The series comtinues to add to the complexity of the story and charactors, without becoming slow or dull. If anything, each book is better then the last.

The Keeping Place is the fourth book in The Obernewtyn Chronicles series by Isobelle Carmody, originally published in 1999. This one was a bit of a disappointment to me. All the books in the series so far have had ups and downs in the pacing, but this one was slow most of the time. The Dreamtrails parts of the story were not very exciting, even felt a little silly to me. Dragon, the wild little girl, was kept out of all the real action in the book, which I think was a mistake as she's a great character and I missed her. I've noticed that the books were published four-five years apart, so I expect more from the stories. I still like the series, and I'm hoping for better in the next installment.

I really enjoy the Obernewtyn series- the layers of the story and the complexity of the abilities of the Misfits. However- as much as I like this book and its series, the mistakes riddled throughout the book made this book aggravating to read. There are blatant spelling mistakes, missing spaces, and missing punctuation at least on every other page. Very disappointing that a published piece could be so poorly edited.
