The Seventh Medallion: Bartholomew the Adventurer Trilogy, Book 3 is an epic fantasy written by Tom Hoffman. Oliver, Bartholomew, and Edmund the Rabbiton have found themselves on yet another quest. This time it's at the request of Madame Beffy, Oliver’s love interest and the baker of the world’s most exquisite eclairs as far as he’s concerned. Her father, Arledge Rabbit, has been missing for over three years. He too was an adventurer and explorer who had gone off in search of a legendary city in Opar, which he believed would be a treasure trove of ancient tech. His journal was recently discovered and delivered to Beffy by a ragged prospector, who said he found it in a cave in central Opar. Clara and the treasure hunting mouse-team, Thunder and Lightning, are on their own mission: to help Thunder’s long-lost mother find the medallions that will help to save the universe.
Tom Hoffman’s epic fantasy, The Seventh Medallion: Bartholomew the Adventurer Trilogy, Book 3, is an exhilarating and rollicking adventure tale that chronicles the obstacles, perils and challenges the two sets of questers face. One group is involved in a rescue adventure, while the other is racing against time to save the universe from destruction, and the two stories merge together beautifully. While it’s obviously a reader’s option, and Hoffman includes just enough detail from the previous books in the series for stand-alone reading, I would most strongly recommend that readers new to the Bartholomew the Adventurer Trilogy read them in order. The author lovingly crafts his characters and the worlds they inhabit, and the progress each character makes throughout the trilogy is inspirational and moving. While the series is solid epic fantasy, fans of steampunk should seriously consider reading these books: there are tantalizing glimpses of ancient tech and daring adventurers and engineers who know how to make that tech work. I had a marvelous time reading The Seventh Medallion: Bartholomew the Adventurer Trilogy, Book 3. It’s most highly recommended.
