This is the fourth installment in the Kiwi series. For many reasons, I think it is the best one yet. First and foremost, it draws upon all the characters of the previous three books. In this respect it is a real treat for readers, like me, who have read the previous three books. All your favorite characters from the series are in this one. Including the enigmatic Dev, the lovable Inspector Furball, all the catizens from cat city and the fantastic characters from other realms. Rats, hamsters, squirrels oh my! Secondly, we get to travel to yet another magical realm with many memorable characters and perhaps the most formidable and fearsome enemy the catizens have faced thus far in the series. Even though this makes for a epic ensemble of characters, for the readers of the series it is less about a huge cast and more about a rewarding continuation of what is turning into a saga of Kiwi's magical family, friends and enemies. Lots of action, mystery, and magic in this book. As I said before, this book is for the Kiwi fan. Perhaps not the choice for the first time reader of the Kiwi series, but for the long term fan like me it is a read treat and essential read. I sense a shift in the direction of this series. A shift from cute little stand alone books to a fully coherent young adult epic. A saga with coherent underlying themes and meaningful character development complete with deeper back stories for the principal characters. I applaud the new direction. With this book, Kiwi takes a giant pounce forward as a literary treasure.
