Review: AMONG THE ENEMY by Margaret Peterson Haddix


Rating: 3/5 stars

The sixth installment in the Shadow Children Sequence follows Matthias as the population police take him and other children from their school in the middle of the night and force them all to work for the new government. 

This book is my least favorite of the series. I just didn’t love Matthias’s story and I felt less connected to him as a character than our other protagonists, probably because we’ve never seen him before, whereas the other viewpoints we’ve had besides Luke have been side characters that we already knew. 

It was nice to see how Matthias’s character arc connected with Luke and our main characters in the end and showed us some implications for the final book. This is such a great series.
