The villains are equally well-drawn; they are as easy to hate as they are to pity, and they remind us that few are beyond the possibility of redemption and forgiveness. As sad as I am that the series is complete, I am glad to add it now to the list of books that I would eagerly pass on to my own child.
Well well well. This was the third and final installment documenting the adventures of Jim Morgan, his pretty love interest Lacey and his adopted family the brothers Ratt. In some ways I was happy to have the trilogy end. The action was intense with a huge cast of magical Creatures, objects and heroes and villains abound. The writing style I can only label as easy going was incredibly alluring and consistent throughout the trilogy. The world building and character development were as rich as ever. The only gripe I had with the book, besides the unlikely saccharine ending was the numerous plot lines that were not sewn up or even addressed by the end. There were promises to magical Creatures that were blatantly ignored, a promise to return a family back to normal through magical means that was sadly neglected and a sense of neglect in the end. All in all this was a really cute coming of age, middle grade, read that took to the high seas and spanned the world over.
Characters were very typecast. The cast was chock full of all kinds of mythical creatures - but at least the mashup in this book was better than the Time Hunters saga by Ashmore. That was groan worthy and over the top, at least this came across as kindof believable,...even though the book took forever to get into. I almost walked away after the first couple chapters, but once I start reading a book I always* finish it.
There were a few "surprises" that I had assumed were knowledge until the "surprise" was revealed. Anyone who's really read books before will see them coming; kids may be surprised ... depending on how well read they are. The ending of the book was also predictable (at to me, who had only read this last installment of the trilogy) and I felt there were several loose ends just from this one book! I suppose we are to believe that our main man and his friends kept their word and did what they promised a couple different people, but these promises aren't mentioned at all in the "what do we do now" part of the book. They at least deserved to be mentioned in a list of things to do or something.
So, all in all, its better than 2 stars, but I'm not sure it quite deserves 3 stars. So it falls somewhere between 2.5 stars to 3 stars...maybe the book is more compelling if you're already invested in the series. Personally, even if the first two books were offered for free, I wouldn't go back and read them.
