Description

Finding themselves. Fighting together. Growing apart.
 
It’s junior year in Quapaw City, Arkansas. With it comes a new foe that even the Freaks cannot thwart--adulthood. As they ponder what the future will be like with college and careers looming, they must contend with the ever-more-perilous threat of The Team, the shadowy government agency bent on saving the world from supernatural menaces. At the same time, they must face their most dangerous adversary yet, a creature of scales and wings that threatens every life in town—just for starters. New questions arise: can the Freaks achieve a common goal when they no longer agree on precisely what that goal should be? And what happens when they realize they just might be the villains in someone else’s story?

“Riley possesses a rare, writerly ability to remain in the moment once the action heats up. In this installment, the Freaks face their most dangerous enemy yet, and the menace fairly leaps off the page.”—PaulEberly.com

"The book is riveting. Compelling and totally different. I read it one sitting and was seriously bummed it had to end. His writing is remarkable and had me wanting more. I devoured Travelers and his ones before this."—Rubie Clark, @RubieReads

Featured Reviews

I've been reading the Freaks Saga since the beginning and I've enjoyed each entry getting stronger and stronger. The characters themselves have grown and been done really well, and I've enjoyed the plot and going through this world. I can't wait to read more from Brett Riley as this series has made me a fan.

"The next day, Kenneth and Ty went to Elvis Schott’s funeral. None of the other Freaks had come. No big surprise. Any of them would have looked and felt out of place after all those years when Marla had ignored or tormented them."

This is the third installment to the Freaks Trilogy, in which the characters are experiencing another wild adventure to which they are to save the town, this time from a fire breathing dragon. The characters are more developed, and while the plot does seem fast-paced, if you can keep up, you’ll enjoy this book.
