it. It was the first Lynette Noni book I had ever read (I do now own The Medoran Chronicles, even if I haven’t read them yet – soon, I will get there soon!).
So when I was given an early copy of Weapon. Well, I’m positive that only dogs could have heard the high-pitched squeal that came from me.
Weapon picks up immediately where Whisper ended, and even though the book is only set over the course of three days, a lot happens. And I mean a lot.
I don’t want to go into too much detail for spoiler-y reasons, as the book only came out on the 5th. But there is a lot that happens. So many questions were answered, and so many more were created, but thankfully, every single question was answered within the span of this novel.
I am a little disappointed that this is the end of what I had hoped to be an incredible series. I wish that there had been another 50 pages at the end to tie up what I feel like were loose ends, but on the whole, this story lived up to the hype I had created in my mind, which I am eternally grateful for.
An easy 5/5 stars from me.
