School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-7-This third book in the series (after Maggie Stiefvater's Hunted) jumps right into the action. Meilin and her spirit panda, Jhi, are trapped and starving in a bamboo maze while her erstwhile companions Conor (Spirit wolf Briggan), Abeke (Spirit leopard Uraza), and Rollan (Spirit falcon Essix) are sailing into enemy territory. Determined to defeat the Destroyer and his army of Conquerors, the team reunites to survive leeches, spiders, stinging ants, poisoned arrows shot by rhino riders, giant crocodiles, and even the Sunset Death to acquire the talisman of Dinesh the Elephant. Our heroes win the battle, but there's more to come in this war of good against evil in the four titles planned through 2015. Nicola Butler relates the story in a variety of expressive British accents, with each character differentiated by tone. The nonstop action, ever-present danger, and narrow escapes will appeal to fantasy lovers, especially veterans of" The "39 Clues" and "Infinity Ring" series.- Toby Rajput, National Louis University, Skokie, IL (c) Copyright 2014.

Booklist Review

After being separated in the tumultuous ending of the second book in the Spirit Animal series, the four Greencloaks and their Spirit Animals reunite and begin to finally work together, exploring their powers as they continue to fight the Conquerors' ever-growing forces. These authors, at the top of their games, offer an exciting narrative and place readers one step closer to an inevitably epic conclusion.--Fort, Bethany Copyright 2010 Booklist

Twin troubletwisters Jack and Jaide are adjusting to the arrival of another troubletwister, Stefano, when they learn about the Wardens' new plan to destroy The Evil for good. The twins set out to rescue Grandma X's twin sister from the Evil Dimension, leading to a game-changing final confrontation with The Evil in this fourth installment of the predictable series.
