From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up—The conclusion of this trilogy finds Thea back at the Wandless Academy for a new school year, where she discovers that her friends have grown apart over the summer. Fortunately for Thea, the Federal Bureau of Magic once again needs help, and she and her friends are called on to open a mysterious elemental cube. The cube turns out to contain Nikola Tesla who, in the world of Worldweavers, is the only elemental mage in history able to control all four elements. Thea is also declared an elemental mage, though her powers still appear to be primarily over computers. This change in her status appears to be an authorial device to put her and Tesla on equal footing. An overly complex plot to help Tesla regain his powers and release him from the cube makes the story slow going. In fact, the world building is ever-so-slightly off pitch. New technologies, characters' abilities, and magics are created seemingly at the whim of the author and don't feel the least bit organic. Sadly, the relationships among the teen characters, which were critical to the appeal of the series, have fallen by the wayside here. The ending is oddly open-ended and lacks the typical closure found in final installments.—Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH

Thea is asked to uncover the secret of a mysterious cube. With the help of her friends, Thea uses her elemental powers to reveal what is inside. But unlocking the cube is just the beginning of the intrigue. It all leads back to secrets that started with the only known quad-Elemental, Nikola Tesla.
Tesla somehow created a way to save part of himself after his death. It's up to Thea and her friends to return Tesla to himself. But it will involve the Federal Bureau of Magic, the Alphiri and the Faela, as well as some of Thea's old friends off the Broken Road.
CYBERMAGE takes the WORLDWEAVER series to the next level. Thea is coming into her own powers and the world is changing around her. She has much to learn but also much to teach. Ms. Alexander weaves an intriguing fantasy novel with the third installment of the WORLDWEAVER series. The story is much easier to follow having read the previous novels, but the story can stand alone, as well.
Though the story is written in an easy-to-read manner, the technical aspects may make it above the comprehension of those below the 9th grade. There is nothing offensive that would prohibit someone younger from reading this or the previous novels, but some of the concepts may be harder to grasp for the younger audience. Overall, Ms. Alexander has another hit with CYBERMAGE.

I loved this book. Thea shines at her best here and things about her abilities with the computer and the weaving in Cheveyo's world start to click into place. I had not realized until this book but Theo has grown tremendously and became a strong character. She has to make a few tough decisions in this book, but the caring person she is, she makes it through. This book shows the growth the characters are making, and their leap into adulthood.
In the starts of this book, as it's the third, we already know of all magical allergies our crew of kids have and Alma does a wonderful job of giving us a brief fresher of who's allergic to what with brief happenings from last year with the spellspam. This is gently done to bring us right back into her wonderful magic filled world and jumping right into Humphrey May showing up at the school to talk with Thea.
The mystery of the cube and the wondrous magic that is used in this book kept me turning the pages. I love the elemental magic usage here, as it's nicely laid out to understand easily. And yet it can be built on. The American Indian relation in the symbols. These are played out in different degrees, and they are big parts in the storyline.
This book is wonderful for Young Adult readers. Even though the characters are growing up and Thea is seeing they have boyfriends, it is not filled with the gory violence or sexual content. It is a wonderful read of an intriguing storyline and interestingly fun characters.
This is the last book in the series. But there seems to be small openings for Alma if she were to return to this world. And I would love to read additional books if Alma does make them.
