In Among the Barons, Luke is thrust into a potentially deadly situation when when Smitts Grant, the real brother of his assumed identity, starts attending his school.

As is usual with this series, Haddix does a good job of answering just enough of my questions to satisfy me without causing me to loose interest in reading the next book. A new dimension was added to the conflict between the government and the shadow children and we got to see some old friends from the other books as well.

My only complaints are that the book, as is also usual for the Shadow Children series, is very short, even for the middle grade/ early YA audience (less than 200 pages in large type) and that the intrigue could have been explained better as some parts left me confused as to who wanted what and what was going on, and not in a good way.
