Actually rating 3.5 stars. This book was very very slow in the beginning. But it really came through in the end. But I still can’t get over the fact that it took me a little under a month to finish this book. Therefore the highest rating I could give it would be a 3.5.

Writing Plot- A Characters- A+/- Theme- A Setting- A Ending- A-
Described: Third and finale of the Legend of Zodiac Legacy for the Fate
Grade: A-

This was the Final Adventure Been Told by Stan Lee a year before passed away

After I read 2 pervious, I finally finished it and here’s my opinion-
The Third is really good. This Focus about The Zodiacs And The Vanguard Are Stand Together as team to fight against the Maniac of the Maxwell’s Dragon to take over the world (😒 Yeah, Yeah. This is very predictable).
Anyway, The narration of this Pages is Great, But some were a predictable and something Missing, But it’s really good on strong narration for the Middle-Class Book. The Illustration of Andie Tong is And Always really great on a Pages on his Work (give him a 5 Stars and I love his Arts).
The Plot Are Good But Really Similar To the Conclusion And Some Moment Are unforgettable as great and some moment are dull. Characters are good but underdeveloped that should’ve give them a develop as the meaning as real. Some are Cliches of Superhero like always I you seem the superhero movies and shows the most as very boring and same. However, this Marvel Legend’s Message for the struggles of humanity and the Fate of the Power And The Book was really enjoyable with more mature thanks to him as co-Created.

This was the Interesting and Wonderful Adventure of Superhero and Martial Arts by Lee, Stuart Moore, and Andie Tong. And sadly, this is the last wok by 3 creators. I hope they made this animated adaptation but better than source material.

Here’s the Summary Plot (Spoiler Alert And Not Much)-
Note: I should’ve summary on a 1st and 2nd.
Part 1: The Mountain of Fire
Steven, Malik, Nicky, and Josie inside the Volcano to find the Maxwell’s Secret bass to find Jianyu and Want Return their Zodiac Powers Back after the previous event.

1st- Dragon sought to destroy the human race
2nd- Maxwell’s Dragon And 3rd- Jasmine’s Dragon.

Vincent (Monkey) And Thiago (Rat), at Lystria, start talking to do what to do after Maxwell’s Gone.

The Ending is Short And really disappointing to close the Trilogy Complete, But a Little Satisfying.

May the Rest your Soul In Peace, Stan Lee. We will always remember you and your Legacy!

bruh i did not like how this ended lol ☹️ like for this the be the third book not the best. Anyways the superhero concept was still good but they basically “killed off” one of the main characters that had one of the best character developments across the trilogy so yea little pissed. Also fuck the main characters parents like they were lousy/ low key neglecting their child and now they show up and everything is supposed to be fine?? Like they didn’t even resolve the issues that was there and kinda just glossed over it. Glad I’m done reading this, again the trilogy was pretty good but weak ending 2 stars

It took me a while, but I finally finished it! This was a really good book. I wish the beginning plot was a little more stretched out, but other than that this book was really good. I liked the ending of the series. It did seem to abruptly come to an end though. I liked the Epilogues. It is fun to imagine what happens after the book.

My name is Roxanne, and membership on the Zodiac team has changed drastically. Steven was able to restore our powers, but we've been joined by our former enemies to fight Maxwell, although the Dragon has totally taken him over. These people were trying to kill us only a few, short months ago, and now we're supposed to trust them? Steven's parents showed us a video of the Dragon's devastation in Alaska, but we aren't sure where to find the creature now. Steven doesn't know what we should do; he's had some disturbing visions from ancient Zodiacs, and he had a disturbing visit inside Carlos's comatose mind. The Dragon isn't human and wants to eliminate all of us from the earth. The Dragon is the most powerful Zodiac of all, and we've discovered it plans to coordinate explosions all around the planet. Steven's visions have told him he'll need to make a huge decision and he'll fail, but failure is not an option.

