Description-

  • Jack discovers new abilities, travels to exciting lands, and thwarts a conspiracy brewing deep within the ministries in this epic conclusion to the action-packed Section 13 series.
    Jack Buckles is on trial for his life.

    The Ministries of Secrets and Guilds, led by Ignatius Gall, are conspiring to put the Ministry of Trackers down for good—starting with Jack's very existence as a Section 13. His only hope is to prove that Gall is the real danger, not him, and it leads Jack and Gwen from the back streets of London, through the Austrian Alps, to the great reaches of central China.

    Joined by their new friend Liu Fai, Jack and Gwen set out to stop Gall before he can uncover ancient Chinese artifacts, said to grant immortality. But a clockwork monster threatens them at every turn, and its turning gears only serve as a reminder that Jack's judgment day is fast approaching—and that he's running out of time.

About the Author-

  • James R. Hannibal is no stranger to deep dark secrets or hunting bad guys, having served in the US Air Force as a stealth bomber pilot and a Predator mission commander. Like Jack Buckles, James "suffers" from synesthesia, an intersection of the senses that was once considered a mental illness and often causes hyperobservance. If you bake him a cake, he might tell you that it smells blue and sticky—and you should take it as a compliment. You can learn more at TheLostPropertyOffice.com.

    December 1, 2018
    History, steampunk, and fantasy abound in the third installment of the Section 13 series.Readers new to it would fare best by starting with The Lost Property Office (2016) and The Fourth Ruby (2017). Protagonist Jack is reeling, with his father in a coma and himself on trial, accused by the villainous Undersecretary for Things Unknown at the Ministry of Secrets, Ignatius Gall. Gall claims Jack is in violation of Section Eight, "the mixing of tracker bloodlines," and demands that he be "destroyed" and the Ministry of Trackers disbanded. While the trial is adjourned, Jack still struggles to control both his "sparks," the memories he sees trapped in objects, and his new skill of conjuring fire. Accompanied by companion Gwen, he decides to seek the "zed," an artifact that could possibly cure Jack's father. Eventually their search leads them to China and the hope that they may thwart Gall's quest for immortality. The packed plot has a quick pace, but that results in quick resolutions and a lack of suspense. Gwen is white, and there's nothing made of white-presenting Jack's iota of Mongolian heritage, revealed in the previous book. There is diversity in secondary characters, and the second half of the story takes place in China, and here the book falters culturally. Hannibal stretches Chinese history with Jack's claim that the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, became a "raving lunatic," and, regrettably, the most prominent Asian character, the biracial (Asian/white) Liu Fai, is a math champion.Relentless action will either entertain or overwhelm readers. (Adventure. 8-12)
