Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Scholastic brings on more good authors with BLOOD TIES. Garth Nix and Sean Williams keep the story moving and the likeable main characters focused on teamwork and defeating the enemy. The climactic battle is the most exciting in the series yet. Still, the same problem remains three books in: so much focus on the simple task at hand -- get the talisman, where's the next one? -- and not much on the long game. The Devourer shows up finally, but just as a one-note bad guy with the scary name. Here's hoping the next in the series gives him a bit more depth.
