What if you achieve everything you’ve dreamed of – and it turns into a nightmare?

Danika and her crew of refugees finally reach the Magnetic Valley. Will it be the safe refuge and land of freedom they had imagined? When a runaway girl is shot down before their eyes, Danika and her friends realise that this new land is no paradise. They must try to fit in at all costs – even if revealing their secrets will mean a death sentence.

The conclusion to the Chasing the Valley trilogy will reveal explosive surprises and terrifying new dangers.

Skyfire was a thrilling conclusion to the series. As opposed to the previous installments, the finale kept me hooked the entire time and hence I completed it in a single sitting.

In a way, Chasing the Valley reminds me of The Montmaray Journals – in that the first few books were average with the finale an absolute page-turner. Although the prior installments weren’t that great, they were needed in how they established relationships and created background information and shared experiences – without them, the conclusions would not have been so enthralling.

Everything simply fell into place in Skyfire – the characters, the plot, the subtle clues that you didn’t even realise were there until the story unfolded. Whatever it was, the underlying feeling that I had of disinterest, dislike, at the series was swept away in this stunning finale.

The execution was perfect, and the overall message even more so. I am extremely glad that I stuck with the series and I do recommend the read.
