Expectations prior to reading this:

– Same powder magic with the Carnath incantation
– The Squirrel cat wanting to eat someone’s eye
– Kellen making contact with his sister through wind magic
– A new girl with some romantic aspect
– Danger and cliffhangers that are not genuine!

Reality after finishing the book:

– Same powder magic with the Carnath incantation
– The Squirrel cat wanting to eat someone’s eye
– Kellen making contact with his sister through wind magic
– A new girl with some romantic aspect
– Danger and cliffhangers that are not genuine!

My least favorite entry in the series so far! If I knew it would become this predictable and boring then I would have not read the whole series! I am going to finish it though because I already finished 5 out of 6 books!

โ€œIs that what all human civilisation leads to?’ I asked. ‘Are we destined for nothing more than endless wars and bloodshed?โ€

I am going to be very honest here and say that my experience with the series was very underwhelming! I wish I used the time to read the author’s Greatcoats series because it is directed toward adult readers which is me, this is directed toward younger readers and it shows. I am not a big fan of the ending too but compared to the mess that was book 5, this is still definitely better!

I mean after writing 5 reviews for the previous books there is not much new things to say. The books get predictable easily and I think the author tried to break this criticism by bringing something additional out of nowhere which made it an unrealistic addition to the series. I was waiting to see how will things resolve and climax in the 6th book but the author just took them in a whole different direction and had a kind of an open ending and said he’s leaving it to the reader’s imagination and I am like “really?”.

Summary: this is a short review because I don’t have much to say, the series started okay, improved and then went downhill from there, the last 2 books disappointed me. I am starting the Greatcoats next which I have much more expectations for. I do not recommend this series for adults (even if you enjoyed greatcoats) but maybe younger readers will enjoy it!
