    This feels like it was originally supposed to be two books that were combined into one. It made it rather long and confusing in parts, but I liked the focus on Nightlight as he was my favorite. ...

    A wild Jack Frost finally appears! I've been waiting for the appearance of Jack Frost since I began this series, and I was not disappointed with his eventual arrival. Honestly, Jack Frost begins on a strange note. There's suddenly an established time (1933), whereas the date/year...

    I really enjoyed this series (and the movie!) and I wasn't sure there was going to be any really satisfying ending that Joyce could craft but they did. Now, I was a bit annoyed at the beginning that a) there was a giant time jump but mostly that 2) they seemed to be saying that thin...

    Even years before this book came out, when it was first announced, I knew it was going to be popular, maybe even more so than its four predecessor. Not only was it to be the final book in the Guardians series, and like most series finales, that alone created excitement and anticipation...

    Una de las principales razones por la le tengo tanto amor a este libro como a todos los de esta serie es porque AMO AMO AMO MUCHO, con todo mi ser la idea de que todo en los seres que crees durante tu infancia, estan ahí, para protegerte. Que todo lo bueno en lo que creíste durante t...

    For the final book in this series, I find myself disappointed. I feel that Joyce felt obligated to tie in to the movie adaption and was forced to create Jack Frost. Reflecting on the previous four stories, this one does not give the same emotions and feelings and it doesn?t seem like...

    Imagination, adventure and everything dreams are made of make this a fantastic tale to read again and again. The Guardians have been able to keep the evil Pitch at bay, but not defeated him completely. Jack Frost is probably suffering more than the other Guardians as he tries to com...

    Even though the book series is different from the movie, I started this series, because I saw the movie The Rise of the Guardians. When I read the fourth book, I thought the series was over, which made me so happy to discover this book! Even though the books cannot perfectly match the ...

    I'm probably partial because I saw the movie first and fell in love with that version of Jack Frost's character/backstory, so I was hoping the book would reflect that and it didn't quite meet my expectations. Still, this was a fun read and a satisfying conclusion to the series. Mr. Joy...

    I will admit that I was a little disconcerted by the start of this book, maybe its because it was such a long wait since the last one but it didn't flow well for me until it hits the part where Kathrine is telling Jack his story. BUT once I hit that part I was hooked and devouring page...

    Lovely conclusion of an overall lovely series. Magical and intriguing! Loved the characters, how they evolved, fought, cared, and loved. Will miss them for sure! Loved Jack, how he was born and how he became the Jack Frost we all love. The movie is amazing, one of my very favourites...

    When a children?s book brings you to tears, makes you giggle, & draws out the Cheshire Cat smile in you (not necessarily in that order), you should take the book home. I love this series. William Joyce takes you into the shoes of the characters even while it reads like an old ...

    I have been awaiting this book for a long time. I read the Guardians of Childhood books several years ago, and this finale was worth the wait. The story is so quirky and seemingly silly, what with space ships and Moonbots and fairies and wizards and so many other great and wonderful th...

    I feel so stupid! Here I am reading a series about mythical figures and I come across a girl who draws, writes stories, and has a giant Himalayan Snow Goose and I didn?t put together the pieces that Katherine is Mother Goose! I?ve read four books about her! I was wondering how ...

    Long Awaited Conclusion; 8/10 book I felt that this book was a good conclusion to this part of the series but it still left me a bit dissatisfied. William Joyce is, as always, inventive in his character designs and the art is beautiful that he makes. I was content with how he united...

    The final book of the Guardians series and it was the one I was patiently waiting for! We finally learn the origin of Jack Frost. And how the beloved character Nightlight became him. A lot of time has passed since the previous book. Nightlight disappeared and Jack Frost emerged and fou...

    I was really excited to find this book, because it had been a while since I had seen the movie and guess who just created a Pinterest board dedicated to Jack Frost? Anyway, right from the get-go, I loved how whimsical the writing style was. I was easily able to imagine the events of...

    Oh, this series. So, so good. I love these characters, the story, and Joyce's gorgeous prose. These books will always hold a very special place in my heart, because they helped my now-10-year-old son get through some pretty rough bedtimes when he was younger and so scared of nightmares...

    No one can weave a tale quite like William Joyce. His stories are the epitome of childhood and the joy and fear that exists in the mind of a child. William Joyce draws on the life of a child unlike any other author I have read. This whole series is a way to relive and renew the joy, wo...

    That took forever! Seriously it has been 4 years since book 4 came out and I have been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for this book! Not to mention that it too a long time for book 4 and then even longer for this book. Anyway the long wait aside (I was 13 when the last boo...

    It has been over a hundred years since the Guardians last saw Pitch, and Nightlight has finally returned - in the guise of the mischievous Jack Frost, whose plans of stopping the Nightmare King will be their only chance of finally bringing the Dark Age to an end! Joyce brings this fant...

    GOLLY, that was one heck of an ending. Was it worth the three years of waiting? Sure. If only for the constant fangirling I went through while reading this. Two small things that I wish could have been different. -There was SO MUCH EXPOSITION in this book. SO MUCH. I personal...

    Great read! Received it as a secret santa present and started reading it almost right after getting it! Was confused about the book's existence--I remember in 2012 when the movie came out and I discovered the previous 4 books (yet to read) that the movie was supposed to be Jack's book ...

    A fitting ending to a lovely series that has a timeless feel to it, despite how recently it has been written. I was a bit disappointed in the new cover art it came with that does not quite match the colors and art style of the previous four books. However, the writing style has the sam...

    I read this book in a day. Not that hard, of course, it being a children's book, but I hardly ever have the chance and focus to read a book in a day. These characters and what they represent are near and dear to my heart. It's a bittersweet conclusion (being greedy as I am and wanting ...
