feels different from the rest, as the peril feelsreal While most of the books start out when the peril just started, and the peril is undone before it gets worse Here, they re already smack dab into an icy cold winter For once people died It s a bitserious, and it reflects in the characters.Rowan is a lotmature in this book, though that s partially because he got temporarily gifted with the power of a Wiseman prophecies and such , partially because this was about the Bukshah Rowan is the keeper of the Bukshah, responsible for the gentle beasts I m a bit iffy about the supporting cast Zeel is a nice returnee, but Norris and Shaaran are new additions, making their appearance in the fourth book, and I wasn t the biggest fan of them Norris was just strong headed, and Shaaran cried a lot I mean, I would be the one crying in her situation, but still I like the cast of the last book better, and considering this a re read, I findvalue in strong characters than in a strong story Because I remember the story all too well.Story wise, I think this one is the best for first time readers It covers a lot of mystery, mystery I was already aware of Some things still surprised me, and I feel I have a better sense of the story itself, the way the world is built, how scenes played out But I think that smaturity as a reader However, what the story did well is that it was a lotserious The stakes were higher, there wasaction, there were hints of romance and humans were painted in a partially bad picture Sometimes humans were the source of evil, even if not intended There was some nice thought out twists and turns and revelations However, there were still things in the plot that irked me, and that was mostly the fact the book isn t quite meant for re reading It heavily relies on the mystery, and without the mystery, it didn t have a lot going for.Surprisingly, this book scored the same as the first two books, which means it shares a three way third place, or last place, whatever suits you better The darker themes and higher stakes made the bookinteresting, but the lack of suspense and cast, which wasn t my favourite, made it a 3.5 stars instead of 4 The book was still perfectly enjoyable, and I don t regret re reading the series Just next time I might have to wait with re reading so that my memory won t ruin my experience I chose this book because i found the book cover on the front cool with the ice dragons and as I read the blurb on the back i got hooked in to the book.The category on the bingo board was the male main character, I usually read books where the are male.A character i found interesting was Rowan, what I like about this character is how he was different from the other boys in his village and knew things that helped his group when he goes on journeys.A thing I learnt from the book is how a ordinary I chose this book because i found the book cover on the front cool with the ice dragons and as I read the blurb on the back i got hooked in to

come across in the journey of the mountain ( Ebook ) ♢ Rowan of the Bukshah ♀ Four must make their sacrificeIn the realm twixt fire and iceThe quest unites both life and death The wise woman Sheba s ominous words haunt Rowan The bitter winter has lasted far too long and won t loosen its deadly hold on the land As food stores dwindle, the people of Rin flee to the warmer coast Rowan and two friends and a shadow journey up the mountain that towers over Rin to seek the source of the unending cold Rowan knows from past experience that the mountain is unpredictable and harbors many dangers But now waves of freezing air stream down its sides And ferocious ice creepers giant eyeless creatures with gaping jaws and teeth like shards of ice slither from its shadow eager to devour any warm being Will Rowan and his friends somehow be able to bring spring and life back to the land Can they survive the perils of the mountain and the attacks of the ice creepers These books are really good I wish I d started them in order, though Emily Rodda is really good at creating complex riddles, which is one of the reasons why this book was so good. A solid ending to a fantastic YA Middle grade series, filled with mysterious creatures, adventures, and of course, meaningful friendships And for me, a bunch of nostalgia Rodda does not disappoint.When you reach the end of a series, there are very high expectations It s difficult to write something that encapsulates the spirit of the series whilst trying to accomplish something that is different from the rest of the series without seeming rehashed Rodda balances this splendidly Not only is the setting just like book 1, but many of the same themes and character roles are played out Character development parallels can be made between Shaaran and Rowan, of Jonn Rodda does not disappoint.When you reach the end of a series, there are very high expectations It s difficult to

Not only is the setting just like book 1, but many of the same themes and character roles are played out Character development parallels can be made between Shaaran and Rowan, of Jonn and Norris, of Zeel and Bronden But yet each character has a slightly different role to play.I also thought this book was incredibly grimso than any of the other books Unlike the first two books, I really did feel that the stakes were incredibly high Most of the time, Rowan and his friends are barely escaping with their lives, instead of brushing themselves off going well THAT happened There were so many things going on that elevated the threat level to the main character and to the others as a whole, that I genuinely felt real concern that people were going to die And people DID die, there was a character death in the first third of the book The entire world building answer to the biggest questions brought up at different points in the series was brilliantly written The answer to the ice creepers didn t feel contrived or deus ex machina at all In fact, it felt quite natural, and made sense I m ashamed I doubted Rodda, she s very clever not just with riddles but how the riddle relates.I was so pleased at the end of the series I feel completely satisfied and totally glad I gave it another chance after the first book It really is the weakest of the series, which is too bad for a first book But assuming people continue with it as I did, they will be rewarded have youever read a book and said, FOR FUCKS SAKE HOW FUCKING DENSE CAN YOU BE YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHIT YOU ARE DUMBER THAN A FUCKING ROCK this is how i felt reading Rowan of Rinthere is a witch in this series, and she is constantly frustrated because everyone around her are stupid pieces of shit she is the only reason i put up with the books because i felt what she must feel.she was constrained by her magic to give the heroes vague predictions of the future, and every time she did, what the have youever read a book and

times proved that the songs gave them guidance on their quest did they decided to take them into consideration oh no, not that, the witch is dumb and mean, and she wants to trick us with stupid songs, lets not do what she saidand then they fear them because she gets mad every time they come asking for help and the hero, oh, the hero is the worst of all, this fucking piece of shit with a brain smaller than a bee s had to follow her songs for 5 different books, do you think he would ever learn to trust them and figure what they meant NO, HE DIDN T and that ends my review of Rowan of Rin, 10 10 The final tale in the saga of Rowan of Rin brings everything full circle And I love it it not only ends by giving you hope for the future, but it also completes the journey not just Rowan s, but also that of the Bukshah And the Maris And the Travelers And the Zebak And the people of the Valley of Gold Which all worked in beautifully And after closing the last page of this book, I was left with a great, big grin on my face.This is Rowan s last epic quest, and it is certainly a lotThe final tale in the saga of Rowan of Rin brings everything full circle And I love it it not only ends by

Which all worked in beautifully And after closing the last page of this book, I was left with a great, big grin on my face.This is Rowan s last epic quest, and it is certainly a lotintense than the others Not only because there seems to beat stake, and the past is coming to life But because it not only affects one or two of the peoples of the land It affects all of them And the evil could potentially spread even further than just the Travelers, the Maris and the people of Rin.As an ecologist, I love the idea that everything serves its place in the system I thrive on the idea that every moment, every interaction, every creature has a purpose and that just by removing one thing from this, the equilibrium is completely destroyed Rowan of the Bukshah really reminded me of that It drives home the fact that everything and anything has a sense of importance and a place in the world It also reassures me that I too, have a place in this world
