Book Review #1083 The Wyrm King by Holly Black
Book Review #1083
The Wyrm King by Holly Black, illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi
Rating: one star (out of four)
Love, love, love Tony DiTerlizz's illustrations. They are gorgeous. The book was, sadly, "okay." I hadn't been in love with the Spiderwick Chronicles, but I was reading this series to see what would happen next in the Spiderwick world. I didn't care for the way things ended and felt like there could have been more closure. The characters didn't seem as fully developed and I wanted more from the story. It felt kind of rushed and also very short. But if you were a big fan of the Spiderwick Chronicles I could see you liking this series. But for me, it was a disappointment.
