The series has remained entertaining, but it's so complex now! Time has been unraveled--the Keep of Time is no more--and both worlds are in great danger, not particularly from the Winter King, but from a darker, more ancient Evil. The Caretakers have lost the ability to travel in time AND the ability to travel to the Archipelago. Both worlds are in danger, the Archipelago perhaps will experience the danger first, but, in the end the real world faces the threat of overwhelming darkness too. This adventure has the team of Caretakers (plus a varied assortment of talking animals) traveling through the one remaining door from the Keep of Time, the door that Madoc traveled through in the previous book, and spending a great amount of time in the 1760s. (Meeting Daniel Defoe, Benjamin Franklin, etc.) Can time be restored? Can darkness be defeated?
I am still enjoying this series. This book is the result of a whole series of consequences. For every previous decision, readers are now witnessing the full consequences of every person's actions and decisions. And I think it may also be the darkest or bleakest of the series. I can't wait to begin the newest book in the series, The Dragons of Winter.
