"The opposite of war isn't peace -- it's creation."
Through three books, OutCast's youthful protagonist Timothy has grown up quite a bit. He has been taken away from his home, lost loved ones, and fought in battles of epic proportions. In this, the final book of the OutCast quartet, his character is tested when the Wurms come to Arcanum to seek revenge.
I don't want to give away the ending entirely, of course, but I do want to say it was quite impressive. Could there be more OutCast books in the future? You'll have to read Wurm War to find out.
If not for OutCast, though, I do hope that Golden and Sniegoski team up for another children's series. They are a fantastic collaborative team, having worked together for years on comics and horror / dark fantasy novels for adults. Thanks to OutCast, I can finally recommend their works to younger kids and to families. OutCast will spark the imagination of its readers, igniting a special kind of literary magic.
