I was skeptical of this story line when I downloaded it, but it turned out to be a good story. Not terribly realistic, but still a good read. I think the best part was that the plot didn't go where I expected it, and instead took a turn in a different direction.
I enjoyed the first book, but this one was way too slow and the narration was a bit annoying.
The plot moves along and develops a bit more, but this is really just the same as the last book with a different setting. Not necessarily a bad thing, as I liked the other books a good bit.
This one is pretty consistent with its predecessors - if you enjoyed them you'll probably like this one. Not much else to say, really.

I'm not a huge fan of military sci-fi, but this one has some pretty nice twists on the standard pattern. For the most part the characters are likeable and the plot is interesting.
The best thing about this series is the long list of imaginative creatures and characters. Just when you expect him to run out of ideas, Brandon Mull comes up with another unique idea. Lots of fun, this book, and the ending doesn't disappoint.
I was a huge fan of the first two books, and was worried that the series might die at that point, or perhaps become only a trilogy. This one moves a bit slower than the other two, but develops the plot and characters quite a bit more, and opens the door for many more books to come. Very pleased. This is one of my favorite series.
This was a good follow up - the story developed some more depth, and got more interesting. Good listen. Fantastic narration. The nice thing about the narration is that it is done in such a way as to keep the focus on the story, and not the narrator's voice, but with a wide variety of voices that fit the characters.
I waited anxiously for this book. This has been one of my favorite series. The lighthearted and funny demeanor combined with great like-able characters and superb narration more than compensated for the simple plot lines. Overall (up til now) its been great fun listening to this series.
With this book, the great characters (most of them) are gone, and dozens of new characters with unpronounceable names are hurriedly introduced, and they immediately begin trying to lay the ground work for a complex back story by telling lengthy stories about more characters with unpronounceable names in places with unpronounceable names.....all of this being narrated in the same manner as the previous stories, which just doesn't work.
Bottom line: I turned it off after a couple of hours. I would prefer to remember Atticus and Oberon as they were before. Bummer.
This one is not as good as the first book in the series. A lot of time is spent on self doubt and preaching from annoying characters. Kind of like the really boring episodes of Star Trek.
