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. Bounding forward in time, on occasion, meaning we lose track of what’s going on in the book and the book’s flow. Rather than being about it’s characters’ journey, Killer T is more about the concept of Gene editing. Great idea, however in my opinion, lacking slightly in it’s implementation.

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

Orangeboy

AGE CATEGORY:  15+

TEEN RATING:  3.4/5 

TEEN OVERVIEW: I was really looking forward to Orangeboy because of all the awards and prizes to it’s name but, unfortunately the book just didn’t do it for me. The character development was insane but the book was at times slightly slow and maybe a tad unrealistic for a start. As well as this it was quite depressing at times and hard to read… Continue reading Orangeboy

The Mandibles

AGE RATING: 12+

TEEN RATING: 3.7/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: The Mandibles follows the story of how one large family navigates an ever-changing America. 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

Nyxia Unleashed

AGE RATING: 4.8/5

TEEN RATING: 10+

TEEN RATING: Nyxia Unleashed picks up right where its predecessor left of. Full of thrill and adventure, Nyxia Unleashed is just as exciting as the first book in the series. It is an exhibition of Scott Reintgen’s phenomenal writing skills and an ability to create a fictional story that seems all too real. Young adult science fiction at its finest, Nyxia Unleashed is a must read for fans of the genre. Continue reading Nyxia Unleashed

Ender’s Game

Teen Rating: An incredibly written story, with plenty of twists and turns along the way. Each to keep us guessing at what the final destination in the grand scheme of things, may actually be. If written differently Ender’s Game could easily have become incredibly boring, forgettable story. Fortunately for us Ender’s Game was a sensational read, leaving you lost for words, deep in thought and wishing for more… Continue reading Ender’s Game
