    1. Like the rest of the Seventh Tower series, this is good, quick-paced fun. It's aimed at a younger reading level than anything else I've read by Garth Nix, so I read the whole book in something like forty minutes, but that's kind of nice, sometimes.It's a bit of a rushed book, though, I think. Tal and Milla are apart for the whole book, so the fun of their interactions is out, and I felt like it totally sped through some really interesting parts. I'm not entirely pleased with Tal and Milla both b [...]


    2. Garth Nix really hit his stride with the last book, ABOVE THE VEIL, and the strong storytelling of strongly drawn characters in a strongly built world continued in book #5, INTO BATTLE I'm sincerely going to miss this story when it ends in #6, THE VIOLET KEYSTONEO BATTLE brings the conflict to a head: Milla must lead her Icecarl warriors on a siege of the Castle to defeat the Chosen and their Spiritshadows and to once and for all finish a war started thousands of years ago while Tal must find a [...]


    3. شخصیت‌ها میزانی در تصمیم‌گیری‌ها پختگی بیشتری به خرج دادن و کفرم رو در نیاوردن!


    4. Into Battle: Or, To Be ContinuedThe 5th book is the The Seventh Tower series is just a set-up novel that furthers the plot. Nothing more, nothing less. Tal continues his journey in the Aenir with Adras while Milla continues her journey in the Castle with Odris. They are both gearing up for the big battle and continuing on the story. Just lots of plot, plot, plot, not a lot of thought, thought, thought. Everything moves too fast to stop in think what is actually going on.The world is so confusing [...]


    5. This book was a bit better, quicker action. But what do I know? I read the previous book intermittently over about two years. Yikes. I'm determined to finish this last book of the series. I find the basic storyline interesting enough, but maybe there is something about the execution that doesn't grab me. I'm looking forward to seeing Tal defeat Sushin and rescuing his father.


    6. One of the best books in the series. The right amount of action, revelations and shocking twists.This review and others in the series are available at ReadingOverTheShoulder


    7. I was waiting for this series to up its game and it left it rather later and that's good because this book was stunning. With Milla massing her forces of Icecarl to attack the Castle and the Chosen Tal enters the Aenir to find the Empress and use the Violet Keystone to free Rerem and Lokar only for things to really not be as they seem. Firstly fuck that cliffhanger. I would try to keep the language at a minimum but holy shit that was cruel. Garth Nix has done it before brilliantly done cliffhang [...]


    8. One of the elements of writing in this genre that Nix is particularly gifted at is creating original fantasies and worlds. This series is no exception. However, in comparison to some of his other works, especially The Abhorsen Trilogy, the exploration of this world and the characters within is weak at best. The story is interesting because Nix presents the audience with a new mythology, but he rushes through the plot, circumnavigating what could be some really amazing explorations of the world h [...]


    9. Younger me: 5 starsAdult me: 5 stars*For the first book in a "child/teen/middlegrade/nostalgic" book, I am going with the rating younger me would have gone with, then if I read on in the series, I will rate the books what adult me believes it should be rated. If the book is a stand alone, I will go with whatever rating I feel most comfortable giving the book. Please note, I do not really think books should have an age limit. People should read what they want to regardless of the intended age gro [...]


    10. Garth Nix is such a surprising author. I pride myself (sometimes a little too much) on my ability to predict where a plotline is heading or who will die and who will survive in a fictional world, but Nix just throws my radar off. He has no qualms about making the journey this series takes you on as fantastic as possible.This novel out of the series was a change from the others, as it is the first where Tal and Milla operate completely separate from each other for the entire book. I enjoyed this [...]


    11. I really enjoyed this series of Science Fiction books by Garth Nix, which are aimed at a juvenile/young adult audience. The author does a good job of creating new, unfamiliar but believable societies, including the privileged Castle dwellers known as the Chosen and the seemingly more primitive and clan-oriented Icecarls who live out in the frozen wilds of the Dark World. Throw in the magical world of Aenir from which Shadowguards and Spiritshadows are bound (enslaved?) to Chosen at age 13 1/2, a [...]


    12. This was one of my favorite book series when I was younger, and it introduced me to fan fiction. It is also one of my (nearly) complete series. The concept of a world without the sun is very interesting and refreshing. The main characters act as they, in their established backgrounds/societies, should. They also have very good character development. Though a little dark for a children's/middle grade book series, the vocabulary used and the qualities of the characters are still appropriate. The p [...]


    13. Wow this series just gets better and better. Nix is a master at world building and in these books he creates not just one but TWO amazingly rich and detailed worlds. The characters are well fleshed out and you actually find yourself rooting for them. I particularly liked the way in which each chapter was divided into the POV of either Tal or Milla and each new chapter ended on a cliffhanger. This brought a lot of suspense to the book and I found myself really wanting to read on and get to each r [...]


