ok let's get this out of the way at the start, this was not a great book. i think there are very few people who have read it who will disagree. many of the plot points were at best to convenient and at worst unbelievable even for a world that contains winged children, but if we were honest with ourselves no one really expected this to rifle Shakespeare or Chaucer but it does not have to be to be enjoyable. i believe one fellow reviewer compared it to brain candy and suggested that simply reading it could lower ones intelligence. i have to disagree at the very least a book like this stimulates the imagination, so lets call it more accurately brain junk food perhaps not the best for you but not with out some nutritional value. one other reviewer suggested this book for the blind and then spouted off a revue that was no more then barely literate vitriol that leaves me in some doubt as to the reviewer's ability to read and understand the book but god love em they are trying. unfortunately for this person the blind are both able to read this book and it's subsequent revue. i will wrap this up now as i am more reviewing the reviewers then the book and that is really not what i started out to do. this is a popcorn book read and quickly forgotten but not with out the charm and style of the first 2 installments albeit in a somewhat diminished quantity.
