RAVEN RISE is a wonderful addition to the PENDRAGON series. It is just as exciting as the rest and keeps you wanting more. I had a hard time putting it down and there is no way that I will not be purchasing the next one so I can find out what happens next!

RAVEN RISE is about a Traveler named Bobby Pendragon. Now eighteen, his struggle to save Halla is harder than ever, and everything he's ever done has come down to this. He must save Halla from an extremely evil man, Saint Dane, who is trying to merge all of the worlds into one.

Saint Dane is not only trying to mix territories, which is something that Travelers are not supposed to do, but he is also trying to create the perfect group of people who will follow under him. What will he do with the "not perfect" people? He will take care of them.

Saint Dane plans on controlling all of Halla, and he will decide what he thinks is right for the people of the territories. He believes he is doing right by deciding people's destinies for them and not letting them make their own decisions. Pendragon, on the other hand, thinks that people should make the decisions of their lives on their own.

The battle is on in RAVEN RISE. The battle for Halla. The internal battle of Bobby Pendragon. The battle of the people of the territories. And the battle between Saint Dane and Pendragon. This is what it is all coming down to.

I have always enjoyed the Pendragon series and by reading the first fifty pages of the ninth installment i can already tell that it is my favorite. It is a very casual read and one of the few books I can read for entertaining purposes. I greatly enjoyed the books when I was younger but after starting to read this edition to the series I feel as if I have outgrown the books. I still enjoyed the read but not as much as I used to. On a further note I highly recomend this series to any young adult hungry for action and adventure on every page. It is an easy read and and addicting from the very first page. DJ Mchale does a fantastic job describing the plot in detail and his creativity is unmatched.

    Lacks the grab of the previous editions. Mediocre at best. I expected more, and that is my fault.