You need to read the first two books in the series. This book didn't have the direct focus found in the first two books. I knew the team would eventually need to face Maxwell/Dragon, but it was put on the back burner for awhile. The plot began with an exciting escape and reclamation of the Zodiac powers, but then it slowed down as Steven tried to figure things out and tried to form the new team. The action amped up again once the Zodiacs went out to stop the Dragon. Personally, there were so many characters that I felt like their relationships got watered down. There was Steven and Kim, Steven and his parents, the old Zodiacs and the new Zodiacs, Jasmine and Carlos and Maxwell, and additional relationships. There were too many to develop them all fully. Overall, I've enjoyed the series and recommend you give it a shot. It seemed like this book wrapped everything up, but the last chapter hinted that there might be more to come. I can't find a Zodiac Legacy #4 in Goodreads, although I did see a few books related to the series including a graphic novel called The Age of Bronze.

RATING: 3 stars

This book was underwhelming, in my opinion. The first book was just... plain good, I guess, and the characters felt more realistic. I don’t know how it’s possible for a plot to go downhill as the series progresses and for the characters to get worse? But this book sort of managed that, unfortunately.

Which is sad, because I loved the pictures- which were also better in the first book- and the story. Like the idea of Zodiac powers was so cool, but I feel like this book was a letdown. I didn’t like the ending, and Kim, one of my favorite characters, along with Carlos and Steven, sort of became a character that was there just for a romance. And the romance was cringey at best.

I think I’ll always like the first book, but I’m sad to be disappointed with the sequels.

Un digno final para la saga. "El legado del Zodiaco" no es una historia rompedora y tiene sus defectos, pero también un encanto especial, acción a raudales, adolescentes con poderes e inseguridades, algún momento de humor y un ritmo que nunca decae.

Si tengo que elegir una de las partes, me quedo con la segunda, pero esta "Balanza de Poder" también es muy divertida. Sí, hay alguna escena que me chirría un poco, como ese dragón superpoderoso que no acaba de atacar o esa charla emotiva para desarmar a uno de los malos. Sin embargo, la sensación general es agradable.

Recomiendo esta trilogía a los seguidores de Stan Lee y los superhéroes, así como a los lectores que quieran una lectura llevadera. La veo especialmente interesante para adolescentes, aunque se disfruta con cualquier edad.

This series reads like a superhero/martial arts movie: a lot of action descriptions. The characters also engage in some deep soul searching while they fight the bad guys. I think the plot was weak in the way the story ended; events did not seem to unfold naturally, rather the story was forced to a conclusion in a way that was unsatisfactory. However, Stan Lee's empathy for the struggles of humanity was very much present, and made this read more enjoyable.

It wouldn't be bad if the authors made the characters older. I mean seriously Kim and Steven are just kids. Abandoned kids at that. In Steven's case abandoned several times over.

In the epic finale of the Zodiac Legacy series, The Balance of Power entertains from the first page to the last. Stan Lee, Stuart Moore, and Andie Tong finish their wonderful collaboration series with a bang. Or should be a snarl? If you've read the previous volumes, you have no choice but to finish the thrilling trilogy of Steven Lee and the Zodiacs, where it may not be just Maxwell that the team needs to be worried about.
After their blistering battle with Maxwell, having the Zodiac powers ripped from them, Steven and each team member—including Maxwell's former operatives—must wrestle with thoughts of leaving, their private lives coming to threaten their status on the team, and moving past old rivalries. With Jasmine constantly distracted with Carlos as his mind is trapped in stasis, young Steven has to bring together his friends and his foes in order to save one of their own and get their powers back.
Once the Zodiac is restored, the team has more than the Maxwell problem on their hands as the Dragon—the most powerful of all of the Zodiac—has almost fully taken over Maxwell's mind and body, using it for its own world-ending agenda. Can the team work together long enough to bring down the Dragon and save the world? Or will a deep sacrifice save them all and finally harness the Dragon's overwhelming energy?
A sizzling final installment, this action-filled young adult fantasy is the satisfying end to Steven Lee and the Zodiac team, though is left open-ended enough for more to come, and who wouldn't want more? The Balance of Power affirms why Stan Lee is still the creative Godfather he is, and Stuart Moore and Andie Tong harness his powers for obvious good through the catty dialogue and mesmerizing illustrations to complete the page-turning trilogy.

