The young wizard Jinx concludes his suspenseful and dryly humorous adventures in the magical forest of the Urwald with this third installment in the series that ALA Booklist says "deserves a permanent place in the children's fantasy pantheon, with Narnia and Earthsea" (Jinx's Magic, starred review). This action-packed conclusion is perfect for readers of fantasy adventure series such as Septimus Heap, the Sisters Grimm, and Fablehaven.

The forest is under attack and its magic is fading. Can Jinx summon enough of his magic--the bright fire within him--to rescue Simon, defeat the Bonemaster, unite the Urwald, and fight off the invaders? He is the Urwald's only hope. . . .

Back cover copy

Sometimes you have to step off the path to get where you're going. In the Urwald, that could lead to being eaten. But Jinx has to do something, and fast: the forest is under attack, and its magic is fading.

Three kings have claimed the Urwald's land. Their armies are closing in on the forest's borders. Jinx knows the Urwald belongs to no one but itself: the people, trees, and monsters who inhabit it. Can he convince all of them to work together with the wizards and witches to save their homeland?

Jinx also needs to save Simon, and so must travel into the dangerous icy depths beneath the Glass Mountains until he reaches the nadir of things--a spot as perilous as it is powerful. Only if Jinx can summon enough of his magic--the bright fire within him--will he be able to rescue Simon, defeat the Bonemaster, unite the Urwald, and fight off the invaders. He is the Urwald's only hope.

In this action-packed conclusion to the acclaimed Jinx trilogy, Sage Blackwood spins an epic tale about good and evil, fire and ice, magic and knowledge, and becoming who you are meant to be.

Review quote

"Blackwood offers a story of enchanting texture and depth, and series fans will be elated to have another outing with the sweetly sardonic hero, whose conscience is almost as troublesome as his grasp of spells. Fans of Cornelia Funke should add this to their stacks."--ALA Booklist
