Now before I delved into this book, I was convinced that the series would at least require two or three more volumes to conclude the story, but the way Kazu managed to wrap up important plot details exceeded me this time around. We get to see a rather touching conclusion to Max's story arc, and discover more about the two malevolent forces in this story, the Voice and the Elf King. The new book also marks the return of the old Resistance members who fled from the city of Kanalis in The Stonekeeper's Curse, including Balan and Doctor Weston.
There's a lot more focus on Navin this time around, which I think was necessary and provided him with some needed development. His friendship with Alyson is also explored, but thankfully, Kazu includes no cheesy child romance between the two. There are a few new faces as well. There's an elf woman named Riva, the mayor of Lucien, who is working on a mission to help bring the citizens of her city to safety, as creatures referred to as "Dark scouts" (a throwback to an earlier volume) begin to envelop their refuge. Her adviser, an old and lovable robot named General Pil, also aids Navin and Aly in their mission. There are also two new, young recruits named Robert and Trisha whose roles in the series are ambiguous at the moment.
Unlike the previous book (Prince of the Elves), which I believed was a transition that focused more on informing us readers about characters' pasts and the abilities of the stone, we got to see a definitive progression in the ongoing conflict between the elves and humans, and a climactic battle seems to be in the works for the next volume. This is not a book that I suggest you jump into without having read any of the previous entries, as some parts may be confusing and/or less effective. I have already invested so much into this series, so I will definitely be looking forward to more.
excellent books! great for the imagination.
