Description: The thrilling conclusion to the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Quest for the Spark trilogy!

The Nacht is growing stronger, and it's a race against time for Tom Elm and friends to find the final piece of the Spark before the entire Valley--and possibly the world--are plunged into eternal darkness. In this installment, the Queen of the Sky is brought down in the Pawa Mountains and our intrepid band of heroes is separated. What secrets can be found deep inside the mountains' caverns? Will the great mountain cat, Roque Ja, be ally or enemy? And will one of their very own betray them to evil?

Jake's Review: This book was totally boring and it took me a long time to finish it.  I like the original Bone series so much better. I was glad to finally get to the end especially since Mom forced me to read it all. The illustrations are the only reason I kept reading it. Plus I did have to find out how the story ended. It was a good ending which is the only reason I gave it so high a score. Sorry mom said I always had to tell the truth.

Jake's Rating: 3/10

Mom's Review: This is hard for me but I just couldn't get through it. I skipped half the book and just went to the end so I could find out what happened. I truly admire the effort and the talent of both the author and especially the artwork from Jeff Smith but this wasn't my favorite of the series. The artwork was top notch as always and no offense to Tom, it just wasn't my thing. I agree with Jake though the ending really worked

Mom's Rating: 4/10

We received this from Scholastic in exchange for an honest review - sorry guys really wanted to love
