A great read from start to finish and I would highly recommend it. Some very interesting new characters and also some unexpected twists and turns along the way! Looking forward to the author's next book...

I can't really explain why I love this series so much. I just feel like these characters are members of my family or something and I just have to find out their story. This book was every bit as good as the others and I can't wait for book four.

In this installment, family is very important and many interesting adventures are had. Recommended.

It was a pleasure to follow them all as they endeavour to adapt and survive what life thr
