Jason and Rachel were not born in Lyrian. They did not grow up in Lyrian. But after all of the battles and losses, the triumphs and adventures, and most of all, the friendships forged in this fantastical world, Lyrian has become home to them in a way they never could have imagined. And so, armed now with the prophecy of a dying oracle, they have gone on their separate quests;each surrounded by brave and powerful allies;knowing that the chance for success is slim. But Jason and Rachel are ready at last to become the heroes Lyrian needs, no matter the cost.

Well, I'd written up this nice, glowing review and then Goodreads ate it. And now, of course, the words appear to be gone from my head forever.

Suffice it to say that this book, this entire series, is amazing. Chasing the Prophecy is the perfect ending to this wonderful series.

If you think you don't like middle grade, give it a chance anyway. It's one of the best series, and especially the best endings, I've read in quite some time. There's a great balance of adventure, character development and growth, and sacrifice (Mull handles character death in a spectacular way.)

This is a series that will certainly be moving onto my favorites shelf.

This whole series is one of the best I've read in a long while, but the final book is exceptional. I couldn't possibly imagine a better ending than the one Mull has created here, despite the deaths of many of my favorite characters. I ended up finishing the book at work and spent about 2 hours with a tissue held to my eyes so I wouldn't scare the customers away. If I'd been at home, you can bet I'd have a full on ugly cry going.

If you don't think you like middle grade, you should give this series a chance anyway. There's a lot of action, great character development, and a magical land with its own rich history. I'll have to buy the whole series so I can put it on my favorites shelf; it's that great.
