In this satisfying conclusion to the mesmerizing Interworld series, readers will find themselves feverishly rereading chapters in order to follow a compelling plot line. Joseph Harker must figure out how to save his earth and all of the metauniverses that have already been destroyed by Frostnight, the result of the merging of two opposite forces, the Binary and the Hex. He finds himself on a destroyed beta-InterWorld ship, with an army of his para-incarnations on a mission to get it running to save his earth. This is no easy task, but Joey forges on since there is no other conceivable alternative.
Mind blowing is the best description for the situations that Harker must escape. The multiverse is beautiful, and the nightmarish characters from the evil competing forces are beautiful, dark, and mysteriously written, in a style that will conjure images that will linger in the reader's thoughts. The proliferation of characters, however, is confusing, to say the least. No sooner does one J-named Joey para-incarnation crop up than another shifts focus. It is recommended that readers take notes as they follow along. That being said, the conclusion of this trilogy will not disappoint InterWorld fans. It will keep them sucked in until the very end. --Victoria Vogel.
