SUMMARY: Marco is still missing, but the three remaining friends are in possession of the two loculi. They return to the Massa headquarters to find a trap awaiting them. This turns their world upside down. Who can they trust? Who can they turn to now that the institute seems out of their reach? With an unexpected resource on their team, they go in search of the third loculus of healing where they truly have to face down demons. This journey brings them down the road to loss and more betrayal.

THE GOOD: The three select that are left continue on their journey to find the loculi against all odds by sticking together and working together. I enjoy the humor throughout the book as it helps break up the serious parts. I especially love Torquin.
THE NOT AS GOOD: Book three was full of all sorts of problems. The three select kids go from one tragedy to another, but at no time did I truly connect with them as characters. They were too busy doing stuff. And at times it felt like truly random stuff. The first few chapters felt like a forced set up to get them in a new place. It had no purpose other than that of predictability. There is now a lot of confusion. Who are the good guys? Is Jack's mom evil? How are they to continue their mission since they had to destroy one of the loculi. Doesn't this defeat the purpose of finding all seven of them? The chapters where they journey to find the third loculus was just one page of nasty gore after another with zombies and body parts falling off. Then, they go through all this work and tragedy and don't even get the loculus. Total let down. The whole scene in New York was confusing and felt like nothing more than a set up for the next book. Book #3 plot was all over the place. I was not able to enjoy the journey they were on as much in the other books. I hope book #4 will tie everything together. Again there was quite a bit of violence and destruction as well as animal cruelty.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: GRADES 5-9 due to maturity and violence
