Fantasy Book Review: Five Kingdoms: Death Weavers

Five Kingdoms: Death Weavers by Brandon Mull

Synopsis:
Since arriving in the Outskirts, Cole and his friends have fought monsters, challenged knights, and battled rampaging robots. But none of that has prepared them for Necronum.

In this haunting kingdom, it’s hard to tell the living from the dead, and secret pacts carry terrifying risks. Within Necronum lies the echolands, a waystation for the departed where the living seldom venture.

Still separated from his power, Cole must cross to the echolands and rely on his instincts to help rescue his friends. With enemies closing in, Cole risks losing everything to find the one thing that might save them.

Review:
Cole and his friends visit the strange Necronum kingdom, searching for missing princesses, in this latest installment in the Five Kingdoms series. It’s a land of ghost-like echos and strange rules.

The Death Weavers is the fourth installment in this epic fantasy series for middle readers. It’s full of danger, suspense, drama, and plot twists. There are also some familiar and beloved characters from another series who make an appearance. This is by far the most unique land that Mull has created – vivid and immense. I’m a big fan of his novels, and these just continue to impress. I look forward to the final installment in this exciting and captivating series.
