I LOVEEEEE this series!!!! It’s clean, kid-friendly and a magical, awesome adventure! (Except the “magic” part of it is more like scientific magic… Not really magic-magic)

This is the 6th book in the series and it is as amazing as the 5 before it! The only “down-side” is there is some violence… Some people gets a little… cut up… Shattered mirror, sword slice cut up… It is kind-of dark, and described; but it’s still VERY clean! (There is some blood, but it’s just character build up! If someone doesn’t have a challenging life change… The book will be pretty boring…)

Over all, LOVE!!!! I highly suggest this series to both girls and boys! (Though there is some mention of crushes and it is from a girls perspective… sorry guys!) And I hope you all have a great day! -The Young Llama Reader.

  • Some violence and blood… Yuck!

Sophie Foster is struggling. Grieving. Scrambling. But she knows one thing: she will not be defeated.

The Neverseen have had their victories—but the battle is far from over. It’s time to change tactics. Make sacrifices. Reexamine everything. Maybe even time for Sophie to trust her enemies.

All paths lead to Nightfall—an ominous door to an even more ominous place—and Sophie and her friends strike a dangerous bargain to get there. But nothing can prepare them for what they discover. The problems they’re facing stretch deep into their history. And with time running out, and mistakes catching up with them, Sophie and her allies must join forces in ways they never have before.
