Book Description

6 Jan 2011 Imaginarium Geographica
Seven years after the events of The Shadow Dragons, John, Jack and Charles are finally able to return to their beloved Archipelago of Dreams. But even as their return is celebrated by old friends, new concerns shadow the reunion, namely the threat of Echthroi, the primordial Shadow, but, perhaps even worse, the apparent splintering of Time itself. Now, the Caretakers must fight against their most fearsome enemy ever and attempt to restore Time. They must journey through a forgotten door from the destroyed Keep of Time in order to seek out the Dragon's Apprentice. If they fail, it will mean the end of both of the worlds. But success will carry its own price - a price that may be too high even for the Caretakers to bear.

4.0 out of 5 stars A graet series 16 Jan 2011
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
James writing to me is like a huge slice of cake, there's so much decoration as well as great ingredients that it's impossible to take it all in on the first reading. As such I just love the chance to reread the whole series just prior to starting the next title in order to refresh my memory as well as having the chance to enjoy the magical world unveiling itself.

What James also does well is give the reader a world full of imagination backed with some great prose alongside some seriously delightful dialogue. Back that up with a master's touch and understanding of pace as well as characters that you just can't let go after the final page is turned and you've got a real gem of a series to enjoy. Great stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but sometimes confusing = 3.5 stars 1 Nov 2010
By KTMae - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love the idea of this series, all these famous authors (long dead and gone) working together (mostly) to stop the destruction of an alternate "fictional" world. However, with that said, there are too many characters to keep straight in this series. And, with this 5th book, Owen adds even more characters! I am an English teacher and know many of the authors, however, I have several students who have read these books and they easily get confused and miss many of the underlying puns and jokes. Owen really, REALLY, needs to include a list of characters in these books, explaining who these people are in real life, as well as how they are connected to the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again been blown away 21 Oct 2010
By Silvermage06 - Published on
I have enjoyed every one of the books in this series and have read each more then once. And, each time I always seem say this one or this one is the best. And, once again that rings true for this the fifth one in the series. But, this time, unless the next ones are even better, which if they are I am certainly going to have long nights reading in the future, I have truly found my favorite of the series so far. To anyone whose has yet to read the series, if you like fantasy, read it, and if you have been following the books then you best get to reading this one and soon. Once again my hats off to the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great installment in a great series 4 Jan 2011
By A. KAPLAN - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not just another fine installment in the Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica series, this book seems to mark a change of direction, setting up new goals for our heroes. I love this series, but if James Owen's characters were as deep and intricate as his plots, it would be perfect. That aside, it's a great book in a great series, but absolutely not the place for new readers to start.
