    The Order of the Forge #3is an entertaining conclusion to the series but makes me feel as if so much potential was left on the table just to wrap up the story arc. There's plenty of intense action, the best in the series, and it's good to see every character use their abilities in different ways. The character development is relativelylimited outside of George and Kate's wonderful interactions. However, there are still unanswered questionsabout whatset all these events in motion that I hope there's another series that will delve into this fascinating world and characters. Read Full Review

    While I have a certain love for historical fiction, The Order of the Forge is pretty much a whole lot of silly material with these well known historical people. Which is all well and good and I can certainly enjoy it in that way, with the supernatural aspect and the kind of swashbuckling style about it. There's not a lot of depth to be had and you can pick out the familiar tropes easily enough, but if you can connect with the approach it wants to use, it's just a blast to go through and enjoy in a popcorn sort of way. Re-imagining Washington and the others in this form to deal with the darker things of the world, while playing to some real world events (and some real world myths), and in its own strange way it manages to come together, even if it feels a bit rushed here to get to that point. Goofy historical fiction is certainly a thing. Read Full Review

    With the help of Paul Revere and Ben Franklin, who catch up to the rest of the gang, they make short work of Hammond and his lackey before escaping the crumbling cave. Once free, they realize their powers are a gift and call themselves The Order of the Forge after the Viking ship they just destroyed. And then" the end. There are hints that Hammond survived, so another series is not out of the question, but please just. No. A lot of interesting opportunities were squandered in this series and if, for some reason, someone decides to greenlight a second series, I really hope they make more interesting use of the supernatural.
