    For the sci-fi and time-travel aficionado. The Obsidian Blade

    For the sci-fi and time-travel aficionado.

    The Obsidian Blade dives right into its seemingly normal world where we meet the Feye family--Tucker, Emily, and the Reverend. They seem like a normal enough family, but things change drastically after Reverend Feye disappears one day and returns just an hour later with a strange girl and a changed attitude. The story takes off from there, catapulting the reader into a fast-paced story that is filled with action and adventure.

    The Obsidian Blade is a great time-travel novel that will appeal to those die-hard science fiction readers but fell a bit flat for me in the end. The first half of the story introduces us to the world and the characters and I was really enjoying reading it. Then, suddenly, in the last hundred pages or so, the story started to feel choppy to me and I lost the connection that I was starting to develop with the characters. Action and violence take over the plot and left me wondering how the characters I was starting to love suddenly seemed so flat.

    Our main character, Tucker, I really did enjoy getting to know for most of the story and in the end he proves himself brave and loyal to his friends. The whole noel is almost a sort-of coming-of-age story but not in the traditional sense. Tucker has to deal with a lot of strange things and I think that it forces him to grow up and start facing reality (or "reality" such as things are). I especially enjoyed his friendship with Lahlia because they weren't best friends or even really close friends but you could constantly feel the connection between them developing.

    In the end, this book was good and one that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to (a) teenage boys (always looking for more of those!) and (b) science fiction/time travel lovers. However, beyond those two demographics, I'm not sure that the action, violence, and constant jumping between times/worlds in the latter half of the book will hold the attention of many readers.

    Amazing-worth the money

    I was looking around in English, and saw a boy reading this book. Since we like similar books, I picked it up. I could not put it down. I mean, at the first chapter, I was hooked. I highly reccomend this book for 10-17 year olds.

    The overall storyline for the book was quite good, but other than that there
    isn't much more to say. The story developed very very quickly and without much background information.
    This made the story hard to follow and very unenjoyable. Also, I was hoping the book was going to be good sci-fi, 
    but it turned into a tangled web of  crazy religious people trying to get to the main character. A very poor read overall

    It had a pretty distance story idea. But the overall story line

    It had a pretty distance story idea. But the overall story line was hard to follow and the author really had terrible creative names.  everything from Klaatu Diskos, Lahlia, Boggsian, and Medicant. Things were all randomly named and poorly thought. maybe I'm being overly critical but it gets hard to read a book when such a great idea is delivered poorly. And with was seems like mediocre attempts to creatively name things. But it unique and good idea
