Series Finale

Two Truths and a Lion is the final book in THE PACK trilogy. It picks up shortly after book two left off with Sadie, Lindsay, and her brother, Beak, planning to take the fight to IBS and rescue Kate and any other animal lights who have been captured and experimented on.
The plot goes a bit sideways with the introduction of Kleo, another lion light, who is instantly welcomed to the pack and plans to take over as leader. Sadie continues to struggle with how to follow her heart and keep her friends safe. Kleo’s character is charismatic and brings high energy and feeds Lindsay’s recklessness.
Sadie is left unprepared to defend her position as leader against Kleo’s strong personality. They embark on the worst rescue plan possible. Thanks to Taylor and Amy who follow the girls take turns bringing their strengths to the group to keep each other safe. Sadie learns valuable lessons about depending on each other instead of trying to force her way to be chosen.
There are plenty of surprises about IBS when they arrive and finally face Lindsay’s dad. The resolution to the series is quick and gives all the fuzzy feelings to resolve the serious dilemmas they have been facing. Overall, this book worked well for the target audience but likely wouldn’t have the same impact with older audiences.
