Review by Dhruv Jhaveri

David Charleston’s epic adventure continues in the third and final installment of the Reckoners series. In this book David is left without his fellow Reckoners, Valentine and Excel, who have been murdered by former Reckoner, Jonathan Phaedrus (AKA: Prof.) Prof turns into an evil epic after he falls into a trap set by Regalia. But, David still works with what is left of them to try and convert Prof back into a good Reckoner, sworn to fight evil. Does Prof become a Reckoner again? Does David and his team survive? Read the book to find out.

This book was so AMAZING. I would give it a million stars if I could. What made this book so strong was the organization and the order in which the events occurred. The book was also very humorous, just like the rest of the books in the series because of the bad similes. For instance, when David feels left out, he says he feels like a loaf of bread at a rock party, because everybody wants to see the cool rocks and no one care about the bread. I would recommend this series of books to people who like fast action, humorous, fantasy books.
