The Final Kingdom is the fifth and final volume in Michael Northrop’s Tombquest series. In this book, the action moves from Egypt, to the afterlife, to New York City as Alex, Ren, and the rest of their group try to recover the Lost Spells to close the doorway between the lands of the living and the dead.

This book brought the series’ story arc to a satisfying conclusion. I gave The Final Kingdom five stars on Goodreads. I recommend this series to everyone who likes reading Middle Grade stories, regardless of age.
