I'm so not going to be ready when this series ends. I loved book 4 The Enchanted and book 5 The Scroll built on what I loved. I really tried not to rush through this book, but it just wasn't possible. I was so wrapped up in the story that I couldn't put the book down.
Darcy's connection to Alitheia seems stronger. Now that she realizes her love for Tellius she doesn't want to be parted from him. It's not like she can write to him or call him on the phone. However, she does have a connection to that world. Through the compact mirror she can look upon her friends in Alitheia, but not everything is as it should be. Deception runs deep in The Scroll as time to save both Alitheia and her own world runs short.
Have you been following The Gateway Chronicles? If not, you should probably read the other four books before continuing with the is review as there may be series spoilers.
Read my reviews:
K. B. lets us in a little on the space-time continuum that is spanned or broken or something every time the six goes through the gateway. We know that they return to the exact moment when they come back. But does time just stand still at Cedar Cove while they are in Alitheia? Or is everyone reliving the year?
I cannot believe there is only one more book in this series. It is so good; I want it to go on forever.
If you have been following this series, you are probably like me and were looking forward Darcy and Tellius being together in this book. However, Tellius isn't seen much in The Scroll. But it's okay because the scene at the end has him being the perfect romantic hero without being cheesy. Totally swoon worthy (if I was a teenager of course). The six are growing up, their relationships with one another are changing. At the same time, they seem to coming together better than ever before.
The Gateway Chronicles is a series that can be enjoyed by the entire family. And I think it would make a great family activity to encourage everyone to read more. This series has something for everyone. K. B. Hoyle is an awesome storyteller and, if possible, her writing is even better in The Scroll.
