    Disappointing The plot felt rushed and choppy, never seemed to find a rhythm or establish what direction the story was trying to take, and left any number of loose threads dangling For instance, the possibility of the view spoiler Cave men, armed with their metal, hide spoiler emerging to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting outside world is never referred to or discussed after the first time it is mentioned After all the horrors they experience, and the suggestion of worse to come, Jakkin Disappointing The plot felt rushed and choppy, never seemed to find a rhythm or establish what direction the story was trying to take, and left any number of loose threads dangling For instance, the possibility of the view spoiler Cave men, armed with their metal, hide spoiler emerging to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting outside world is never referred to or discussed after the first time it is mentioned After all the horrors they experience, and the suggestion of worse to come, Jakkin and Akki s escape no grand showdown, no moral victory over the madness and evil, just running away to safety felt like an anticlimax There were a lot of ideas swirling around here the heroes learning how to use their newfound telepathic ability, and coping with the total openness and vulnerability their mental link brings the theme of speech language intellect vs sending intuition emotion when they view spoiler live among the speechless cave dwellers hide spoiler the comparison between the dispassionate cullings of the farmers and the view spoiler cavemen s blood crazed sacrifice hide spoiler but none of these themes are fully explored They re just introduced, then left to lie There were a few good points the characterization of Hearts Blood s children, the way they communicate with their human siblings, was really delightful Overall, though, this was a slap dash muddle of a story that didn t live up to its potential I discovered the first three books of this series in a free bin, but not the last, so I don t know whether I ll be able to finish the series or not and it s indicative of how lackluster these books are that I m not too terribly put out by this I m mildly curious to see how Yolen decides to wrap things up but not so I d go out of my way to find out

    The main characters Akki and Jakkin, living in the mountains with Heart s Blood s offspring, discover a secret no one else on the planet appears to know It s an obvious homage to The Time Machine and yet it works pretty well Yolen has sorted out how her surprise could be the way it is and what the ramifications are More of the story follows Jakkin than Akki, which is kind of a shame since Akki probably has a lotthat could be told about her Akki still contributes a lot, though, and they The main characters Akki and Jakkin, living in the mountains with Heart s Blood s offspring, discover a secret no one else on the planet appears to know It s an obvious homage to The Time Machine and yet it works pretty well Yolen has sorted out how her surprise could be the way it is and what the ramifications are More of the story follows Jakkin than Akki, which is kind of a shame since Akki probably has a lotthat could be told about her Akki still contributes a lot, though, and they make a pretty good pair

    Every book in this series is completely different from the others This one was extraneous, weird, and discomfiting And kinda gross I liked the first book of this series the best and did not enjoy books 2 or 3, so I don t recommend picking it up.Someone on Goodreads told me to definitely avoid book 4 so I m taking that advice.

    Read this series then only 3 books when I was a kid back in middle school I absolutely loved every page I plan on going back through this series eventually, especially since there s a new book as of 2009 we ll see if I enjoy it as much as an adult.

    Solid finish to the series well, original trilogy , following up on the new elements introduced at the end of the second book.

    Meh, I m giving up on this halfway through I just don t care enough to finish it The main characters have adopted some wild baby dragons that they re sort of raising while they re trying to escape capture from the authorities They go underground stumble upon some isolated humans who have formed a completely different society This should be a fun, cool, series with some interesting world building, but somehow Yolen has just botched this I ve really enjoyed some of her other books, which Meh, I m giving up on this halfway through I just don t care enough to finish it The main characters have adopted some wild baby dragons that they re sort of raising while they re trying to escape capture from the authorities They go underground stumble upon some isolated humans who have formed a completely different society This should be a fun, cool, series with some interesting world building, but somehow Yolen has just botched this I ve really enjoyed some of her other books, which is why it s so surprising that I don t like these If I d started here, I never would have picked up any of her other works I would recommend these works written by her Foiled graphic novel seriesMapping the Bones a retelling of Hansel Gretel in Nazi occupied PolandThe Emerald Circus a series of short stories poems

    Kinda feels like everything that was built up in the first two books the Austarian economy and culture, the dragon fighting pits, Jakkin joining the Master class, the rebel vs Fedder plot gets ignored so we can spend a bunch of time staring up the birthing canal of a pregnant dragon in the mountains If that s not your thing, you probably won t enjoy this book I know I didn t.The twist in the final chapter about two of the characters we thought were dead actually being alive felt really Kinda feels like everything that was built up in the first two books the Austarian economy and culture, the dragon fighting pits, Jakkin joining the Master class, the rebel vs Fedder plot gets ignored so we can spend a bunch of time staring up the birthing canal of a pregnant dragon in the mountains If that s not your thing, you probably won t enjoy this book I know I didn t.The twist in the final chapter about two of the characters we thought were dead actually being alive felt really contrived You have to sit through one of them telling Jakkin and Akki all about how they cleaned up the Rokk Major bombing mess and cleared their names while they were off hiding in the mountains, and it s just That would have been a cool story to read Why wasn t that the plot of this book Especially because Jakkin and Akki don t plan on doing anything with what they learned in the mountains Ugh
