Although this can be considered as the third volume in a trilogy, the way the series ends, leads me to believe that the 'ElseWhere Chronicles' is more of a prequel or introduction to something greater that will appear later. This is not to disparage the ElseWhere Chronicles or vol 3: The Master of Shadows. However brief this series was, it was still filled with its share of danger, mystery, action, and even tragedy. In addition to the story, the art makes a visual feast for the reader with its lively drawn characters and fast paced panels. The level of detail and color put in per frame almost gives a sense that you're seeing scenes of an animated movie than a graphic novel.
It's to its merit that a slim series like the ElseWhere Chronicles can fill in more adventure and action than other graphic novels 3 times its length.

Highly recommended for children around the age of 8 and up, as scenes of danger and death might be too much for some.
