Book Description: Caramel Cinnamon is one lucky elf. She can hardly believe she’s invited to attend the first Intergalactic Youth Summit, on-board the Stellarcadia. Her friends can’t wait to go “hyper,” but even the thought of it chills Caramel to the bone. However, nothing could compare to the icy reception she receives upon her arrival. Keen to get to the bottom of it, Caramel stumbles on a dangerous conspiracy, but no one will believe her. In the exciting conclusion to The Adventures of Caramel Cardamom Trilogy, Caramel will have to do more than outwit her enemies, she will have to convince her friends to take her seriously. For ages 8-12.

My Review

It 's a story full of adventure, magic and technology, is a perfect mix of genres including fantasy,  Sci-Fi and YA.

Caramel is a lucky girl: with her friends takes part in  the inaugural flight of Stellarcardia, a dream ship, full of games and new technologies. Will stay for three days on board and participate in a summit of young people from different planets. Caramel, however, soon becomes clear that there is something strange. There are rooms prohibited, only staff can access it. With the help of her friends she will investigate and discover something shocking ........

The heroine is a princess, shy but very smart and brave. Always manages to come out of the most complicated situations despite her handicap in the leg.

It 's a quick read, written in a simple and compelling way, perfect for children 9-12 years, for the smaller ones (7-9 years), maybe it's easier to read with the help of a parent.

It's the third and final book of the adventures of Caramel Cardamom: you can read without difficulty as stand alone.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
