Hi guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're taking a look between the pages of the exciting conclusion to the Zaria Fierce trilogy that is sure to have kid lit readers of all ages staying up to the wee hours of the morning just to finish ONE MORE PAGE. We've looked at book one and book two, but if you need a refresher, feel free to pause your read through of this review, I wouldn't want to spoil any surprises and this one definitely makes more sense if you've read them in order. If however you are ready to proceed, then I am happy to oblige! Without further fanfare or gibber, here is today's book of choice..
About the book...
“Nothing can save you now, Princess.”
How can anyone be tricked twice? Isn’t there even a saying about that? Zaria Fierce is determined to get things right this time and with the Drakeland Sword in her possession she’s ready to take on trolls, dragons, and whatever else may come… but first she and her friends are going to have to figure out just how much trouble they’re in at home.
The gang is back at it again, or rather resuming activities from where we left off. Zaria is learning to trust herself while discovering her magical heritage, and her friends are growing up as well. With all that's transpired and all that's still to come, I was very curious to see if they would be able to put the dragon back in the bottle, so to speak...and if you read the previous book, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Crafty, evil, sneaky dragon...
Throughout this adventure, Zaria has to conquer not only her fears, but her doubts...something that can be harder and uglier to face. Lucky for her, she has good, nay GREAT friends, both of this world and the magical one, to help her through...the problem is trusting herself enough to trust them. The self trust issue also shows itself in her lack of magical abilities because heritage wise, she should be shooting sparks from her fingertips with ease, not bathing in self loathing as she struggles with the most mundane task. If you've got yourself in a tizzy about her well being, don't...this part will all work out...now whether she'll survive to marvel in the things she's accomplished is another thing altogether. *dun dun dunnnn...*
In short, it was an AWESOME ending to what's been a wonderful trilogy. Action, adventure, deception, magic, family and friends...all work together to cast a spell of enchantment you won't soon forget. The moment I opened the virtual cover, it was like greeting old friends, and following them on this adventure was nothing short of a pleasure, no matter how dangerous it got at times (and it DID get dangerous!) or hard some of the goodbyes may have been (*gasp...I've said too much!). The lessons taught along the way of trusting ones self, allowing friends into your life, and that being brave isn't about being the biggest, meanest, anything, but rather smart with a kind heart, will walk right off the page with even the most disillusioned of readers. Recommended for kid lit fans of all ages.
