Killer T

AGE RATING: 15+

TEEN RATING: 3.8/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: Killer T starts off brilliantly, with a stunning story, perfectly set up to escalate into an insane plot. However, for whatever reason, Muchamore decided to write Killer T in a slightly ‘disjointed’ manner.

Eldest

AGE RATING: 13+

TEEN RATING: 4/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: I personally really enjoyed Eldest, however like many books from the Fantasy Genre, many people would often find certain parts extremely long and so, difficult to ‘bother’ continue reading. However if you do manage to ‘stick-it-out’ until the end, it’s certainly an incredibly rewarding read. The apparent slowness throughout the book only serves in my opinion to increase the importance of the rest of the book and the tension throughout, making it a strength rather than a weakness in my opinion. Definitely one of my favourite series of all time! Continue reading Eldest

The Mandibles

AGE RATING: 12+

TEEN RATING: 3.7/5

The quantity and complexity of real economic terms that she uses alongside her detailed writing creates a very real and genuine setting. The financial terms do get very detailed at point but overall they are very beneficial for the novel. Interesting, detailed and relevant in today’s world, The Mandibles is a very unique book… Continue reading The Mandibles