    14. Many of my questions from my review of the fourth book were answered in this book, which was very nice since they were quite a surprise to me. Milla and Tal are completely apart in this book. Milla is back with the icecarls which was interesting even though the Crones kind of creeped me out. Tal was off trying to meet with the empress and when he finally does she's a drunk lady. It was fun to see Tal come to the realization that all his prejudices and beliefs were based on lies and see him chang [...]


    15. Looks like Gabrielle from Xena Warrior Princess on the old cover. Or so I thought when I first read this. Anyway, this one was a little different as we had Tal and Milla deal with stuff separately. Back home, Milla is gathering everyone who can help with the fight against their enemy. Another favorite of mine that shows how awesome Milla was. Or so I remembered. She's still one of my favorite book characters. Liked the back and forth between the two. You get an idea on what's their situation and [...]


    16. Into Battle is the 5th book in the Seventh Tower saga. This book is a great book for upper elementary age students through adult. In this book Tal and Milla work separately in the different worlds as war fastly approaches. Mila and the icecards prepare to assault the Castle to help preserve their world and Tal and Underfold repels struggle for freedom and to find the answers of the weekend Veil. However sinister forces of evil begins to reveal itself as in works to unleash ultimate destruction.


    17. Milla leads the Icecarls as the enter the castle trying to take it over. She is accompanied by Crone Malen, the youngest of the Crones, Odris, the former Storm Shepherd, who is her Spirit Shadow, and wears the Talon of Danir on one hand. Tal, and Adras, the other former Storm Shepherd go to Aenir the land of spirit and magic to tell the Empress what is going on and get her help. They battle fierce beasts and find that the Empress is not what he thought she would be. He learns that his Sunstone i [...]


    18. Another quick read. I am trying to place what the spiritual/metaphysical practices of the Icecarls remind me of I think it is the cult-classic Galaxy Quest, and the mak'tar chant of strength (Larak tarath, larak tarath). Anyway, it is almost funny, and yet somehow fits that a teenage girl is able to put herself in weird trances all the time, and now is leading an army (that's not a spoiler, it is more or less on the cover.)So while I deal with that, I'm still enjoying the occasional ah-ha moment [...]


    19. Tal and Milla are back and its better than ever Milla Talon-Hand is the leader of the resistence and tal is being called Emperor by tha empress and he weilds one of the two, the one and only 1/2 Violet Keystone and has a powerful spiritshadow and is helping the reisistence, I like this book becauese you never know what is going to happen next and Tal is well a very powerfull mage and deosnt know it.


    20. I actually really liked this one. It was pretty exciting and engaging, and I'm really liking the way the plot is unfolding. And the character growth, while perhaps not subtle, is done pretty well. I actually quite like both Tal and Milla now, whereas I didn't overly care for them at the beginning of the series. Heck, even their Spiritshadows are maturing.My favorite scene is when Tal finally confronts the Empress. Literally could not put the book down at that part.


    21. Milla is now the leader of the Icecarl invasion of the castle. They are coming to set things right, and make sure the shadows don't take over their world. Tal has figured out what he has to do but he is plagued by guilt of killing two people, and he still has to rescue his mother and brother. Can the two of them meet up, rescue their world, and overcome their differences that seem so much larger now that they have had to go their separate ways.


    22. This book was unlike all of the others in the series. It made you sit on the edge of your seat until you realized that you finished it. Garth Nix does something a little bit different from the other books in this book. Tal and Milla do not meet each other at all during this book. Also, it ended with the best cliffhanger i have read in while. I can't wait to read the next book.


    23. I didn't think I would like the series but I did. It was amazing and kept my thinking for a long time even after I put down the book to sleep. It was so good that I dreamy about it and put myself in the feet of the protagonist's. :DI apologize if this review isn't all that good, I read the books a while ago and have only just realised I hadn't rated and added this book to my Shelf.


    24. I think this book is pretty good it got me on the edge of my seat to read the last book to see what happens and it is really cool because they all find each other and it is kind of gory in it because their is a lot of killing in it because they are in war and when Tal opened the door there was a pile of dead bodies.


    25. I liked this book too. Especially when Tal went into Aenir and found the Empress and realized she's not even as cool as I thought a friggin' EMPRESS would be! I mean, come on! She REALLY let herself go, I'm not gonna liewell anyway, I'm glad Tal's wacko great uncle ain't dead, cuz that would be a darndest shame


    26. Into Battle, book five of The Seventh Towerseries is a return to form. For whatever reason I think the previous book Above the Veil was a bit weaker than other installments. We are definitely heading towards the endgame here. Milla's plot line moves forward with the Icecarl attack on the Castle, but it's Tal's that proves more interesting as he uncovers some dangerous secrets


    27. the pace picks back up in this exciting addition to the seventh tower series. the plot is split in-between the two main characters making it a bit annoying as the author has a tendency to place one the main characters into a cliffhanger then go back to the other with the start of the next chapter.


    28. Wow. Another GREAT addition to this series! I love it! There were so many new twists that I NEVER ever saw coming! I can't wait until I get a chance to read the last one!I'm 15, and I recommend this series.
