Alan Tucker brings the story of Jenny Kershaw and her friends to a dramatic conclusion in the third installment of the Mother-Earth series, Mother’s Heart.
At the end of the last book, Jenny was stranded back on earth in the company of a fire-spirit named Neseus and his daughter, an air-spirit named Xenia. Jenny was searching desperately for a way back to mother where all her friends and now even her parents are.
Eventually, after trying many different locations Jenny makes her way back to Mother. This time Jenny isn’t the only human who finds a way to Mother, in fact an entire group of Army members find a way to make a portal between Earth and Mother and are there to explore the planet and exploit its resources. What they don’t realize is that like every other human who has ever come to Mother they are all changing into whatever the planet will make of them. Thankfully the officer initially in charge of the team on Mother has one of his men record the changes taking place as a way to let the people back on Earth know that perhaps coming to Mother might not be the wisest decision they can make.
When Jenny makes it back to Mother she discovers herself on the opposite side of the planet from her friends and family. While there she makes friends with a young Gobinstratorai boy who is essentially a victim of forced slave labor. Jenny manages to free him, but becomes extremely aware of the fact that outside of Seren’naie, the advanced city where Jenny and her friends eventually ended their initial travels on Mother, there exists grave injustice. Realizing she has to pick her battles, Jenny has to ignore what is going on with the mind controlling class of elves and concentrate instead on getting back to her friends and family.
There is a ton of action in this book involving Jenny, her old friends and new ones, the Army and relatively new extremely dangerous threat. Mogritas is at it again and is out to destroy Mother itself this time; taking away all that makes magic thrive on the planet. Can Jenny and her friends stop him in time? Is there even a chance of winning when the battle, this time, is so stacked in favor of the opposition? I highly recommend you read this exciting YA and Middle Grade series.
