Gr 7 Up—Evil sorcerer Rob Lynburn, master of Aurimere House, has nefarious plans for those villagers in Sorry-in-the-Vale who won't join his side. He's strengthening his powers in preparation, which requires nothing less than human sacrifice. Kami Glass intends to stop him, but how? Her link with Jared has been severed—and he's missing. Her new link with Ash isn't helping and her mother is living up at Aurimere, serving Rob and his ilk. The good guys are outnumbered and out-magicked, but Kami refuses to give up. Research turns up one ritual that might help, but it could end up killing all of them. Brennan keeps the action coming and the dialogue zippy and quippy. Kami and her friends are a delight and readers will root for them to save themselves and their town and for everyone to end up kissing whoever they want to kiss. This trilogy ender isn't really a stand-alone though; readers will be well served by reading the previous, equally charming installments.—Stephanie Klose, School Library Journal

Now the situation quickly goes from bad to terrible. As in the trilogy's previous books, suspense and action are balanced by snarky humor and moments of sweetness.

Now, Jared has returned alive; otherwise, the situation quickly goes from bad to terrible. As in the previous books in the series, the emotional suspense and violent magical action are well balanced by snarky humor and moments of sweetness -- romantic (including
