Reviews of In High Places (2005)
Review by johnafair (2009-02-19)
After the second book in the series, this is a much stronger book. Although, like the two earlier books in the series, it is a Young Adult novel, it has a darker theme than the second in particular.
In that story, all the evil could be blamed on the locals, but in this story, the evils come out of the Home level.
This book deals with the effects of slavery and bigotry on two levels. the girl, Anette Klein, can allow herself to feel some contempt towards the people who surround herself on the level where she and her parents are trading, for they still practice slavery.
However, it quickly gets personal for her when she's taken prisoner by slavers on her way home and taken off-level, where she finds herself a slave and unlikely to make it home.
