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

A Game of Thrones

AGE RATING: 16+

TEEN RATING: 4.3/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: A Game of Thrones is a captivating novel which draws readers into a world of their own. Bloody, brutal and breathtakingly bold, A Game of Thrones is sure to leave readers in shock and awe. George R.R. Martin has created an incredibly detailed and complex world unlike any other. However, as enjoying as it can be, it is also very offending and and includes very mature themes. Continue reading A Game of Thrones

TEEN OVERVIEW: A simply astounding piece of work from Paolini, the sheer dept of his world putting the majority of the fantasy genre to shame. Eragon had me totally and absolutely glued to the pages, from the very beginning… Continue reading Eragon

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

The Innocent Mage

Teen Rating: Hilariously funny. However strangely (when in comparison with other novels in general) Miller built up the tempo and intensity of the book, only to have the resulting climax in the subsequent novel.  However unorthodox the approach to writing a novel or short story, the lingering uneasy effect it had on me changed over time. I was now fully capable of seeing the whole story for what it was made of and not the route it took. In other words by stepping off the beaten track, Miller as avoided any sense of ‘déjá vu’ by avoiding creating a cliche story line, which would take away from the mastery of her ‘build up’ to the climax and the actual content of her novel. As strange as it sounds, it’s effect actually seems to have worked, for me at least! Does it work for you?     4.7/5      14+ Continue reading The Innocent Mage

Library of Souls

Library of Souls is dabbled with humour, romance and so much more, it has a little bit of something from almost every genre.  12+  4.2/5 Continue reading Library of Souls
