This book was a very exciting book to read. I loved how it starts up right from where the first book, The Merchant of Death, left off. The author describes all of the new territories and characters in EXCELLENT detail. I felt as if I was in the story experiencing everything Bobby was. The author also keeps the reader in suspense throughout the entire book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an action-packed fantasy with a "futuristic" feel to it. I really enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait to read the third one in the series!!!
So I read this book about...4 weeks ago? And Im not going to give an excuse, but the turnout of the book didn't motivate me to write this review. I think as a Pendragon fan, I enjoyed it, but there were some things I didn't connect with that I connected with better with the original. Why dont I just highlight the pros and the cons.
What I liked:
I love the new character Vo Spader. Booby wasn't vague in describing that he looked Asian(or rather I think it'd be better to state East Asian)looking up the fan art confirmed how I saw him. Very handsome, East Asian, with a big, infectious smile. Im not sure if the author does this intentionally, but I like how Bobby meets characters of color, and it's not an issue, or a racial thing, or even a thing in general. So far, of the travelers he's met so far, one has been one, one black(and a girl) and one asian.
I like that this heritage isn't just shared amongst only the white folk, where we have to just sit back and be amazed by them. Im being completely sarcastic, but a part of that is true.
Vo was very gregarious, and he wasn't written to be or prove anything to the story, he just was.
I think I kind of liked the world, but I'll go into the issues with the world building in the cons section. I think I still like the idea that there isn't just one world out there, I connect with that aspect of it the most.
What I didn't connect with:
Oh the grammar. Still horrible as ever. I keep wondering why Bobby does all that telling. He's not 3, I think he's capable of structuring his sentences a lot better than the author allows him to.Read more ›
I also liked the newer element of time travel that relates to a realm we all understand--Second Earth(Earth).
This book is fast-paced and intriguing--those are the two elements I look for when reading a book. The Pendragon series has satisfied those conditions thus far.
I hope the rest in the series are as good as the first two are.
