Grimsdon, book 3. Penguin Random House Australia, 2019. ISBN: 9780143794462.
(Age: 10+) Highly recommended. Wow what a stunning conclusion to a wonderful series. Isabella, Griffin and their friends have finally settled into New City after surviving their time in a flooded city in Grimsdon, the first novel in the series, and discovering secrets in New City, the second novel. In Final Storm, they still face wild weather, ice storms, robots and evil. Isabelle reconnects with someone from her past and her friendship with Griffin is tested. Can the group overcome the hidden dangers of New City?
Abela has called this her 'cranky' trilogy because Government were disregarding climate change and her readers has responded enthusiastically to this series, with Grimsdon and New City on YABBA shortlists since the first was published in 2010.
Final Storm is exciting and will be loved by the series many fans. There are many resources to support the series. Teacher's notes are available,  there is a Q and A with Deborah Abela and a book trailer link.