***Spoilers Ahead***
This is the third book in the Zodiac Legacy Series. This book series is similar to books by Rick Riordan like the Percy Jackson series. However, in this book series the characters have the powers of the Chinese Zodiac signs. In this book Steven is given a choice all of the tigers before him made as well. The other Tigers told him that eventually he would have to choose between his Zodiac friends and his family. Although Steven has a difficult relationship with his parents he refused to choose between his friends and parents. This book shows that sometimes the most obvious options aren't always the right ones. Instead of choosing between his parents and team members he talked to Mince and got her to stop the two tectonic plates from colliding. Maxwell, Jasmine, and Celine are some of the most important characters in this book. Maxwell being the leader of Vanguard creates an opposing side for the Zodiacs to face. However, at this point the Dragon Zodiac is just using Maxwell's body as a host. Jasmine is the leader of the Zodiacs and once held the Dragons power which creates more tension between her and Maxwell. We also learn that Jasmine told Maxwell information about her parents that revealed them as undercover spy's. Jasmine still feels guilty about it but she learned to forgive herself. In Carlos's mind she has to help him forgive himself to get him back to normal. Celine who worked for Vanguard in the other books has now reappeared after her sacrifice in Australia. She joins the Zodiac team and helps them find Lystria to stop the Dragons plans. This brings Celine's redemption arc full circle. Taking everything into account I gave Zodiac Legacy: The Balance of Power three stars.

The last book of Zodiac legacy is so good. Even after Stephen has lost his power he is still trying to save everything. But even after they soon regain there power there is an uncertainty. Carlos is brainwashed, Jasmine is heartbroken, everybody has lost hope, and none of the ex - Vanguard soldiers feel comfortable taking orders from a kid. Maxwell has the full -owner of the dragon and nobody knows how to stop him. Steven’s parents have come to help but they are just making Steven frustrated. For is you have read the past books you will notice that Steven and his parents don’t exactly have a good relationship.
I love the graphics again, and I like how everything came together. The book didn’t wrap up everything though. It left us with a cliffhanger. Which I am totally fine with if there was going to be another book but there isn’t. But everything else I think was amazing. It was captivating as always. And I have to say what happened to Jasmine was turn of events. Another thing I was sad about was that Jasmine didn’t get saved. Carlos was out of mind control and then Jasmine just went, I feel that as a last book it wasn’t exactly a good idea.
I would give this book a four. I was a little disappointed because the other books I gave 5 too, but it was still amazing.

The Balance of Power is the third and final book in the Zodiac Legacy. Steven is now in command of the Zodiac group even though his powers have been stripped. Converts who now see that Maxwell is losing his grip on the Dragon power and his sanity have joined their group but don't necessarily like the idea of answering to a 16 year old boy with no military training. At the beginning of this book, Steven is leading them all on a mission to try and rescue Kim and also restore their powers. Steven must find a way to bring all of them together in order to defeat the Dragon, but the former holders of the Tiger power have come to Steven with a vision prophisizing a doom-filled choice that they have all had to make that Steven has yet to face and warn him not to reseek his power. Steven believes that the Tiger power is the only hope of defeating the Dragon and saving the world.

I enjoyed this final volume in the Zodiac Legacy. The story was action packed with lots of dramatic moments involving each member of the Zodiac team and even some still loyal to Maxwell - a well written, quick and engrossing read to top off this interesting series.

Very epic, no doubt about it. Lee needed a strong and epic ending to such a great series. There's a few things I didn't like, though. For example, Mince. She was cool and all, but I think it would have been better if she just would have been left out. I think they just needed someone to contend with Carlos, since he was a genius and all. I mean this is awesome, Steven saves the day, Jasmine was epic, Liam was ridiculously funny, Dragon is destroyed, etc. The whole thing with Jasmine at the end and the Jianyu substitute and all was, probably, a good idea. Poor Carlos, though. He just got to hang out with Jasmine at last and then she has to sacrifice herself to contain the Dragon. Crazy. Just crazy. I am proud to be a Ram after reading this series because I kinda FEEL invulnerable now to what people say and stuff and Liam is just plain awesome because he's Liam. I mean, seriously. Crazy funny round Irish guy gonna kick your butt. He's great.

