Overview

In the final part of Steve Augarde’s captivating trilogy, past and present are connected, and the interwoven threads lead to an astonishing series of revelations.
 
Midge’s discovery of the hidden tribes is like a dream to her now, their existence all but forgotten. But then a voice calls out to her in the winter darkness. The Various have returned, and their desperation has made them all the more dangerous. They must travel to Elysse or perish. The only way that Midge can help the little people is by tracing the whereabouts of her great-great-aunt Celandine. But Celandine must be long dead, surely?
 
A story of danger and magic, friendship and betrayals, this is fantasy writing at its very best.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, April 1, 2009
"A perfectly paced, beautifully crafted and moving end to a memorable fantasy."

From the Hardcover edition.

School Library Journal

Gr 6-9

In this concluding volume, Midge is called upon once more by the Various, who are in difficult times and see the Orbis as the answer to their troubles. Midge's skills are needed to find her Great-Great-Aunt Celandine and learn about what happened to the Orbis so many years before. With tensions at the breaking point, finding the Orbis and reuniting it with the Touchstone is the only way the Various see for an end to their plight. Once again readers will be captivated by Augarde's wonderful descriptions of the English countryside and the emotions of the characters. Through Midge's fast-paced detective work, much of the backstory is filled in and it is easy for readers to pick up on what's happening, but familiarity with the previous two books is suggested, especially the first one, The Various (Random, 2004). All of the interconnected threads and subplots are neatly tied up in this title, and the questions raised in the previous books are answered in a satisfactory manner.-Dylan Thomarie, Johnstown High School, NY

    Reviewed by Joan Stradling for TeensReadToo.com

    In book three of THE TOUCHSTONE TRILOGY, hard times have come upon the Various. Their lives hang in the balance as they try to find a way to survive in the human world. They decide their time here is through and they must return to Elysse.

    The only way to go home is to unite the Touchstone and the Orbis. But the Orbis isn't among the Various. Years ago, it was given to Celandine for safe keeping.

    Now Midge and Celandine's stories come together as Midge looks to Celandine's past in order to find the Orbis and return it to the Various. However, there are those among the Various who would use the Orbis for their own evil purposes.

    Will Midge be able to find the Orbis and return it to the right hands before the harsh winter kills the Various?

    Like THE VARIOUS and CELANDINE, WINTER WOOD is told from varying points of view, giving the reader a glimpse into the lives of the characters, both human and Various.

    I enjoyed walking into the chill WINTER WOOD and being lost in the triumphant conclusion of Augarde's trilogy. The story blazed with action and adventure despite its winter setting.
