"Lords of Trillium"

this is the third book in "The Nightshade Chronicles"
MG series by Miss Hilary Wagner.

What the book blurb says: "When Billycan left Trillium at the end of The White Assassin, he fled to the island of Tosca. There, he learns that a former ally, working undercover in Nightshade City is plotting to seize power. he races back to Trillium to join the coup - but on which side? Something even more sinister is afoot in Trillium City. Rats are disappearing, and when Juniper leads a search party topside, they discover the alarming truth: Prince Pharmaceuticals, the insidious corporation tht tortured so many rats, is still in operation, working clandestinely to uncover the secret of Trillium rats' extraordinary intelligence and longevity. The fate of the Nightshade rats is in Billycan's hands, but can he be trusted? Will he use his connection to the human scientists for good or for evil?"

What Lenny (that's me) says:  "i love rats! well…not all rats. but, for sure i love the rats in “The Nightshade Chronicles” trilogy. i read and loved the first two books, “Nightshade City” and “The White Assassin.” and, i just finished (couldn’t put it down) the third book, “Lords of Trillium.” miss hilary took me on another exciting and heart thumping adventure! the book has cool characters, battles, conflicts, intrigue, ever changing relationships, surprises and even a splash of rat romance. ack! but wait! theres more! how ‘bout an explosive ending! WOW! how hot is that! mix all that stuff together with a terrific plot and a strong voice and WHAMO!! it’s a winner! yep, it has all the things that make for a fantastic mg book. it’s a good read for young and older adults too. get it! read it! you’ll love it!
