Zoriam: The Bios River
When Zoriam accompanies the old man on a trip back to Salzia, he is thrust into a web of political intrigue that will determine the fate of Salzia and its neighboring city of Yozana. Soon, Zoriam will be caught in the middle of a war between the two cities, with no idea of who he can trust. He"ll have to use his wits and every skill he has to protect the people he loves--and find out the truth about who he is.
At first, I thought that the story was a little predictable but then soon realized that I was wrong. This really made me want to continue reading the book to find out what will happen. I am hoping that the author, Taoufik Jazouli, will soon write the next book in this series.
Annie McGwire and the Time Flyer
I really enjoyed this book. It is targeted towards young teenagers. I did feel like I was left with ome unanswered questions, but I am hoping that there will be future books to continue the series. With this being Mike Ziniti's first book, I thought he did an excellent job.
Crime and Punishment
I found the concept of the novel a excellent idea for a book, but then I was quickly disappointed upon reading it. It was a difficult read. I had a hard time knowing what was going on upon conversations that would go on and on and on. I think, if written differently, this story line has potential to be a great read for someone like me.
Grimes Fairy TalesI heard about this book from many sources. I was was very excited about reading this book. After several chapters in, I found that I didn't really like this book. I knew that they were more gloomy fairy tales than what we are use to. That didn't matter. What i didn't like was how abrutely the story would just stop and they would say "to this day we don't know where they are, they could be dead". I just felt it was lazy to end it that way. Also many of the stories were the same but with just some small differences, so i felt like i was wasting my time.
Now I am off to read "Crime and Punishment". I gave a friend of min a copy of it and she said it was so hard to get through the book. She often felt like she didn't know what was going on or when she did it was boring. I'll let you know how i like it.
Awakened by Cast
I have anticipated for the books to come out and when it did, it was no disappointment. Out of all the House of Night novels, I thought this one was the best. The only negative was at the end of the book I had to scream because the next one doesnt come out untill November 2011 and I want to know what happens next. It left me wanting more.
Next on my list is The Adventures of Mark Twain and Huckleberry Finn....let the adventure begin.
