So, I’m deviating from #SciFiMonth for a moment because I was able to get my hands on an ARC copy of today’s read, and I simply devoured it.
Remember last month when I started in on Sage’s world, and simply fell in love with it? Well, as always I was behind the times in discovering the read but thankfully the final book of the trilogy comes out TODAY! This is one of those books where not only did I have all. the. feels. but wow–I think I have a new favorite middle grade series.
I was provided an ARC copy from my NetGalley. I was not compensated in any way for my review (cross my heart) nor did I promise a good rating. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine. Marvelous Middle Grade Monday is hosted every Monday at author Shannon Messenger’s blog.
War has come to Carthya. It knocks at every door and window in the land. And when Jaron learns that King Vargan of Avenia has kidnapped Imogen in a plot to bring Carthya to its knees, Jaron knows it is up to him to embark on a daring rescue mission. But everything that can go wrong does.
His friends are flung far and wide across Carthya and its neighbouring lands. In a last-ditch effort to stave off what looks to be a devastating loss for the kingdom, Jaron undertakes what may be his last journey to save everything and everyone he loves. But even with his lightning-quick wit, Jaron cannot forestall the terrible danger that descends on him and his country. Along the way, will he lose what matters most? And in the end, who will sit on Carthya’s throne?
