Steene realized it was his hope of seeing Bensin again that was fading. The more he got used to life in Neliria as Raymond’s coach, the more distant and unlikely freedom in Tarnestra seemed.
As a green slave (a free man recently enslaved), Steene’s tendency was to forget his place as a slave in the Jeet family. Would the daily humiliation smoldering inside him be the catalyst for his demise?
Life isn’t any easier for Benson. Now a free man, it’s up to him to find a way to support his little sister, Ellie. The Powells have been wonderful, but camping in a tent in their backyard isn’t the future Benson dreamed of when Coach helped him escape.
Benson’s life gets increasingly complicated as he tries to find gainful employment. The ever-present gangs (The Silverheads and the Corner Creepers) have plans for him in their battle for turf. What Bensin knows for sure is that Coach gave up far too much for him to become a prisoner of The Watch again.
The book deals brilliantly with the themes of alienation, coming of age, courage, good versus evil, love, heroism, and reunion. You will never look at the issue of slavery the same again. This is a perfect book for middle-grade students and up. The book is a good stand-alone, but I highly recommend you read all the books in the Krillonian Chronicles.
While Bensin and Ellie struggle with this new found freedom, their father figure, Steene, must cope with his own new role in life, that of a slave. Steene now realizes the kind of life Bensin and his sister experienced before they were set free from the collars around their necks. Steene longs for freedom away from the rich young Nelirian that is now his owner.
Annie Lima’s pen continues the adventures where they left off in her previous two books. We are drawn into a world where families are torn apart and on both sides of the vast ocean separating loved ones. Another page turner, Annie Lima delivers another exceptional tale in the Krillonian Chronicles. Be prepared, nail-biting scenes await the adventurous reader who wants to plunge into a world very similar to our present day. — Stefanie Longwood
The riveting conclusion to the Krillonian Chronicles Trilogy keeps readers on edge until the very last page. I won’t give spoilers but this finale include hair-raising action, heart-wrenching pathos, and examples of courage that readers are sure to enjoy. If you haven’t read the first two books, the author included enough information to let you enjoy this one as a standalone novel, but you’ll probably want to read all three by the time you’re finished. I received an advance review copy of this book and voluntarily post this review.
