One year later, the Committee has struck back with a vengeance, crippling the Resistance now scattered throughout Europe. When Devonbury Academy in Switzerland is attacked, Tom and Sarah’s only hope is to make it to a safe house in northern Italy by relying on their own experience and covert training.
Overpowered and outnumbered, they are ruthlessly hunted throughout Italy by the Black Nobility and a team of assassins. Henry and Oliver discover a devastating truth, Detective Gowerstone is confronted by a secret from his past, and Inspector Fontaine is pushed to her limits.
Will Tom and Sarah ever find the Britfields? Relationships will be challenged, new friendships forged, and an unparalleled finale of sacrifice, romance, revenge, and loss.
My Thoughts on the Book
The best thing about the Britfield series is the rich history of the countries and historic places the children visit. That, and the well-developed characters of Tom, Sara, and Hunter. Sara is by far my favorite. She's quirky, a genius at figuring out escapes in bad situations, and a trustworthy companion.
The story is filled with non-stop action, intense situations, and times of escape. It is one of the best action-packed novels laced with suspense that I've read in a long time. Even though it is considered a young adult book, I feel that it has enough going on to keep an adult engaged. It brought back the child in me.
I can't wait for the next in the series to see what adventures follow for Tom, Sara, and Hunter. Highly recommended. I was provided with a complimentary copy by the publisher and voluntarily choose to review it.
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
