    The main character jumps from age thirteen in the preceding book of this series to eighteen in this, so I suppose it should be YA, but the earlier books seemed clearly middle grade, so I d still call it middle grade, though I think it would appealto slightly older readers I still love Felix, but I loved himas a twelve and thirteen year old than eighteen Oh, wel...

    Loved this It was a bold move to move on several years and make Felix a young man in this book I was surprised, and then delighted The multilayered characters are wonderful The setting and attention to historical detail whether faithful or not is engrossing.

    A fine conclusion to a set of fine adventures I love how Felix consults with God in all his adventures It s so natural and instinctive I think the middle novel was the best in construction and execution, but if you read one, you have to read them all They are quick reads.

  8. Clover White says:
