Horn Book Review

This conclusion to Lackey's dystopian trilogy (Hunter, Elite) finds Joy and her fellow Elite safe but exhausted following their last battle with the monstrous Othersiders. However, after learning of PsiCorps's wicked plan to rule Apex City, Joy and company find themselves anticipating help from their Othersiders enemies. Fans should be pulled into Lackey's world of magic, family, and the fight for humanity's survival. (c) Copyright 2019. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
