My Rating: 5/5

I really have enjoyed marathoning this series. This is the last book available at my library and I plan to pick up the last one published this weekend when I'm in the city. I look forward to finishing the series although I am waiting for the last 2 books to be published. And I'm more than willing to wait. I've found that these books have gotten far more serious and complex then what I had at first suspected. I find the characters endearing and powerful. As well, the setting is interesting and beautifully illustrated. I really found this book to more of YA book than Middle Grade but that's a personal choice.

Thanks for reading,
