Well When I started this particular Pendragon installment, I definitely wasn t expecting to have an entire ending chapter that rivaled the amount I cried during Clockwork Princess s epilogue, but here we are it wasn t quite as much as CP2 but that s just because that epilogue was the best ending ever Wow, this was such a crazy ride from beginning to end My boyfriend only told me one thing when it came to this book and that was that it didn t really take place in one single territory and now Well When I started this particular Pendragon installment, I definitely wasn t expecting to have an entire ending chapter that rivaled the amount I cried during Clockwork Princess s epilogue, but here we are it wasn t quite as much as CP2 but that s just because that epilogue was the best ending ever Wow, this was such a crazy ride from beginning to end My boyfriend only told me one thing when it came to this book and that was that it didn t really take place in one single territory and now I completely understand why he told me that It wasn t like the others where we were introduced to a new world and a new challenge, this one progressed the story line so much and really finalized a lot.The second half of the book just kind of left me shocked and the book as a whole gave me an eerie feeling of witnessing the world during Hitler s rise to power The tattoos, the flags, the sense of superior human beings It honestly kinda left me shuddering onthan one occasion while reading certain parts Bobby finally gets reunited with his best friends Mark and Courtney only to be ripped away again almost as quickly He and Alder make a daring journey in an attempt to stop so much bad from happening, only to be screwed at every turn There were a couple times where I honestly found myself getting lured into believing one way, starting to get comfortable, when something would come up out of nowhere and leave me feeling like a complete idiot for being lured into that false sense of security.I could feel Bobby s frustration, his anger, his sadness, all of it throughout this book His emotions kept rising and rising and I could feel his blind hatred when it came to him being on that helicopter in that last bit His whole existence is a question, he s terrified of what s at stake beyond just him being real or not, he s angry at all the friend s he s lost and his unfair disadvantage when it comes to this whole war This is where you really start to see Bobby being screwed over yet again when he comes back to the fight and it s so hard to see him lose as much as he has with very little complaining He s such an amazingly strong and strong willed person, it hurts to see the way he s hurt time and time again.That last bit, the last chapter, I cannot even begin to explain how utterly huge and devastating that chapter was for me You don t realize how much you start loving these characters, rooting for them and their mission, hoping that you don t have to watch them die They re all some of the most amazing characters and they re all so unique compared to each other, he does such a good job making sure they re all their own people and I love that This was an amazing penultimate book and I cannot wait to read the last one to see how everything ends up wrapping up in the end I already have it sitting next to me and I could not beexcited [[ DOWNLOAD PDF ]] ↬

a little sad I couldn t put this book down, seriously Spoilers When Alder died, I effin sobbed my heart out He s my favorite character besides Spader and Siry , so it was gut wrenching.And the giant flume Holy cupcakes, that was weird Awesome to a T but pretty scary How could Naymeer, Saint Dane, and Nevva do that Wow.What a weird ending.This is by far one of my favorite Pendragon books, hands

my favorite character besides Spader and Siry , so it was gut wrenching.And the giant flume Holy cupcakes, that was weird Awesome to a T but pretty scary How could Naymeer, Saint Dane, and Nevva do that The Ravinians are scary people The ending, though, had to be one of the strangest things I ve ever read Where in Halla were they When Spader came back I was like foam It was crazy awesome, seeing everyone alive again Meaning Kasha and Press D But seriously, this book was awesome Can t wait for the next one My biggest flaw with these books is the promise of answers The promise of all the answers will be revealed but as the books progressed, we had none We were still in The dark about everything and everyone, so let s see if it can be made up for in the last book Alder and Spader are my faves I ve liked this series in the past, but it s just dragging on and on and on and.It wasof the same that s happened in the last eight books At first it was exciting, but it s really gone on too long I will read the last to find out what happens in the end, but I m not excited about it any. The long Pendragon series is about to end Its the penultimate book9 Raven Riseand its getting ugly and its also getting dystopic Which is my kind of good Lets read,Here