This was definitely a great conclusion to the trilogy. They are finally able to find out why Osiris was founded, who was responsible, and how many clones there are. These are great books and I'm so glad that I took the time to finish the series. The narrators were excellent. If you haven't read these books check them out now. I will be doing a full review soon!

In this final installment of Gordon Korman's excellent trilogy about kids who find out they are clones of criminal masterminds and the subjects of a research study called Project Osiris, the story is brought to a satisfying conclusion. This trilogy is so good that I would recommend it not only to middle-graders but also to teens and adults.
Payback it is... Yes! I finished book 3 in the Masterminds series. This one was just as good as the first two. There is a part in the middle where I was like, wait it seems over but half the book is still left, then the action started again. There were some twists that young readers may not see coming. There are even more impossible things in this book than the last one, but kids will love it even more because of the crazy, adventurous things the characters do. This is an enjoyable, thrillin...
I honestly would have loved for this series to go on for another two or three more books, I was having that much fun with it. What a wild and exciting ride it was. So glad I got to go along on it. I know so many kids who are just crazy about these books, (and some adults too!). It's definitely a series to recommend to middle grade students who love stories with lots of excitement and adventure.
My son read on ahead of me he loved the book so much. I finished the series on my own. I recommend this adventure for boys or girls ages 10-13, and their parents who enjoy sharing & discussing stories with their kids.
Great end to the series. My 5th graders loved it!
This book just made me so happy and now I'm sad it's over 😊😭
A great end to an entertaining trilogy! I enjoyed the twist and turns of the plot, and the development of interesting characters.
ARC provided by Young Adult Books CentralWe left the children of Serenity in several bad situations in Criminal Destiny, (the adventure starts with Masterminds) and we pick up right where we left off. Amber and Malik are trying to escape the Serenity police, and are rushing down rapids, only to end up on the top of a truck speeding down the highway! Tori and Eli are also on the run, and end up finding a bit of comfort at a warehouse full of Girl Scout cookies, some of which they sell to get some...
At the end of book #2 Masterminds: Criminal Destiny, the four cloned friends , Eli and Tori, Malek and Amber get separated after betrayal from one of their own. Now, they are attempting to survive while also trying to outwit and escape the inhabitants and community of Serenity, New Mexico, where life was perfect...that is, perfectly twisted in a science-fiction sort of way. Figuring that they need to get some answers about their beginnings and the DNA that contributed to their existence, they tr...
Enjoyed this book again! Basically agree with everything my past self said about it. The cover is awesome.ORIGINAL REVIEW:I loved this book! I mean, I didn't like the whole gangster part of it (that was weird) but otherwise, it was great! The plot twist for Eli's clone was really well played. It totally fit! But I did suspect that The Crossword Killer wasn't him.One thing I wasn't totally happy with was the whole Eli-Tori thing! Korman openly declared about it (book one: You'd have to live in a
Great series!! Payback does not disappoint!
good bang to the end of a great series. WHY DOES IT HAVE TO END!!!!!!!
That was so good! I just wish something more had happened with Eli and Tori. But still rly good! Also, how came books like this end? Like, they have a last page. Can i file a complaint?
Thrilling finale to the trilogy, action-packed and genuinely moving. Brilliantly narrated on audio. I'm genuinely going to miss these characters!
This book is a book for people who love the author Gordon Korman. This book is the 3rd book in the masterminds series.
A great ending to the Masterminds series. Definitely check this out.
My opinon of this book is that I think this book was a good, quick, page-turner book. From start to finish this book has led me on a wild goose chase. Norman did a very good job of putting in jumps of suspense that you couldn't see coming. It has you wondering what comes next. I don't think that their was anytime in the book that I got bored or uninterested. Its a quick read and totally kid friendly. The writing was pretty simple not to complex or had powering words. The weaknesses that the book...
The clones from the Osiris Project have escaped and are now working in pairs to discover who their clone donors really are. Amber and Malik discover that Malik’s donor is an infamous gangster while Eli and Tori are attempting to discover Eli’s donor- a closely guarded secret. This is the final book in the Mastermind series. The book is filled with action, suspense and mystery. Of the three books in the series, this one is the best. It was hard to turn that last page and realize that the end of
(Got this for free from a Goodreads contest) Surprisingly, Payback was far more amusing to read than I anticipated. It was much better written the the first two books. It seems each book of the MasterMinds series got better. The first book was...boring. VERY boring. Well atleast the end was somewhat okay to read. I'm pretty sure I caught a mistake in there somewhere(in Payback). I was however not completely satisfied with the ending. There was something missing. Overall this book was a good way
A trilogy that gets better with each book and an ending that I didn't see coming.
An exciting series that kids and adults will love.
I just didn't love books 2 and 3 as much as the first one. It was good, but didn't live up to the original. I HAD to finish the story, though. So I'm glad I read it.
A thrilling and satisfying conclusion of the Masterminds series.
AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! MY MIND IS BLOWN! A great conclusion!
I'm terrible at remembering details about books in series while waiting for the next book to come out. Book 2 in this series did a great job recapping book 1, but this book 3 assumed that the reader remembered a lot more. Even after finishing this book 3, I still don't remember some of the details of things it alluded to. This book was still interesting to me because the whole premise of the series is really fun and very creative, and I wasn't totally lost--I remembered a lot of stuff from book
I've been reading this series at the urging of my son. My son, who's not a huge fan of taking time to read. He loved this series, and couldn't wait for me to read them all, too. So, first, huge kudos for a great story that pulls in a kid who isn't thrilled to read! This story, and series, is really fun. Some of it may seem a bit unbelievable as an adult, but so fun, nonetheless. Definitely recommended for kids who want adventure stories!
This book is a great finale to the series and it has a happy ending! I can't believe that Eli's "dad", Hammerstrom was finally caught and that Hector finally was their friend again! I am so happy they were able to free the other kids caught up in Project Osiris's cruel experiment! I love this book because it has a happy ending.
