Editorial Reviews

About the Author

D.J. MacHale is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Pendragon series and the Morpheus Road series. He has written, directed and produced many television series and movies for young people that have been seen on Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, HBO, Showtime, PBS, Discovery Kids, and the broadcast networks. D.J. lives with his family in Southern California.

From AudioFile

D.J. MacHale ratchets up the tension in Book Seven of the addictive Pendragon series, and narrator William Dufris keeps perfect pace with the drama. Hero Bobby Pendragon is dropped into Quillan, a territory where games have deadly consequences. Dufris continues his solid voicings of the bemused, desperate, and warrior sides of Bobby. Each book adds new friends and foes whom Bobby must learn to trust or fight. Dufris masters them as quickly as they appear. He's at his strongest orchestrating the hollow-sounding, mesmerizing broadcasts of the ever-present games. Within those broadcasts, Dufris's portrayal of the deranged media personalities Veego and LaBerge are perfectly amusing and perfectly disturbing.

Customer Reviews

I recommend it highly, very much in the category of fantasy.
Sadi
The only bad part of this book is that it has to end as we wait for the next installment of the Pendragon Series.
Jarrod T Thompson
I loved the action suspense and the touch of humor but the mystery pulled the whole book together for me.

I discovered the Pendragon book series when I was at Middle School, and just looking at the cover of book 1 The Merchant of Death, I became very interested in them. I read the first book when I was fourteen-years old, and I instantly fell in love with them. The whole storyline about a teenage kid writing and sending journals to his best friends describing his incredible and frightening adventure through space and time is very interesting, and the characters are well defined and have great dialouge and characteristics.So far each book has fascinated me, and I've never once been disappointed by any one of them.

Now the latest installment of the series,Book 7 The Quillan Games, is an exciting and action-filled adventure that takes fans to a whole different place and meets new,unique characters.

In this book, Bobby Pendragon, the young hero of the series,travels to the territory of Quillan, a dark world with no emotion and is controlled by a company called BLOK. Bobby soon learns what the turning-point of this world may be, since he finds out that everyone on Quillan gambles on a series of sports and games called The Quillan Games. However the people of Quillan don't bet on the games with money....but with their own lives, and if they lose, they'll pay. Determined to stop the territory from colliding, Bobby ends up becoming one of the champions, under the control of two spectators named Veego and LaBarge, and competes in a series of deadly games and tasks, risking his life for the sake of all of Quillan and, even greater, all of Halla.

I was given a copy of this book by my father and brother, who were able to get one of the very first copies ever, because it wasn't supposed to come out yet, and get it singed by D.J.

You are transported to the territory of Quillian where everything is controlled by a company called BLOK. The only chance to get anything is putting bets into the Quillian game shows and game machines.But you must win or... well I think you should read the book to find out, but one hint, they don't have a party.The Quillian Games, written by D.J. MacHale was magnificently written. I was glued to the book for two days ( the time it took me to read it), I even read it while eating dinner with my family! If you enjoyed the other 6 books this is another to add to your collection of favorites.

D.J. MacHale has done it again. His latest installment of Pendragon is fast-paced, action packed, and his cliff hanger ending is guaranteed to leave fans begging for more.

The seventh book picks up where the sixth book left off. Bobby travels to Quillan, a territory where people are forced to become Challengers, players of a series of diabolical and dangerous games. If they win, they'll be treated like royalty; if they lose, it's not so pretty.

The rest of the citizens of Quillan don't play the games, but most people bet on them to put food on the table. If they bet on the wrong Challenger, it can be as bad as losing the games.

While Bobby is dealing with the insanity on Quillan, Mark and Courtney are trying to put their lives back together on Second Earth. Courtney is still recovering from her "accident" at the end of the sixth book, and Mark is spending a lot of time with Andy Mitchell, his ex-worst enemy. I don't want to say much more about the plot, other than, Saint Dane promises Bobby to reveal the "true nature" of the Travelers if he does......something for him.

Like all the Pendragon books, the story is action-packed and very exciting. However, the book never becomes formulaic because of some unusual plot twists, and interesting, if slightly creepy, character development. The series has gotten much darker since the first book, but still has its funny moments.

My only peeve is two scenes where Saint Dane corners Bobby and gives him the overused "You think you can stop me? I am going to crush you, you insignificant little boy. Bwahaha!" speech, while Bobby just sits there. Okay, so maybe it's pointless to try to kill Saint Dane because he'll just come back to life anyway, but Bobby could have done SOMETHING.

I have read the first 6 books several times each, but none of them even compare to book seven, The Quillan Games. None of the books had the amount of mystery, action, and intensity that this book has. Bobby lands on Quillan (via flume), and everything is normal, clothes there for him to change into, and of course, quigs (super sized meat loving creatures) for him to avoid. Well, on Quillan, quigs are spiders. Lots and lots of mechanical spiders. Bobby avoids them (duh, what, did you think he'd get eaten in the first chapter?), and finds out that the clothes he is wearing make him qualify to participate in the Quillan games. Sounds fun, right? Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, no. The game creators, Veego and LaBerge have made the games so intense that the loser dies. They are like being put into a virtual reality game that isn't virtual. It's up to Bobby to put a stop to these games before these games put a stop to life on Quillan.

This book blew me away. No question. This book puts such a monumental twist on the Pendragon series that it's impossible to predict how the future books are going to turn out. You think Rivers of Zadaa was amazing? Black Water terrifying? This is definitely the most breath-taking, amazing, astonishing, astounding adventure yet!
