Following on from the others the story developes and keeps the reader gripped . Just kept saying one more chapter and before I realised it was finished . A great read for all ages . There are a few tears and a lump in the throat at the end . Bring on the next .
Got sucked in reading series with son. Later books in series are less clunky than earlier ones - book 6 (last in series) is best but you'll have to read this one to get there. Possible spoiler : this book does contain a death though no gory details.
