5.0 out of 5 stars A great end to the series 2 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! I think this wraps up the Solid trilogy perfectly. Though I have to admit that those looking for a cut and dry answer to every question will find themselves at a loss, though for me I found that this series wasn't about knowing everything and this makes it much more realistic as in life we never really get all the answers to everything we face.

What I found particularly fascinating is the difference between the lessons that are learned in this book compared to some others. Often you get the main characters forced to do the right thing even if it hurts people, in this Clio is encouraged to do the opposite in more than one situation. Even when she knows that she should push issues, she slowly learns to back down so as to let things unravel at there own pace. I love a book with a different take on life; there are far too many cliche stories out there.
The fact is people aren't polished and perfect and it's great to see a bunch of characters who mess up as much as your average person.

I loved the chemistry between Clio and Jack and it was great seeing how there relationship developed. It got me thinking...what would it be like to have a clean slate with someone you thought you'd messed up with? I think We'd all love that. For those who have missed Bliss, Miranda and Co they are all back and it was like meeting up with old friends again after a long time apart. I love Bliss to bits and even Miranda got my attention with her softer side in this installment rather than her confronting attitude and I loved seeing her love struck.

The ending really grabbed my attention with it's suddenness and excitement and I read the last few chapters so fast they flew by...but that epilogue! Why? It's killing me and I really want to know what will come of those last few pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review Of Sound (Solid Series Book #3) By Shelley Workinger 12 Oct 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I must say Shelley wrote one heck of a series. I devoured each book and longed for more. Sound is a great ending to her series and she has made a fan out of me for life. Sound, like the rest of the series, was so hard to put down. Her characters are so relatable and full of layers.

Clio is living with the consequence of her actions from book two at the start of Sound. Her friendships have become fractured and she doesn't know how to fix it. Rae, Xavier, and Alexis are her only source of comfort. Bliss, Miranda, and Garrett have yet to forgive her while Jack doesn't even remember much of anything. But, like any great friendship, the gang slowly comes around and reunites. To celebrate the end of summer and the up coming school year the military tells the whole "camp" that they get to pick one of four outings. They can choose from a baseball game, a Broadway play, a concert, or the Planetarium. But when you are a kid with super-human abilities nothing ever goes according to plan. All four outings have a similar event happen which kicks them into action. Once back a "camp' Clio seems to be the only one truly concerned about what has happened which starts Clio on her "Harriet The Spy" mission.

I can't really say much more without ruining the story for everybody. Even though Sound is the end to the Solid Trilogy, I can't help feeling that Shelley left the door open a crack to possibly a book 4 or a spin-off series (which in my opinion would be AWESOME). On a scale from 1-10 I give Sound a 10. It is a great ending to a series while leaving just enough room for possibly more. If you loved Solid and/or Settling then you really need to pick up a copy of Solid. If you haven't read either than you really need to get moving and buy all three books in the Solid Trilogy. Delve right into the world of C9X and the Military cover up that follows. Let Clio show you how to disappear into her world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Conclusion. 27 Nov 2012
By Nicole's YA Book Haven - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I adore the Solid series by Shelley Workinger, so I'm naturally sad to see it end, but if that epilogue is any indicator, there's still more to be told.

The Solid series has followed Clio Kaid, one of one-hundred children with super-abilities who have been called to a top-secret Army base for research. In Solid and Settling, Clio and her friends find themselves having to fight for their lives. This book is a bit different. Sure, there is a showdown of sorts, but this is more of an emotional journey of a book. Clio finally finds herself in Sound, and yes, she reconnects with Jack (they are actually a cute fictional couple so that made me happy).

There were times where I wanted to scream at Clio, but she had to learn from her mistakes. She has to grow and figure out who she is and who she wants to be, and Workinger develops Clio wonderfully throughout Sound.

Even though I loved Sound, I have to say that the epilogue killed me. I need to know where Workinger is planning on taking this series because holy crap.

