This is the review for part 3 in the Off World trilogy, to read the review for part 2 please visit here.
Thank you so much to author Dave Terruso for providing me with a copy of his book in exchange for this honest review.
Off World Hotel & Resort: Episode 3 is a direct continuation from the cliffhanger ending of episode 2. To discuss episode 3 at all I need to start off with a spoiler, I’m sorry, I don’t know how else to do it.
If you want absolutely zero spoilers I’ll just tell you here that the ending is spectacular. It is highy unlikely that you will have figured out each mystery point but you will not feel like a twist was forced out of nowhere. The ending is highly satisfying and on the right day might really touch you in the emotions. The journey through episode 3 to get the answers is entertaining and maintains the strong pace set by the other two books.
Also know that it would be foolish to pick this series up and only read episode 1. The story is told in 3 parts and was designed that way for a reason. Please read this whole series!
You can now stop reading if you’re avoiding spoilers, just skip to the bottom for where to pick up the last book.
Some spoilers ahead (I’ll try to keep it as vague as possible)
The end of Episode 2 leaves our protagonist Christie alone in her bed at peace with the fact that she just poisoned herself and the woman that she believed trapped her on this moon. She is prepared to die.
Then she wakes up. She’s alarmed, relieved, confused, and worried about how and why she lived through the night. Now you see why I have to talk in spoilers. I can’t very well talk about Christie doing anything without spoiling the fact that she lived!
Episode 3 continues to follow Christie as she attempts to figure out what the heck this resort really is. Things begin to feel far more sinister the deeper she investigates. Christie’s own behavior even becomes darker and more extreme as she becomes more desperate for answers.
And answers she will get! Big huge answers that she never expected or even thought about! The ending of Off World Hotel & Resort: Episode 3 will answer any questions readers may have had throughout the series. Author Terruso somehow manages to do this without it reading like a pedantic wrap up. He reaches a tidy conclusion without sacrificing a natural flow to the storytelling.
We are also treated to about as happy of an ending as we could hope for. This is, of course, taking into consideration that this is a story about a woman who is dying. This could lead to any number of deaths or even a miraculous recovery for Christie. Terruso found the best possible outcome for this story that doesn’t simulataneously undo everything that happened prior. He has a habit in his writing of respecting the reader enough to know that they can handle emotions and are actually looking for them in literature.
I would love to discuss the climactic reveal with some other readers. Please let me know when you’ve read through the entire Off World and give me all of your thoughts!
I’ve been recommending all of Terruso’s work since nearly the beginning of my site. He continues to impress and astonish and every single one of you should pick up something, anything from his collection. The entire Off World Hotel & Resort trilogy probably has the most mass appeal out of any of his works so it’s a wonderful place to start discovering this author.
