One of the things I love most about this series is how well I can hear the voice of the author. I know not everyone is lucky enough to know authors and hear things in their cadence, but I don't even need to try hard for this. I hear Carrie telling me this story in my head, just as I did in the first Time Stoppers book. This makes sense, as the story was created as an oral story years ago, but I love that it hasn't lost that flavor through the years. The other thing I love about this story is that Aurora and Bar Harbor feel like the real places they are. The book does travel beyond these towns, and I hope it is just as realistic there, as it is in Maine.
There were still moment when I got annoyed that Annie was so hard on herself, but when I think about myself, I realize that I react similarly. So maybe it's one of those situations where things hit home too closely? I also really felt for Jamie. In this book, he's still struggling with whether or not he will become a troll, and people don't always react well to that.
There are a few new characters I love. I don't want to spoil much of the book, but my favorite has multiple legs that can be used for different things at the same time.
Recommended for juvenile fantasy readers or realistic fiction readers that can cross over to fantasy from time to time.
