Kids say (5 ):

This trilogy capper (but not series end) takes time to get rolling, but when it does, readers are in for a runaway epic demon-battle thrill. It's exciting at first to find the brave Fletcher and friends in the demon world from Page 1 of The Battlemage, riding on a giant demon, having no idea how they will find their way out again. But the excitement wanes as the chapters drag on -- 21 of them. Not that there aren't flying demons and crazy tentacled demons and Orcs to fight, but readers are missing that sense of grounding in the story as a whole.

When Fletcher and friends are finally home again, the nail-biting starts. Everything has to go right or they're all doomed -- good vs. evil done right. The political conspiracy subplot weaves well into the overall tension. And when Fletcher trains up his soldiers and resettles his refugees, it's always engaging (these are parts in stories that usually drag). And then the battles begin and you're on a runaway train until almost the very end. Readers who crave nonstop action are in for a huge treat.
