The Catalyst is the final book (book three) in The Black Table series and finishes Gus and John’s story. Unity’s crew is still stuck in the past, unsure how to get home when they realize Swarm and the Breathers are everywhere. Meeting new friends, they learn about a mysterious weapon that may be the key to their problems. The only problem is they need to get it and figure out how to use it before the solar system is wiped out.
I have never been able to wrap my mind around time travel, and there is a lot of it in this series, but I still loved these books. The author takes time to explain the ‘sciency stuff’ in plain, short language.
At one point in the book (don’t worry, no spoilers), I was left gasping at what the author did! I couldn’t believe it would come down to that, but I was happy with how it worked out. The way everything was interconnected brought the books full circle.
This final installment is the perfect ending for all the characters we have come to know. The characters were given the ending they deserved, whether they were the bad guys or the good guys. The entire trilogy has been a fun read, and as a reader, I was delighted with how the author wrapped it all together.
If you like sci-fi, I highly suggest reading this series (in order).
