Just got done this series and I have to say WOW. I am pretty upset that I didn’t read it when I was younger. I think I would have been 20 times more excited to have read this series than I am now.
This is definitely a series I plan to buy and add to my collection for my children to read later on.
I love the bond that the children have with each other and how much they look out for each other. They all have specials skills that contribute to their success to defeating Mulgarath and his goblins. I also love how the book never gets boring and there is always something going on, always a new problem to solve.
My favorite part would have to be the dwarves and their lifestyle. Especially, the metal tree. Just picturing it in my head was amazing. That was really a nice touch by authors.
Now, I waited until I read all five books to watch the movie and I was very disappointed. Compared to the books it was terrible. I really looked forward to see the books come a live and I just got cheaper, cut down version. It was terrible for me. Maybe for someone who never read the books I can see how the movie would spark some interest but not after reading the books. I was heart broken.
These are definitely books children should read as they promote teamwork, problem solving skills, and family values. Just the world you get immersed into is simply amazing and can’t believe that one person wouldn’t be at least a little interested in how the story ends.
