A Trilogy that Does The Ending Right

I think we've all read them, the trilogies, the book series of books and stories that we have grown to love and then comes the final book and it just doesn't quite measure up.   Thankfully this was NOT the case with Luminescence, the final book in Braden Bell's Middle School Magic Series.

I was given a copy of Luminescence to review.
This final book begins with the Trio of friends not being fully united as guilt and sadness keep them apart after Dr. Timbre's supposed death. Lexa is sure he is still alive is and is willing to do anything to help find and rescue him. 

The Trio must learn to overcome their problems and learn to really work together, which will bring a power like nothing they ever could have imagined.

I like the way the characters continued to grow and develop and especially liked the role that Pilaf had in this book. You definitely need to read the first two books in the series before this one. This is a great series for the middle school level and maybe even 4th and 5th graders who are fans of fantasy type novels. 

Even though this series is about light fighting dark, it is written in way that it doesn't ever feel too dark or too much for the intend audience. When I read books intended for younger audiences I often read them with my kids in mind thinking they would enjoy it but it was a bit too young for me; this series was something that I just truly enjoyed for myself even as an adult. 

I highly recommend the Middle School Magic Series by Braden Bell.
