No anticlimactic ending here, as the final book in the Pledge trilogy has its fair share of exhilarating and heart-stopping moments. Derting doesn’t hesitate to place characters in front of the metaphorical firing squad, but the camaraderie between characters and the romance between Charlie and Max counterbalance the darker moments. Expect a tear or two, as the conclusion holds many surprises for series fans.

When a startling package arrives from Queen Elena, Charlie knows exactly what she’s got to do next: sacrifice herself for her queendom’s peace. But she may have fallen into a trap. When Max learns of her intentions, will he be able to rescue her in time? (MARGARET K. MCELDERRY, Jan., 304 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9781442445628, HC, 12 & Up)
