Horn Book Review

Siblings Amy and Dan reach a breaking point when they discover the Vespers' fatal plan (Trust). In Doom, the two face the near-impossible task of destroying a Doomsday device and shutting down the Vespers indefinitely. The final two entries in this suspenseful series are more focused and deliberately paced than previous books, which helps bring the story to a satisfying conclusion.