is the summary of the book This is where it begins The showdown for Halla At stake is nothing less than all that ever was and all that will be There s only one thing missing Bobby Pendragon While Bobby remains trapped on Ibara, the battle moves to his home territory Second Earth Mark Dimond and Courtney Chetwynde The long Pendragon series is about to end Its the penultimate book9 Raven Riseand its getting ugly and its also getting dystopic Which is my kind of good Lets read,Here is the summary of the book This is where it begins The showdown for Halla At stake is nothing less than all that ever was and all that will be There s only one thing missing Bobby Pendragon While Bobby remains trapped on Ibara, the battle moves to his home territory Second Earth Mark Dimond and Courtney Chetwynde are left on their own to defend Second Earth agsinst the forces of Saint Dane They must face off against a charismatic cult leader who has risen to power by revealing a shattering truth to the people of Earth They are not alone The Convergence has broken down the walls The territories are on a collision course The final phase of Saint Dane s quest to rule Halla is under way And Bobby Pendragon is nowhere to be found.The story starts after Bobby trapped himself and demonic Saint Dane on the tropical Ibara, yet it seems that his sacrifice was pointless for the Convergence has already begun On Third Earth, Patrick wakes up to a dystopian future Earth He meets up with Mark and Courtney in 1930 and they go to Second Earth to try and stop Saint Dane s plans Nevva is disguised as Telleo trying to get Bobby to fall in love with her no luck and lets a few minor details slip Bobby then finds out that Saint Dane has escaped Ibara, and goes after his to his home territory Second Earth A cult leader named Alexander Naymeer an English idealist, brainwashed by Saint Dane is creating chaos with Ravinia the name of the cult Bobby, Alder, Mark, and Courtney try to avoid the Ravinians while looking for the leader of the rebellion In a giant battle known as the Bronx Massacre almost half the characters die or at least seem to be dead leaving clinchers for the next book , and Saint Dane seems to have won Yet the ending gives readers hope for Bobby and the travelers.So literally all hell has broken loose Although the previous book should be called for where all hell started to break loose D J Machale has completely discarded all the formula he used in the previous books and its chaotic and to some extent I ve been expecting it since I began reading it, we ll take of this later Bobby Pendragon is now grown and his decisions have not gotten any easier The bond of friendships are still what make him such an endearing and flawed character Halla is pretty chaotic and things are not as they are meant to be That premise drives the book, shakes up former realities and brings us one step closer to understanding what is really going on in this Matrix like world of adventure Just a ref matrix is way better than this whole stuff Although the first few I said few since this series is not my favourite books were amazing and real pageturners, this one was a bit hard to keep up with machales writing style was not top quality and quite repetitive it was like the entire series led up to this one book and everybody was expecting it to go out with a bang but it turned out to have a quite weak plot and did not live up to the reputation of the series This installment of Pendragon is both exhilarating and disappointing all at the same time There is so much going on and so much to take in from the past books that the bulk of adventure from any one territory is muted, which disappoints me because I love the individual experiences on each of the territories I still am lingering on the past descriptive genius of unique territories such as Cloral and Eelong The cool part is that the story line all still works well and I could not put this book down.I felt that this whole book was the lets watch the hero be stupid so that when he gets his act together later it will beimpressive part of the story Now I can stand that for a chapter or two, but not a whole book It got very old for me very quickly All that you need form this book to get to the last one is a page or two on the few actions important to the plot I do hope that the next book, the hero has his act together 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.Bottom line is its good but don t waste your money borrow it from a friend for those who found the book interesting please don t mind this is an honest opinion that is all I m sorry, but this book depressed me imensley I still enjoy the series and will undoubtedly read the 10th and final book But this one was really hard to get to The world is coming to an end, everything was going wrong, and it never got any better I don t know if the point was to give themto fix in the last book, but it seemed so hopeless. 