A companion to The Giver and Gathering Blue, this third novel in Lois Lowry’s Giver Quartet succinctly ties up loose ends and leaves the reader with a satisfied, finished feeling. The characters from the two preceding novels are united in a story about betrayal from both nature and humanity, and ultimately, healing.

If you like dystopian fiction, and can handle Lowry’s sometimes canned and corny style, this is the book for you. Pleases multiple age groups and reads similarly to the Hunger Games trilogy.
