Gamers and general readers alike will find the Escape from the Past trilogy unputdownable. I sure did, and so did my teen boys. --Daniela I. Norris, author of Recognitions
This is the last of the Escape from the Past Novels from Annette Oppenlander and even though it came to a fabulous conclusion, it has still left me wanting more, but that's just me being greedy. This author has such a fantastic way of describing and bringing alive each character through her skillful use of narrative that it has left me feeling as though I have lost a bunch of friends. I know that this story will stay with me for a good while and for me, that's the sign of a great book. --Netgalley
At Witches' End is the third and final book in the Escape From The Past series! When Max learns that Karl, a former gamer had help him escape from the dungeon the first time that Max had played the game, Max feels the need to return the favor to go back and rescue Karl from his fate within the game. With Karl's help, Max returns to the game but having two years pass since the last time he was in the Middle Ages, nothing is what it seems anymore. As Max soon discovers that nobody really wants him around but soon discovers an old enemy is still hunting for his capture. With secrets coming out about what had happened in those two years and discovering that a friend isn't what she claims she is, it all leads to an epic showdown between good and evil. As Max gets out of the game for the last time, it's up to everyone that had their life turn upside down to put an end to the game once and for all! This book was perfect in the sense that it wrapped up everything that had happened in this series that lead to this book. It was awesome to see what some of the characters have been up to since the first book and to have certain things happen, was perfect for how it needed to end. You don't see many books with a theme like this one very often but if you ever get a chance to read this book or series, you would be glad that you did. Now if we can only get a TV series going for this series, that would be perfect just to see everything happen on the big screen! --Country Girl Bookaholic

But Max runs into a little trouble upon his arrival that may cause him to have to stay in the game for ever or better yet lose his life. Max is always on the run and hiding from someone in the game for one reason or another. He is not sure who exactly he can trust well except for the exception of Bero and Juliana.
Max has to complete his missions and find somethings that were taken from him before he can return home again that is if he can stay out of trouble and alive along enough.
Bero and Juliana’s sister is taken by Ott and Max feels as if it is his fault so he has to rescue her before it is too late. Every time he tries to rescue Adela he ends up in trouble or in a dungeon somewhere and needs someone to bail him out.
Can Max complete his mission; find all of his belongings and save his friends before it is too late? Will Max every see his home again?
The Escape from the Past novels is like a bottle of wine they just get better with time. I fell in love with Max, Bero, Juliana and all the other characters in the first book Escape from the Past: The Dukes Wrath. Then I enjoyed meeting up with Max on his next journey when he met Billy The Kid in book two of Escape from the Past: The Kid and in the third book Escape from the Past: At Witches’ End we get to go with Max to see Bero and Juliana again. Although I have loved traveling with Max on all of his journeys through the past I think that his last journey in Escape from the Past: At Witches’ End is my favorite.
Would I recommend Escape from the Past: At Witches’ End? You bet I would to anyone who loves a good book and likes to travel back in time with a great historical fiction novel.
The story is good, and the writing is good. But I'd have to say, the first and second books were better in my opinion.
The romance was a bit steamier in this one. There were several references to sex and making out. I didn't like the whole premarital sex between Juliana and Max. Max also kind of irritated me in this one. The detail is still exceptional, and the author never fails to make the characters seem real. I could feel Max's emotions of anger, sadness, and relief. I'm glad the author went back to Germany for this book. I love the descriptions of the scenery and food--I could almost taste the herbal teas and meals.
Overall, it was okay. As aforementioned, The story itself is riveting and the writing is fast-paced.
If you're looking for a great holiday gift for a young reader, I highly recommend the trilogy, "Escape From The Past" by Annette Oppenlander.
