Burt, Marissa Story’s End (sequel to Storybound), 368 p. HarperCollins, APRIL 2013. $17. Content: G (some fantasy-typical fighting).
Now that Una knows that she is the daughters of the enemies of Story, she knows that she must figure out how to destroy them, before they destroy this new world that Una loves. All of her friends will be scattered across the land and put in mortal danger. A new friend, Kai, holds an important key to saving Story, but every character will have to take a stand. Allegiances will be challenged and friendships will be tested. Everyone will have to face their fears in order to save the day – and all of them will be surprised I one way or another.
Burt’s tale is very heroic, in the tradition of the The Neverending Story and such. I hope it doesn’t get lost among the large amounts of fantasy that are now available.
