Three children stumble upon an extraordinary library in an old house. Armed with magical books, and accompanied by an enchanting deerhound, they leave through a door that takes them to a world in the past. Beyond the door, a kingdom is in crisis.
The children must unlock the secrets in their books as they face storms, fight traitors and tackle dragons.
The Great Sword of State has been stolen and destroyed. The Queen reveals an ancient prophecy that says only these children can replace the Sword and she sends them on a journey that takes them beyond the world’s end.
Without knowing who they can trust, can they succeed?
I gave this book 3 stars as i enjoyed the whole concept of the story but i was really hoping to be more entertained but it seem to be a very flat kind of story. The whole part with the dragons was very interesting. I like how the books the children got from the palace library each had their own unique traits that fit with the child they were given to. I did feel that the one child who got stuck with the cryptic riddle book did more complaining about the book then he did really using it except for memorizing the prophecy. This series is great for little kids but it not even close to being on par with chronicles of narnia in entertainment value.
