Tristan Strong Keeps Punching (Tristan Strong, Book 3)

About the Book:

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents the finale of Kwame Mbalia’s trilogy, in which Tristan Strong faces off with his archenemy, King Cotton, once and for all.

After reuniting with Ayanna, who is now in his world, Tristan travels up the Mississippi in pursuit of his archenemy, King Cotton. Along the way they encounter new haints who are dead set on preventing their progress north to Tristan’s hometown of Chicago. It’s going to take many Alkean friends, including the gods themselves, the black flames of the afokena gloves, and all of Tristan’s inner strength to deliver justice once and for all.

Shocking twists, glorious triumphs, and a cast of unforgettable characters make this series conclusion as satisfying as it is entertaining.



This book was an epic conclusion to the Tristan Strong series. Mbalia did an excellent job with this book.

The plot was much better in this book, and I loved how it kept the core themes while making them better. The world-building in this book as usual was just perfect. I loved that the book mixed mythology and history, two of my favorite things.

The characters were once again amazing. I learnt more about Ayanna, which I loved. Tristan was still a strong and relatable MC, however Gum Baby is also still my favorite. The other characters in this book also are relatable and they grow on you.

Overall, I loved this book. I believe that young children will love this series and libraries should get these books.
