I still like the series
Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2017
Don't get me wrong, I still like the series, and will probably get the next book, but when you need a spread sheet to keep up with the characters it's time to trim the fat. Whole pages went by with me trying to remember who they're talking about, and what action in the past is being referred to. And just when I think I've got it straight ANOTHER character from four books back is mentioned. In the end I just went with it and said okay that bad guy did something like what's happening now and the other one did something else similar and they were defeated so lets get on with the story.
The next paragraph has spoilers, and I don't know how to hide it so if you don't want to be spoiled skip it.
My other problem with the book is that after dealing with being sent to other worlds, other dimensions, plagues, alien invasions and people trying to take over the world, in this book the Big Bad is the PTA? Nearly the whole book is about trying to raise money for a school that caters to the children of the super powerful and the super rich. At the very least they could have been spending all that time, effort and influence raising money for a poor school.
All in all, I found it to be a bit of a let down after the others in the series.
