The Traitor of Belltroll
More lists with this book...
I'd heard great things about Lindsay Cumming's The Murder Complex duology. I hadn't heard many things about her Balance Keepers trilogy, but I had been wanting to read a lot of middle grade fantasy books lately, so I figured I'd try it before The Murder Complex.

After reading this book and "The Death Code" (The final book of Lindsay Cummings's YA series), I've come to the conclusion that this author is exceptionally good at writing... well... conclusions.
Whereas the first two books of this trilogy follow the same formula as it develops the characters, plot, and world, this final installment throws that formula out the window.

The book had a very intriguing story about Albert Flynn's fight against the traitor trying to destroy the Core. Lindsay Cummings did an amazing job in describing his emotions, feelings, and thoughts throughout the book.
