THE STAR QUEEN is the fourth (and final?) novel in THE SUNKEN KINGDOM series. Kim Wilkins wraps up the story nicely by the final page of the book.

THE STAR QUEEN starts out with Asa and Rollo being awakened during the night by loud explosions. It takes a bit of prodding, but the two children are able to get their Aunt Katla to reveal what is going on in the surrounding countryside. Evil emperor Flood is destroying the homes of their neighbors in his quest to locate Asa and Rollo.

Torn by guilt at the destruction on their account, the two children leave behind their baby sister, Una, and their aunt and head off on the Northseeker on a final quest to locate their missing (and hopefully still alive) parents.

As one of the children gets captured by the Sky Patrol, it's up to the other sibling to find the Castle Crag and rescue not only their sibling, but also search for their parents.

Once inside the Castle Crag, characters from the past three novels come to play a part in bringing a resolution to the childrens' quest.

I don't want to give anything else away, so I'll leave it at that. The story moves along quickly with much excitement and anticipation. For those readers that have been enjoying the first three books in the series, THE STAR QUEEN will not disappoint. The story is appropriate for all ages. The beautiful illustrations enhance the story as it comes to its conclusion.
