Format: Paperback
Last time in this space I wrote about how some series seem to slowly crash and burn. That the series runs out of steam and should be ended but for some reason, much like a certain annoying commercial (which should be banned so that IQ scores would instantly rise across the nation and planet) the worn out series just keeps going and going. At the opposite end of the spectrum are those series that are ended leaving the reader wanting more. Such is the case with the final installment of The Fisherman's Son Trilogy aptly titled, "Return of the Golden Age." Author Marilyn Peake has crafted another winner here.

The third book in this moving young adult series finds Wiley O'Mara faced with a problem. How to blend the six boys from the incredible ancient city on the sea floor into his society which is very poor and where strangers are quickly noticed? Everything about the six boys marks them as being different and they can't survive on their own or stay hidden for long. Not only do they need to blend in for themselves and accept what can't be changed, they have to blend in for the society as a whole. Wiley also has to figure out how to help his people understand their magnificent past and to break out of the circle of poverty they have been in for quite some time.

With the help of Elden, Lucinda and others, the aid of seven magical rings and secret caverns on the island, Wiley begins to find answers. Answers that help him aid the newcomers as well as help his own people plan for a future that honors one of the themes of all three books. "Destiny is bigger than what you can understand at the moment" (P. 23). A destiny that he and he alone can fulfill if he has the strength to seek it.

Format: Paperback
The final book in Marilyn Peake's trilogy brings the adventures of Wiley and his friends to a satisfying full circle. Once again, Ms. Peake targets younger readers with an eye toward teaching them wholesome values, as well as piquing their interests in the world around them.

In this final installment, Wiley and the orphans from the City of the Golden Sun discover they have a challenging task at hand: to show the world-weary villagers of Wiley's land their true promise and potential. But how do a group of children convince adults whose spirits are numbed and cynical from centuries of hardscrabble living? Rest assured, Elden the magical dolphin and Lucinda, the guardian of the forest lake, do all they can to help Wiley and his friends in their task.

As with "The Fisherman's Son" and "The City of the Golden Sun," this novel favors ages eight to twelve in its simple, concise reading style. But, again, there are just enough new words to expand young minds. Ms. Peake deserves a Five Star rating for creating a trilogy easy to read, that encourages healthy fantasy and a desire in young readers to learn.

Rebeccasreads highly recommends RETURN OF THE GOLDEN AGE as the final episode of this author's boys' adventures of derring-do & magical places & things.

If you haven't read THE FISHERMAN'S SON & THE CITY OF THE GOLDEN SUN, you will want to before diving in & meeting Wiley & the boys from beneath the ocean.
