Splinter - Joshua Winning

5 Stars!

‘All who stand against us shall perish’

The critically acclaimed Sentinel Trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion in this final instalment of the dark fantasy series.

The world is falling apart around Nicholas Hallow. Amid rumours that the Dark Prophets have returned, a deathly gloom pollutes England, unleashing a savage hoard of nightmare creatures. Fighting the tide of evil, Nicholas returns home to Cambridge, where an old ally helps him seek out the mysterious Skurkwife, who could help Nicholas stop Malika and the Prophets for good.

Meanwhile, Sam Wilkins unites the Sentinels against the forces of darkness, but with Jessica's sanity slipping, and Isabel suspicious of her shadowy past, it's a battle that could cost the Sentinels everything.

Well Joshua did it again! He writes a fantastic ending to a very exciting series! I loved book one - Sentinel, I very much liked book 2 - Ruins, but, book 3 - Splinter was just brilliant, the best one yet. It took me back to what I loved about book one. When you keep reading a book because you just HAVE to know what happens - that's a great book.

The same fantastic characters, mmm except maybe even better. No matter how much bad-ass/save-the-world-from-evil fighting they do, they are still just people. Young adults that have been selected (or thrown) into this situation. I loved their "humanness", the sarcasm, the bickering back and forth, the quirkiness, and even their desperation and wanting to give up at times (after all they are only human). But still - they save the world in the end!
"The world is dying. The Dark Prophets have returned and they are seeking to claim the world for themselves." ~ Yep, that about sums it up!
And, surprise surprise - one of my favorite characters from book two that I thought was lost forever was back!!

Joshua has a way of painting a movie in your head with his descriptions. I could see it all happening even when it got a little crazy, OK a lot crazy! I was so in the mood for this book. I had just finished watching the series "Stranger Things" on Netflix. So I was well prepared for this story.

What a thrilling series with non-stop action! I can't wait to see what Josh has in store for us next. I will be standing in line!
