Review
/* Starred Review */ Gr 5–8—Tanner's trilogy concludes with a meticulously plotted, rapidly paced adventure that both stands alone and richly satisfies fans of the first two novels. The narrative picks up where Sunker's Deep left off, with the crews of both the Oyster and the Claw on dry land searching for the captain and the legendary Singer. Enter young Gwin and her family, traveling entertainers called "Fetchers," whose performances bring moments of pleasure to the downtrodden population while preserving traditional lore and keeping ancient secrets from the Anti-Machinists. Tanner's unparalleled world-building seamlessly weaves Gwin's tale into a complex narrative told from multiple perspectives. The author provides just enough backstory to keep new readers engaged and the action moving toward a thrilling ending that unites characters from all three installments. Attentive readers will be intrigued by early plot details that later on return to add significance at pivotal moments. Masterly writing brings the stark landscape to life and reveals characters' deepest emotions. VERDICT A first purchase for collections that already have the other volumes in the series; expect interest in them if ordering this third entry on its own.—Marybeth Kozikowski, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY --Marybeth Kozikowski (Reviewed 06/01/2017) (School Library Journal, vol 63, issue 6, p96)
