The authors again fully engaged my interest from the start, beginning with an eerie graveyard scene that, thankfully, I read in the daytime. I find it interesting that the authors started this book from a different character's perspective, although some may have liked it more if they were introduced to familiar characters from the start. The authors added another new perspective when they proceeded to introduce you to one of the Elf Lord's parents back on Earth.
As always, there were thousands of questions that began to relentlessly assail my mind as I progressed, making the book even more thrilling. The characters, I thought, were more diverse and developed better than in the previous book, and I enjoyed seeing a very mysterious new character. I particularly liked how the book didn't concentrate solely on the Elves but on every race of Allyra.
The book had a great plot, and I loved how there was more than one planet discussed. My love for the characters grew as I read The Tide of Unmaking, and I couldn't help laughing at many of their witty sayings. However, this being said, I was a little disappointed to find out that the Lords were older (twenty-one, to be exact). But after reading through the book, I discovered that they were much the same characters I had grown to love.
There were also quite a few errors in this book (typos, misspellings, and the like) that I tried to overlook. Thankfully, I realize that the authors are only human, so they can't catch all of their mistakes.
Overall, this was a great book. To me, it was definitely more dismal than the other two, but still contained many lighthearted scenes. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and was pleasantly surprised that the authors opened up the story to other readers. I have already begun writing my continuation of this amazing trilogy! Thank you so, so much, Mr. Batson! Please keep writing inspirational stories for the youth of this generation!
I enjoyed it a lot. Mystery, good vs. evil, humor, and a little romance. A great fantasy. The end is only the beginning.
It took me a while to remember the large cast of characters but once I got into the story things started to return to my pre-Alzheimer brain. The story is EPIC. Huge in it's telling and scope. The story takes us from one world war into two. Both are about to be changed forever and not for the good. There are many characters, much more then the usual book, so the reader can't nurse these books for months. It's the type you need to keep reading or the plot and charaters will escape you. The characters are colorful and interesting but because of the amount of them they are not very deep.
As an adult I had to suspend some common sense and facts. I excepted this when reading the book because I am not the intended audience. I'm not sure really about the age group these books are good for. I guess it depends on your child. There is a lot of killing - tens of thousands. Not overly graphic but a bit scary none-the-less. The authors do not hide their faith in Jesus Christ. God is lifted up and is the source of both the elves and humans power and hope. For this reason alone the trilogy is worth reading. My son is seven and will have to wait a bit longer to read them.
Now for the problems. As epic and exciting as this story is the overall book needed to be tightened up. I could have easily edited a hundred pages out of the book and nothing would have been lost. Girls will probably enjoy these parts most but to me they were just fillers.
I was impressed to see the authors opened the trilogy up to other authors to continue the series with no fees or permission. It's a great opportunity for a new author to take the story and run with it. There is just enough of an open end to start where they left off.
I recommend the series however it is not the best fantasy for adults. If your kid is used to reading then they will probably enjoy this trilogy. New readers may have problems with the amount of characters and/or the extensive violence of war and death of the innocent.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the home page. I find in doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.
