In the final installment of Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles, Nick and Laurie had thought they solved their giant problems when they drove all the giants into the sea. But now, the Grace kids have come back to tell them they may have more trouble coming their way!

It turns out the giants control the population of Hydra, a dragon like creature that is creating sinkholes all over Florida. But with the mermaids refusing to return the giants to the shore, the nixie's still missing and the threat of a destroyed Florida drawing closer, the kids have to take matters in their own hands.

Will Nick and Laurie be able to stop the destruction they unwittingly caused? Can a new giant hunter help save the day? Can Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide help them out of this or are they on their own?

    " A Nice conclusion to the Spiderwick Era we have gone through, It leaves it nice and open to write new stories though, so that's cool. and I love how at the end it encourages the kids to come up with their own faerie tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 2/4/2014

    " just finsh this book its good like them all "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bhindman | 2/3/2014

    " I was expecting a more interesting ending to this trilogy. THis isn't a good book for my former boss to read. She hates worms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/29/2014

    " A good end to a great series. I really liked watching Nick growing up and finding himself during this series. Very creative and imaginative characters and plot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Monika | 1/27/2014

    " Finally the last book in this series! What a relief. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy this journey. Only some bits and pieces created from a fantasy world. Although, in general it wasn't interesting. Very boring and colorless. Not memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie | 1/24/2014

    " A good ending to the story. Nice and happy with a bit of mystery. Laurie, Nick, and Jules pull together their family and fight for the balance of the faerie world with the Grace children. Nice little three book story but nothing that exciting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 1/14/2014

    " Well, I finished it, and I held out hope until end. I thought with the emergence of the Wyrm King this series might save itself and pull out of the nose dive. Alas, twas not the case. The series ends the way it began with a weak plot line and weaker character development. There was opportunity in the final climatic moments for it to at least provide a thrilling mental picture battle, but it falls just short. There's a half hearted attempt in the poem at the end to pull some moral message out of the story, but it really doesn't click, and the attempt there to make it a good verse evil battle is too little too late, we've seen Mulgarath, we know what evil is and neither the giants or the Wyrm King provide that kind of character. So there is no good vs. evil, there is no personal responsibility or development, there is no intense fantasy action, in short there just isn't much here, even the magical characters don't hold the same charm they did in the original five books. In fact, I really wish they didn't try and tie this on as the closing of the Spiderwick chronicles, because really the first series did everything the second didn't and it would be to its advantage to not be associated with these books at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 1/7/2014

    " Less rude than the other two books. It was an OK read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tami | 1/2/2014

    " This book was just OK. It seems like the authors are trying to stretch the premise of the first series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, to get a bit more mileage so I didn't enjoy them quite as much as the first series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 12/28/2013

    " A good ending the the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosie | 11/24/2013

    " These books are very special to me as I poured over them, the spin-off series (Beyond The Spiderwick Chronicles) and the supplementary materials (including the actual Field Guide) when I was younger. However, it is true that they are not fantastically written, but I love them all the same. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 10/5/2013

    " My personal favorite of these three serial novels. Old and new characters, two huge monsters causing chaos and some wonderful pictures. I also like how the 12 year olds mess up constantly, but never give up and keep coming up with crazy ideas to keep trying to save the day! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 9/27/2013

    " A great conclusion to the Beyond Spiderwick series, and I hope this is not the last book Black and DiTerlizzi will work on together. Fans of the original series will love this one, as the Grace siblings return to work together with Nick, Laurie and Jules. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 6/27/2013

    " Last Spiderwick book. These are cute books, read very quickly. Enjoyed the whole series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexis Hartford | 11/6/2012

    " OMG THE RESOLUTION!!! I was sooooo not expecting it. Good for kids. Redundant for teens. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Misty D | 4/27/2012

    " This last book to the Spiderwick Chronicles left so much to be desired. The plot was ok, but also seemed extremely rushed. The cohesiveness that existed in the other books simply wasn't there. This book barely held my interest long enough for me to finish the 202 pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 2/13/2012

    " The last installment in this series seemed a little rushed, plot-wise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Avilas | 9/21/2011

    " I really like this book. It is very advertures and exciting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cammie | 3/2/2011

    " Same as the other Spiderwicks. Really liked it, though a bit short. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 1/17/2011

    " I still like the original series better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marlena | 10/24/2010

    " I spent the summer of 2012 zooming through a few childrens series, this being one of them. I really enjoyed the imagination and detail involved in creating this other world. I cant wait to read these to my kiddos. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicolas | 9/2/2010

    " I think this series took some missteps, but all-in-all I enjoyed it. This was a decent conclusion to the series, but I felt the sloppy inclusion of the primary characters from the initial series slowed things down and didn't really add much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clayton | 12/2/2009

    " I loved this book................. Nick finally faces his fears. His mom had died, he got a new step sister, and a new step Mom all too fast.
    He faced his fears and found out he liked his step sister, and his new Mom. Life continues .............. full of adventures.
