Some comments for now on the series were made for the first book. ( )

This is the third book of the series. The story is different though. The first two books were about Luke/Lee. This book carries on the story of one of the minor characters from book 2. I still enjoyed it. ( )

Though the second book in this series did not impress me all that much, I had enjoyed "Among the Hidden" so much that I was nevertheless looking forward to reading this third book in the Shadow Children series. I have to say, I was again disappointed. Like book II, this installment wasn't nearly as good as its prequel. I was disappointed to find that it is about a different character altogether, with barely even a single mention of Luke.
Nothing really happens, besides the heroine finding out some revelation at the end, which did not make me any more inclined to continue the series. ( )

I've heard the first 3 books are the best, so I'm hoping to like the next ones as well. ( )

This one annoyed me. I hated how they took the attention away from the "star" and completely refocused the saga, but by the end of the series, I was ok with that. It showcased how one person rarely makes a difference and true change is a collaborative effort without any kind of Christ-like savior. ( )

What does it mean to save yourself?

Nina Idi -- a third child in a society where families are allowed only two children -- has been betrayed by the boy she loved, and arrested by the Population Police for exposing other alleged third children. Angry and confused, Nina knows only one thing for sure: She is innocent of the charges. But now she is faced with the most difficult choice of her life: Get three other prisoners to admit they are shadow children and be spared herself, or refuse to cooperate and be killed.

The options are clear. The choice, Nina discovers, is not....

Thirteen-year-old Nina is imprisoned by the Population Police, who give her the option of helping them identify illegal "third-born" children, or facing death.
