Summary

The final book in the Wizards of Once quartet. Warriors and wizards combine forces against the dreadful power of the Kingwitch, whose searing evil threatens not only the Wildwoods, but all its creatures.

Xar and Wish are on the final leg of their journey - first stop: the Mines of Unhappiness. Here, starvation is never far away for the magical creatures who toil in its horrible depths. Xar and Wish must escape and fast; Xar needs to take control of his ever-growing Witchstain, and Wish must achieve her destiny. But the Tazzelwurm is in their way, a grotesque monster who threatens to block every entrance. 

Time is not on their side, but the forests are calling them. Will their combined strength be enough for the biggest quest so far, to defeat the Kingwitch once and for all?

Amazing book with a couple issues for me!

My 8yo son and I loved this series of books. He says possibly the best one ever.

It was all very enjoyable and David Tennant is a fabulous narrator. His range of voices have me in awe! The Queen’s voice was my favourite!

The issues though…firstly the voice of one of the main characters changes in the 4th book, it changes to the same as Fishlegs from How to Train Your Dragon. This was very confusing for me!

And, secondly. Although I seem to be the only one who thinks this, the ending just didn’t sit right with me. The references to some very well known future characters was strange for me. No spoilers though!

Still glad we listened to them all though, and worrying if we’ll find another series we enjoy as much!

AMAZING this is a must have! (please look)

The story was brilliant. I have listened to this many times! Every thing here was superb and I waited and waited for this one (the last one) to come out when I was waiting I just kept on listening to the ones I could. Have you got the Harry Potter books and liked them? If so I'm sure this will be the same!

It is like magic that works on iron

Wonderful end of an magical journey of Wish and Xar.
Cressida did a terrific job with this story, and David Tennant was an excellent choice for the narrator. Winning combination. I enjoyed this book from the very beginning to the end. Marvelous!!!!

Thank you Cressida and David!!!!
