Children of Jubilee

I squealed when I opened the envelope containing this book. Then I put it aside and went back to read the end of book two, Children of Refuge. I wanted to get my mind right back into the story.

This book proved to be a twisty ending to this trilogy (Children of Exile series), the world building spectacular as it always is with this author. The plot keeps rolling along at a rapid pace.

Kiandra and the other kids end up on an alien planet where they are forced to mine for some pearls that give endless energy.

I don’t think it gives too much away when I spoil the fact that aliens have some technology that can make them look and sound like humans which proves to be exciting and challenging for the kids.

All in all, it was a great conclusion to an exciting series.
