Fantastic!

Oh my gosh this book was marvelously suspenseful and dramatic! It was a little slow to get to a point where the title made sense but it was a great read! Im recommending this to everyone.

The Arena Wars by Samantha Hoffman. It was an excellent book! It made me want to cry, laugh, and then cry again with the flip of a page. It was amazing! I cannot wait to read the next installment. There was definatly a cliffhanger ending. The ending was kind of sad up until the very last page. The last page was probably my favorite part of vthe book. The fught to the death concept reminded me of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. But the fight to the death scenes went into greater detail, unlike The Hunger Games. Never the less, it was an amazing book. The romance wasn't overly expressed but was not barely expressed. The author is definatly making sure you want to read the next book with the ending. I was making guesses at what happened, but they were wrong. The author was simply amazing. I will be reading the rest of the series. This book is for paranirmal world lovers, romance seekers, to the death book lovers, and teens. Even boys will love this story. Excellent job! The Arena Wars by Samantha Hoffman.

    Ugh.

    I don't understand why you made Quinten a vampire in the end. It makes more sense for him a werewolf somehow. Some unnatural law of the werewolf or something. For that, you get a low rating. Sorry.

    It passed the time...but that was about it.

    Barely decent

    If this was written by a young teen i say good effort and keep honing your craft. If author is 20+ your writing style, and character development are juevenile at best.

    I thought this book was okay. The only thing that stood out to me was the good desriptive language the author uses. But overall I thought that she was trying to meld Twilight and the Hunger Games, but it didn't really work out.

    Meh

    This book, though it had an overall good plot, was very predictable, with multiple spelling and grammatical errors, and made me feel that parts of it was ripped off of The Hunger Games. I feel the author could have done better at this project.
    I did enjoy reading though when I put aside the points listed above. I hope the author improves and I can look forward to more books
