This series as a whole is excellent fantasy/science fiction that I don't hesitate to recommend to upper middle grade (and older) fans of adventure stories, especially ones who do not want anything medievally (i.e., castles) or paranormal. It's both thought-provoking and entertaining. --Charlotte's Library, CharlottesLibrary.blogspot.com
The fine characterization and interesting story made this just as compelling a read as the previous two books. In fact, this might be my favorite of the series--the story is smaller in scope, which allows for more concentration on character and slower ratcheting up of tension. --Charlotte's Library, CharlottesLibrary.blogspot.com
