If you liked the first and second Storyteller books, then you will love this last one. Lisa Creswell did an excellent job bringing the story full circle. She even left it open for another series in addition to this one.

And they all lived happily ever after... The story picks up right where it left off in book 2. Lily and her companions continue their quest for Galamar's gems, and the Formorians step up their efforts to find and destroy her. Peter's delima, Merab's back story, and the legendary feats of Galamar are also key to the resolution of the story. I don't want to spoil anything, so that's all I'll say about what happens in the book. I think this is an excellent wrap to the series. Things hinted at in the first two books are revealed and resolved in this one. The author did a good job bringing this story to a close in a satisfying way, though a couple things felt like they were resolved a little too perfectly. Some of the details seemed to come out of nowhere, making them less believable. I found myself getting a bit confused as to the order of Galamar's feats. The quests are revealed in bits and pieces when Lily reads about them as she tries to figure out what she and her companions should do in their real-time quest. Since the heroes are not visiting the portals in the order that Galamar did, it makes it hard to keep them straight. I think this started in book 2 and just continued into The Last Page. That being said, I enjoyed the legend and I think it would be fantastic if Galamar's story wound up in its own volume some day.  Overall, I really liked this book and felt satisfied at it's conclusion, though the ending seemed a little too perfect and the history gets a little confusing at times. I would recommend this book to those who love fantasy, fairy tales, youthful heroes, and quests.  As a series, I loved Storyteller. I highly recommend picking up all three books because you won't want to stop once you get started.  The three books read like a single volume, though each one has a climax and partial resolution that leads to the next.  The story, while scary in parts, is appropriate for middle-schoolers and would likely keep the interest of young readers. I was lucky to have won a copy of all three books in the series in a contest.

I previously reviewed The True World and The Quest of Galamar, the first two books in the Storyteller Series and was looking forward to reading the final installment, The Last Page. The book definitely doesn’t dissapoint. All loose ends are tied up nicely, and Lily finally comes into her own, embracing her powers, and becoming the person she was always meant to be. With Peter captured, Lily loses her best friend, and must rely on herself to save him, and to save the entire True World. She took charge, faced whatever dangers came her way head on, and became an admirable heroine. She’d always been admirable, but it was like she outgrew the role of a child here, and became a real young adult. As usual, the book was filled with magic and mayhem, from the amulets to the evil Lord Kane who wanted Lily out of the way. We get thrown into the adventure from the first page, and the pacing never slows down. When you think there’s a moment of calmth, it picks up again. The character who impressed me the most, however, was Heather. She really took a turn for the best here, and turned form an annoying, attention-craving bully into a person worth respecting. Heck, by the end, I even liked her. If you’re a fan of fantasy, epic adventures, magic fights and prophecies, give the Storyteller Series a chance. It’s a great read, especially for middle graders and young adults.
