"The Way of the Wilderking" Review

In book three of the acclaimed Wilderking Trilogy, civilizer Aidan returns home from three years in Feechiefen Swamp to discover that a party known as the Aidanites has arisen among his fellow Corenwalders. They believe the “Wilderking Chant” makes reference to Aidan, and that he is destined to overthrow Corenwald's tyrant King Darrow. Aidan has no intention of leading any such rebellion. But when the Corenwald kingdom continues to weaken, and the enemy Pyrthens threaten to invade, it's clear the Aidanites are the only army his people have left. What soon transpires among civilizers, feechiefolk, Corenwalders, and Pyrthens alike, no reader could predict. When all is said and done, who will be the Wilderking? 

My Review: 

   As the final book of the Wilderking Trilogy, this book perfectly sums up Aidan's adventures! Jonathan Rogers used this last book to tie the strings and bring the three books into harmony. This book is completely different than the other two, and yet it is still full of adventure. Dobro is an amazing character all throughout the book and a great friend to Aidan. He lightens the mood of the story and brings fun into play! I love how this book combines excitement, sadness, and funny scenes into a novel! this is one of the special books that I have gotten to the last pages and felt very sad that the story was over. As a childhood favorite and even today, Aidan's exciting feats leave me eager for more and glad that finally the Wilderking has done his job of "living the life that unfolded before him." The best part of this book is how it ties together major characters into a wonderful history, but I won't say more or it would ruin that part for you. =) This book is one that will inspire readers with tales full of thrill and stories of how trusting in the One True God can change your life forever.
