More geared toward young teens, Dragon's Pupil's is a quick paced tale with magic, adventure and mystery. Liz learning something from her dad's stories was educational and the painted backdrop of beautiful China was a definite attention grabber. However, the characters themselves were not three dimensional. They needed more depth, more emotion in their characteristics. That said, obviously the author has great knowledge about Kung Fu and it shines through in his writing. If you like reading an adventure story, or learning about other cultures, then definitely give this book a whirl. It really is educational and fun!

I thought this was going to be a well written, fascinating and indepth urban fantasy, taking place in modern day Australia. Instead, it's an incredibly flat book, with characters that are unrelatable and extremely dull and fake. (the main characters are supposedly 14... for how it reads, they could be 4 years old to 84, and it wouldn't change anything with how they act.). I'm on page 300 of a 591 page book, and only plan on finishing it because I started it. It's still inane and a horrible way to spend my time. Don't both, even if it is free.

    Not that great

    I myself found this abit off in my opinion. Imean at first it was pretty good i liked the plot. Halfway through i kind of got bored. Tje author was to much into japenese stuff. But some might like that stuff. The backpack killers was a good twist though
