The final book of the YA fantasy trilogy of the Goodman Children's Otherworldly Search for their Kidnapped Parents The fanfare resounds and the stage is set for Lady Cici’s engagement to Prince Marcus. But she feels dreadful because she no longer wants to marry Marcus; Ornardo is all she wants. But does Ornardo, with his mind and soul full of his sister and his dead family, still love her as he did before? Lord Shusha suggests to Cici that she and Ornardo have a picnic, just as they used to. Perhaps the repetition of a past event will bring back Ornardo’s affection for her. Cici jumps at the idea, and Ornardo is also enthusiastic about the picnic. For Jack, however, it is exhausting to watch. There is no doubt that Ornardo is enjoying himself ”" re-enacting a picnic that ended mysteriously and tragically in the past ”" but Jack feels he is just being dragged along. Ornardo throws himself into the picnic with such conviction and vigour that it is almost as if he believes deep inside that, if he repeats the event with the utmost optimism, he can rewind the past to a certain instant and then head forward on a new path ... The promise of Brianna’s healing power is diminished by her complete aversion to Prince Mapolos. If she cannot be coaxed to exert her healing influence on his behalf, then she must be forced. The theatre is set, the wheel is turning, Bo’s small body is glowing under the moonbeams. Prince Mapolos, with his veins connected to the tubes, is in a feverish state, pacing incessantly, like a trapped animal that smells blood. It is like a magic show ”" the deformed man disappears, and in his place a well-proportioned, trim young man stands, glowing like the blue moon in a pale sky. It is the sovereign’s glow. Prince Mapolos has been transformed, with every cell in his blood containing the ruling gene segments cut from Bo’s DNA, he is now the heir apparent. For Prince Mapolos only one more thing remains to be done: it is time to accuse Prince Marcus of treason and rid the kingdom of him and his loathsome children. Reviews from Readers' favorite “The character development just kept on growing and the story line has to be one of the best I have read in years.” -- Anne-Marie Reynolds “The characters are compelling and they exude the kind of irresistible charm that makes readers only too eager to follow them in their time and astral travels, watch them in their mounting conflicts, and cry as some tumble.” -- Romuald Dzemo "Action-packed stories which keep you on the edge of your seat.

    This book reminds me of my dreams: vividly illogical. A string of wildly fanciful scenes, racing one after another, the connecting thread often difficult to follow but none the less captivating for it. I jumped into this series with this, the third installment. No doubt the details would have been easier to process if I have read the previous titles, and I'd recommend doing so to other readers.

A string of wildly fanciful scenes, racing one after another, the connecting thread often difficult to follow but none the less captivating for it. I jumped into this series with this, the third installment. No doubt the details would have been easier to process if I have read the previous titles, and I'd recommend doing so to other readers. Coming in midstream did take some getting used to, as did the unusual nature of the story—a clever combination of fantasy and technology unlike anything I've read before. The POV bounces frequently between a half-dozen or so characters. It's a lot for a book this length, and we do not necessarily get to know any one of them as well as I would have liked, but at no point did it become particularly confusing. The pacing is fast throughout, although most of the heavy drama and memorable action takes place in the second half. The author is very talented. There is a flair here seldom seen any more, and I wish more contemporaries would do as this writer has done and seek to find their unique style and voice. That said, all is not perfect. There are a few (but not many) typos, and I feel that the characters could be developed a bit more. I would not describe anything in this book as cliche, but as I firm believer in the complexity and contradictions of human nature I would have liked to have seen a bit more of that. For me, the most interesting character was one who had to balance two conflicting loyalties. But the story is unique and compelling enough to make this a worthwhile read for anyone interested in a fantasy setting without orcs and elves. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.

    Going into reading this book, I didn't really know what to expect, as to me its cover and description led me to believe it was a genre that wouldn't interest me (fantasy/science fiction), but instead I really enjoyed the authors tale. Some of the scenes do seem at times running in different directions, but really enjoyed the characters much more than I would have imagined. The language just seemed a bit abundantly fanciful than it needed to be at the start, but felt it was much better as the sto Going into reading this book, I didn't really know what to expect, as to me its cover and description led me to believe it was a genre that wouldn't interest me (fantasy/science fiction), but instead I really enjoyed the authors tale.

The language just seemed a bit abundantly fanciful than it needed to be at the start, but felt it was much better as the story progressed. I thought the book and storyline moved better when the author set a scene, and helped you imagine the intricately fine details, more so than when it was quoting dialogue directly character to character, as the story just seemed to move faster when the first technique was used, and slower on using the second. I look forward to reading more of Ms Walker work in the future.

    Coral Walker’s incredible grand finale to the ‘Children of Swan’ series literally had me holding my breath in many places. With so many twists and turns, I never knew what to expect when turning each page. The action and adventure was non-stop and it was impossible to figure out who was trying to help and who had more sinister plans, as so many of the characters had put on a false façade which was convincing enough to fool not only the other characters in the book, but also the reader. ‘The Land Coral Walker’s incredible grand finale to the ‘Children of Swan’ series literally had me holding my breath in many places.

I recommend this book to those from the age of 12 onwards who enjoy fast-paced, action-packed stories which keep you on the edge of your seat. - Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite
