Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—The conclusion of this trilogy finds Thea back at the Wandless Academy for a new school year, where she discovers that her friends have grown apart over the summer. Fortunately for Thea, the Federal Bureau of Magic once again needs help, and she and her friends are called on to open a mysterious elemental cube. The cube turns out to contain Nikola Tesla who, in the world of Worldweavers, is the only elemental mage in history able to control all four elements. Thea is also declared an elemental mage, though her powers still appear to be primarily over computers. This change in her status appears to be an authorial device to put her and Tesla on equal footing. An overly complex plot to help Tesla regain his powers and release him from the cube makes the story slow going. In fact, the world building is ever-so-slightly off pitch. New technologies, characters' abilities, and magics are created seemingly at the whim of the author and don't feel the least bit organic. Sadly, the relationships among the teen characters, which were critical to the appeal of the series, have fallen by the wayside here. The ending is oddly open-ended and lacks the typical closure found in final installments.—Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH

Review

Praise for SPELLSPAM: “An incredibly enjoyable tale that blends reality, legend, and magic in one of the freshest fantasy narratives this year.” (KLIATT (starred review))

More About the Author

"I have a wonderful occupation; I dream for a living." Alma Alexander
----- ------ ----- ----- -----

Alma Alexander, the 'Duchess of Fantasy,' was born on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists. When she was ten, her family left Europe and moved to Africa. Since then she has lived in several countries on four continents and now lives in America with a husband she met on the Internet

She has written three million words in more than 20 books and one of her novels, "The Secrets of Jin-shei," has been published around the world in 14 languages. The heroine of her popular Young Adult Worldweavers series is as American as Harry Potter is British. The first book in another young adult series about a shape-shifting Were family will be published shortly.

When asked what she would be if she weren't a writer, she quotes Ursula LeGuin's answer to that question: "Dead."

Alma is a punaholic and a chronic worrier, one of those people who proves that real pessimists are truly born and not made. She is owned by a cat. She was born on the fifth day of July (the day after America), six years before man walked on the moon, which makes her a cancer according to the Western horoscope and a water rabbit according to the Chinese one.

Format: Hardcover
Thea has returned to the Wandless Academy, but everything seems off this school year. It doesn't help that her roommate, Magpie, seems to have entered another world, wanting to be part of the popular crowd. But like the past, Humphrey May shows up at her school, and Thea is off on another adventure with her friends.

Thea is asked to uncover the secret of a mysterious cube. With the help of her friends, Thea uses her elemental powers to reveal what is inside. But unlocking the cube is just the beginning of the intrigue. It all leads back to secrets that started with the only known quad-Elemental, Nikola Tesla.

Tesla somehow created a way to save part of himself after his death. It's up to Thea and her friends to return Tesla to himself. But it will involve the Federal Bureau of Magic, the Alphiri and the Faela, as well as some of Thea's old friends off the Broken Road.

CYBERMAGE takes the WORLDWEAVER series to the next level. Thea is coming into her own powers and the world is changing around her. She has much to learn but also much to teach. Ms. Alexander weaves an intriguing fantasy novel with the third installment of the WORLDWEAVER series. The story is much easier to follow having read the previous novels, but the story can stand alone, as well.

Though the story is written in an easy-to-read manner, the technical aspects may make it above the comprehension of those below the 9th grade. There is nothing offensive that would prohibit someone younger from reading this or the previous novels, but some of the concepts may be harder to grasp for the younger audience. Overall, Ms. Alexander has another hit with CYBERMAGE.

Format: Hardcover
We pick up with Thea and her magicless friends in another school year at the Wandless Academy. But everyone is starting to grow up and changing - new friends and boyfriends. Thea still feels guilty for what was done to Diego in the last book and having troubles dealing with it. Humphrey May, from the FBM, shows up at the school to see if Thea could help him again, with the Elemental Cube that was found in the bag the Trickster had. Thea brings her friends together again and could unlock new possibilities for her and her friends.

I loved this book. Thea shines at her best here and things about her abilities with the computer and the weaving in Cheveyo's world start to click into place. I had not realized until this book but Theo has grown tremendously and became a strong character. She has to make a few tough decisions in this book, but the caring person she is, she makes it through. This book shows the growth the characters are making, and their leap into adulthood.

In the starts of this book, as it's the third, we already know of all magical allergies our crew of kids have and Alma does a wonderful job of giving us a brief fresher of who's allergic to what with brief happenings from last year with the spellspam. This is gently done to bring us right back into her wonderful magic filled world and jumping right into Humphrey May showing up at the school to talk with Thea.

The mystery of the cube and the wondrous magic that is used in this book kept me turning the pages. I love the elemental magic usage here, as it's nicely laid out to understand easily. And yet it can be built on. The American Indian relation in the symbols. These are played out in different degrees, and they are big parts in the storyline.

This is a good book. After finishing this book, I was wishing for the next. Perhaps we can read more of Terry's, Cat's, Tess', Ben's, Kristin's, and Thea's adventures. I enjoy exploring this universe Ms. Alexander has created. Nikola Tesla is a fascinating person, no matter what his wizardry. Once again the imagery of magic is fun to read; it would be good to read more about the impact of magic on society. What does the FBM do? How will her family react to her growing power? Plenty of fodder for a new book.

In this conclusion to the Worldweavers series, Thea has finally come into her own. She has grown so much through out this series. The author found away for everything to make sense and still keep you very much entertained. All I can say is if you loved "A Wrinkle in Time" then you would love this book. Happy Reading!!!!
