Chizmar (Gwendy’s Magic Feather) and King reunite to close out the “Button Box” trilogy in epic fashion. Gwendy Peterson has been a bestselling novelist, a U.S. senator, and a keeper of the button box, an innocent-looking device with the power to grant wishes and destroy universes. As its most morally steadfast guardian, Gwendy is given the unenviable task to make sure the box can never fall into evil hands. She takes a manned space flight where she can permanently dispose of the box, but those who want to use its destructive power will not give up so easily.
VERDICT The final part of this trilogy wraps up the intriguing character arc of Gwendy, a character brought to life by Chizmar’s and King’s words, as well as the voice talents of Marin Ireland. Fans of King’s “Dark Tower” series will recognize the occasional nods to the mythos, but readers who have never read the books will still be drawn into this story, where the tension comes from Gwendy trying to stay ahead of those after the box and her own deteriorating condition.
