Obert Skye is one of my favorite authors and I've enjoyed his Wizard for Hire trilogy. This series has been a lot of fun with lots of layers to it also.
With this, the third and final installment of the series, we pick up right where we left off from the ending of the previous book and it flows well with the transition into this book. There have been a few changes since the last book like happens with time passing and Ozzy living with Sigi, Rin's (the Wizard) daughter, and Sigi's mom, Patti while Rin has disappeared - gone off searching for Ozzy's parents and such.
During this part of the series, we discover some truths that aren't particularly fun about Ozzy and his situation and his parents, also about Rin, his past and a bit more explanation about him and things. There is also still Ray chasing after Ozzy for the magical serum that can be used to mind-control and discipline others to do what you want them to do and Ozzy discovering more about his powers and abilities while trying to wrap his mind around and understand magic as well as deciding how he feels about it and if he believes in it or not.
There are some new characters and friends of Rin introduced briefly into the story that plays an important part at the end of the story when everything plays out at the famous comic con place they go to when they find themselves in need of help from said friends, and themselves in dealing with Ray and his henchmen.
Clark is still one of my favorite characters in the book, he's a very quirky and interesting little metal bird that makes me wish I had one of my very own and he helps and accompanies them on their journeys throughout the story.
Things resolve themselves and we find the answers to Ozzy's questions about his parents, where they are, what happened, himself, his powers and other things as well throughout this book. There's a lot of things that happen and a lot of information we find out along with Ozzy in this conclusion to the series that wraps everything up nicely.
It touches and talks a bit of mental illness with the characters, grief and about the importance of family, friends, and relationships as well as figuring out things for yourself and believing in yourself and in magic that can be found all around you. There were a bit more layers and depth to this book than I think there was in the previous ones and it's still a lot of fun and a great read that you don't want to miss out on so make sure to preorder this book to find out the exciting conclusion to this awesome series.
Also if you haven't read this series, you really should go read it, it's wonderful, uplifting and fun.

Really enjoyed this story aimed at the 8 to 12 year old set. It was fast moving and funny. I always recommend this one for a middle schooler looking to branch out after Harry Potter.
