I have not read the first two books in this series, but that was ok after piecing things together it was a fun read. Raggleroot is out to get Flin as he blames his family for putting him in the underworld. Parcell complicates Flin's plans left and right he wants to get some things back to the Leprechauns. With the authors plant life, like you could not fathom and all the action and humor you can not go wrong with this read. My kids even read the book and loved it.
