Comments The Lightning Key

  • Sierra

    This story delighted me. I loved the whole thing, and the ending was just perfect. Beginning this series, I was unsure whether it was going to be satisfying or if it would spiral off down the stairs of mediocrity, but I have been delighted. Each sequel, contrary to the norm, only seems to improve. Every character adds a different twist to the tale, and my favorite twist in this book was the Baltinglass of Araby. I enjoyed his ventures in the previous books, but he took on a larger role in this i [...]

    Tigers, and Angels, and Lightning, OH MY! Jon Berkeley has an amazing imagination (yeah, maybe a little demented but fun.)The Lightning Key, the third in The Wednesday Tales series was a fun read.I have enjoyed this dark series, about a young boy, Miles who in previous books was orphaned, on the streets, in a circus, befriended a tiger, and adopted an angel for a sister (yes a real angel.) This one wasn't quite as scary, which I liked. Probably for the 9+ crowd. Many crazy things have happened i [...]

    3.75*Enjoyable middle grade series I missed when it was first published. Really liked the main character, Miles, and especially loved the supporting character of Baltinglass. Some of his dialogue was simply priceless. Recommended series.

The adventure begins with the help of his Song Angel friend Little, they are joined by a blind explorer, Baltinglass of Araby. The discovery that the Great Cortado and Doctor Tau-Tau are working together to keep the egg away from Miles and to learn the secrets of controlling the [...]


  • Claire

    A wonderful unexpected and delightful conclusion to The Wednesday Tales. To my mind this is excellent childrens' literature. I am so happy to read a book that can be read on multiple levels. For the fast and furious or slow and reluctant reader. This can be read on the surface as a fantastical adventure- monsters, villains, deserts, buffoons, wise fools, flying machines and grand friendships and mysterious alliances. For the discerning child who wants depth and complexity Miles struggles with gr [...]


  • Denise Valtr

    It was good. It showed if you never stop doing something you can accomplish it.


  • Karen

    I would've given the first half to two-thirds of this book a 2.5 if I could, because I found the non-stop run-ins and re-run-ins with Cortado and Tau-Tau tiring and implausible (e.g. the way Captain Tripoli handles "imprisoning" the villain and accomplice is just so obviously faulty and doomed that it ends up feeling, by accident, like the ineffective measures taken in the Lemony Snickets books to protect the Baudelaire children), and, also, because the introduction of one portion of the storyli [...]


  • Emily

    I loved the first book of this series. I found it to be highly imaginative and full of remarkable characters. Sadly, the story just didn't stick in my memory long enough. Each book was spaced out about 2 years and I managed to forget a lot of the details in that time span. Each of the books was entertaining, but seemed to be off-kilter when compared to the mood of the one that preceded it. It was true with this one as well. The trek of Miles, Little and Batinglass of Araby through the desert was [...]

    A wonderful unexpected and delightful conclusion to The Wednesday Tales. I am happy to read a book that can be read on multiple levels. For the fast and furious or slow and reluctant reader. This can be read on the surface as a fantastical adventure- monsters, villains, deserts, buffoons, wise fools, flying machines and grand friendships and mysterious alliances.

  • Evelyn

    While I did not love this book as much as the first, it was very good. I've been looking for it ever since I finished The Tiger's Egg probably over a year agowell. Something I like about this book better than the first is how there are fewer random "episodes" that don't contribute to the main storyline as much as they could. The prose didn't feel as noticeably flowy as before, which could be both good and bad. I felt that there was a lack of atmosphere. But something I liked very much: how the R [...]


  • Reita

    This is an advanced copy I'm reading. I have not read the first 2 books in the series but this book can stand alone. The main character is only 12. Of course there is fantasy and odd things happening in the story but it seems too juvenile for me. When I'm finished I may think otherwise.I've finished it and I almost didn't. By the last third of the book, it held my interest to the point that I had to finish it to find out what happened to the characters. I'm going to read the first book in the se [...]

  • Hannah Givens

    A fantastic trilogy with all the things I love about kidlit. Emotional truth and a magnificent plot that runs all around the world to strange locations full of odd, unforgettable people. It's in the vein of Lemony Snicket or Leven Thumps, but it's completely creative -- tigers, angels, eggs, zeppelins -- not quite like anything else. I want more by this author.


  • Alyssa

    this book was the perfect ending to this trilogy. it explains everything and makes you so happy but scared and excited but still like you can never put it down or you'll die! this book was amazing and had everything it needed and set everything straight as it should have. this is a trilogy i recommend to all!


  • Dallas

    It was a good romp. I read book one, skipped book two, then read book three. Book one was recommended to me by my daughter. I've been on a youth reading tip of late—nice way to keep up on what my kids' are into.


  • Sirona Leopold Montenegro Valverde

    It's unfortunate when you don't know how to start a review whith three beers in your system! Then again, it may as well be that I just can't think of a stretched out way of saying that the book series you cared so much about seeing it unfold has become unpleasantly generic.


  • Katie

    The characters in The Wednesday Tales are some of my most favorite! Esp. Baltinglass of Araby. I am having a blast reading this third installment, although, I regret it will be the last of the series :(


  • Tjala

    certainly not the best ib the series but it was a good conclusioin and i enjoyed it when i finally got into it!!i love baltinglas as a character hes really well presented and very likeable to the audience!


  • Christina

    cute story about an orphan Miles who is searching for this family who, he just found out exists


  • Annika

    It was a good end to the series. I hope that there is another book though. It made me sad that it was over.


  • Holyn

    This is my favorite in the Wednesday Tales trilogy. All my favorite characters returned (with some surprises) and the adventures are even more exciting than in the first two books.


  • Amanda

    Gets back to the feeling of the first after the more serious tone of the second in the series. Baltinglass of Araby just MAKES this book for me. He's a live wire and a fun guy to have around.


  • Fiona

    Rating: 4.25I think the ending seemed kind of rushed, but the book was a lot better than I expected (and Baltinglass is a hilarious character).


  • Janet

    third book of palace of laughter series!! Its really good but sad at the end :(


  • Beth

    Satisfy conclusion for the series. I think this one is my favorite. I knew the characters and really enjoyed the journey they took to reach the end.


  • Aubrey Hinchman

    Oh Miles Wednesday, how I loved reading your book!!!!!!! It was perfect, I loved it.


  • Saskia

    .


  • Nana

    This book was pretty interesting--and weirdbut I liked it anyway. I don't think there's any point reading the first two books now, though
