Grade 6-10-This third installment in the series begins with Claidi in an airship attempting to return to the Hulta and her betrothed, Argul. She finds that he has left, and that everyone believes her to be a deserter and a traitor. She is devastated but determined to find Argul and plead her case. In chasing him, she encounters the inhabitants of the Raven Tower and a woman she believes to be her mother. All is not as it seems, however, and Claidi must decide whom to trust in order to survive. For the most part, the book stands on its own, and readers will be able to follow the story line without too much difficulty. There are only a few points of confusion and Lee tries to alleviate them with brief explanations of what occurred in the previous books. However, readers may find it hard to care much about Claidi, who comes across as a little whiny and rather immature. She seems to drift from one situation to another, relying on others to care for and rescue her. Female characters found in Tamora Pierce's "Alanna" series (Random) are strong willed, opinionated, and need no one to rescue them; they're more entertaining and much easier to empathize with in comparison. Purchase decisions depend on the popularity of the first two books in the series.

Gr. 5-8. Following Wolf Tower (2000) and Wolf Star (2001), this conclusion to the Claidi Journals trilogy finds the intrepid Claidi aboard the sky-ship Star, in search of her beloved Argul, who has disappeared believing that Claidi willingly fled on their wedding day. When the Star's powers fail, Claidi continues her quest on the ground, following Argul's tracks into icy northern realms. She discovers that she has been lured there by the people of the Raven Tower, and once again finds herself the victim of Tower machinations that threaten her independence. The complex relationships and Tower power struggles are spelled out as the still feisty Claidi stands up for herself and comes into her real powers. Claidi's occasional use of modern terminology, such as twerp, is a little off-putting, but readers enthralled by her previous adventures will enjoy this rousing finish. Sally Estes
