He was wrong.
Left for dead in a place where malicious spirits feast on the living, Theo has only just begun to learn that glory comes at a price. With his new friends fighting for their lives, Theo is thrown off course and embroiled in a murder mystery that must be solved before he can save his little sister from a gruesome fate. A crackpot inventor and a pure-hearted young knight are on the job, but Theo already knows the killer. He sees the Beast of Calharik every night, when he looks down in terror at his own bloodied hands.
Set against a backdrop of steam-powered robots, tall ships, and a seaside populace at the mercy of the rich, Everywhere the Road Ends picks up the action right where The Goldenwealth Light left off. Get ready for another exotic trip to the World of Ord, complete with new faces, twice the nail-biting action, and hours of page turning adventure!
We really get to know the characters in this novel. McCloskey takes those that we met in the first novel and continues to develop them. Not only do they exist in the present, but we also find out where they came from and what makes them who they are today. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This is definitely one of my favourite YA fantasy series. I`d highly recommend it to those who enjoy the genre, but would suggest reading the series in order.
