"What is the spell for?" Miranda asked curiously, stepping close beside him to squeeze through the first ring of trees. She didn't know of any goblin spells that used flowers unless they were crushed like herbs. "Do you really want to know?" murmured the elf absently, looking up at the dark crowns of the ancient oaks. "Yes," she said. She had always liked magic. He glanced back down at her then. "It's for you," he said. And the instant they passed the great trunks, his hand closed over her wrist.

(3.5 stars) The third book in the Hollow Kingdom series occurs takes place when Marak, the Goblin King introduced in the first book, is now nearing his death. In order to prepare for the future, he has groomed a human girl named Miranda, to be the King's Wife. His son, Marak Catspaw is faced with a difficult choice when after his father's death, they are visited by a group of elves whose leader offers him one of the women as his wife in return for access to the elvish books in possession of the goblins. Unable to turn down a marriage to a highly magical elf, Catspaw tells Miranda that she cannot be his wife. Devastated by the news, Miranda runs away and finds herself captured by the elves, with a spell on her so she can no longer bear the sunlight. Miranda and the new goblin queen each have vastly different circumstances to deal with, along with many misconceptions. As the two sides try to work out their differences and prejudices, it is unclear if the truce can be held or if war is imminent. This was an interesting conclusion to the series with a bit of a twist, but upholding the central theme of things being more than they initially seem, the folly of prejudice, and the art of cooperation and adaptation.

My teenage daughter ordered this; she said, "This was an excellent ending for the trilogy; I enjoyed it. The story was faster paced and a little more intense than the previous two; I was engaged the whole way through. It also has multiple points of view that give you a satisfactory final view of this world. It's a very creative world. Our library has copies of all three, but I enjoyed them enough and checked them out so often I decided I needed copies for myself. There are a few scary elements, and it's designed for an older teen audience, but I loved it."

Book three is likely the best of them all. This draws our adventure of the mysterious Hollow Kingdom to a satisfying close. The author seemed notably more comfortable with herself and the tales and maybe it was that the first two books gave her great practice to make a nearly faultless final adventure.

Following the death of Marak, Catspaw takes his place as king, preparing to marry Miranda, a human girl raised to be Catspaw's wife by Marak himself. But things quickly don't go as planned when elves return to the kingdom and an offer of an elvish bride pushes Catspaw to renig on his promise to Miranda.

Miranda flees the kingdom once she is aware that she's being set aside and all that she was raised to do was for naught. The tales takes a spinning trail through Miranda's plight as she leaves the goblins and finds the elves... or rather the elf lord finds her. Either way, this book certainly redeemed the whole saga with its climatic ending and surprising and pleasant twists.

Had the ending of this book not been so gratifying, it would have suffered a lower score. Readers may find Marak Catspaw and Nir the elf lord too irrational for their own good and that in itself causes much conflict between the two races. What also made this book enjoyable was the underlying hint of racism and prejudices. The elves think the goblins barbaric and vice versa. Both peoples saw themselves as the better race and saw all faults and weaknesses only in their enemy.

Five bright stars for closing the story of the Hollow Kingdom with a bang. Dunkle proved her mettle in this book and she may just find a niche as popular fantasy writer alongside Sharon Shinn and Robin McKinley.

I can't think of a better way to end a trilogy than this. I loved the first book of "The Hollow Kingdom", was reasonably pleased with the second, and now must say that the quality and magic of this third installment compares to the original. Similar emotions of love and despair and choice are brought forth in an imaginative and gratifying way that still has its originality--while the first book dealt with the choice between a human world and that of the fantastic, this deals with people utterly unsure of where they belong, desperate for a real choice.

Dunkle's writing is still as lush, simple, and poetic and always, still conjuring up a rather Victorian aura that nods to all the old myths and legends of "the little people". And yet this particular story has grown to something more akin to what Tolkien would have written for young girls had he ever taken such a genre. Call me crazy, but I relish the clear problems of elf society (too many authors have praised it beyond the ridiculous.) But it is nice to see a few good elves that give plausibility to the story of war and prejudice.

The feminists, however, will not be pleased. I hate to say it, but part of me loves the idea of being kidnapped by a roguish goblin to his underground kingdom, and indeed these are books about women who are pretty much at the mercy of the males. And yet... they all strike me as powerful, remarkable girls who always truly have a choice of their fates.

Wonderul storytelling to a truly romantic tale. Thank-you!

I love this series and was happy to finally get a story about the elves. I honestly think these stories should be more popular; this is one of the few series I have gone back to read more than once. I wish there were more of them.

One of my favorite books as a kid and currently rereading the series and falling in love all over again.

I love this book! It is the last in The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy and a wonderful end to the saga. As most good books, I would not mind another in the series, but this book closes up loose ends and stories which started in the first book. The actual book was in excellent condition and came when it was supposed to.
I love this series. They are such fun books.
