Ce troisième volume est mieux construit que le deuxième, on retrouve l’amusement et la dynamique du premier. L’inspiration thématique — le monde de Narnia — est moins présente dans ce volume, qui met en avant les royaumes zokus.

C’est agréable à lire, les personnages principaux sont toujours aussi attachants, et comme on a depuis longtemps renoncé à dénouer les enchevêtrements tarabiscotés des intrigues, on peut se concentrer sur le présent sans trop se soucier du pourquoi des choses. Ce qui importe alors est de voir comment les personnages réagissent, et non pas comment ils construisent.

La fin hésite entre une conclusion à la Scoubidou et une morale d’anime japonais sans queue ni tête. Mais au point où on en est, cela importe peu. Tout à été dit, les héros sont saufs, et on peut tranquillement passer à une autre histoire. ( )

He interrupted himself and stamped his foot on the ground:

"You confounded Lupin! Will you never change, will you always remain hateful and cynical to the last moment of your existence? Be serious, hang it all! The time has come, now or never, to be serious!"

—Maurice Leblanc, 813
Imagining the end of things, when you are a child, is perhaps impossible. The thin child, despite the war that was raging, was more afraid of eternal boredom, of doing nothing that mattered, of day after day of going nowhere, than she was of death or the end of things.

—A. S. Byatt, Ragnarok, The End of the Gods
Seaton did grin then. "Well, you've always known that making things bigger and better is the fondest thing I am of."