3.5 5 it was good, but not anything super special I really liked the ending though. In the ninth installment of Bobby Pendragon s quest to save Halla from the clutches of Saint Dane, things go from crummy to worse Mark and Courtney don t know what to believe when Saint Dane tells them that Bobby has given up the fight, don t know what they ve started when Mark loses his traveler ring, and don t know what to do when they return to a Second Earth where nothing is as it once was.These books are really interesting to me on a craft level On the one hand, the plotting is top notch In the ninth installment of Bobby Pendragon s quest to save Halla from the clutches of Saint Dane, things go from crummy to worse Mark and Courtney don t know what to believe when Saint Dane tells them that Bobby has given up the fight, don t know what they ve started when Mark loses his traveler ring, and don t know what to do when they return to a Second Earth where nothing is as it once was.These books are really interesting to me on a craft level On the one hand, the plotting is top notch with most of this series, I think I see the final twist coming, I usually predict one right, and then WHAM Something comes flying in out of left field that I never anticipated But it doesn t feel like a cheat It s just really excellent story telling.On the other hand, I find myself pretty much constantly annoyed with some of the actual writing D.J MacHale is a perfect example of telling instead of showing What he normally does is show us something and then tell us about it Several times For example Welcome back, he said warmly, as if he actually meant it I was afraid you d miss the festivities Close your eyes I ll put some lights on What a courteous guy He didn t want me to be uncomfortable when he flicked on the lights How thoughtful I d have thanked him if I hadn t wanted to hurt him.MacHale is trying for the easy conversationalism and sarcasm of Bobby s internal monologue, but really, he just succeeds in telling us the same thing twice And he does it over and over and over again throughout the book The tome s 544 pages could probably have been trimmed by a third by an editor with a canny eye As it is, I spend a lot of time skimming with these books.Also, his tenses bother me Everything Bobby writes in his journals is in the past tense Everything Even things that are still true If he means, I love Coke, as in, he still loves it even when he is writing the journal, he will nevertheless say I loved Coke, as if the love had passed I know, it s a grammarian thing, but it bugs the heck out of me and has for all nine books.But that s the interesting part I still love the story I m still coming back forAnd I m still REALLY disappointed that the last book of the series isn t out yet so I can run out and read it Definitely good for guys, especially guys who like a series they can sink their teeth into But girls will probably like it just as much Hooray for female characters who kick ass WARNING THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS This is probably my favorite one of the series I laughed, cried, and made people slightly scared for my sanity as I yelled Oh that did NOT just happen This the second to last book in the series and holy mamba is it a doozy As MacHale told me at the BEA Conference, the last 3 books are a series of their own because things really start to go down I finally see what he means The fabric of Halla is disintegrating and at the start of the book, Bob WARNING THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS This is probably my favorite one of the series I laughed, cried, and made people slightly scared for my sanity as I yelled Oh that did NOT just happen This the second to last book in the series and holy mamba is it a doozy As MacHale told me at the BEA Conference, the last 3 books are a series of their own because things really start to go down I finally see what he means The fabric of Halla is disintegrating and at the start of the book, Bobby is out of play You get to see the point of view of different travelers instead of just Mark, Courtney and Bobby Things really start to get messed up on the territories as you try to figure out what exactly Saint Dane has planned Things also get personal for Bobby, Mark and Courtney as the fight is taken to their home, Second Earth The only thing I didn t quite understand was how Tello could be Nevva when Nevva took Mark s ring on First Earth and the entrance to the flume to Ibara was closed off The only thing I could think of was that Saint Dane had the flume dug up long before we thought or he did it faster than we thought since I don t think Tello went missing for a while Overall, it wasn t really clear how this happened Overall, this book gets 5 5 for me Even with the confusion, this books was packed full of action, shock and awe The ending, especially, will leave you in shock and awe There is so much that happened but to keep from blathering on I will just say read the book and have the 10th handy, because you are just going to want to jump right into the next book
