“Bane, I know it’s risky, but I think I should do this speech.
We’ve got to win... If we don’t, we’re all dead...”
A HUSBAND IN DESPAIR... AN ENEMY IN NEED... A LIFE AND DEATH VOTE...
In three months, the citizens of the EuroBloc will decide whether or not to abolish Sorting, the grim annual harvesting of “imperfect” teenagers for their organs. If they vote the wrong way, then Margo and everyone she cares about will die.
While Bane struggles to cope with the loss of his eyes, the lives of millions of young people and Believers are at stake as Margo embarks on increasingly risky political missions out of the Vatican State.
But threats soon loom from the most unexpected quarters, compromising even the security of the Vatican itself, and with the vote hanging in the balance, the media battle threatens to turn into real war.
Bane is desperate to join Margo in the fight, but how can he without his eyes?

About the Author
Corinna Turner has been writing since she was fourteen and likes strong protagonists with plenty of integrity. She has an MA in English from Oxford University, but has foolishly gone on to work with both children and animals! Juggling work with the disabled and being a midwife to sheep, she spends as much time as she can in a little hut at the bottom of the garden, writing. She is a Catholic Christian with roots in the Methodist and Anglican churches. A keen cinema-goer, she lives in the UK with her Giant African Land Snail, Peter, who has a six inch long shell and an even larger foot!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Liberation, (Book #3) could have, with some adjustments, served as the conclusion to the I Am Margaret series. With that in mind, I wondered where Bane's Eyes would take the story. Corinna Turner does a great job in bringing the reader into the darkness - both literal and figurative - pervading Margaret and Bane's fledgling marriage. Margaret's growing burdens and increasing isolation are palpable. Beyond their marriage, the final installment turns every relationship inward as multiple characters wrestle with forgiveness and conversion. From Bane and Margaret to Major Everington, Kyle, and others, they have to learn live with themselves, whatever becomes of the EuroGov. In addition to the interior struggles, plenty of exterior tension and action move the story forward as the Underground uses both political maneuvers and media savvy to create a groundswell of support for peaceful revolution. All loose ends are tied up in a satisfying conclusion filled with hope despite those who have been lost and the challenges sure to come. I Am Margaret is a series I look forward to re-reading. Filled with action, tension, romance, and courage, it's not only a thrilling read, but a profound reflection on the things that matter most - those that are worth dying for.
