Avalon is on the verge of total destruction: an army of warriors, a swarm of fire dragons, and a lethal plague are all laying waste to MerlinÕs beloved land. But Merlin is nowhere to be found. Leading the fight in his place is Basil, the once tiny lizard who is now the most powerful dragon in Avalon.
But to restore peace, the mastermind behind this chaos, Doomraga, will need to be discovered and destroyed before his power grows stronger and Avalon and its inhabitants are beyond saving. For Basil to triumph, he and his friends may need to make the ultimate sacrifice.

T.A. Barron out did him self with this amazing end to a fantastic series. 
I actually went out and bought the first two books in the series, due to not having read them prior to reading the final book in the series Merlin's Dragon: Ultimate Magic. I did find that reading the other two books prior did change my initial opinion in the final book. I had a better understanding of the characters and the world that they lived in. So before picking up this book I fully encourage you to pick up a copy of the first two books in the series.

I personally don't usually read many fantasy books, so going into this one, I did have my apprehensions, but after reading Merlin's Dragon: Ultimate Magic, I am thinking I may have to pick up more fantasy books soon. It has everything that I look for in a book...action, great characters, a wonderful plot, and never-ending  adventure.The character's are complexly written, with likable and dis-likable traits. The story it self is well developed and written, with a whimsical romance to it that kept me turning pages. I kind of wish that this book hadn't been the last in the series because I would have LOVED to read more! I can't wait to see what else T.A. Barron will pull out of his sleeve... you can be assured that I will be the first in line to pick it up!
If you have the chance to, go out and pick up a copy of Merlin's Dragon: Ultimate Magic, or better yet pick up the series... You won't be disappointed.. I know I wasn't!
