I first read this book back when I was in elementary school---it was recommended to me by my school librarian! It’s an amazing sci fi story: three children must fend for themselves in the underbelly of Zimbabwe in the year 2194. I still find myself thinking of this book from time to time.

I loved this book. If you want an awesome, fast read, page turner, this is your book!

General Mastika is a very army- oriented man, and is very protective.

When his children go on an adventure in the city, the journey has just begun!
They get kidnapped, work as slaves, escape, and then find shelter in a very old village. They leave, and being chased find shelter in a friend's mom's house. They are held for ransom there, and when they escape, they are captured once again!

General Mastika hires supernatural detectives (the ear,the eye, and the Arm)
And maybe they find them!

Read this book to find out!

This book has many problems and it got to a stage where scenes and situations became unbelievable and unrealistic. 99% of the time I was so confused because of all the different things going on. I would not have finished the book by choice but I did as I was given instructions to do a school report on the book. I found the book to be boring, making me want to put it down after each chapter. I would not recommend this book to other readers.
