Voyagers #6: The Seventh Element by Wendy Mass

The Seventh Element (Voyagers #6)My name is Piper, and we're nearing the end of our mission to save Earth. We must travel to the planet Dargon to retrieve the final element needed to create the Source. Without it, we will never be able to return home, and the people of Earth will be doomed. I was able to escape the Omega team's ship before the explosion, but now we're forced to work with their crew. I don't trust Anna and Colin though. It was Anna's idea to kidnap me in the first place. Now, we must work with elves, ogres, and dragons on Dargon, but they do not get along at all. The ogres attack the elves and anger the dragons, and the dragons burn the trees where the elves live. We need the dragons to attack, or the mission will fail. How do we get the fairies to help us force dragons to attack their own fairy village?

You need to read the series from the beginning, or this book will not make sense. All of the books are fast-paced, adventurous, and exciting; I read each of them in less than a day. The author saved new ideas for this last book, as he combined the two teen crews that had been competing in all of the previous books. Colin kept things from running smoothly during the final mission, but Dash was able to take care of him with some creativity. Dash's illness became a major obstacle and created a deadline, literally, to complete the mission. The author made him vulnerable and uncertain but realized his leadership skills were needed to succeed. The two crews were mostly able to work together and brought back memories of the first book when the kids were competing to be chosen for the mission. I highly recommend the series!
