This book is the third in the MindWar trilogy, bringing Klavan’s thrilling animated adventure to a close. Like Klavan’s other works, the epic tale is engaging and entertaining, whisking the reader away from the comfort of their home and into the MindWar Realm, a fascinating, yet warped, fabrication by the computer terrorist Kurodar. In a world where the grass is never green and the sky is never blue, former football star and current savior of the United States Rick Dial, with the help of the sprite Favian and water spirit Mariel, must face the twisted mind of the evil terrorist and bring him down before he sets America ablaze.
The read kept me gripped and turning pages from start to finish, even though I never read the first two titles in the series. Some may want to start with book one, but in this case, you don’t have to. However, one thing is for sure: while this book contains language and prose for a younger reader, the content does contain a fair amount of graphic violence, placing this book in the “high school” reader age bracket. The age of the characters being close to that range is a solid fit as well.
Overall, this book was fun to read and one of the few that I stuck with until the very end. It does include evangelical moments, but are wholly important and necessary for the success of this title. Two thumbs up.
