Disjointed final book. Did not like the way it jumped around and had no connection to the previous book. Parts felt too contrived. Some good resolutions. After reading all the books Grike is my favorite character of the whole series.
At first I thought that it would be about a person named Fever Crumb but now that I read it what I expected is very different, it is a page turning book that will keep you guessing until the very last second, It has an unpredictable plot and a story line that is unseen. The characters are Fever Crumb, Kit Solvit, and more. Fever Crumb is an engineer Who is currently a child, is the main character. Kit Solvit has to kids who play an important part in the story, he is a nice person that plays one of the biggest roles in the story. I liked the book because it had an unpredictable plot, and that it has a detailed background. The book was one of the best books I have ever read because of the details it uses in the story. I think that it would be best for people ages 11 up. It is a good book that I think many people would love.
So I enjoyed the first two books in this series, but the time I reached this one I was tuckered out from having to keep up with the many switches between characters. As such, the first half of this book dragged on and could not go by fast enough. I literally had to shut it off several times, because my mind was drifting too much away from it and I was loosing key plot points. The second half of the book, the author got a new wind and returned to the true story telling of Fever, and so it was a race to the finish and a grand finish it was indeed, and satisfying. If I had to listen to this book again, I would skip part 1 and go directly to part 2, you aint missing much. Fever's character grows by leaps and bounds, literally as she is forced to through caution and logic to the wind, and learn what it means to sometimes just take a leap of faith. This experience with emotions, contrary to how she was brought up, ultimately changes her for the good in a unique way, but it means that she has to make some difficult decision in the end about how she wants to continue living her life. This is a young adult book and therefore not appropriate for children.
