Connie Lionheart is the only Universal Companion, able to communicate with all of the mythical creatures hidden in our world. She's the most important member of the secret society sworn to protect the bonds between humans and creatures. But the shape-shifter Kullervo wants to use her power to wipe out humanity. Connie must stop him, but how? There are no simple answers in the exciting conclusion to this award-winning eco-fantasy series by a Nestlé Prize-winning author.

"Come to the mark. Come to me. You know you must. Connie surfaced from sleep, struggling like a swimmer caught in weeds, thrashing to reach air. When she woke, she found the bedclothes twisted around her. She threw them off and sat up to gulp some water from the glass on her bedside table, her handshaking slightly. The voice had crept into her dreams again: the voice of Kullervo, the shape-shifter, her enemy--and her companion creature. He said the same thing each time, repeating the message again and again so that she could hear its echo during the daylight hours as well as in the stillness of the night. She knew where he wanted her to go: he wanted her to meet him at the mark he had made deep in her mind, the breach in the wall between her and his dark presence. But she would not give in to him."

Nice wrap up to the series, and everything turns out right in the end. Part of me finds these books hilarious - in that it's always the young ones who figure things out, with so little experience, that others that came before them could not.

For a third out of four book sieries it seems there is still to much to figure out but don't worrie this book answers atleast half of them but don't quite now the last one is soo much better than the rest. Cheers.

Super Awesome Book! Definitely the best of the series! But sadly, I feel as though Julia Golding's one of those authors whose highly under rated. I haven't talked to many people who have read her books and she is my absoulute favorite author. Sigh.
