A solid finish to a really interesting young adult trilogy (Chaos Walking).
The book starts off right where the second book ends, and puts the reader right in the middle of the war between the Mayor and the Spackle (the human name for the indigenous alien population). Young Todd is caught in the middle. His girlfriend Viola is with the women and a new voice is introduced in the book, one of the escaped aliens who only wants revenge.
Morally ambiguous, with perspective shifting between the three narrators, views are given for every perspective. War can make 'Monsters Of Men' and what are we to do with that? Is revenge to be had at the cost of a society? When your loved ones are in mortal danger, how far is it okay to go to protect them?
