Publisher's Summary

Charlie Ashanti has restored the lions to their home in the wilds of Morocco. He's been reunited with his parents in an African port town. The boy who speaks Cat is starting to believe that his adventures might be over.Not likely in a series famous for its "fast-paced cinematic action". The nefarious lion-tamer Maccomo, recently escaped from captivity, kidnaps Charlie with the intention of selling him and Rafi to the Corporacy! A full-scale chase ensues as Charlie's parents, his Venetian gondolier friend, and his ever-faithful lions pursue Maccomo's ship across the sea.
Eventually, the whole cast of the Lionboy trilogy ends up on the Caribbean island where the Corporacy is headquartered. It's up to Charlie to set things right, even at the cost of certain loyalties.

Wow. Really, just wow. I loved this trilogy. It could have tried to end after the second book, but the third really finished the story. The second book did not end as abruptly as the first, so I wasn't left desperately downloading the audiobook, but I was still hooked but the story. The reader, as always, is excellent, capturing a range of accents and characters and leaving me with a decided mental picture of everyone, down to the smallest ship's rat.
A lesson in friendship, loyalty and the importance of independant thought, this series also manages to cover forgiveness and redemtion. Whew! That's quite a bit for such a young-at-heart tale! This book rounds out the story, giving us the closure to the global tale that the personal reunion of book 2 did not. Once again, no one is quite as black/white or good/evil. Even a pretty minor character or two gets a little bit of background - just enough to let you know that there is a person under all that strange or inappropriate behavior. I recommend the whole series to anyone - a great quick read!

Oh No!

I cannot believe that this story is over! I have so enjoyed the trilogy that I sought more works by the two Zizou's immediately upon completing this book. Sadly, there are not yet more tales. I'll be the first in "line" when another tale comes out, although it will be difficult to top Charlie and his adventures :)
