I had some problems with the books in this series. They varied from a little under three to above 3-1/2 stars but overall it was a very good story and very well conceived and told. I definitely feel it's more than a worthwhile read. ( )

Not the strongest ending, but still very good. I like how it pulls everyone back together for the end. ( )

Among the Free is the last book in the Shadown Children series. I personally think that it was the worst book out of the series, which isn't very good because it is the ending to everything. When I was reading it, I couldn't see how the story was going to end. And then all of a sudden they are all just free. They are all trying to escape and then it was like "where is everyone?" "oh you're free now" "YAYAYAY". So, ya. I didn't particularly like this book, but it wasn't that bad. And the rest of the books in the series is really good. ( )

This is the final book in the shadow kids series. When the population police fail and are out of power, the people take over. But when the people start wanting them back Luke has to take action. An action packed ending wraps up this series. ( )
