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.
I absolutely loved this series and the characters and everything about it. This was such a satisfying ending and tied everything up in a beautiful bow. Bensin, Ellie, and Coach Steene are my favorite fictional family ever, and I will definitely be rereading their story in the future.
What I loved most about this installment was how Coach Steene was finally forced to face his worst enemy: his conscience. From the start of the series, he made some questionable decisions, and now he’s faced the consequences and redeemed himself, and I could not be happier!
I’m taking off one star for lack of a climax. Everything ended a little too quickly and conveniently for me, but I don’t mind too much because all I wanted was for my favorite found family to be exactly that: found <3
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
