In the final book of the Seventh Tower series, Tal with Milla must climb the violet tower once again to not only retrieve a keystone but his long lost father who was presumed dead but was locked away inside a keystone somehow and his enemies would stop at nothing to retrieve the keystone first thus leading to an all out battle and to save his sick mother from dying.

The Book raps up all of the lose ends and end the series with a blow of excitement. The book takes you to places your mind usually woundn't. Some of those places are The Dark World,Aenir,The Hall of Nightmares, and The Seventh Tower. The book took me through the emotions of Tal,Milla,Crow,Ebbit and Tal's Family. When you really get into it feels as if its real and is happening to you at the same time as the characters are experiencing it themselves.

I loved the entire series, but have been waiting for what seems like forever for more of these books. I would love for them to continue, please Mr. Nix write more!!

What?! No Tal/Milla romance? This is an outrage! The book itself was great, except for the fact that Tal the Wimp didn't have the guts to admit his true feelings for Milla! We all know it's there Tal! Be a man! Oh well. It'll always happen in my mind. "I love you Tal!" "Yeah! Me too! I mean, I love you too!" (sigh)

Nervous it being the finale, wondering how everything comes together. Bet Tal is feeling deja vu what with climbing the tower again. This time he has Milla however. Except its a little different. It has to do with not only finding a certain keystone but finds out someone he was told was dead or presumed dead isn't. As to where they are, well let's just say its get a little awkward? Thus it leads to a big battle as Tal and his new friends fight to both his and Milla's world, along with his dying mother. Sine its been a long time since I read these, not sure if there was a hint or what have you, of a romance between Tal and Milla. I remembered their friendship and it being one of my favorite things about their characters. If there wasn't a romance, then wow, that's a first, as least from what I read over the years. As for the cover, both old and new, my first thought, what is that?! Really good series. Make me wonder why hasn't it been optioned as a movie or something already? As long as it done right that is.

The Violet Keystone, book six in the Seventh Tower series, was a great read. I would read it again if I had the time. This was a very easy read, but not too easy to where it was boring. The book is about a young boy named Tal and his friend Milla who have to fight through a castle that is filled with danger around every corner. Since this is the last book it ends with a huge boss fight. Tal and Milla fight a big dragon named Sharrakor. They fight the dragon in a dream world called Aenir. This book was very well written, and I would recommend this to all my friends. The Seventh Tower series doesn't disappoint at all. It has an ending that keeps you on your toes until the ending. This is an awesome book overall. I wish I had the time to read it again. I can't wait to read the next series.

I havent read this book yet but i have read the first 5 of the series, these are a really good set of books and are very interesting and keep me reading, normally if a book is boring i cant read it. but once i find a really good book (like this series) i cant put the book down. I read books 4 and 5 in 2 hours and i cant wait to read book 6!!!

The book was kind of boring at first. Of course, I am not a great fan of this genre of books. Overall, I didn't regret reading it. It was enjoyable til the end.

This is one of the best series of all time! These books make you feel like you are taking the journey with Tal and Milla, I don't know what my bookshelf would be like without them. If Garth Nix's other books are even half as good as these, I'd read them in a second!
