“The Guardians’ powers are given the ultimate test as they journey to the moon itself in this fifth and final chapter book adventure of an epic series from William Joyce.
The Guardians came together to protect the childhoods of all who dream, and they are a formidable team: Nicholas St. North, E. Aster Bunnymund, Toothiana, the Sandman, Nightlight, and Katherine have thus far prevented Pitch from fulfilling his nightmarish plans.
But Pitch and his nightmare men lurk on the fringes, gathering strength, stewing in hate, and the Guardians know their guard needs one more member if they are going to vanquish Pitch for all eternity. And once they find the last in their band, they’ll travel to the secret realm of the Man in the Moon, encounter armies of Moonbots, and face the greatest battle since the Golden Age; and that is just the beginning of this grand conclusion to a series most grand.”
I don’t know why it took me so long to write this review, but I am finally doing it. I don’t even know where to start with this one. The final installment of The Guardians series is about Jack Frost and how he came to be. The beginning of this book was a bit confusing because there had been a time jump of centuries between the 4th book and this one. However, the confusion was the kind that made me want to keep reading to find out what happened rather than being completely annoyed and confused.
As the story went on it was just as incredible and beautiful as the rest of the series. I loved learning about Jack Frost and the other Guardians. I loved the story and the themes that were presented. This book had me crying at points and it was so gorgeous.
I absolutely love this series and I will probably be rereading them at some point. I don’t want to say too much because of spoilers, but these books are so wholesome and magical. I highly recommend them.
