By the end of this series, I really hated it. This follows and concludes the story of the three Drew children and Will Stanton and their fight for the Light against the Dark. And I finally figured out what bothered me so much about these books.
1. There is no love story. I suppose a book can be good without it but I certainly would have enjoyed one.
2. In conjunction with that there is no personal story at all. Will is strictly of "the Light." He never has a trial of any kind of faith. He never wavers. It all seems very much predetermined as to what he's going to do. While that may be noble-it's not very entertaining to read. If everything is a given-then there's not much suspense or much to hold my interest. I was really tired of the book by the time I was through.
