Overview

Caramel Cinnamon is one lucky elf. She can hardly believe she's invited to attend the first Intergalactic Youth Summit, on-board the Stellarcadia.

Her friends can't wait to go "hyper," but even the thought of it chills Caramel to the bone. However, nothing could compare to the icy reception she receives upon her arrival. Keen to get to the bottom of it, Caramel stumbles on a dangerous conspiracy, but no one will believe her.

In the exciting conclusion to The Adventures Of Caramel Cardamom Trilogy, Caramel will have to do more than outwit her enemies, she will have to convince her friends to take her seriously.

For ages 8-12

I am a huge fan of Ms. Grasso’s books. She writes fabulous adventures for young people that make you keep reading. The action was non-stop! Caramel is a great main character that one really wants to know more about. She interacts with her friends in a positive way, and is always curious! I like that the characters travel into space in this book. The story was a quick and easy read for me, but a fun read. Ms. Grasso ‘s writing style keeps a smooth flow to the story. The plot is solid and keeps you interested in the story. This is the third book in the series, but it can be read as a stand alone. Apparently, this is the last book in the series, but there is room at the end to have the story go on *hint, hint* 4th book Please! ;) *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

This third instalment in the Caramel Cardamom series adds another mystery solving adventure to Caramel’s belt. The main plot centres around our favourite elven hero being part of the inaugural flight of the shiny new Stellarcadia space ship. Along with a group of high achieving teens, she embarks on the journey of a lifetime and takes part in an on-board conference that showcases their talents, set to culminate in the longest hyperspace jump ever undertaken. But, as usual, our Caramel just seems to look for trouble. She’s never one to shy away from her instincts, especially when they tell her that something is wrong. As the journey unfolds Caramel spends much of her time trying to convince her friends to help her get to the bottom of her suspicions. I like her never-give-up attitude, and that she sticks to her guns, even when the odds are stacked against her. I do wish that her friends would take her word more easily though, given her record for sniffing out trouble. I suspect that the main character’s qualities would have great appeal for young girls who love a hero that portrays confidence, while having an underlying vulnerability that they can relate to. Although we meet a few new acquaintances in this book, the core cast remains the same as the previous books. At 128 pages it’s not a long read, but I imagine it’s perfect for the target readers. A not too long, not too short read with mystery and excitement rolled into a neat package. It has a great looking cover too that just pops. In a nutshell: This is a fun adventure that Caramel Cardamom fans will lap up like a trough of cupcakes. Recommended for 8+ readers who like a good mystery. Note: I don’t claim to be a pro-reviewer, I am a reader. My reviews are based on my personal thoughts around the story that the book is trying to tell. I try to focus on the story (which is the reason I read) rather than dissect the book and pass comment on typos, writing style or structure.

Princess Caramel is off on another adventure, this time on a spaceship. . .but not just any flying piece of old metal. This ship is filled with fantastical surprises and dreams come true. As in the first two books of the Adventures of Caramel Cardamom series, fantasy is not a foreign word. Kids will love exploring the ship with Caramel and her friends as she discovers new and amazing things around each bend. And, of course, there's a bit of excitement, mystery and a pinch of danger thrown in. Caramel is a girl readers will love. She means good. . .after all, she is a princess!. . .but sometimes curiosity gets the best of her. She's fun loving, yet a little shy. Boisterous at times, but afraid to make a speech. And it's exactly these little quirks which bring her and her friends to life. The scenes in this story are packed with fantasy and invite kids to dream of all those things they love. The high-technology twist is an added bonus, which allow kids to fly even further-to the stars and beyond. But don't worry about wordiness or descriptions because despite everything going on in the spaceship, the descriptions stay at a minimum, allowing kids to take the basics as a launch pad for the own imaginations. With the nice length of 128 pages, this was an easy tale to read in one sitting and won't scare kids off with bulk. The action and dialogue maintain a fast pace and although it takes a few chapters to move from the details of the spaceship and into the meaty plot, the pages keep turning.  Summed up, this is a story which leads kids to endless fantasy. I'd recommend it to boys and girls ages 7-9
