It seems with this series, it had its good and okay moments. But throughout the third book in the series, the characters, the story, writing style and the mystery was really good. Also love the covers. Can't wait to read the next and last one. Quite the series thus far.
I have loved the uniqueness of this series and these characters from the beginning and I was thrilled to get another installment with them. It was exciting to get Jenny's story and see her history. Of course there are more things revealed and more bad guys and more more more. The ending is satisfying to a point, but if this is the last book, I will be irritated because there is a great set up for a book 4. Overall, a quick and fun read. I think I could read these characters forever. **Huge thanks to Algonquin Young Readers for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**
