Story's End Review

416 pages

Long ago, a King ruled the land of Story. . . . During his reign, Heroes, Villains, and characters of all kinds lived out new Tales filled with daring quests and epic struggles. Then the King disappeared, and over the years, nearly everyone forgot that he had ever existed. Now an evil Enemy has emerged, determined to write a new future for Story that he will control. And an ordinary girl named Una Fairchild is inextricably tangled up in his deadly plan. Una and her friends Peter and Indy are desperate to find a way to defeat the Enemy. But Una soon discovers that the real key may lie in her own mysterious ties to Story's past--and to the long-forgotten King, who could be Story's only hope for survival.

This sequel does not disappoint as the tale of the land of Story continues. Things have become pretty chaotic since the Enemy's release. Once again we are able to view things through the eyes of several different characters with Una remaining the main character. Although Una is young, she is impressive in her determination to help save Story and defeat her parents. Una is brave yet impulsive, and both qualities help her on her journey with her friends. I'm not always the biggest fan of Peter, but he is also brave although at times constantly self-involved. I loved that we were able to see some of the other areas in Story and discover that not all of the Villains may be as bad as they seem. This novel is extremely fast-paced and takes you on a wild adventure that culminates into an amazing ending. This novel is more for middle grade ages although I believe it is written well enough to be enjoyed by anyone with a love for fantasy novels. I definitely recommend this if you like magic and fantasy tales but make sure to read Storybound first.
