Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Williamson
This final book in the "Phoenix Rising Trilogy" finds Elissa living in her father's castle when she discovers that he has plans for her to marry. She decides that she must leave and concocts a plan that will take her away from her father's control. Plans do not always work out as they should and Elissa finds herself on an adventure that will take her to the end of the world as she knows it. Characters from the two earlier books in the trilogy join Elissa as she fights her nemesis and his underlings. Captured by pirates and taken to Khan's fortress, Elissa and friends, with their special powers, battle to save themselves and the world. While a reader will be able to make sense of the story without reading the previous two books, it would be helpful to have read them to keep track of the various characters, powers endowed to some of the characters, and for the history of how Elissa finds herself in the current situation. Fantasy readers will appreciate the story and its unusual characters. Reviewer: Naomi Williamson
School Library Journal
Gr 6–9—Elissa's story, which began in Elissa's Quest (Delacorte, 2007), ends neatly in this final volume in the trilogy. After being raised as a peasant and having adventures around the world, Elissa finds her role as princess uncomfortable and she is horrified when she discovers that her father is arranging a marriage for her. Her situation becomes too much to bear when her motley group of friends is sent away, so the 15-year-old disguises herself and runs away. She manages to reunite her friends only to be captured by pirates and taken to their lair, known as World's End. All secrets hinted at in the previous books are revealed and each character has a role to play in assisting in the rebirth of the Phoenix. Each one also gets a happy ending and all of the villains their just deserts. Purchase where the earlier books are popular, but otherwise pass on this tepid fantasy.—Caroline Tesauro, Radford Public Library, VA
