Why did I pick this up? Because I have read all six of the other books in this series and this is the finale.

What is the story?  J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Cain and Abel, Modred, Tummler, Samaranth find what is necessary to defeat evil and restore the Archipelago.  You know unless you have read the series there is nothing that I could say that would make any sense.  The author effectively ties together all kinds of literary characters and authors.

Did I like it?  Yes, it was an exciting and satisfying end to the series.  It tied together all the loose ends from the series and was a great payoff to the series.

Grade-A+

What is with the title of the review?  It is with a heavy heart that I read the last book in the series, I have been heavily invested in this series and thoroughly enjoyed it  and it is with much anticipation that I look forward to what comes next from the author.
