This is a well-written and exciting adventure. A rollicking story with plenty of aliens, danger and conflict for fans of the series.
Canadian Materials
In this complicated, cunning finale ...Emma continues her Watcher-building lessons, on her way to becoming the most powerful Druid of all. Video game players will revel in this book's fast paced action, leaps into the unknown, character morphing and setting meltdowns. Heroes with "magickal" powers, characters described in infinite detail, and the excitement of competitive gaming will attract both boys and girls who long to be the honourable hero who succeeds in the face of almost insurmountable odds through gritty determination and dogged persistence, not to mention a little luck. Fairy tale elements ... are integral to this book's structure. A love story is interwoven through the book, to. ... The richly detailed descriptions of fantastic characters are breath taking and powerful. Its language is both formalized (the regents offer ritualistic advice, castles and forts are "fortalices," gnomes are "gnomuses") and direct, with urgent dialogue that hurries the heroes through their tasks one step ahead of Eefa, the arch demon.Strong themes of the necessity of discovering one's own identity and persisting in the face of danger and defeat dominate this novel. The powerful pull of family love, though, is ultimately the basis of Emma's success, as she completes her tasks to save her family and to discover who she really is. ... The Finder ... provide(s) a satisfying and compelling story.
