The final book of this trilogy finds 17-year-old Gaia Stone leading the people of Sylum back to the Enclave from which she once escaped. They have nowhere else to go. But once they are there, troubles abound. As Gaia enters the Enclave for negotiations, she discovers that young girls are being coerced into service and used as surrogate mothers for The final book of this trilogy finds 17-year-old Gaia Stone leading the people of Sylum back to the Enclave from which she once escaped. They have nowhere else to go. But once they are there, troubles abound. As Gaia enters the Enclave for negotiations, she discovers that young girls are being coerced into service and used as surrogate mothers for the rich couples unable to produce healthy babies. When she attempts to negotiate a peaceful settlement for her people, she is taken hostage, and because of her blood type, her ovaries are the price for a peaceful settlement to the conflict. Gaia’s fiancé, the son of the leader of the Enclave, risks his life to save her. Readers who relish romance, lots of action and drama that includes overthrowing an evil regime, and strong female characters will love this book. Because of its place in the series, it is not really a stand-alone title; readers must start from the beginning to fully appreciate the characters and events.—Kathy Kirchoefer, Henderson County Public Library, NC
