I loved all three of the Scavenger' s Daughters. The stories where beautifully written and when I was reading them I could smell and touch and feel everything Kay Bratt was describing. Fantastic books. Going to down load the next book. Thank you. This is what makes me enjoy reading.

Having read the two previous books in the series, I found this one an intriguing tale just as good if not better than the previous two. Now having got to know the family the book is free from explanations to go ahead with the story. I really enjoyed this book and have already started book four.

Another good read. Wasn't so sure about the exchange of twin sisters in the Institution, but lots to learn from this book.
Two quotes I found meaningful, Lao Tzu tell us "Sometimes we put walls up, not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down." ""Every broken heart will lead you to your true path. You are only stronger for the trials you have been through. In time you'll see the lessons you are meant to learn from them." Already started Book 4! H.

Although I enjoyed this third book in the trilogy, I feel cheated. The story feels like a huge chunk has been missed at the end as it leaps from Sami leaving to the baby returning but very little about how this came about, how she freed Sky, how he came to return, what happened when the debt was repaid, story around the raising of the money to pay the fine. Also, unless there is another book to come out, so many loose ends which comes across as sloppy story writing - did the author lose interest in the topic? Really disappointed in this book; the story itself is just as good as the other two but it feels like a whole chunk of the book is missing. If it was a paper book, I'd think pages had been ripped out. Such a shame. Although it easily deserves five stars, I can only give it three because it feels incomplete. Very disappointed.

Once more more tales of the scavengers daughter's. A page Turner that I couldn't put down. More tales of China,but somehow the story is unresolved....it just ends....no tying up of loose ends. There are so many unanswered parts.....can a book be a good but disappointment at the same time? Further instalment required to finish it off and not leave it as it is....

I HAVE NOW READ ALL THREE OF "TALES OF THE SCAVENGERS DAUGHTERS" AND I HAVE BEEN ENTHRALLED BY ALL THREE. MY KINDLE HAS HARDLY LEFT MY HAND. I FELT THE STORYLINES FASCINATING AND A JOY TO READ ( EVEN THE SAD PARTS) I WILL CERTAINLY BE READING MORE OF KAY BRATTS BOOKS.

I enjoyed reading this 3rd book of the series and enjoyed re meeting the characters. In some ways I felt this story had gaps and left the reader wondering what happened e.g.. the story about the violin. Perhaps some of my queries will
come up in the next book

This trilogy is a very good read. After reading the first book, one gets 'hooked' to know how the story develops. In a land full of danger and authoritarian rule, this family struggles for survival and wins over oppressive odds. Can't wait to read the fourth book.
