    Finally done with this series!Honestly, I'm a bit disappointed. The whole series seems so rushed. There could have been a lot more world-building for a five-book series. The main characters are somewhat good, a bit shabby, not too great. They are a bit mediocre for me. And the main villain was too petty! A villain who demands all that he wants, may it be a girl, a tower with a TV room and a villain who just wants to sit on his throne just to spit...

    I literally finished the 4th book 5 minutes ago and it was so good. I expect better from the 5th even though it would be hard to top. #best series ever
  • Stephanie
    This was a big ball of incredibly anticlimactic scenes
  • Nina van der Kooij
    I'm having a bit of mixed feelings about this. It was nice, and I liked the ending, but it was by no means an epic conclusion. I enjoyed watching the characters develop. The plot was alright, but it was nothing great. I'm not sure how I feel about the villain. There were times I was laughing, but when it really came to it, it was difficult to take him seriously. Maybe it's because it's a MG book, but the villain kind of disappointed me. There was...

    Please bring Aaron back, like the way he was before. Not like creepily changed or anything. The other books were really good and I hope this one is good too.
  • Vanessa
    Yeah, no.This series started out pretty mediocre, but I saw potential, so I continued to read it. At first I thought it would pay off, because I genuinly enjoyed the second and third book... but then the last one happened, which felt like the authors just wanted to be done with it and wrap the story up. There was still a little bit of potential left for this one, so I was crossing my fingers while simultaneously lowering my expectations. And I wa...

    This book didn't blow my mind or anything, but it was a good ending to the series and I'd recommend it to young fantasy readers :)

    Copy provided by the publisher.Call and his friends have narrowly escaped the evil Alex, who was sucked into Chaos, and after an unsuccessful attempt to bring his friend Aaron back from the dead, Aaron's spirit is living in Call's body and talking to him. This is problematic as the new school year starts and Call starts to have romantic feelings for Tamara, who seems to share them! Call is being given a hard time at school by people who think he ...

    So, I never LOVED this series but I liked it for what it was: a short, middle grade series written by two good authors. I found the characters relatable and the storyline engaging, even though nothing was explored very deeply. Again this was understandable for the type of series it is. I WAS pretty disappointed with this final (?) installment, though. I felt like the ending was a total copout. We find out Constantine Madden, the big bad, actually...
  • Daniel Shellenbarger
    The Golden Tower is a fun, often-humorous, and fitting conclusion to the best Harry Potter rip-off yet. Honestly, I think that's pretty much all that needs to be said. Particularly as my librarian sister would kill me if I spoiled it :). I'll just say it picks up just after the previous book and has young chaos mage Callum Hunt coming to terms with the fallout from the previous book's dramatic confrontation, his powers, his past as the inheritor ...

    Here's the end of another series. I was eagerly waiting for this one. Good conclusion to an interesting and magical series. The only negative thing about this ending is that it seemed a bit rushed, something that is characteristic of all the series. It's something that can be positive if you like easy and quick reads, or negative if you prefer more detailed world building.Still, a well built plot and characters development. Characters that were m...

    “Златната кула” е петата и последна книга от поредицата “Магистериум” на Холи Блек и Касандра Клеър, четиво, идеално за феновете на Хари Потър и Пърси Джаксън, но със свой собствен чар. Романът вече излезе на английски и тия дни го чакаме и на бъ...

    I liked it. Good ending to the series.

    Well that's that then. Another series down. I have to say, the ending seemed a bit too easy but then, it is a YA and I have to remind myself of that sometimes.
  • bookishthingsandme
    My heart. So pure. 😭I’m sad this series is over, but it had an amazing ending and my heart just couldn’t take it.
  • Tabby
    After all the build up that's it?
