The rating chosen for this review reflects my extreme disappointment with this volume in particular and, because this concludes a trilogy, with the series as a whole.

As with the others, it is a bit of a travelogue. Here we see the Elven land of Irriyan and travel on the last leg of the journey to Seer's Keep, the destination for the three children from our world since book 1. None of the locations are particularly well evoked although the sequence when Carrie, Craig and yet another new characte

Ah fantasy books in the nineties! Humans are usually centred. Elves have pointy ears and higher culture. Dwarves are rough and working class and sometimes a figure of fun (in this book at least that last cliche was avoided) there is some other fantastical "race" (in this case goblins being the main one and to Lawrence's credit a few others figured) and a map of the land at the beginning of the book.

So this was recognisably fantasy from its era. What made it a little better than most was that the
