I thought this was a great ending to a great series. All the excitement, traveling, character development, story line, and good versus evil in an easy to read, less convoluted format than any other book series I've read. I loved all the characters, even the ones that were maybe supposed to be comic relief type of characters were endearing. It left me feeling satisfied and entertained. I really despise books that end in a very abrupt way. If there is any place in a book that I like to the story drawn out a bit, it is the ending. It is much more satisfying to me. It is probably because that is how real life is. Rarely does someone just drop out of your life without any explanation or without knowing what will happen to them in the future. Anyway, sorry that was kind of long about why I liked the ending.
Did I mention I loved this series? I wish, wish, wish they would make it into epic movies. It would be so incredible. Read it!

Drew Graham YAY, I'm glad you liked them. I would love to see them given the epic movie treatment too. Let's start a petition.

Marci Christensen Wouldn't it be such a great movie(s)!? I'm actually surprised that they haven't done it beyond the animated movie anyway.

Drew Graham Well, the story of the animated version is a long and interesting and dramatic one (that I will tell you one day if you're interested in a little excessive Disney history), but I think a live-action production of the whole series would be so great.
