When I read it, I knew it was one of the best books I had ever read because half of the book is a comic. If I were to recommend this book to someone, I would recommend it to a child over the age of ten, because it is very intense and kind of twisted. I hope you find my review to be interesting and if you want, the second book in the series, Havoc, was just released.

I enjoyed this book as it got closer to the climax because in the beginning it was very boring and slow. My opinion of this book would be good because it was very interesting. I recommend this book to people who can read long books because this book is quite lengthy. Also, I recommend this book to people how like classical or science fiction stories because this book can be considered both.

I loved this book because it was filled with non-stop suspense. Although the book took course over three days, the events were described with a lot of detail. The Warlock was also unpredictable at times, with various twists. I knew that Josh did not trust the Flamels. However, I always thought that he would stick by their side and fight against Dee because of his sister. But now, he thinks that Sophie is an enemy and goes to Dee’s side. I was certainly not expecting this. The twins were always so close. But now, their bond is severed and the future of the world is at stake. The book ended with a cliff-hanger with a very, very unexpected ending. I can’t wait until the Summer of 2012 when the final book, The Enchantress, is released!

Along the bears' whole journey, new friendships are made, old ones are strengthened, and the four bears learn to trust each other and work as a team.
I would recommend this book for animal lovers and people who have read the Warriors series, also by Erin Hunter. I would also recommend that you read the first five books of the Seekers series first, otherwise there might be some parts that you won't understand. This was a great book, and I was enthralled up to the very last sentence.

But Number Four is constantly moving and changing his name. His guardian's name is Henri, and Henri is the one who makes sure Number Four (also known as John Smith) is safe and travels with John. John wants to live a normal life but it is hard to because he has super powers. Once he develops his legacy, he is able to control light and do other things he never knew he could do. It is hard for him to pretend to be a normal teenager because his hands glow when he becomes too emotional about anything. In one of his schools, there is a bully who gets John upset and John's hands glow. Throughout this story, John struggles to stay alive and yet pretend to be a normal teenager. Constantly moving, it is impossible for Number Four to make friends. Until now, when he meets Sam (a nerdy boy) and Sarah. His new relationships make the thought of leaving very difficult. And now, that his legacies are starting to develop, it's becoming harder to keep his true identity a secret. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to reading a Science Fiction book that has aliens in it.

I would recommend this book to teenagers and adults who have a good sense of the game of basketball, because there are times in the book when players talk about "picks and rolls" and "give and go's", and these sayings to someone who doesn't understand baskeball could cause confusion and affect their full comprehension of understanding this book. Anyone who enjoys basketball and just loves the game should most certainly read this book.

Amelia is an average girl living with her brother and his wife in Broken Tooth, Maine. After a series of arguments, they decide to send her to live with her cousin Zora Stewart in Baltimore. The glamour and charm of Baltimore enchant Amelia. Then she discovers her strange ability to see the future, but only at sunset. At first her powers are fun and harmless, but she then sees darker and more lethal things. Amelia is also in love with a painter named Nathaniel who has an ability of his own.
On a scale of 1-10 I would rate this book a 5. The language clouded meaning and the plot was at many times dull. If you want to read historical fiction I would recommend you read a book like I was Jane Austen’s Best Friend.

This book was a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that kept on the edge. I enjoyed the non-stop action, and the overall plot of the book. It was an interesting read, different from the book I usually read. The subplots of friendship and love contributed to the main plot of the book – the game. I enjoyed reading it and recommend this book to anyone who likes action.

I highly recommend this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat with the new twists and turns that appeared one after the other. I was extremely eager to find out the fate that awaited Bianca and Lucas. With Lucas having nightmares and struggling to keep his hunger under control and Bianca learning about her new amazing powers, they are both still determined to stay together. Although somewhere in my heart I knew that they would have their happily ever after in the end, I was still interested to find out how they managed to achieve their desires. I thought that the whole plot was extremely creative, with vampires and wraiths in the story. I also loved the displays of love shown in the book. Although losing their loved ones can drive them to hatred, some of them still managed to regain their sanity in the end, as shown in the book. Even after all of the troubles that Bianca and Lucas had to face and their insecurities, their determination to stay together never wavers in their heart. Overall, I extremely loved this book. However, I recommend that you read the first book, Evernight, before getting a jump start on the series. I guarantee that you won't regret reading the books!

They were planning their biggest robbery that night and were going to be set for a good chunk of their lives if they were successful. The beginning of the robbery seemed pretty successful, until they split up. Many men in dark black suits showed up and halted Alex and Toby. At first they looked like police, but then they soon realized that men who had guns with silencers weren’t part of the police forces. The men in black had very intimidating expressions. A very tiny man in a gas mask appeared and pointed at Toby. Almost immediately, Toby was shot dead, leaving Alex without a best friend and framed for murder. The next morning he was caught and sentenced to life in prison Furnace, the maximum security prison. The men in black appeared again, and they turned out to be the prison guards of the Furnace. Why would prison guards frame innocent teenagers for murder?
Arriving at the prison with 3 others also framed for murder, Alex had made some friends. As he entered the underground prison, despair begins to sink into his brain. He realizes that there is no chance of escaping underground. When he is transported underground, he meets the skulls. They are a ruthless gang during the summer of slaughter that would kill you even if you looked at them funny. The warden introduces himself, and his face is deformed. You can’t stare at his eyes. Alex is soon introduced to his cell, and he has a roommate-Donovan. Donovan soon becomes Alex’s best friend in prison. The prison however, is no ordinary prison. Strange tests happen in the prison, and people get killed in these test. At night when lights are flashing red in the covers, you have a chance of getting taken to be experimented on. These tests are cruel changing you into an inhuman form and making you a mutant.
There are also many strange creatures in this prison such as the scrawny figures in gas masks and oxygen tanks, the men in black suits with super human strength, skinless dogs ready to attack you in an instant and mutant human taken for experiments. At any time they can take you and you just have to just hope they don’t. Every day, the prisoners have to do chores, including shoveling tunnels, cleaning toilets, laundry, and cooking. As Alex is shoveling tunnel, he noticed a glimpse of bright light coming from inside a doorway, and the smell of fresh air. The prisoners are about a mile underground, so how could there be light and air? Alex soon finds out that this is the only means of escape, and he needs all the help he can get from the prisoners if he ever wants to see sunlight again.
I liked the book because it gave me a feel about what life was like in prison. Every chapter made me want to read more, and this is a great book for those who like action. Some parts i didn't like, however. I didn't like all the cruel deaths of the prisoners, and the images formed in my mind were disturbing, but overall, this was an amazing read, and i would like to coninue reading more books in the series.

I would not recommend this book to another middle school student. It was too slow and unexciting for me and the way the author talks is confusing. It is not one of the better books that I have read and I think the author could have made it more interesting and faster paced. I liked the idea but not the plot.
