Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Prophesied Three—cat Aldwyn, blue jay Skylar, and tree frog Gilbert—embark upon another bland but cozy heroic quest in this sequel. Paksahara, the treacherous rabbit familiar intent on overthrowing humans, has used the Shifting Fortress to take away human magic. Humanity’s only hope is to send the familiars after the Crown of the Snow Leopard, with which they can reclaim the Fortress. It’s a ridiculously contrived sequel, but there is an interesting revealed element: how humans stole rule of Vastia from animals in the first place. The familiars don’t reflect upon this long enough to doubt that theirs is the rightful path, but readers might. Grades 4-6. --Krista Hutley

About the Author

Adam Jay Epstein spent his childhood in Great Neck, New York, while Andrew Jacobson grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but the two met in Los Angeles. They have been writing together for film and television ever since.

One day, Adam asked Andrew, "Are you familiar with what a familiar is?" And from that simple question, Vastia was born, a fantastical world filled with the authors' shared love of animals and magic. This is the third book in The Familiars series.

Adam Jay Epstein lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Jane, and their daughters, Penny and Olive. Andrew Jacobson, his wife, Ashley, their son, Ryder, and their dog, Elvis, live close by.

The Familiars will be produced for film by Sam Raimi and Sony Animation.

My daughter has loved the first two books of this series. FYI the third book does not have an AR quiz available at this moment. Sure it will come out soon.

Format: Hardcover
I give three stars only because my kid liked this book and the one before hand. I found it an acceptable and unboring. It does seem, like so many out there, to be written as a screen play. As if the author is hoping more for a major motion picture deal. But what is the worst part is its ends in a cliffhanger. It might be ok for a chapter to end this way, but for a children's book it is horrible. The second book picks up after the characters have finished an adventure. Leaving a door open for a sequel. That was ok. But this one is more like the first half of a long book. Not a fun moment to explain to your kid "Yes, that's how it ends. No the next book is not out yet".
