Great conclusion to this series. I thought it was a great young adult way to handle the book. (Aimed any older, and the two main characters would have ended up married, but I actually like that they don’t.)
I honestly didn’t see Tal’s ultimate path coming until it was staring me in the face, so kudos to Garth Nix for keeping this an engaging actually suspenseful story.
I did find the ending a bit hurried, but it probably does work in the context of the audience for this book, so I’m trying not to mentally whine too much.
I definitely have to go see what else is available of Nix’s down in the children’s room in my library.
