"A sparkleshine of whirldust." (a favorite phrase of Princess Ko) That's how I sum up this wonderful trilogy. The third part is most certainly the most satisfying and isn't that how it should be. The many threads that were pulled out here and there throughout parts one and two are woven together by the end of this volume.

I highly recommend it for its wonderful worldbuilding and the intermittent bits on men like Byron, Vivaldi and Newton. A great cast of characters with some super duper plot twists -- one or two I was starting to guess while others were a complete surprise. Very well done!

Readers might have had some idea of the big twist from A Corner of White, but even if you suspected it, you're still going to be gobsmacked (and a little heartbroken) when it's revealed. But because Moriarty is so skilled, the big twist comes in the middle of the book and propels the rest of the story forward.

Princess Ko was the star of the second book (and trust me, she's still formidable), but Keira from Jagged Edge was perfectly developed from a snotty techno-elite (not to be confused with the Jagged Edge Elite) to a sincere team member of Elliot's crew from The Farms. Her budding romance with one of his friends (no hints who) also proceeded perfectly.

But that's not the main story. I'm not going to give it away, but as we always knew, Madeline and Elliot are the key to, literally, healing the world, and of course Isaac Newton will be there (literally) to give an assist.

Incredibly satisfying ending.

I loved the first two books in this series, and think Jaclyn Moriarty's writing is whimsical and electric. My lack of enthusiasm for this book rests entirely on me -- I simply didn't remember enough from the first two books to make sense of what happened in the final book.
I loved the relationship between Madeleine and Elliott and their multi-dimensional worlds and all the crazy things that happen between them and their friends to bring about a "colorful" ending. But I spent better part of the book totally confused.
So -- 5 stars for creativity and originality - 2 stars for reader inadequacy.

Such a fantastic ending to one of the most magical, clever trilogies I've ever read.
