5.0 Follows The Series Nicely
In this, it follows the 2nd book nicely. It shows changes in the community that Matt (from the 2nd book) has run away to. He goes back and forth between communities. It shows that he has found his power and just as things are at their worst, he uses his power to save the whole community.
