The Roar has finally made it to Earth. Will these children be able to stop her from destroying their planet?

First, what was I thinking when I thought I should re-read this?!

Okay, my feelings haven’t really changed from the first time I read it.

I’ll summarize since I don’t want to think that much about this book. Things I didn’t like:

- This book is a little bit shorter than the second book, but longer than the fir

this series was quite unique. much of what happened was so weird it is hard to tell if I liked it. it is one of those books that if I tried to describe it, people would think it is just dumb. But it was well crafted and very imaginative.

Well, I planned on finishing last night, but I got too busy and too tired.

I just finished today and was very happy the way the book ended. The last few chapters were amazing.I am very glad I read this series. I loved how he wrote from a different child's point of view every chapter.

McNish did leave it open to more story if he wanted to, but I don't think he needs too, he pretty much leaves it up to the imagination on what happens next.

Good books, just wish that I could have read them faster!

A brilliant conclusion to a crazy trilogy, Silver World gives the final battle between the Roar and the enhanced children of earth. Hope is gained and lost as are some of the battles, but the Protector and Milo are strong allies. McNish presents this novel as carefully as the first two, letting each character have their own scenes and struggles and introducing new issues while still resolving the existing ones. The ending is powerful.

wow, what an incredibly unique story! I'd never heard of McNish before I discovered this series at the Lacrosse public library. With so many sci series out there now, this is fresh and newly written. yes, it's about saving the world, but with constant surprises in every chapter. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in Juv sci fi fiction.

Great story. How can there not be a 4th book? The ending was a left hanging a little. I did enjoy this series. The 1st book was the best, with the 2nd one as the 2nd best and the 3rd last, although that could change with a 4th book. I would really like to see this series continued. Great view of the characters.

This book is EPIC. I liked how Milo kicked some roar butt. It was cool how in the end they go hunting. I hope they win. Carnac was cool but hey got whooped.

I loved it. Third in the series and I want to know more. I would love another book, but I know they have to end sometime. Too bad.

This was good and I liked the conclusion but I feel like there could have been a fourth book to explore what happened next.

According to my Mum, when I was arriving in this world on the night of 24th August 1962 the electricity in the house failed, and all the lights went out. So I was born part in darkness and part in candlelight. I’ve no idea what significance that has, but it sounds impressive somehow…

I was born in Sunderland, a city in the north-east of England. I’d like to say I picked up the local Mackam accent,
