Happily Ever Endings... The Killables by Gemma Malley

Happily Ever Endings... was born out of sheer frustration. You know how when you read a series and you love it but the last book takes a little while to come out and then you sort of forget parts of the novel? That's what these posts are going to serve to remedy. Happily Ever Ending... is a short post about what happened at the ending of each book that is going to be in a series for people who need a quick reminder of what happened in the previous installment. It's really annoying when you can't remember what happens and don't have time for a reread, so this hopefully will be a huge help!

The KillablesSynopsis from Goodreads: Everyone accepted that people were different physically. But inside? Inside, they were different too. You just had to know how to tell, what to look for.

Evil has been eradicated. The City has been established. And citizens may only enter after having the 'evil' part of their brain removed. They are labelled on the System according to how 'good' they are. If they show signs of the evil emerging, they are labelled a K... But no one knows quite what that means. Only that they disappear, never to be seen again...


Happily Ever Ending: After Raffy and Evie escape the City with the help of Raffy's brother, Lucas, they are captured by Linus and his friends. They turn out to be against the City and its System, and have been working with Lucas for a very long time. Linus takes Evie and Raffy to their 'city' (called Base Camp) where they are preparing to wage war on the City and the Brother.

Evie learns that the Evils aren't actually evil - they are just the City's experiments gone wrong. She then finds out that she was adopted at three years old, and her parents in the City are fake. Her real, biological parents are 'Evils', or Damaged Ones. Once Evie realises that the City are using the Evils as slaves, she decides to help Linus and the Base Camp attack the City and restore 'healthy' civilisation.

The plan was to gather the damaged ones and let them loose into the City using the key Evie stole from her father at the beginning of the book. Then, while the police guard was focused on that decoy, Lucas would let them in at another gate so they could get in without being killed on sight. Then, Linus and Raffy would rewrite the code for the System, and Martha and Evie would change everyone's labels to As in case Linus and Raffy couldn't change the code for whatever reason.

However, somehow the Brother got wind of the plan and captured Lucas which temporarily jeopardised the plan. However, Lucas managed to get Mr Brides to let Evie and Raffy and everyone in at the gate and the plan went ahead, with a little detour to the hospital to free Lucas. Once Lucas is free, he goes to the Brother and captures and imprisons him. Meanwhile, Evie and Martha have changed everyone's labels to As, and Raffy has rewritten the System. However, Linus is nowhere to be found, so Lucas goes to find him.

He goes to where the Brother was tied up and finds him gone. He then hears voices and follows them and finds the Brother talking to Linus outside the Meeting Room. The others all follow him and then the citizens of the City come out of the Meeting Room where they can hear the Brother. Evie tells them all about what is really going on, the truth, and threatens to shoot the Brother dead. In the end, Lucas shoots him in the leg, allowing everyone to escape apart from Linus. Lucas stays behind to get Linus out and make sure the new system works, and to ensure that peace is restored to the City.


I hope this helped! Now you're all set up to read the next one! If I've missed anything important or you think there's something wrong, let me know in the comments! I'm not all that good at these... ;)
