Path of Beasts by Lian Tanner

I listened to the audio version of Path of Beasts by Lian Tanner, third book in the Keepers series.

Goldie and Toadspit have returned to Jewel, but there they find a city at war -- the Fugleman, the Blessed Guardians, and a troop of mercenaries menace the city. Not only are Goldie and Toadspit merely two children facing down an army, but the Museum of Thieves is also being threatened, and if it is destroyed, plague and war will completely engulf Jewel. Their only hope may be the mysterious Beast Road, from which nobody has returned in living memory.

I found this a strong conclusion to an enjoyable series. In particular, I liked the character development of several secondary characters, such as the captain of the mercenaries, and Pounce. As with the first two books, the audiobook narration was excellent and contributed to my enjoyment of the story. Readers who have enjoyed the first two books in this series will certainly not want to miss this one.

(Reviewed from an audiobook borrowed through my library system.)
