The final chapter of the Map to Everywhere series finishes with everything you would expect from the books: emotional rollercoasters, crying, laughter, anxiety, and satisfaction when everything at last goes RIGHT. After Shadows of the Lost Sun, you become a little convinced that there is no way Ryan and Davis can fix all of the problems they created without weak cliches or deus ex machinas, but they do! Everything that happens makes sense with each character, and everything that happens fits and ...more

WHOA! 4. 5 stars!!
Oh, and spoilers ahead!

This book was AMAZING. I think this and Shadows of the Lost Sun were my favorite of the series. And Serth as a good guy was....interesting. Actually, it was amazing, once I got used to it. I hadn't read Shadows of the Lost Sun in a while before reading Iron Tide Rising, and I was like, wait what? Serth is.....helping them.....and not crying all the time? Then I remembered that....ok actually I'm pretty sure I actually just went with it with a shrug.

But a

A very fun and exciting conclusion for this series. None of the books really live up to the whimsy of the first, but the authors still have such vivid imagination that it's hard not to love taking this last part of the journey with Marrill and Fin. I really love the Mirror Maze portion, and the way the plot weaves between time and possibility (making this a less confusing "time travel" option than other books and movies that try a similar kind of resolution). Fin is probably one of my favorite c ...more

A really great end to a really great series. Four books always feels a little awkward, but each one in this series worked well and it had a great overarching plot. I just loved it and loved how everything was wrapped up and happy at the end. (No, I don't care if it's unrealistic. I like happy endings. Fight me.)

Some great things were-
• The parallel between Marrill and Ardent. Very clever and with an excellent lesson.
• More Fin!
• How we got back certain characters that died.
• Serth. (Or is it Ser

Normally I gallop through books and gulp them up whole, but this one I was scared to finish and read ever so slowly. I didn't want to finish it; I didn't want the series to end. What to read now that it has ended?

The tension kept building throughout the entire book; would good/bad guys remain true? Would bad/good guys be saved? Very riveting. And the mistrust/distrust was very believable. Fortunately things were resolved to my heart's content--though I would be happiest of all if I coul

I like serth. He's the most human of them all. Naysayer is the realist. I was surprised by what her parents did. The dawn wizard is tricky but understandable. Good ending, but I wanna know what happened to Fig and Vell. ...more

still dont' like time-traveling in books...so wont rate this 5-stars!!!...but the weird & quirky adventure itself is worth 5-stars.

On-the-whole, the series itself is worth 5-stars cuz its just one epic wacky adventure, that surprised me for how much i liked it.

A satisfying ending to the series. I read this series of books to my son over the course of 2 years when he was 7-9 years old. Great for that age range or slightly older.

The Enterprising Kraken has lost a number of friends over their journey, but stopping now will mean leaving the Pirate Stream to fall apart, an no way are Marrill and Fin going to sit by and let evil get away with hurting anybody else they care about! In this adventurous conclusion to the "Map to Everywhere" series, Carry Ryan amps up the danger as the crew races to save the world - the many worlds - from destruction! ...more

An immensely satisfying conclusion to an imaginative series.

I'm sad that the Map to Everywhere series had to end, but all good things must, I suppose. The stakes are higher than they've ever been in this one, as Fin and Merrill race against not one, not two, but *three* apocalyptic terrors that threaten to destroy the Pirate Stream - and all of reality along with it!

The characters continue to be fun and interesting to read about, the action is thrilling, and the series' trademark inventiveness
