I’m Valkyrie White. I’m fifteen. Your government killed my family.

Those People in the black helicopters are relentless, and they destroy Bo and Valkyrie’s way of life by killing their parents. After that they decide to do everything they can to spread their message, that Those People are dangerous.

In this thrilling yet mysterious adventure young Valkyrie must go on missions for their cause and hope that everything goes according to plan.

I give this book 2.5 stars (out of five). I really like the plot and the way it switches through different times throughout the story. We get one chapter of the present and then some flashbacks to some time in the past, where we get more information about the main character and her life. This is the type of story where even at the end you don’t have all the answers and there are still some mysteries to be solved, which can be frustrating for some people.

Valkyrie and her brother Bo are orphaned after both their parents are killed by Those People in the black helicopter. Bo finds work to keep them alive but it’s a bad place and they need to break free, they join a family Bo met while working and stay there for a while. Helping them out and spreading the message about the balck helicopters and Those People, Valkyrie goes on one final mission.

[Spoiler warning, skip the next paragraph to avoid them]

The ending is really satisfying, she finally completes her final mission and does what she was trying to do the whole time, despite having to improvise and change her plan. I really liked the ending, it was my favourite part; it ties the whole story together.

I really enjoyed reading this book although it is kind of frustrating not getting answers and being sort of confused at certain points, I still think the story’s good and entertaining.
