A compelling entry in a quality series
on 22 June 2011
I won't bother to break down the story like most other reviewers have done but I will say that the author is a master at creating books that move the story at breakneck speed and this is no exception. This makes it a compelling read for both youngsters and older readers alike.
Although some readers familiar with the series may have been worried that the change in location may have lessened the experience - I can safely say that this is not a issue and this is a great and gritty addition to the series. To those who are new to the series I would suggest they start reading from the first book as they may not clearly understand what is going on.
I would have given this five stars but took one away as I thought ***POTENTIAL SPOILER*** the final battle could have been given more depth/it was all over a bit quickly ***END SPOILER***. Apart from that it was great.
