Strong follow up to Blacklands and Darkside,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Finders Keepers (Hardcover)
DO read Blacklands and Darkside before reading this. Then it will all make sense and you'll get the very best out of what is an exciting trilogy.
The charactorisation is excellent. There is plenty of humour in there too, usually just when you need a break from the heaviness of the story as it unfolds.
The children and young people are believable and well written, in particular the ones with disability. A very sympathetic depiction as well as giving them star space and credit for their intelligence.
As with the last two books, this has a thrilling last phase, making it impossible to put down.
I'm not sure if Belinda Bauer is done with the village of Shipcott and its residents now, it might be as well to leave it there, though if another book followed, I'd just have to buy it.
What ever Bauer writes next, I'll be up for it.
