I love The Takers because it’s the first book and it started Oz on his journey, but it in a lot of ways, getting a great review for the follow-up books makes me feel much better. You never know if you’re going to piss off your readers and lose them for good. This one is for the third book in the series, The Pure.
4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite of the Oz Chronicles so far, March 31, 2009Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)This review is from: The Pure: Book Three of the Oz Chronicles (Paperback)
I didn’t think Ridley would top THE TAKERS because the first book of the Oz Chronicles is so wonderful, but I must say THE PURE is my favorite so far. Most of the action concerning Oz takes place in the mind, and even the struggles of the other characters are emotional more than physical (though there is plenty of action to keep teen readers turning pages). I’m a sucker for redemption stories, and THE PURE certainly is that. I hope Ridley keeps going with this theme in future installments. My only real disappointment was finding out the Oz Chronicles is not a trilogy, which I didn’t realize until I encountered the cliffhanger on the last page! Then again, it’s good to know there’s more to come.
