Overview

In the final installment of Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles, Nick and Laurie had thought they solved their giant problems when they drove all the giants into the sea. But now, the Grace kids have come back to tell them they may have more trouble coming their way!

It turns out the giants control the population of Hydra, a dragon like creature that is creating sinkholes all over Florida. But with the mermaids refusing to return the giants to the shore, the nixie's still missing and the threat of a destroyed Florida drawing closer, the kids have to take matters in their own hands.

Will Nick and Laurie be able to stop the destruction they unwittingly caused? Can a new giant hunter help save the day? Can Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide help them out of this or are they on their own?

Find out in the final conclusion of the Spiderwick saga!

I'm on the third chapter of this amazing book, at least so far it is. You should read the first series it makes alot of sense i read the first series and now i just have to finish this book and then im done with both series. I'll review it again once im done reading it.

What a conclusion to Spiderwick! Dark, dangerous, fast-paced and daring. The Wyrm King itself was horrifying to me. It makes me wonder what "natural" disasters we see today might actually have been caused by something we haven't learned how to see. A must-read for Spiderwick fans.

This is the third and final novel in the "Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles" series. This book was a pretty good one. I still think that the original Spiderwick Chronicles were much better, but if you liked the second novel in Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles than this book won't disappoint.Nick and crew have realized that luring the giants out to sea was a bad idea. With sink holes popping up all around town and slimy black things writhing in those holes, they have realized they need the giants to take care of an even bigger problem. This time the crew from the original Spiderwick Chronicles is along for the ride (Simon, Jared, and Mallory).Having the original Spiderwick characters in the story added a lot to this book. The main characters in this book are just a bit dull and non-engaging; adding in the Spidewick Chronicles siblings spiced things up a bit. The plot moves along really well and the story is an interesting one. I still did not find this book as exciting or engaging as the Spiderwick Chronicles; but it was on par with the second book in this series.The series is wrapped up nicely. The closing poem does hint that there are possibly more Spiderwick Chronicles adventures in our future. Whether that was a hint of another series to come, or a little ditty telling us to go out and have adventures I am not sure.The book can be enjoyed by all ages. Older teens and adults may find it a bit dull compared to the original adventures.

Although it's been three years since I read the previous book, I still found that a lot of what made the Spiderwick Chronicles such a fun read (the mystical, faerie adventures mixed in with young family dynamics and siblings learning to depend on each other) was still there.Beyond The Spiderwick was billed as the last tales of the Chronicles, with the toss back as a small challenge to young readers to begin exploring and writing/ creating their own adventures. In that manner, the series does wrap up properly with the final battle of The Wyrm King re-establishing a harmony of sorts between humans and faerie folk.Fans of the previous books will definitely enjoy this final chapter :)
