The final action-packed book in the MiNRS trilogy.

We do what we do best. Run. Hide. Survive.

The children of Perses must return to Earth. They defeated Major Kirk Thatcher on their adopted planet, but his evil plans are still unfolding. People need to know the truth.

Christopher has a video of Thatcher killing an injured grinder in cold blood. If they can show that to the people of Earth, they might just turn the tide. The MiNRs need to bear witness.

A transport ship might get them back home, or it might send them spinning off into the deepest recesses of space. Is it worth the risk?

Cracks begin to appear in the group. Darcy refuses to leave Perses, the only home she’s ever known. And Pavel’s mistrust of the grinders threatens to destroy them all.

Once again, Christopher has to make tough choices, choices that will cost them dearly. And even when things seem to be going well, there are hidden dangers.

A strange noise on their transport ship signals the return of their worst nightmare.

And the Earth they left years before is not the Earth they will return to now.

Can Christopher and his friends win the race to reveal the truth? Or will they escape one dangerous planet for one far worse?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Always Wins I have been eagerly anticipating the conclusion of Kevin Sylvester’s amazing series MINRS, the story set in a dystopian future where humans have run out of natural resources on Earth and begin “The Great Mission” to mine for resources on other planets, in this case the planet Perses. In the first two installments of the series, we follow Chris and Elena and a group of children who were living on Perses with their families who were all part of the mining colony. When the planet is attacked, all the adults perish, leaving only the children to fight the attackers, making some horrible discoveries along the way. In this last installment, Chris, Elena and the remaining MINRS are on their way back to Earth to finish what they started on Perses, to reveal the truth and bring an end to the fighting and the persecution of others. Given the current political climate in the United States, I really felt like MINRS3 was the book to share today. Kevin Sylvester has masterfully brought the MiNRS fight to a close. There was no sugar coating in the conclusion and right up until the end you are left on the edge of your seat, not knowing the fate of the MINRS and the grinders. This story is one with child soldiers at its centre. In any war, people die but it’s so much more tragic when those people are children, forced into a fight. The MINRS are heroic, never backing down, even when the fight seems hopeless. It’s a tragically inspiring story for all of the young people out their who are finding their voices and who want to fight for change and fight for love. It’s a story that will inspire them to keep up the fight even if the bad guys win because when you fight for love then, as so eloquently put by the author, “Love might lose, but it still makes the world a better place.” Kevin Sylvester dedicated this book to “The types of people who read the acknowledgments” I felt like he was speaking right to me as the acknowledgements at the end of the book are my favourite thing to read. I love finding out what went into the making of a book and the people who helped bring it into the world. Do yourself a favour and read the acknowledgments at the end of this book. In fact, if you do nothing else, pick up this book and read what he has to say. In our current political climate, it will certainly speak to you and your children.