I say this time and time again, but this series just doesn't get enough love. It is a terrific self-published series that readers can easily devour within a day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this the end? 8 Oct 2012
By Marcella - Published on
Sound is the third and final book of the Solid Trilogy by Shelley Workinger. The journey of Clio Kaid is coming to an end, and I have to admit I'm a little sad. In the first book, Solid, we found out about Clio's power and her struggle with it. The second book, Settling, is full of tension and growing pains. In the final book, Sound, Clio must own up to her mistakes and learn to trust herself. The beginning of the book is sorta rocky because Clio has some apologizing to do, as well as forgiving. The gang: Rae, Bliss, Jack, and Xavier, are all back together and excited to spend their senior year together. To celebrate, the school allows the kids to go to a really cool outing of their choice. While out and about the kids experience what seems to be a random situation. Nobody thinks much of it except for Clio. However Clio doesn't know if she's being overly cautious or just plain paranoid.
Sound is a good book to finish up this trilogy. I would have liked it to have a little more action in it, but it was still good. I feel as if I've traveled with Clio throughout this trilogy. And I'm sad to see it end. I think Shelley Workinger did a great job of ending this series. She gives a little tidbit at the end that makes me wonder if there is going to be a spin-off. A girl can hope.

4.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying conclusion to the Solid trilogy 3 Oct 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I have stuck with the Solid trilogy since the beginning and I'm glad that I did. Shelley Workinger's debut young adult series is a unique story that tons of readers will enjoy.

Sound starts off right where Settling left off and it doesn't take long to get back into Clio's story. She made a mess of things at the end of Settling and things are still pretty bad for her. Her friends don't want anything to do with her and she doesn't know how to make things better. However it doesn't take long for her to realize that she doesn't like being alone and she's willing to do anything to restore her friendships. Clio really grows as a person throughout this book. She realizes her mistakes and she takes steps to fix them. She's not too proud to admit when she is in the wrong. Sure she still has flaws (she's a little pushy and nagging) but the good things about her far outweigh the bad.

The rest of the characters help make Clio a better person. Her friends are completely fabulous. I wasn't really impressed with them in the beginning since they dropped Clio for a rather petty reason but they also grew throughout the story. They helped mend their friendships with Clio and their relationships seemed stronger for it afterward. My only issue with the friends were the girls. Rae, Alexis, Bliss, and Miranda didn't have distinct enough personalities. I kept getting confused about which one was which. I wish they had been a little bit more developed so that they would have been easier to tell apart. The guys, on the other hand, were distinct and easy to differentiate. They really made me laugh throughout the book.

The plot was a bit lackluster. The first half of the book didn't seem to go anywhere and I found myself getting distracted while reading it. There just wasn't enough going on to hold my interest in the story. Things did pick up in the end but I felt that it was very rushed and too predictable. I guessed who the villain was in the very beginning. There was no real mystery to this book.

My biggest issue was the ending. Things weren't really resolved. Questions were left unanswered and the epilogue left me really confused. This is supposed to be the final book in the trilogy but the epilogue opened everything up for more. I felt that the story would have been better without the epilogue. But hey, maybe there will be a spin-off series continuing the story?

Overall, Sound wasn't a completely satisfying ending but I still enjoyed it. I'm happy with where the characters were at the end and there was enough closure to the story to please me. If you haven't yet you should really check out this series.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Reading the Paranormal Review 16 Feb 2013
By Kelly Rubidoux - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
A[...] It's kind of sad to see Clio's story come to an end. This book was more about Clio reconnecting with her friends and accepting how she fits in with those around her than anything else. Yes, there was some mayhem but it was relatively mild -- especially compared to some of the things Clio and the gang have had to deal with previously. This ended up being a nice send off for the super kids.

Now, it had been a while since I read book 2 (close to a year! Whoa!) and while I remembered the characters just fine, I had to play mental catch up on what happened to Jack and why Clio was estranged from her buds. I got it all ironed out in my head, it just took a few pages. The Jack situation was a little on the sad side. It ended up being hopeful but the idea of losing your memories like he did makes my frowny, sad, let's-give-him-a-cookie face come out. And, yes, I'm aware that I always try to give damaged heroes cookies to make everything better. It's a thing. A chocolately, gooey, fresh from the oven thing.

Shelley Workinger has closed out this trilogy nicely and left things open ended enough that I think she could come back to it in the future if it tickled her fancy. I've enjoyed my time with these genetically modified super kids and I really am sad to see them go.
