Haddix does bring the various branches of the family together in a reasonably believable fashion. Fortunately, the previous books had laid the groundwork adequately so it didn't seem too rushed. The generational conflicts among the branches play out very well in my opinion. Especially well done is the growth exhibited by Jonah Wizard. There are also a few nice surprises as the book builds to its conclusion. All in all, quite satisfying, page turning, have to stay up another hour to finish it excitement.
But not every question gets a satisfying answer. The biggest to my mind is how did Amy and Dan's family ever get accepted as being Cahills in the first place? They weren't descended from any of the four known children of Gideon Cahill. So why is Grace (and later Amy and Dan) accepted as Cahills? How did Grace achieve her high status among the Cahill clan without belonging to any of the branches?
Perhaps the sequel series delve into these questions. This book and the entire series can be highly recommended to children and adults alike. Great fun.
