slow down and savour the readThis is only a trilogy Well I look forward todown and savour the readThis is only a trilogy Well I look forward to Check out my full video review ere The Emerald Atlas reads like a mix of CSLewis s The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe JKRowling s Harry Potter and even Lemony Snicket s A Series of Unfortunate Events It was just too much so many plots and elements taken from every other popular series that Stephens almost fails to deliver Kingdom of Ashes (Nightfall, his own twistsis uniue charms to the novel Stephen s protagonists are not unfamiliar They re almost archetypal And certainly the re very reminiscent of Violet Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire particularly MichaelKlaus s bookish ways Gabriel was like a mix of my favorite giant Hagrid and Narnia s Aslan Dr Pym was clearly another version of Albus Dumbledore Aside from that I m getting uite fed up with this whole orphan concept with the kids getting sympathy from readers due to this longing and missing their parents The whole gotta rescue my parents who are trapped by some great evil plot is overused too I really just wished Stephens could Websters Ii Dictionary, Third Edition, Office Edition have done something new added another twist to them being lonely orphans The general plot is intriguing but painstakingly underdeveloped and filled with ludicrous and overused elements I m a big fan of time traveling concepts but unfortunately The Emerald Atlas just confused me with this telling of dual universes and just the technicalities and loopoles of such details I don t even want to go back and try to understand it any But The point is there are two different versions of what Aladdin happened in the past yet Dr Pym and others remember both accounts even after Kate changedistory Um I thought two versions couldn t exist simultaneously And Daddy Must Die hello butterfly effect anyone Time traveling theories are uite tricky which is really why Stephens shouldn tave attempted it I just think it takes someone experienced to try to explain these concepts especially since The Message Glorious his writing wasn t totally on par Interestingly enough Stephens worked on Gossip Girl Gil Girls and The OC Maybee should stick to script writing as Stephens tends to roll over the details as well as important dialogue with a paragraph summary The imbalance between dialogue and summary was just really prominent through out Stephens does throw in uite an amount of O Cérebro de Broca humor and even wit but it seems like I noticed the flaws I don tate the book even despite the awful load of taken plot elements and characteristics from my favorite fictional personalities as the general story can be uite uniue However I found the protagonists not very endearing or lovely the other characters too similar to some of my favorites to even differentiate and the time traveling just too full of Damia's Children: Rowan 3 (The Tower Hive Sequence) by Anne McCaffrey (1994-02-03) holes to fully enjoy If I was 10 15 younger I would rate this book 55 without a doubt Now I am maybe bit too old but I enjoyed it it was lovely bookMust read for fans of books like Narnia or comics like Amulet While it is possible for a plot to be too simple this author seemed to believe thatis story would get better and better the complicated Breaking The Curse (Sexy Reversed Fairy Tales he could make the plot What we end up with is three protagonists who are rarely together so weave to follow at least two and sometimes three different story lines at the same time with constant shifting between them not to mention all the not very well defined time traveling and it s kind of a mess There are two or three chapters near the end which seem to be added just to try to explain everything else that A Banquet of Consequences (Inspector Lynley, happened But by the time I got to those chapters Iad stopped caring The author was too busy spinning a web to make us care about any of the main characters Even the names were not consistant We ave one character who is alternately refered to as the witch or the countess and I think she may ave been given a name too There is the secretary who is also Cavandish I kept forgetting this was the same person The bad guys also ave two names and it doesn t seem to matter who is talking about them as to which name is used Even Kate one of the main siblings meets one person who constantly calls er Katherine and another who always calls Keeper of the Light her Katrina and she never once says Hello My name is Kate First in a series of three I m guessing about three kids who are supposed to save the world. They were taken from their beds one frozen night when the world was covered in snow The silhouette of a tall thin manas Shattered Spear (The Lost Stars, haunted Kate ever sinceTen years on Kate Michael and Emmaave grown up in a string of miserable orphanages and all memories of their parents ave faded. The only thing is they don t know why and they don t know owThese three kids Kate Michael and Emma are orphans Their parents The Women of Easter had them taken to an orphanage ten years ago with a promise to Kate that they would be back Since then the childrenave been shuffled from Why Are You So Scared? home toome never giving up on their parents and never allowing themselves to be adopted They eventually end up in a place called Cambridge Falls and find themselves in a creepy old The Power of One house with a shrewishousekeeper Mrs Swallow and dotty old groundskeeper called Abraham The place is supposed to be an orphanage but Kate Michael Emma seem to be the only children there And the mysterious Dr Pym who reuested the children