16-year-old Steven Lee and the rest of the Zodiacs are back for another adventure, and this time the existence of everyone on Earth is at risk. Over the course of the last two books, all of the Zodiacs have come together with the idea that the evil dragon is really out of control, and it will take the powers of the other 11 powers to bring down the Dragon.

Like something out of an X-Men plot (with superheroes and villains coming together to fight a bigger evil), this book builds as different teams of Zodiacs work together on a plan to prevent the Dragon from gaining the ultimate power. The result is a pretty interesting tale and a nice conclusion to the series.

Well here we are. at the end of our journey with Team Zodiac... I won't lie when I say that I didn't expect it to end the way it did. the amount of dread I had built up anticipating the darkest of finales had me pleasantly surprised to see the ending that came out of this trilogy. The plot, the action, the stakes, and the characters all added to how amazing this finale was. My enjoyment with this book exceeded my overall enjoyment with the other two installments in the series I can confidently say that this conclusion to the Zodiac Legacy was solid and satisfying (without touching on spoilers, I don't think my heart would be able to handle any other kind of ending).

3.5 again.

It was a satisfying ending, but it was soooo pedestrian.

I have come to like the story despite the comic-like writing, I have been enjoying the journey of the whole team, I honestly kind of expected a different outcome that does not skew in their favor, a plot twist, if you will. Instead I got a generic ending.

I honestly don't care if Jasmine is gone. Her character lacks depth and without Carlos, she's close to being useless. She could've died and I would not have cared. She's a badass in the first book and in the second book, she's a lovesick teenager with a Dragon inside.

Anyway, I had fun reading the series. I think 3.5 stars is a generous rating.

This is the third book to The Zodiac Legacy. It starts off with an action packed adventure to save their friend and get back their powers. In the last one, the enemy took all their powers and became the strongest of them all, the dragon. Except the dragon was too strong and took over his soul causing the dragon to be in control. Now the team fights the most dangerous creature on the planet. Steven, the tiger, leads his team into the finale phase of the battle, to truly defeat Maxwell. This is wonderful book filled with many battles and a lot of funny jokes to warm your heart.

The Zodiac Legacy: The Balance of power

A well written book from Stan lee, Straut Moore, and Andie Tong. I would recommend this because it is a story continued from a great storyline. Last book Steven got his Zodiac powers stolen from him. Now the story continues. After Steven’s powers had been taken from him for months. The man who has taken the powers from Steven is not even the biggest enemy yet. The Old friend Dragon has come back to take down Steven. Steven is not prepared yet because he does not have powers. But Steven comes back and fights.

Firstly, I really enjoyed this whole series! I hope there's another one cause I'm fascinated with these characters. Such a cool take on the zodiac animals and the people who represent them. I don't want to give any spoilers but I had to force myself to put the book down so I didn't read it all in one day! It is like an action movie and a psychological thriller all in one! Plus, it is co written by one of the greatest comic book men. This series could make a really cool movie!

This book was a disappointment. The dialogue was corny, Steven was as whiny as ever (maybe even more-so), and the ending was just kind of bland. I understand that Steven is young but, as I’ve said before, he is annoying. He’s not sure he can be the leader, but he won’t give it up to someone more experienced. He whines about his parents nonstop, and then when they’re there, he whines at them, and then when they leave, he whines some more 🙄 I don’t feel sorry for him because he drives me crazy. I didn’t even think the action in this lived up to the other two books and the plot was much weaker. I just thought this was a rather lackluster end to the series 🤷🏻‍♀️

Maxwell is consumed by the dragon power and Steven and the team are trying to rescue Kim. She left to check on her dad because of his heart attack. Kim was kidnapped by Vanguard group, that is headed by Maxwell. All the team members seem to have family problems. Even, the leader, Steven has family issues.
Great series. Hope Stan Lee continues making more of these adventures.

The book starts out with Steven Lee and his Zodiac team trying to find Kim, who's been captured by the Dragon's (Maxwell's) team. Steven Lee is set on a rollercoaster of emotions with Kim, his "girlfriend" and his parents. The team forms incredible bonds and is able to defeat the Dragon before he engulfs the world with everlasting flame.
