Format: Paperback
I am a big fan of this series, and very much admired the first two volumes. This third effort felt very weak in the middle, but that was mostly setup for a strong finish, so be patient.

There is a very muddled sub-plot involving war profiteering, and the characters lose focus in the middle, but again, be patient.

This is still a superior series for young readers, but be warned that this volume is not as high energy and straightforward as the first two books, and some parts may need explaining for the youngest readers.

Format: Paperback
I think people of all ages would like this book regardless of gender. I bought this book when I was in the 3rd grade and I'm re-reading it now. It proves just how much Lief, Barda, and Jasmine all truly need each other, despite how different they are. Their differences may annoy them. But they are all beneficial to each other. Without one, the rest would fall. Where would Jasmine and Barda be without Lief's quick thinking at the tree? Would they have escaped if Lief didn't stick up for Tira? Likewise, Lief and Jasmine are both too emotional and outspoken. While Barda has more emotional self-control, which the too kids really need. And Jasmine has a good point about Tom. Personally, I like Tom. Maybe it's because I would do the exact same thing in Tom's shoes. I highly doubt people would actually do differently from Tom unless they would want to end up dead or have their store end up closed. It's my 2nd time reading so I already knew everything. But it's a great book for all ages. And I do think the author is trying to encourage deep thinking in kids. Is what Tom doing really right? I think she's trying to get kids to really think about situations instead of going through life with a knee-jerk reaction. Of which, there are adults who could REALLY learn from this book.

I have a very advanced reading daughter. When my mother suggested these books, I was a little worried but she LOVES them. I read the first, Forests of Silence, aloud to her. The second book, Lake of Tears, we read together. So I ordered the rest and she can't get enough of them or read them fast enough!
