Following her forced departure from Fourline, Natalie Barns has been aching to rejoin the struggle to overthrow its evil dictator. With Soris and those she left behind constantly on her mind, Nat bides her time, determined to find a cure for the duozi - those infected by the terrifying Nala.
An unexpected discovery propels her back to those she has sworn to protect, but her reappearance in Fourline is anything but straightforward, particularly when familiar faces appear when least expected. Despite the warnings of her friends and the looming threat of the vengeful Nala queen, Nat joins the fight in Fourline, both in her mind as well as on the field of battle. Her decisions may salvage Fourline's future but at the risk of her own horrifying fate.

I just can't get past Nat taking Cal along with her in Fourline when the portal was right there. the author should have found a way for Cal to come along that made more since. An example would be that when Cal crossed, there's Nala and they must run and fight them off. By the time they are safe, they are too far from the membrane to turn back.
I don't understand why the author felt Cal needed to cross into Fourline, except to be a major pain to all the other characters, but if she really wanted Cal to be there, she should have found a better way to write it.
Only in fiction would and individual like Natalie survive. The relationships developed through most of the three books where contrived and the resolution by "a cure", of the creatures does not follow any scientific methodology. especially in a makeshift lab. blood samples holding active bacteria 6 months is a major stretch. In addition assuming the Fourline inhabitants(sisters) had any sense they would have come across a cure long before this character did. Overall amusing so I finished the trio of books.
Young adult fantasy. While the first book in series was intriguing, I thought the characters became very one dimensional in this last book of series. I was hoping for more complexity in interactions and motives. More greys but I did enjoy
The different dimension existing right outside of the other.
A little like Muirwood with a little bit of Lord of the Rings; passing through the barrier to two worlds and finding intelligent creatures living among men. But I don't think I have read a book that would really compare with this particular story.
Very good narration, she rates up there with Kate Rudd in my liking. I will often times read books based on who is narrating it as well as the story, usually finding that a good performance artist will chose similarly good material to perform; most of the time.
No, the story line was not as captivating as some I have read, but still good enough that I wanted to read the entire series.
Just a good story, fun to read and listen to, good plot twist and unexpected twist and turns. The ending was a bit predictable, but I don't want to put any spoilers in my review. I would recommend the series to those who like adventure, fantasy and people who grow into their strengths.
