Children's LiteratureEven if you have not read the other four books that precede this one in the "Pendragon" series, you can jump in the water and find yourself afloat pretty quickly. Bobby Pendragon is a Traveler, and he and others like him are in a battle to save all of time and space and its worlds from the dominion of the evil Saint Dane. The struggle really heats up. Suddenly, all the rules have changed and Bobby and his friends Mark and Courtney are drawn into the action. This story, like real life, is full of choices and dilemmas of right and wrong with little clear direction. The characters do their best, but being teenagers, they sometimes make hasty, ill-conceived decisions, but always with the best of intentions. Their good intentions and their inner strength help them in their constant struggle against evil. Will Saint Dane win the battle? Will the klee and gars who inhabit Black Water learn to live in harmony? How many more Travelers will be lost in the battle with Saint Dane and where will Bobby's new adventures take him? MacHale creates believable worlds, heroes who have doubts and lots of adventures as well as tension in this series. This is a combination that makes a compelling read for lovers of science fiction and fantasy. 2004, Aladdin/Simon & Schuster, Ages 10 up.
