Third book in a 6 book series, each running from 180 to 200+ pages. Scholastic 'certified' - says ages 9-12 but I'm pushing 60 and enjoyed all 6 books. I think 9 and up is just fine. Enjoyable read for both girls and boys...
NOTE: These books need to be read in sequence.
Tal and Milla continue their adventure and now must travel to the spirit (or dream) world of Aenir. They must find what is called the Codex which has been hidden away somewhere in Aenir. To do so they must break all of the taboos and in the process meet some very interesting creatures in the world of Aenir. The adventure continues at a breakneck pace, with dangers around every corner.
I give the complete series a 4.5 stars - Book one sets up the story line and world parameters so is a little slow to start - but quickly builds up speed and excitement leaving you with a literal cliffhanger waiting for the next book - fully enjoyable for anyone (girls and boys).
Tal and Milla must fight their way through a shifting landscape. They are searching for Codex, a strange and magical object that will decide the fate of their worlds. Many creatures stand in their way-Tal and Millie cannot leave Aenir without the Codex. But finding it might endanger them more than they've ever dreamed...
Book three of the Seventh Tower series, by the author of the Keys to the Kingdom and Abhorsen.
My son has been hooked on this series since he read the first one. Reads them even though he has "outgrown" them.
