Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4):

With one action trilogy already under her belt, author Marie Lu knows how to bring disparate plot threads to a satisfying conclusion and fulfills the promises made in the previous two volumes. In The Midnight Star, she puts antihero Adelina Amouteru front and center as she battles her own worst character traits. The rest of the dynamic casts gets its due, too, as they engage in a battle in which the fate of their world hangs in the balance. It all adds up to high fantasy with a superheroic twist, and Lu makes the odd combination work.
