Oscar's Review: I really loved this book. In every chapter when you thought something was going well, the ship would sink and everything would be submerged and the story would be shaken. I really don't have that much to say about this book because I love it so much, but I do have one thing: most who read this book will love it as they've loved, in turn, the first, second, third, and fourth books in the series. There was also a HUGE, interesting, and unexpected twist that really shook up the story and increased the suspense and excitement levels by a tenfold. I think this book would really appeal to reluctant readers because it is an action-packed, fast-paced fantasy story that pulls you into the book from the start.

Connor has matured and he is beginning to understand how and where he fits in. These are Connor’s stories; but, ohhhhh, they are so much more than that. They are his path to self discovery... a subconscious map to places only he has imagined and like most authors, he has left his finger print on every single page when he writes. I love it!

There just seems to be too many characters. It got too confusing and a little bit boring when every character in a scene had to say something. It was all a bit of a jumble and having literally just finished, I couldn’t name all the characters.
There were also a number of terms/words which were used in the wrong context or just wrong. Authors should not be making these mistakes and if they are, they should have been picked up on in editing.
Previously in the series I have been able to forget that it is a book written by an actor (who wouldn’t have had a book deal had he not been on Glee) and get lost in the story.
This instalment truly felt like it was written by Connor. A child. It felt rushed and crowded.
My only incentive to read the next one is based on my enjoyment of the previous books.
