The world is similar enough to the "real world" that it's familiar to readers, yet there's the three siblings with special powers that introduce you to the fantastical. The different geographic features of desert, forest and volcanoes keeps it interesting and drives the story. I never felt like it was moving too slowly, I was always wanting more and to know what was going to happen next.
I liked the inclusion of the Giants and the little glimpse into the modern world through the house at the border and the computer in the water. Why is the desert a prison and what else will we find in this world?
The story ended with just enough satisfaction that the mystery of the missing adults was solved and then leaves you wanting to know what's going to happen. Who is the King, what is he planning, how are Clara and Aeden, will the kids find them and get to meet their grandparents? I look forward to their next adventure on the way to solve these mysteries.
