This is the third book in this series. A group of Gelfling, including one in the body of a spider, are out to try to warn the other Gelfing about the true nature of the Skeksis and get some kind of resistance movement going. They meet other clans, talk to various leaders, try to survive a terrible storm, try to bring a tree back to life, fight a Skeksis and try to use their abilities to warn all Gelfling everywhere of just what is going on.

The story is done well and the scenes are interesting. T

Yikes.

Of the three books that have been released, this one I think suffered in terms of plot. Nothing really was happening and it was full of character development. Character development however isn't enough to cover this book's ass.

Another thing: I dislike books that most of the scenes take place on a boat. I've seen some books where it works, aka Robin Hobb's The Liveship Traders. But boy oh boy, nothing happened on the boat and or the boat wasn't that determental to the plot. I groaned every

My favorite book and character of the series so far. Amri is a cool character to follow in his development. He battles fear and doubt in order to be lead bravely even when he doesn't realize it. His story teaches the reader that you don't have to be fearless to be courageous, but carrying on the right path (instead of the easy path) in spite of fear makes you brave. His humility makes his heroism even more meaningful. And again, he's another hero who's not afraid to accept help, which is good in ...more

The Dark Crystal is so special to me, it has fond memories for me. Reading this prequel series is a joyride for me, and I cannot wait to see the Netflix show. I enjoyed this book, being the third in the series, I just wish they would come out sooner than they do. Mr. Lee keeps it open for the next book and it feels like forever to see what happens. I'm excited to see what is to come.

The third installment from Amri's perspective, a character I greatly enjoyed watching develop. Yes, this could be dubbed a filler, but for a die-hard Dark Crystal fan, its been a joy to see the lead-up story to the Dark Crystal I grew up with. Can't wait for book 4 and the Netflix show.

I am really enjoying this series and cannot wait for the final book in this series! I have been a huge Jim Henson fan all of my life and love diving into new works as often as possible! It is such a wonderfully nostalgic stroll down memory lane.

Definitely not my favourite of the series. But it was still very enjoyable. Its definitely not the last book of this series but now I have to wait till the next book comes out.

Born and raised in the great Minnesota north, Joe spent his formative years searching for talking animals and believing he could control the weather. After pursuing nerdy interests in comparative film studies, screenwriting, and Shakespeare, he graduated from the University of Minnesota with a much nerdier degree in linguistics with a focus in Japanese phonology.

In addition to writing novels, Joe
