'Cottonmouth and the End' concludes the series by C. S. Fritz. I wasn't really a huge fan of the first two volumes, but I did like this one a little more.

The book begins by discussing why some folks are afraid of the dark. This is because when we last saw Frederick Cottonmouth, he was stuck in the dark. He was on his way to deliver a black egg for Tug and ran into the kind of trouble that ended the last book on a cliffhanger. With the return of an old enemy and some old friends, can he get out of the fix and continue on the mission he was given?

I still think it should have been maybe two books or one larger book, but this book concludes things in a lot more satisfying way. I liked the way the black and white space was used during the story to show the battle between light and darkness. I think the bad guy characters are drawn in a way that little ones might find them scary. The message in this book is closer to what I thought the whole series might have been. Perhaps if I'd read the whole thing in one sitting, I might have been kinder to the earlier books, but I wanted to review them as a reader might: one at a time.

I received a review copy of this ebook from David C. Cook and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
