Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

Readers who've already found three Loculi with Aly, Cass, Jack, and sometimes Marco should be satisfied enough with THE CURSE OF THE KING. We find out more about Jack's mystery Massa mom, get a reunion with Marco, and watch the main characters enact a pretty daring plan to save themselves. It all goes by pretty fast with plenty of action fight scenes. Perhaps too fast.

As usual, the series chooses action over careful character development. Sure, it's cool that Jack and friends are so talented -- that's clear -- but in all the foursome's life-threatening situations, you'd expect to see lots more friend bonding and personality on the page.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
