Overview

And lo, a hero will come, as the Prophecy has foretold.

And lo, he will be strong, and beautiful. Or she. He or she will be strong and beautiful, keeping in mind that words like these are hard to pin down. Like maybe the hero is beautiful on the inside or something? The Prophecy doesn't say exactly.

And yea, in the twilight of whatever year this is, the chosen one will arise and slay the Great Dragon, and release the Sugar Zombies from their enchantment, and thwart the Lady of the Lake in her plan to tear a door in the universe. The Prophecy says all this and more.

I don't have it with me; I can show it to you later if you want.

But lo! Lo, it is written that there shall be a handsome knight! And a time-traveling Merlin! And a stouthearted leprechaun! And a girl possessed of a frightening genius. And a boy who once won a second-place ribbon for apple carving at the Delaware County Fair, children 5–8 division. Though he was technically nine.

Read on, seeker of truth! Read on!

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“Shout-outs to both traditional literature and the current zeitgeist abound. . . . Enhanced with Rex’s occasional drawings, this combination of high fantasy and pop culture closes with another funny and fantastic adventure. Fans will be disappointed to see it all end.”
School Library Journal

Gr 5–8—With the real world facing an imminent invasion from Pretannica, the land of fairies, pixies, and other magical creatures, Scott Doe, along with his sister, father, and their friends, must find a way to defeat the plans of the evil fairy Nimue. A large pink dragon, pixie jinxes, minature queens, and plenty of snarky comments take readers on an entertaining ride. Slapstick moments and humorous exchanges among characters help balance more intense scenes. Fans of the previous books will appreciate this fun and wacky conclusion to the trilogy.—Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT

Sorceress Nimue's mad scheme to transport the Seelie Court to New Jersey with help from swarms of breakfast-cereal sugar zombies comes to fruition in this capper to the Cold Cereal Saga. Readers are best advised not to start with this episode. Picking up the multistranded plot roughly where it left off in Unlucky Charms (2013), Rex sends one band of doughty heroes off to face the pink but deadly dragon Saxbriton and another to bring the rescued, if now-miniature, queen of England back to this world despite such challenges as a monstrous "ronopolisk" whose "mere glance can turn a man to stoat!" Meanwhile, a third group falls (back) into the clutches of the sinister sorceress, and a fourth that includes pixie princes Fee, Fi, Fo and Denzil take on a troll guarding a gateway to magical Pretannica. None of these efforts ultimately prevent Nimue from opening a massive rift that threatens to destroy more than just the Garden State, but a climactic scramble at the Goodco cereal factory leads to a dramatic if messy save in which Merlin, Excalibur and its long-lost scabbard figure prominently. King Arthur, were he dead, might spin in his grave, but Rex brings his cereal serial to a close with snap, crackle and pop aplenty. (plethora of illustrations not seen) (Fantasy. 11-13)
