I do not want to give away any juicy secrets from the book, so all I’ll say is that for anyone who has been awaiting the final installment of the Undertaker trilogy I promise you it is well worth the wait. I, for one, felt as if no time had passed between the closing of Mistle Child and the opening of Lych Way. Within three pages I was consumed by the story and I forgot anything that may have happened in between. Mr. Berk does a wonderful job at providing entertainment while also exploring the delicate dialogues that surround the nature of death, self-discovery, and the sacrifices that breathe life into the world. The Undertaker trilogy presents young readers with a hero who grows and matures with them and, therefore, a safe and exciting means to explore complicated ideas. But, the books are not just for young adults; the characters are woven together splendidly, as the faults and heroics of each person winds throughout the book(s). There is also a wide breadth of delightful detail pertaining to death lore and myth which are more than capable of keeping anyone entertained.
The rich and intricate tapestry of folklore, adventure, and just the right thread of spine tingling terror that began in Death watch is bound and brought together in a satisfying end to the tale of the Undertaker in the opening of Lych Way. Read it. Enjoy it. I know I did.
All three books were well worth the time spent reading them, even when I couldn't turn out the lights for several evenings, because Dr. Berk is a master storyteller. His attention to detail shows his reverence and deep understanding of mythology and history. In the end, we have not only been given the gift of a wonderful story, but he has gently taught us to become better readers.
