From Goodreads:

The haven city of Beckenshire has been demolished, and most of the rebels lie beneath the rubble. The few that remain scramble to communicate with the outside world, knowing that if they are to stand a chance in the coming war, they can’t do it alone. In a last ditch effort to grow their ranks, the remaining rebels systematically destroy the repeaters which help to propagate the control center signals. And it’s working: citizens in targeted cities are waking up in droves. But Ben Voltolini will stop at nothing to quell the uprising before it has a chance to get off the ground. And he has one major ace up his sleeve: Kate Brandeis. 
During Kate’s broadcast to the nation, Voltolini unleashed targeted brainwave signals against her, causing her to allow both Jackson MacNamera’s capture, and her own. Now, despite Voltolini’s exquisite wining and dining, she can’t seem to stop the panic attacks. Whom can she trust? What is truth? Is there even such a thing? 
Meanwhile, imprisoned and hopeless, Jackson realizes the depths of his feelings for Kate only after he has already lost her. The incredible self-control upon which he prides himself gets put to the ultimate test when he meets an unlikely ally who just may turn the tide in the rebels’ favor—but only if Jackson can put aside his own bitterness. In this gripping conclusion to The Liberty Box Trilogy, new and surprising alliances are formed, passions run high, and our heroes learn what they are really made of. Do they have what it takes to fight for freedom—even if it means paying the ultimate price? 

I've been looking forward to reading The Phoenix Project since I finished The Eden Conspiracy, and it did not disappoint.  The Phoenix Project is a strong finish to a stellar series, and I have nothing but good things to say about it.

The entire series is pretty action-packed, but The Phoenix Project really raises the bar.  I was on the edge of my seat at times, and I had goosebumps at the end.  It's been a long time since I've had such a strong reaction to a book.  I was so happy to get closure, but on the other hand, I was sad that it was over!  I didn't want to say goodbye to these characters, but I was pleased with how things turned out.  There is such wonderful character development throughout the series, and I love how much Kate has changed from the beginning.

The world building is creative and imaginative, and it was so easy to get lost in the story.  The author has a talent for subtly drawing you into this world with her incredible writing.

And I have to mention the cover - it's gorgeous.  Definitely my favorite of the three covers.

The Phoenix Project is an intelligent, entertaining, and well-written dystopian, and I would highly recommend checking out this series!

I'm not sure how long these prices will last, but you can currently get the entire series for less than $6 on Amazon!  The first book is free, so you should definitely go get that now.  :)
