danger in the dark world...fighting for freedom..a castle,,, a third side,,evil,,ultimate destruction?
Book five of the Seventh Tower, by the author of Abhorsen and The Keys to the Kingdom.
Fifth 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.
Invasion of the Castle begins. The Veil that covers the world from sunlight and prevents shadow creatures from the world of Aenir from invading is in danger of being extinguished. Tal and Crow must keep the Veil in place at all costs. Milla has become the Icecarls War-Chief and the fight is on. A page burner of action and more twists and turns. Well done!
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).
Each book continues the fast pace, and the story continues to grow with ever changing new requirements and additions added as the story progresses.
