Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
In this conclusion to the "Darkest Age" trilogy, Edmund and Elspeth begin their search for the evil Loki. There are many who accompany them, also wanting to end Loki's terror, but instead of discovering a trail of destruction, they encounter a young boy who proves surprisingly valuable to their quest. Should they trust him? Edmund is convinced his father will help them as well, but some of his friends are doubtful. Edmund is captured, but it turns out his captors serve a familiar king. When he finds his father, Edmund discovers his father has a very specific request for him. Can he fulfill his father's desires, serve his people, and help Elspeth in her journey? When Elspeth is injured, will she be able to continue? Should Edmund stay with her or go ahead and search for Loki? The writing and multiple story lines are very complex, making this book more appropriate for the older end of the age range, and perhaps even appealing to older readers.

    This book 'well, the whole series actually' is awesome! It really needs to be more popular, because it's a sad thing when great books don't get as much credit as they deserve! I love this series! Anyone who loves this series, email me so we can talk about it!
