Book Review of Above the Veil (The Seventh Tower, Bk 4)

Above the Veil (The Seventh Tower, Bk 4)
Alameda avatar reviewed on + 336 more book reviews

Fourth 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 are back in the Castle in the lowest levels of the Underfolk - dissent amongst some members of the Underfolk at their lot in life has been brewing and Tal and Milla need the help of these people. Milla is sent back to the Icecarl world to inform the Crones of all that has transpired. The Crones 'share' the experiences of Milla and learn of her breaking the Icecarl taboos - what should they do with her? Meanwhile Tal and Underfolk dissenter Crow move up through the multiple levels of the Castle. The suspense continues...

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).
