    Emma has ties to this world she has discovered that she cannot understand, and when she thinks she begins to unravel it, she's still as lost. The last book in The Watcher's Quest series, and I'd have to say the most worthwhile out of the series. It does not leave too much to be disappointed in (depending on you level of expectation), one of the exceptions being the fact that it is the last book.
    Admiring the good points in the novel, it has much action, more drama, memorable characters that wiggle their way into your heart-or at least part...maybe a temporary location-, and many awakening surprises to keep you pleasantly shocked. The first time I read it I was terribly disheartened at the fact that I had reached the end of Emma and all the other characters riveting yet tumultuous lives, but as I finished it again, not as impressed but still content and appreciative of the ride it gave me, I have accepted the end as complete, and can now leave it happily. Having to admit the drawbacks to this novel, Emma's constant argumentation with Tom, not to exclude the others she fights with, and inability to see the truth at times, is becoming old, very fast. And I have to admit, when Emma's character slowly maddened me, it was Tom's character that I kept reading for, although he was sometimes horribly such a flat character. It may not have been the most entrancingly written novel, or with superb character development, however I endured through the difficulties with it, and could still enjoy the novel.
    Worth to some by starting from the beginning, though the first book, personally, failed to compare to the next two, a delightful, short read, and original environment and characters, The Finder has left me satisfied, and glad after years to become reacquainted with it and its characters.

    Review time:
    Last book in the trilogy of The Watcher’s Quest by Margaret Buffie. “The Finder.”
    Emma is forced to enter a secret, untouched world, or lose the chance to visit it ever. And by entering, she has unwittingly become a player in The Game; war games between two or more players for a prize, usually the riches and peoples of a world. But Emma is convinced it is a Quest, to find the missing elemental power wands that balance her new world. With new and old friends by her side, and death and betrayal on the horizon, can Emma become the leader of this new world, if it means giving up everything she’s ever loved?
    Great ending to the trilogy. It wraps everything up, ties off loose ends, yet is ambitious enough to let the reader imagine more. We finally learn the truth about Emma and her family. She learns deep truths about her friends, and finally, finally gets to be with the one she loves. This book was captivating and I could not stop reading it. I literally brought it with me everywhere, anywhere where I thought I could sneak a couple pages... or chapters!
    Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Another book in the Watcher trilogy. I found these books really entertaining, it combines people's love of games with a whole new idea for an alternate universe. Not only does it contain the fantasy aspect but also the danger of a thriller as Emma must face many challenges before she can live a normal life.
