Overview

The city of Metri Nui, long peaceful under the reign of Turaga Dume, was under attack.  For the past month, a vicious plant called the Morbuzakh had been terrorizing the edges of town, destroying buildings and making Matoran vanish without a trace.   The enforcers of order, the Vahki, could do little to stop the spread of the Morbuzakh, and the Toa who guarded the city had gone on missions from which they never returned.  Only Toa Lhikan was left, and when he saw two Dark Hunters in the city –...

    I Also Recommend:

    This new BIONICLE comic is a new hit for BIONICLE fans around the globe, especially for those who did not have the chance to get the original comic itself.

    on the first page, it has comic art of the book's main villan, followed by advertisements of previous books and the next book "The Battle Of Voya Nui". I think this is a good guide to people that pick it up and believe it is the first book in the series. The one bad dietail about the illustrations and words is that the artwork had to be somewhat shrunk down to fit the book size, forcing the captions and speech bubbles to cover up more art. the beginning of each chapter is a picture of the original cover for the comics, and at the back of the book there are ads, followed by a sneak peek of the next BIONICLE book. enjoy!

    AWESOME!!!!!!!

    I recommend this book to anyone that is over the age of 7. I think that this book has great detail and cool action scenes. The book is the perfect length for a short, but good read.

    Number 2 for the Toa Metru's Adventures!

    The Toa are searching for the Disks of Power. Without these disks, they may never be able to defeat the Morbuzakh that is destroying the city of Metru Nui. Six Matoran say they can help find the disks, but at least one of them has his own plans. Will the Toa succeed in their quest? Or will someone that they thought they could trust betray them? This is a very cool and good, action-packed, awesome Bionicle Adventure! I just love all the action and adventure in it! It tells of the Toa Metru's serach for the Great Disks, and also the defeat of the Morbuzakh.

    Awesome Book

    The first was good, but the second one was filled with action and the Toa Metru's attacks on the King Root. I recommend this book to all Bioinlce fans!

    The Adventures Continue...

    I thought 'Mystery of Metru Nui' was the best BIONICLE book ever, until I read 'Trail by Fire'. I will give a short overview of the book: Chapters 1-8 are the Toa Metru searching for the Great Disks. The events are like a REALLY long version of Comic 17. The Toa split into three teams, and with the Matoran, look for the Great Disks. They encounter visious Rahi, Vahki, plenty of Morbuzakh and once, the evil being (whom we know next to nothing about) Nidhiki. Each pair of Toa is given 2 or 3 chapters,with some ending on a sort of cliffhanger, making a highly anticapeted 'What's gonna happen?' romp while giving plenty of change and exictment. The ninth chapter is the scene at the end of Comic 17, where they begun to seek the King Root of the Morbuzakh. What happens afterwards is so exciting that reveling even the slightest event from one of these last three chapters could ruin the whole book, so I'll keep that to myself and not spoil everything. However, if you want to know the consequences of the Morbuzakh battle, and can't wait till late-may for Comic 18, get it!!!! And if you can still wait, get it still!!! The adventures of the Toa finding the Great Disks should be more than enough fun! I solely recommend this book to any and every BIONICLE fan who is interested in Metru Nui. And if you feel more like this whole 'Metru Nui' thing is rot(I did till I read the books)read and your feelings will go away and be replaced with an unmistakable urge to find out what happens next!
