Veteran author Barbara Mariconda effectively creates an eerie, other-worldly, and magical atmosphere on Ireland's west coast. This third and final series installment leaves the seafaring behind, and has Lucy concentrating more on solving the riddle of the pirate queen's treasure: assembling all the clues, discovering new ones, and trying to fit all the pieces together. The beloved cast of supporting characters return, but make room for intriguing and colorful new characters, too.

Kids will be entertained and satisfied with the end of Lucy's voyage. They'll enjoy following along as Lucy tries to solve the puzzle of her past, with thrills and chills along the way (especially for the younger ones). The ending satisfies, and makes it clear that there will always be more voyages for Lucy and her friends.
