Ghost Towns (The Child Thief #5) by Bella Forrest

This is the 5th book in The Child Thief series.

Now that Robin has discovered a lead on her daughter, all she can think about is tracking her down. And her birth parents—whom Robin never dreamed she’d have the opportunity to meet.

But when Robin and Jace return to the outside world, after gaining permission from Nathan, there have been worrying developments. Townships housing the poor are being emptied at an alarming rate, seemingly faster than ever before, and they have no idea why, or where the residents are being taken.

A personal mission quickly turns into something much greater as Robin and Jace follow the clues… leading to answers neither of them is prepared for.

This book was absolutely brilliant. I found that it has been the best of the series so far. It was full of action and drama. It moved at a good fast pace and the characters continued to be brilliant.

Robin is a fantastic lead character. She is strong willed, but still has the vulnerability to make her relatable. She might be carrying out these missions well, but she is still scared about the situations in which she finds herself in. Jace is also great, as are all the other characters.

I found myself getting excited reading this book. The storyline has been great and it developed well. The overall plot of the series keeps thickening. The ending had me feeling pretty tense, on edge waiting to see what happened next.

It ended on a cliffhanger, as do most of Bella Forrest’s books which I’ve read, but this one was almost frustrating after the final revelation on the book. It definitely has me excited to read the next one of the series when it comes out.

Overall, this book was simply brilliant. I would definitely recommend reading this series.

My rating: 5/5*
