FINALLY! I finally get to read and finish the last book in the series. It has been so long that I hardly remember anything from the previous books. Well, here we are again, and first of all, I would like you to know that
THIS BOOK IS TOTALLY AWESOME-ISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ah, well it really was awesome, but much darker than the others. Almost half the characters die. But fortunately, in a much less gory way than Billy the Kid (he is not a kid (don’t ask)) gets injured. I’m sorry; I’m just so giddy that I finally read this book that I’ve been trying to get a hold of for almost a year now. I don’t want to spoil it for you if you’re going to read it, but I will tell you that Isis and Osrisis are not Sophie and Josh’s parents and that they are completely evil. Not the kind of evil that makes you livid with anger in hopes that they die a very unpleasant death, but the kind that disturbs you in a way that makes your eyes bug and want to edge the book away from you. But I am not telling you what they are.
I think that the author could have added less grim details in parts of the book, but I also think the epilogue makes up for it. The book is five hundred and nine pages long, but it is easier to read than it sounds. At least for me; I am a mutant book-reading freak. I would recommend this book to anyone thirteen and over. I AM NOT KIDDING. Seriously, if you’re reading this and you’re ten years old and are even slightly disturbed by the idea of a six hundred year-old warrior getting eaten alive by evil, crazed, cannibalistic mermaids, then do NOT read this book. Nevertheless, this is a totally awesome book and if do not fit the description previously listed, go right ahead. I now leave you in a true sentence I just made up: “If books are frowned upon in my house, then I have four eyes, eight legs, and a tail.”
