Wow! What a great finish! I like that the conclusion felt real.
Abisina must face hear fears about her destiny, leadership, and evil. This is an epic finale to the story of Watersmeet! The mysteries are solved, evil vanquished,Abby assumes her role as leader. She has moments of doubt, fear and of great courage as any great hero does? It still irritates me that the author does not describe how to fight or forage, but I have accepted that this is the way the author writes. I also wish that there

Third in a series. Must read first two to understand what's going on. A lot of fighting for Seldara.

Summary (hard to give without spoilers, so very general):
Abisina has taken her place as The Keeper of Watersmeet, but things are not going well. She feels that an unknown evil has come into the world and she needs help in order to defeat it. She struggles to bring together all possible allies, but will it be enough to defeat what has come to be?

My thoughts:
As a third book, this is not a stand alone, but it does have enough information that you don't have to reread if it has been awhile since you

Abisina and Watersmeet are at the edge of desperation in the final installment of the Watersmeet Trilogy. Abisina and her allies have been exiled from Watersmeet and are trying to bring the south together and break down their prejudices, but it's time to try to help Watersmeet again, and track down the scattered friends. Abisina and the mysterious fairy Neriah start the perilous journey back north, and finally to battle.

Abisina was more real to me in this book than in the past two. She's had to

This was an excellent hopeful conclusion to this series. I enjoyed this series more than originally expected to when I stumbled upon the first book in my local library. It explores themes of prejudice and racism; acceptance and integration; the effects of pain and loss and the definition of family. The themes are complex and varied. It would be a good book for use in a high school classroom for promoting discussion and real world application despite the setting in a fantasy world. There is ...more

4.3 rating: How do yo defeat something thriving on chaos and hate? You band together, but trying to pull everyone together is an even bigger task than expected for young Abisina. Since Trolls, Dwarves, Centaurs, Fairies, Humans and Fauns don't always get along, how can she complete this task for all to survive? this was an amazing read as the third and final book in the trilogy. recommended for twelve and up i see no reason why any advance early reader won't enjoy this adventure as well. Highly ...more

Though I didn't read the first two books in this trilogy, i was able to follow the story with the help of the character's list in the front and by the way the author was able to leak out the previous events without a total retelling. If you liked "the Hobbit" you will love this book. Abisinia, a shape shifter, is trying to unite all the dwarves, fairies, centaurs and human in order to fight a bigger evil coming through the rift. It has the classic fight to the end with a twist.

This book was a lot darker than I expected, even after the fairly dark nature of the first two books in the series. It's well written and the pacing is good, but I found the constant struggle a little too constant. I wanted some relief here and there. It really needed some humor or lightness to balance the dark.

I felt this one read a little slower than the first two, which is often the case in trilogies. It was still a good story, just stretched a little thin in parts. All in all though, I would definitely recommend this series to any young adult/teen that enjoys fantasy storylines.
