Book Review: Arch Enemy by Frank Beddor

This is the 3rd, and final, book in "The Looking Glass Wars" trilogy. When I started this book I was very intrigued about how Beddor was going to wrap up all the loose ends from the first two books in the series. I have to say I was not disappointed. The only frustration I had with the book was the very abrupt end. The endings to the other two books were awesome, but I have to say that the ending to this one lacked a little bit in my opinion. It did the job of tying everything up but it was so abrupt that it almost felt like he couldn't figure out a proper way to bring it to an end.

Despite the ending I would highly recommend not only this book, but the entire trilogy to anyone that is an avid YA reader. These books take you into the world of Wonderland in a way that I could have never imagined. The trilogy encompasses a great story with many twists and turns that will keep you entertained throughout. It gives a fresh life to many of the classic characters that you remember from Alice in Wonderland. This trilogy does a great job of bringing these characters to life for a new generation of readers to enjoy for years to come.

Overall I would give this book a solid 4.5/5

  1. Nice review. I'm pretty much addicted to the whole series. I’ve been searching the Looking Glass Wars series and found that they’re adding more to the story via Kickstarter.
