Description

Mysterious murders, shadowy figures, and high school. Life can be hard; death can be harder.

Cole Harper is dead. Reynold McCabe is alive and free. Mihko Laboratories has reopened the research facility and works to manufacture and weaponize the illness that previously plagued Wounded Sky. People are missing, and the community has been quarantined. What deal did Eva strike with Choch? Who will defeat Reynold and Mihko? Time is running out.

Robertson’s final instalment in this excellent trilogy does not disappoint. He manages to take on important and timely themes while always keeping the reader engaged, engrossed and entertained. Fans will root for this believable cast of characters as they finally get to the truth of the mysterious goings-on at Wounded Sky. I can’t wait to see more from this fine author!

Once again, award-winning author David A. Robertson, a member of Norway House Cree Nation, achieves a fantastic balance between the development of the characters and the pacing of the story to create a highly engaging read.

Robertson’s trademark wit, grasp of superhero conventions, and skill in telling own-voices stories set in First Nations communities are all on display in the Reckoner books, which leave YA readers shaken and exhilarated.
