Megan, 15 year old
I bought this book from a book order form, thinking it sounded very interesting, and the summary intrigued my Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Supernatural personality. The first time I opened the book I felt my heart drop. I was seriously, and I mean, majorly disappointed. While reading this, which I did for the most part, but I skipped the last chapter, I think (I couldn't read anymore). I truly felt that I was reading something a ten year old wrote, no offense to ten year olds. It was just completely lacking in the way it was written. In other words, very poor. I also thought that the author didn't put much thought into it. Things happened much too quickly, in a way. Also, those two boys must have been gensius because there was no other explanation. Everything was to secretive, the author should have made it where the boys slowly found out the rules a little at a time. If I were you, as a friendly hint, I would suggest you do not purchase this book. It will disappoint and cause you waste your money.

What was this author thinking!! This tale was a cross between Shrek, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, A Series of Unfotunate Events, and the 'His Dark Materials' series all jumbled toghter. Seemingly a good combination, but not in this sense. Everything came out stupidly and just....wrong. The story was boring, confusing, and terribly unsurprising. I, a lover of fantasy, thought I would enjoy this book, but I positivley hated it. There was only one surprise at the end, which was cool, but that was about it. This author tried to make this story too much like books already out on the shelves. I am advising you to really, skip this horrid book and read something else.Was this review helpful?
