My latest review is Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter
Mr. Cahn’s book is a work of fiction that nevertheless holds a very real scenario and warning for our times. A man, Nouriel, meets a mysterious stranger who gives him artifacts that he calls harbingers. Each harbinger has a seal with either writing or a type of picture on them.

I’m afraid this sums up my impression of Changes as well, especially because the “trilogy” is not yet over. That’s right — there will be a fourth book in this series. A fifth? A sixth? I can’t say, but definitely a fourth................
