Devastated by loss and hampered by war, Fifer struggles to regroup and continue the search for her twin. Meanwhile Thisbe, pounded by images of Grimere’s dark history, contemplates her abandonment and considers leaving Rohan behind in a risky move that could take her home…or to her death.
There is some reason why I always return to the world Artimé. It’s adventurous, creative, and filled with awesome characters. Also, don’t forget about the creative weaponry involved with the world’s magic as well. Even though this is middle grade, there is something in the series that makes it for all ages.
Through so many adventures (and some misadventures) there is always something to learn and something new (even when it comes to twists), something that Dragon Ghosts shows to continue with. After an unseen, shocking twist in the last book, Fifer and Thisbe must continue to survive and learn to use their magic without any guidance. While that it shows to be hard, the twins learn to be smart and to lead, given the circumstances they are currently in.
In Dragon Ghosts, the duration of the book stays in the world of Dragonsmarche. Dragonsmarche has been the main location in the story line thus far for the entire the series. Even though Dragonsmarche has been shown to be important to the story line, it was nice to see some sort of conclusion and that we, along with the cast, will start to see new things in the next upcoming book. There’s nothing against Dragonsmarche (except for the rulers and how they came to be). There’s some excitement that there is finally something new along the way. Even though it seemed that it may not be exactly ideal, I can’t wait to see what happens.
If you happen to be wondering; yes, there is the classic McMann twist at the end that is going to make you want to (wait impatiently and) get the next book to continue the adventures of Fifer and Thisbe. Since there is going to be many new things, I can’t wait to see the endless possibilities that is to come.
