Given that the author allows readers to follow many differentcharacters, including the villain, this is an exciting book. Even closeto its conclusion, the author keeps readers guessing as to how all thepieces will come together. I found nothing predictable about this bookat all. The battle lines are pretty much drawn already, but the battleitself still has to happen. Readers will enjoy the little romances thatdevelop between certain characters along the way. Besides, throughSeascape, the author offers some pretty imaginative tech for fans ofscience fiction. The final battle and everything that led up to it arewell executed. Having found this book fascinating and enjoyable, I would recommend it easily to the reader who enjoys young adult fantasytrilogies.