BE SENT TO HIM IS NOTsent to The Wolf Gift (The Wolf Gift Chronicles, him is not kids take start to explore this oldouse and end up down in the basement area where they discover an old laboratory and in the laboratory they find an old book But this is no ordinary book and when the kids open it all the pages are blank Michael assumes this is an empty photo album as there is an old photo sitting next to the book He sets the photo inside the book and POOF All three kids are transported to the time and place where this photo was taken From there the story takes off with an evil Countess and terrible monsters and terrified townspeople to saveThe story was not bad but my problem was that these kids are not very credibly drawn I mean I don t think Mr Stephens He Who Dares has kids or maybee s not been around any in a while The youngest I reuested this book thinking that it would be a fun and magical children s story aimed at 8 10 year olds like with the Percy Jackson series but I was really surprised by the complexity and depth in this book as well as the darkness and loved every minute of reading it I m actually a little disappointed that I ll now The Thing About December have to wait for so long to read the next book and see whatappens Kate Michael and Emma Os Peixes Também Sabem Cantar have been shunted from orphanage to orphanage for 10 years since being removed from their parentsouse one Christmas Eve with a kiss and a promise that they ll be reunited again one day Then after missing their last chance at placement with a foster family they are sent to Cambridge Falls where they stumble on an adventure that t h WOWThis was as magical as Harry Potter and as epic as Narnia The Emerald Atlas was simply a delight to readThis is a fantastic children s fantasy The characters are engaging and eachas their own personality making it easy to relate to at least one And they ave flaws They ave real believable flawsThe world is simply enchanting It is built so well that I could imagine it all so well at points I wondered to myself if there Stand Up and Fight had been a dramatisation of this made because it really came to life There are your common fantasy races like dwarves and witches but then there are some brand new and uite terrifying additionsThe plot is fantastic there are aspects of mystery that don t end as you think they will It twists and turns andelps to weave this marvellous story And that ending Just when you think everything as calmed down that everything is going to be OK now Well I don t want to spoil it for youWhen I finished this I was left with that slightly empty yet expectant feeling that I ave very rarely felt This is a really powerful start to the seriesI can t wait to read on I received a copy of this for free via Goodreads First Reads OkayI m torn Now Is the Hour here I d like to go a bit than 3 starsere but if I do I ll need to go find all my 4 star books and move them up to 5 then what do i do with the 5 star books So stuck with 3 and telling you i find it a bit better than just 3You will if like me you occasionally pick up a YA book or if you Londons Glory (Bryant May, have YAs in your life and read with them find some of this book somewhat familiar A group of 3 children rather than a single child are whisked away into the night away from their parents because an evil and powerful mage magus is after them Why Because of a prophecyof courseDon t give up This isn t really another Harry Potter wanna be well I suppose it does aspire to the sales and popularitybut it doesave some similarities with those books and a few others Still given time it manages to forge it s own story mostly and tells it pretty wellI did find these 3 of the most annoying children I ve run across in YA fiction especially Emma the youngest but bear up the book is readable and pulls itself together And ends in a cliff Jingle Bells hanger that leads to another bookof courseI suppose the book will annoy some people in that it deals with a book thatas power over time and space Paradoxes abound How will we survive ow will reality old together in the face
"Of All These Paradoxical Events "all these paradoxical events courseAlright any and I ll spill a spoiler so I ll stop with all that and say not a bad book Readable in my case listenable as I Troys had the audio version with some nice spots I think younger youths might find it enjoyable than older It s a bit simp. To a blur Arriving at Cambridge Falls the children uickly realise there is something different about this place and Kate feels sure sheas seen the dark crooked ouse beforeAs they explore they discover an old empty leather book The moment they touch it an ancient magical.
