J. Scott Savage continues his Farworld series with Air Keep. Those familiar with the series get to jump right in and follow Kyja and Marcus on more exciting adventures. Savage has a short summary of the previous two books which are clearly marked so readers anxious to get started and pick up the story where book two ended know right where to go. If you have not picked up the previous books in the series, it is advisable to begin at the beginning.
Air Keep takes on a slightly different timeline than either of the previous books thus keeping readers unsure of events. Many of the interesting characters from previous books resurface here. There are also some new ones. Some of the most enjoyable segments of the book happen when Marcus and Kyja find themselves back on Earth. Fun characters and events always seem to follow this relocation. Many clues and hints are dropped about the loyalties of various characters, but readers are still left unsure about whom they should trust.
As the final installment of the series has not yet been published, it should be noted that a great many questions are left unanswered and the conclusion of Air Keep does little to quell the curiosities. Indeed, it might even be fair to say the book creates even more uncertainties. Enjoy all Farworld has to offer, but be prepared for a bit of cliff hanging at the end.
