Overview

The young wizard Jinx concludes his suspenseful and dryly humorous adventures in the magical forest of the Urwald with this third installment in the series that ALA Booklist says “deserves a permanent place in the children’s fantasy pantheon, with Narnia and Earthsea” (Jinx's Magic, starred review). This action-packed conclusion is perfect for readers of fantasy adventure series such as Septimus Heap, the Sisters Grimm, and Fablehaven.

The forest is under attack and its magic is fading. Can Jinx summon enough of his magic—the bright fire within him—to rescue Simon, defeat the Bonemaster, unite the Urwald, and fight off the invaders? He is the Urwald's only hope. . . .

Book 3 concludes a great series. Book 1 reminded me a little of Howl's Moving Castle, but, really it's very much its own thing. I love how Jinx can see emotions & motivations, but still has to learn how to relate to people. He grows up a lot over the course of the trilogy. I very much enjoyed all three books.

This doesn't always happen, but in this series the book number fits the order I like the books. "Jinx", the first book, wonderfully set up a story of a misfit maneuvering through a magical place. It is by far the best in the series. The second book, "Jinx's Magic", throws Jinx into life lessons and coming of age challenges. It's good, but is hindered by complicated plot twists. Perhaps because of the overabundance of story lines in book two, book three falters. Blackwood resolves the main problems in this last book, but almost abandons half of the stories addressed in the previous book. So although Jinx visits Elves, saves a friend, and then masters his power, the reader is left feeling that not much has been resolved. In the last chapter, a rather big issue is addressed by pretty much saying, "Who knows what will happen". I think Blackwood focused too much on putting all her ideas into one series rather than on just telling a good story. Elementary students will still enjoy this book and cheer on its champion.
