Book Review: Malia's Miracles

Title Malia's Miracles

Series Devya's Children, book 3

Author Julie C. Gilbert

Release Date November 2, 2014

How much is one life worth?

Danielle Matheson faces a difficult decision: helplessly watch Christy's mother die of cancer or ask Jillian and her genetically Gifted siblings to risk their freedom to save her.

Once committed to the cause, Jillian, Malia, and Michio turn their full attention to fighting the caner, but more danger awaits them. Defeating the disease and dodging government agents soon become the least of their worries when measured against the race against time to rescue one girl from certain death.

Like the previous two books, Malia's Miracles is told through journal entries and letters from various characters. Books told in epistolary form are some of my favorite books, but the format doesn't work for every situation. Sometimes, you just don't get enough of the action to make a compelling read. Surprisingly, I think this format works really well for this series (as I stated before in my first review).

Though I don't feel like there was as much going on in this book (compared to the second), it was still a very good story and I enjoyed reading it. I really like that each book seems to focus more on one of the children and exploring their gifts, but still includes the others (because like the books state, they are stronger together and their gifts compliment one another's).

I do hope to read more from Devya's Children in the future. For now, I recommend this series to those that enjoy young adult fantasy/sci-fi/adventure!


4 out of 5 stars
