About the book: Determined to rescue their favorite teacher, Conner, Lexa, and Melanie confront their worst fears and use their powers in unexpected ways to defeat Lady Nightwing, the treacherous Darkhand leader. But when the trio makes a terrible choice to save Dr. Timberi, their powers may not be enough to keep everyone alive. A thrilling conclusion to the Middle School Magic series!
My Review: Conner, Lexa and Melanie all feel as though they are the ones to blame for their beloved Dr. Timberi's disappearance. They know that they must take the lead in finding him because the Magi council have decided that he's dead and they are no longer planning to search for him. But due to Lexa's special connection with his sigil, the three know that he's alive and being tortured by Lady Nightwing. It's up them to find and rescue Dr. Timberi and somehow save his son Timothy, even though he's done unspeakable things to not only the three of them but also to Dr. Timberi. Can they find it in their hearts to forgive Timothy and move on? Can they rescue Dr Timberi before it's too late?
This book is amazing! Actually, I've loved the whole series. Braden Bell has done a great job getting into the head of these youngsters and making them come alive in these books. These are some of the most well done characters I've seen for middle grade readers. I love that you feel as though you are in the private school that Conner, Lexa, and Melanie go to, as well as everywhere else they go. I'm sad this is the end of the series,but I think it is a good ending. Can't wait to see what Braden Bell comes up with next!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
