I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion of the book.
Another adorable installment in the Delilah Dusticle adventures!
The series grew up a bit in this book. Delilah and the gang go on an adventure in India to save Dev’s sister, Kirin. Kirin is being threatened by a powerful, magical dust storm so of course Delilah is just the girl to save the day.
Both Delilah and her powers over dust grow during this adventure. I am always surprised by how interesting Delilah’s powers are. You wouldn’t think that being able to control dust would be an enviable skill, but it really is. I won’t spoil your fun by explaining why Delilah’s powers are so impressive, but they didn’t fail to entertain.
As always, there was a nice little lesson included with the fun. The author does a great job of explaining grief and how to deal with it without giving into bitter and angry feelings. And this is all explained in a manner that is easy to understand.
This book was scarier than the other two, dealt with grief, and did include adults enjoying a sip of champagne so I would recommend it for the older kids. This was still a very clean book, the reading level is just higher than the rest of the series.
I think this may be my favorite in the Delilah Dusticle series. Things just keep getting more interesting. These books are always short, but a lot of content in packed into the small package!
I would recommend this book for ages 12 and up.
