    CANT'T WAIT! I KNOW I'M GOING TO LOOOOOOOVEEEEE THIS. *squeals*

    5 Worlds 3 - WOW! The visuals are stunning - bustling cityscapes, wide expanses of desert, and the starball stadium of dreams - and the characters are brimming with life on every page. It is such a joy to follow our brave trio as they navigate the literal and figurative mazes of Yatta and within themselves. We feel with Jax as he experiences emotions for the first time, and he articulates them with a graceful clarity that impacts everyone around him. Kindhearted An Tzu supports his friends with

    5 Worlds 3 - WOW! The visuals are stunning - bustling cityscapes, wide expanses of desert, and the starball stadium of dreams - and the characters are brimming with life on every page. It is such a joy to follow our brave trio as they navigate the literal and figurative mazes of Yatta and within themselves. We feel with Jax as he experiences emotions for the first time, and he articulates them with a graceful clarity that impacts everyone around him. Kindhearted An Tzu supports his friends with fierce loyalty, sometimes in ways that surprise even himself. And Oona finds joy and meaning in this seemingly impossible task she’s undertaken, with the loving guidance of her friends, old and new, here and gone. With a crew of new characters (including Zelle, the masterful sand dancing rebel, and the misfit teenybopper team), a political system teeming with corruption, and a whole new world to get lost in, 5W3 is a riveting read - a powerful mirror for modern strife and the love we all need to overcome it.

    , Oona is trying to light the red beacon on Moon Yatta. Unlike in some of the previous books, I felt like there was definitely some real-world commentary going on. Moon Yatta is pretty much like the current United States, a superpower with a newly elected populist government, a greed-driven obsession with the economy (at the expense of the environment), and even a for-profit health care system. I'm not sure if all middle graders will pick up on the parallels, but older readers will. I'm not always a fan of politics in fiction, but in this case it isn't too intrusive, and it's quite necessary for the plot. Oona needs to light the red beacon... but the Moon Yattans have encased it in a maze so they can draw on its power. Fear-mongering abounds as the leadership tries to convince the population that if the beacon is lit, their economy will collapse. (Never mind that the beacons need to be lit to prevent an interplanetary environmental catastrophe!)

    There's more nice character development here, and some helpful refreshers about past events. (I couldn't remember why Oona was blue, but we were given a quick recap.) An Tzu is still suffering from vanishing disease, although the kids have found a workaround for the moment. And Jax... well, Jax has probably changed the most out of any of them (except maybe Oona). He's an interesting character, and it's fun to watch his growth.

    I'm still as enthused about this series as I was after I read the first book. So I'll be eagerly awaiting the next one,

    . Do we really have to wait until 2020?

    Oona and friends are off to light the Red Beacon on Moon Yatta. They discovered the beacons have to be lit in order, which is why they were unable to light the Blue Beacon. Jax is taken back to the starball team he played for before and its nefarious owners. Oona and An Tzu attempt to reach the beacon which is covered in machinery.

    Oona and friends are off to light the Red Beacon on Moon Yatta. They discovered the beacons have to be lit in order, which is why they were unable to light the Blue Beacon. Jax is taken back to the starball team he played for before and its nefarious owners. Oona and An Tzu attempt to reach the beacon which is covered in machinery. The Mimic is on this planet too in the form of Stan Moon, a powerful individual who controls much of the planet. They must navigate the red maze around the beacon, rescue Jax and light the beacon all while under the eye of the Mimic.

    I love this series and will be sorry to see it end. I enjoy the growth of all three of our main characters. Oona learns even more about sand dancing and creating portals from Zelle, rebel of Moon Yatta. An Tzu becomes less visible, but gains a prostethic arm and leg. And we learn that Jax has merged with a sacred spirit and become more human and less android. Fantastic storytelling and illustrations.

    Great fantasy series for kids and teens; engaging characters and an epic quest with good vs. evil. Fun to read.

    What really bumped this up to a four-star from me is the fact that the worldbuilding continues to be so amazing, I can't help but love this book. I want to store every page detailing the world in my brain forever. Moon Yatta is right up my alley as far as futuristic magical worlds go - fancy clothes! High-tech utopias! Seedy underbellies and desert wastelands! The world in this volume reminded me strongly of the Finder series (which is one of my all-time favorites), right down to the deserts.

    What really bumped this up to a four-star from me is the fact that the worldbuilding continues to be so amazing, I can't help but love this book. I want to store every page detailing the world in my brain forever. Moon Yatta is right up my alley as far as futuristic magical worlds go - fancy clothes! High-tech utopias! Seedy underbellies and desert wastelands! The world in this volume reminded me strongly of the Finder series (which is one of my all-time favorites), right down to the deserts.

    The downside is I'm still not that attached to the characters, and while the plot progressed much more quickly in this volume, it's still a little slow. There was a lot of downtime, and I wasn't sure how much time was passing - was Oona with the rebels for a day? A week? Longer? I can't be sure. To top it off, a character was introduced that I actually found very interesting - but he dies before the volume is out. RIP :/

    I do look forward to the next volume, though. Again, man... That worldbuilding. I want to know more.
