Sil is loving, Sil is principled, Sil is a reluctant hero forced to act. Like Gollum, Toad, Frog, and Kermit, she is a most memorable and endearing amphibian. Lisa Williams Kline, author of One Week of You
The Mother’s Wheel is a work of stunning originality, deep poignancy, and non-stop action. Kirk seamlessly blends the dystopian and science fiction genres, creating a world in which the reader can’t help but empathize with the ‘drafts’ who have been bred to serve the Sowers’ will. The determination and bravery of the story’s narrator, Sil, keeps us turning the pages, wondering where Kirk’s vivid imagination will take us next. There are battles, adventures, and struggles for power galore. But ultimately, The Mother’s Wheel is a haunting, heartfelt meditation on love, loss, and what it means to belong to a family.” Emily Colin, New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Thief and award-winning author of The Seven Sins series
The Mother’s Wheel is the final, thrilling conclusion to the Indie award-winning Bond trilogy. 
The mutant draft Sil, who readers met in The Bond, leads a ragtag group of desperate refugees to hoped-for safety in The Deep. Along the way, they meet an orangutan who loves poetry and guards the narrow path into the jungle. But safety proves elusive as the refugees are pulled back into the war unfolding on the heights. A fearsome bee-mutant attacks as part of his plan to murder his sister, the lovely and dangerous Hive Queen. 
Will love or hate rule? Who, in the end, can you count on as family when you are the only one of your kind? Their destinies entwined, Sil, Dinitra, and Fir reunite and must choose between each other and the worlds they once called their own.

The Mother's Wheel is the final book in The Bond Trilogy by Robin Kirk. In this last book, we follow Sil, a loving, conscientious, and reluctant hero. Sil is unique like all the characters in this world; she is an amphibian who we meet in book one. We have three characters we met in each book, Dinitra, Fir, and now Sil, each desperate to escape the world they live in, each finding out a horrible truth and making hard choices about loyalty. Robin Kirk had created a world with far-reaching possibilities, especially when she introduced us to the many combinations of creatures mixed with others. The orangutan that loves poetry we meet in this third book is just one example.
The characters are wonderfully written, and being able to follow a different character in each book sets the story out from others. If you liked the previous books, you want to know what happens with all three characters in this final book.
