Nil On Fire by Lynne Matson - ADVISABLE

Matson, Lynne Nil On Fire, 406 pages.  Henry Holt (Macmillan), 2016.  $18.  Language: R (72 swears, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (mild battles).

Skye and most of the others have escaped Nil, but Paulo stayed behind.  Nil has just enough power to open gates to restock the island, drawing in other innocents to its lair.  Skye’s connection to Nil shows her what’s happening and she lures the others back to Nil in order to shut down the island forever. 

Yippee!  A third Nil book!  I had no idea.  Matson does a skillful job of bringing the series to an end.  Each book was a well-crafted novel in its own right, an exciting, absorbing read.  Congratulations to Lynne Matson for being the master of the trilogy form, ruling it instead of being ruled by it.
