Benko concludes her series with a bang. The book contains plenty of excitement. I also found the twists and turns to be interesting as Claire and Sophie try to defeat the former queen and save each other. I also enjoyed the twist of Sophie turning into a unicorn, it made for an intriguing story line. I also enjoyed Claire and Sophie and their friends.They made great characters. The series as a whole does a fine job creating a fantastic and interesting world for the girls to visit. With plenty of ethical dilemmas and challenges facing the characters the books move along at a brisk clip making for an entertaining, yet thoughtful read. The themes revolve around difficult choices, friendship, family, and unity in the face of great threats. All in all, a wonderfully enjoyable series about light vs. dark, friends vs. foes, and love vs. sacrifice.
FIRE IN THE STAR brings together a lot of characters from the earlier books, but it’s pretty easy to keep track of everyone as the story kind of refreshes you on who’s who as you read.
I also really loved that in the story, Claire and her allies all need each other, need to work together to save Arden. It meant learning to value one another, trust each other, put aside past grievances, and find a way to work together. Definitely a feel-good story in that sense.
This has been one of my favorite middle grade series, and I really can’t wait to see what Kamilla Benko writes next. She’s an author I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to any middle or late elementary school-aged readers.
If you like books by Jessica Day George, you really need to check out The Unicorn Quest series.
Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I did not remember a lot from the previous two books, but most of it gradually came back to me as I progressed through the book. Magic, unicorns, wyverns - need I go on? This trilogy is replete with the elements that make an exciting magical adventure. Currently, I am in a state of denial over the ending; in time, I know I will get over it. I recommend for middle school readers as it is a great fantasy read that displays the power of friendship and sibling love.
