I'm posting this unchanged for all three books of the series, because I believe potential readers should be aware that the series is incomplete:

"Ali's story will continue in the next book in the series, Nemi" (last line of The Yanti.)

According to a Pike fan site (
"This is Pike[....] Nemi will be published when the Alosha movie is released. I don't control the publication of the book, Tor does. And unless the movie comes out, they won't be inspired enough t

Actual Rating: 2.5 stars

I kinda like this book. It doesn’t have weird new Age-y nonsense or piles of nonsensical storylines and plot twists, which is a plus. The main characters aren’t loathsome. Unlike his most recent book Witch World.

But the book’s nothing special. It’s a hodgepodge of a couple of overdone genres, and it’s not particularly original in its rendering. There’s the high fantasy of a teenage fairy queen fighting a war against her evil sister in a game of thrones set in another worl

My first reaction was that the language was too simple but as the story evolved that reaction dissolved and I became involved with the characters. The characters exist in both the green (fairy) world and earth. Ali, the heroine, is the other half of the fairy queen, Geea. There is evil, of course, in the form of an entity which plans to destroy much of the earth's population under the guise of saving it. That entity entices Ali's sister, Doren, to become its thrall on earth to mastermind its des ...more

i've loved christopher pike since my jr. high days, and i recently got into reading his "adult" novels. this one is part of the alosha series, a literal fairy tale with a sci fi feel. i was a little disappointed with this book though, as i thought this was going to be the last in a trilogy. pike ends it abruptly after the climax of the book and you are left hanging until the next book. makes you wonder how many of these books he is going to write... also, there was no real development of story, ...more

The third book in the Alosha series deals with what I had thought would be the final battle against the Shaktra. Come to find out, there's a fourth book that's not yet in print (even though this one was published in '06). That was disappointing, as the tale is not yet wrapped up.
Besides that, however, this volume of the series was excellent. More information about the Shaktra (and the Shaktra's superior) is revealed, and the story is advanced. Also, this is a happier book than either of the firs

This managed a four from me only because there was so much going on it kept me on my toes. Unfortunately I thought this was the final book where all would be explained and the mystery would end. Shock on me, there is another book. Psht!!

Pike likes many things in one story. Science vs. Magic, Aliens and Future etc. It is nice but can also seem very disorganized.

I did like the past romantic aspect though since it was lacking in the presence and I am the biggest fan of Reincarnation.

A blending of various genres (fairy life, extradimensional invasion, chosen ones...), this is a serviceable young adult book. But for reasons I have a hard time pinning down, it never grabbed me, and I almost had to force myself to finish it.

As a digression: I read this around the same time as I was playing the video game _Child of Light_ which has minor plot similarities, so I found it amusing to use one as the basis to enrich the other.

This book was barely tolerable. As a sequel to the Shaktra, it failed miserably. One only hopes the length of time it's taking McFadden to write "Nemi" means he's correcting all of the obnoxious plot holes and incessant need to quote from every other book of his in order to get his point across. Terrible. I remember when he actually wrote interesting, suspenseful novels.

This has been a good little series, well written with enough adventure and mystical beings mixed in. Suspenseful and fun. A nice twist with how the elemental world mixes in with the human world. Looking forward to "Nemi" hoping that book will answer some unanswered questions.

well, at this moment i almost done with it and i cannot say it is completely compelling. that is what happens when you read series books though. this one is the book before the ending. it is wrapping up a bunch of character stories.

i will let u know if the ending is more compelling!

It completely lost my interest, and I couldn't finish it. The start of the series was good, but the memory loss and time traveling and dimensional thing wasn't put together well enough.

The third book truely pulls this series together. Putting almost all the pieces in place for the reader. Now I just need to read the fourth book in this "trilogy".

I loved loved loved this series, I just wish it had an ending =( . It doesn't sound like there is going to be a forth book.

My sister bought this one for me. I enjoyed the first two so I assume that I'll like this one. If not I'll be severly upset.
