    " There were way too many deaths in this book, and I wouldn't recommend it to smaller children. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul | 2/17/2014

    " I hate the ending, it felt like the author got bored and just tied a neat little bow on the series, there was so much left unwritten... "

    " I am clearly a fan of fantasy and PW Catanese does it best. I have enjoyed this series as well as his stories based on fairy tales. This third book in this set was something that I was looking forward to with anticipation. It did not fail. The book is fast, moving, and utterly filled with surprises. Even though I read for pure enjoyment, sometimes books make me wonder about our world and what we might look like to other worlds if it came to that. In this book Umber and his friend are transported to a place where things like guns and metal ships do not exist. Umber uses his knowledge to help the people while his friend finds the society ripe for taking over. In the end Hapenstance, the meddler, finds a solution that forces him to make decisions that he would rather not make. Sadly, it is the end of this series, but gladly, the ending left me satisfied and settled. I love how things were tied up at the end. Great read for lovers of fantasy. Great read for boys who like strong characters and action. Probably best for strong readers in 5th grade and up. "

    " I am just not sure what to think about this one. I mean, the ending just completely caught me off guard. I liked it, and everyone is happy, but it's also kind of sad... Huh. Well, if anyone wants to read something very fun and interesting, then I would recommend this trilogy to them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 1/27/2014

    " This is a hard book to rate, as my opinion of it varied so greatly as I read it. I got feeling with this book that it HAD to be wrapped up in a trilogy, and so things had to move faster than would be ideal. Consequently, this book is filled with one momentous moment after another, making me think of the character Umber and his manic energy. The culmination of this book is when Hap finally learns to use his powers. The 'battle' scene with the Executioner is absolutely fabulous... I don't think I've enjoyed a sequence that much in a long time. But surrounding that scene there are a lot of gaps. How Hap came to achieve his powers, why he is so 'powerful', etc. These felt like they either weren't answered or phoned in (hypnotism? really?). So in the end, I can't give the book 5 stars, although the sequence with the Executioner is worth at least 6. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/21/2014

    " Interesting children's fantasy. Last book in the series--I enjoyed reading all the books in the three book series. Creative. (Violent at times.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/16/2014

    " I have loved all of the books up to this point but the author really outdid himself with this book. Without giving anything way all I can say is that meddlers sure are interesting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb | 1/15/2014

    " An incredible end to this great series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hope Kuniholm | 1/11/2014

    " And the wrap-up, good and bad royalty, magic, computers, different worlds divided by an ocean, ships and ocean creatures, meddlers, and what is the significance of eyeballs. Wow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 12/22/2013

    " This was very fun and exciting end to a super series! Loved it, but am sad to see it end. There are plenty of twists and turns, and a very satisfying epilogue! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/12/2013

    " I liked this one, but not as much as the first two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 12/5/2013

    " You know you're reading a great series when you are angry it's all over. This one does not disappoint. How the Umber series is not the new Harry Potter, I'll never know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megengelter | 11/25/2013

    " Enjoyed the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 2/25/2013

    " Sad to see this series come to end! I loved all the characters in these books and I think P.W. Catanese did an excellent job in weaving so many different interesting, complementary, and contrasting personalities together. I'll miss you, Oates, you truthful brute! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 12/20/2012

    " A good read and a decent series. It doesn't stand out but I still enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 11/30/2012

    " I really liked this book until the end. I'm not sure I liked the ending much at all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B. | 9/20/2012

    " Though it was almost as enjoyable as the prior books, I felt that it was perhaps somewhat rushed in sections. Still good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzy (short for Elisabeth) Catland | 6/22/2012

    " It was my most favorite book EVER!!!! I found it so intriguging! Especially Chapter 10. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather-Lea | 12/14/2011

    " I really liked this whole series- I thought it fresh compared to the other basic story lines that have been written about at the same time. So sad I hadn't heard of it and so happy that I frequent the library enough to have noticed the whole series on the shelf waiting for me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronna | 10/1/2011

    " Truly a perfect ending to a fantastic series! There was a constant flow of suspense with unpredictable conclusions, classical fantasy creatures, wrapped in timeless moral lessons of kindness and solving problems without violence. I am hoping for a part two series-- Come on P.W., only three books!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 9/26/2011

    " This book was all right, except for the ending, which was very disappointing, especially for the end of a three book series. The end was climactic enough, certainly, and very action packed, but emotionally it was a big let down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/13/2011

    " A great ending to the trilogy. Fascinating characters, creatures, and adventures. Lots of excitement. The Princess Diana thing was a little random, though. I would have loved more details on the overall "meddling." Highly recommend this trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelle | 6/12/2011

    " I liked the first two books in this series, but this one tried too hard to finish up at the end. It felt rushed and I didn't particularly like the way that he finished it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tripleguess | 2/14/2011

    " I hate to say this about any Catanese book, but the ending spoiled the entire trilogy for me. It was way, way too modern. 'Nuff said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryce | 2/11/2011

    " Very intriguing idea, but I didn't find it hard to put down like other books. I don't know why because it was right up my alley. Can't put my finger on it... "
