My Review of the Series: This series is a must read! The characters are so vibrant and diverse. Each one has a very distinct personality from the others. My personal favorite character is Mr. Mishkin because he has such a huge heart! The world of Morada is fleshed out and interesting as well. From Firefly Forest to Old Elvin Grove each area has its own distinct culture and people who live there. Sprites! Giants! Dragons, Oh my! The plot for the overall series as well as each individual book linked together perfectly. Author Joplin James really made the books so thrilling with twists and turns no one could imagine. So if you like fantasy then please make sure to read this wonder tale of magic and wonder. It gets a 5 out of 5 from me!
