Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Magnificent 12: The Key: “The series continues to gather steam, driven by a winning mix of danger, suspense, and daffy doings.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for The Magnificent 12: The Trap: “Grant’s talent for quick dialogue and vivid descriptiosn still shines and will have fans eager for book three.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for The Magnificent 12: The Call: “Grant’s brand of action and humor should satisfy both those readers who get down with fantasy and those who prefer to send it up.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

From the Back Cover

Time is running out for Mack MacAvoy and the Magnificent Twel—er—Seven! In just a few short days, the Pale Queen will emerge from her earthly prison to destroy the world.

But Mack and the Magnificent Twel—er—Seven are all but powerless against the Pale Queen and her evil daughter, Risky, unless they can assemble the other five Magnifica. The first step is to convince the evil traitor Valin to come over to the good side, a task that will force Mack to face his pogonophobia once and for all.

(What? You haven't heard of pogonophobia? It's a real thing, we swear. At least, it's a thing for Mack. A serious thing. You'll see.)

If they can convince Valin to switch sides and assemble the other four Magnifica, the Pale Queen won't stand a chance. It will all be over!

Maybe.

Mack's hilarious adventures continue in this fourth and final installment in Michael Grant's Magnificent 12 series.

More About the Author

Michael Grant was born in a manger.

Okay, no he wasn't. And that was a stupid thing to say. There was no manger. It was a log cabin. A log cabin in Los Angeles.

Or possibly a trailer.

And then while defending his country (technically it was his father, he was just an Army brat,) he moved all over the country and to France and became the incredibly well-educated, well-rounded, well-adjusted . . .

Yeah, okay that last part's a lie, too. The moving everywhere thing is true. But the sad reality is that Michael's a rootless, disconnected, indifferently-educated, sullen, obnoxious, disaffected misanthrope. With no hair. I mean seriously: look at the man's head. Do you see hair? No.

Where was I? I mean he.

Michael Grant is married to Katherine (K.A.) Applegate. They've been together for 30 years. Which doesn't say much for Katherine's judgment does it? And they've been writing for 20 years, sometimes as partners -- BOYFRIENDS/GIRLFRIENDS, ANIMORPHS, EVERWORLD -- and sometimes on their own.

Michael and Katherine have two kids, Jake 12 and Julia 9. (Feet tall. Get it? 12 feet tall? Ah hah hah. Yeah, okay: not funny.) Anyway, the point is that Michael Grant is the author or co-author of 150 books. Yeah: 150. Most recently the critically-acclaimed GONE and HUNGER.

No, really: critically-acclaimed by VOYA, Booklist, School Library Journal, KLIATT and Publishers Weekly. And best of all by Stephen Freaking KIng himself! Oh, yeah: THE Stephen King. Of course Kirkus dumped on him, but Michael would like to make it clear that Kirkus is in no way a collection of illiterate halfwits. No! Never would Michael say such a thing.

Michael can be reached on Twitter @theFAYZ, or on Facebook as "authorMichaelGrant."

My (almost) 9 year old son and I have been reading this series together since the first book came out and without fail we finish each book in eager anticipation of the next. On the downside, it's our bedtime story and he NEVER wants to go to bed because he NEVER wants me to stop reading. And I have to admit, there has been more than one occasion on which we've read an extra chapter or two (or three) because mama just couldn't put the book down either. :D Can't wait for the next book!

*On a parental note, my son is definitely on the young side for the series in that it does include issues of boy/girl crush stuff,and attitudes more in line with the adolescent crowd, but nothing a two second conversation here and there can't deal with. That's why we read it together. :)

My son has the other 3 books and read those last year. He hasn't read this one yet. He is reading the others again to refresh his memory on what has happened. I got this for his birthday this past May. out of all his presents (which he got some pretty cool presents) he was super excited to get this book since we've been waiting for it to finally come out...The series is a really good! I enjoyed reading them with him.

If you have read the first three books then you will certainly enjoy this one. The twist in this book definitely got me.

I basically finished this book in a day. It was great. The plot was fast paced and there weren't any stopping points! As with the rest of the series, the humor really shone through and I found myself laughing out loud for a large portion of it. Especially the footnotes. They were probably the highlight of the entire series (Go Fighting Pupfish!).
I love the characters. In particular, Mack and Golum whose imperfections make both of them insanely lovable.
It was amazing how Michael Grant somehow made such a silly book somehow profound, meaningful, and exciting all at the same time. He must truly be an amazing author.
This was such a nice and... refreshing... story. The ending was amazing. I felt that the conclusion to this series was so nicely well rounded and satisfying. That is a feeling that is always great to have and disappointing to lack.
All in all, this is an amazing book in an amazing series.
