Didn't enjoy this series as much as I enjoyed Anderson's other work, but one thing I liked is that there are consequences in his writing. Things don't just return to the status quo, and relationships evolve and change and not always for the better. I respect that.

This was a great book to end the series on. So many ups & downs, twists & turns. M T Anderson, you are the best!

Just don't bother. It's hard to want to read a book where you don't even care about the characters enough to properly dislike them. Book 1 was an interesting play on the board game/scavenger hunt theme, and a good self-contained story. Book 2 was a jumble of them stumbling around with no plan, and ended w a cliffhanger, no resolution. Book 3 played like a whodunnit, forgetting the sense of urgency previously built up, leaving me screaming at the book to get back to priorities. It also ended on a ...more

I changed my status to read, but that's a lie. I did read half of it, but just couldn't finish it. The story was still interesting, but not interesting enough to make me put up with the three most annoying characters I've come across is a while. They just don't have any readeeming qualities by this book and I found I just don't care about them anymore. So, while I enjoy M.T. Anderson's other work, and the even the first and second book in this series, I just couldn't get through to the end.

The Game of Sunken Places is one of my favourite books, and I was really excited to find out there would be a sequel--and then a quartet! The second and third books left me largely disappointed. The tone drifted, the plot was all over the place, they lost their existential charm and became heroic quest novels instead. The Chamber in the Sky is the best of the three sequels for a variety of reasons, but particularly because it's over now.

yikes. I stuck with this series all the way through based off how good the first 2 were. the last two could be condensed and combined and then maybe they'd be half as good as what got me hooked. the first 3/4 of this was like pulling teeth. Maybe doing all four in quick sequence might make the difference but I don't have it in me.

I don't know why I did not like this book. it seemed well written and the characters were well developed. perhaps if I had read it in one or two sittings, I would have liked it, but since I put it down a lot, I was mostly confused and I kept reading to be done.

Loved it

Loved this book and the series. It was a nice little ending that left you changed. Would have liked it if the outcome was a bit more of a nice ending like the first book but still wonderful story.
