But even in the idyllic wilderness and the heart of her original family, Kyla realizes there is no escape from the oppressive Lorders.

About the Author
Teri Terry (www.teriterry.com), Canadian by birth, has lived in France, Canada, Australia and England, at more addresses than she can count. She’s been a scientist, lawyer, optometrist and business manager, and worked in high schools and libraries, with writing and stories always humming along in the background. Because moving constantly has kept her on the outside looking in much of her life, she has an obsession with characters who don’t belong or find themselves in unfamiliar places. Slated was her first novel, and she recently completed a research MA on the depiction of terrorism in young-adult literature. She lives in Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom.

One of the best series I've read in awhile. Definitely recommend, I almost couldn't put the book down! This series is more of a drama/mystery story.
This series was great! Great read for any age, teens or older! Couldn't put it down and had a hard time waiting for the last book to arrive! Will pass this series on to other readers in the family! Thanks Terri for another great reading experience!
Best trilogy the author could have made to end the book. Not like some of the trilogies out there...
