You know how you hate it when a close friend moves away? That is how I feel when I finish a series I have loved. And this was one of those series. This story picks up where the last book left off, and truly I personally feel you have to read all of them to get the whole story. I have to say there were some twists and turns and I joined Kate in wondering who really was the good guys and the bad guys. I loved that! Sandra Orchard is very talented in her writing, and I read the note at the back of the book and was surprised to find that the two main plants in the series were fictional plants. She did a great job convincing me they were real plants. My final thought: if you're looking for a series to keep you up reading all night, this is the one to read. 4.5 stars from this reviewer.
