Pendragon series

by Kylie J


Ok, has anyone heard of the Pendragon series? It's AWESOME! I am not kidding, after I read the first one I was like, "ohmigod is there any more?" As it turns out, there are going to be 10 total, but only 5 have come out so far (in order: The Merchant of Death, The Lost City of Faar, The Never War, The Reality Bug, and Black Water). Not that I'm complaining.

They're probably classified as fantasy, with a little sci-fi like time traveling, although it's not really time traveling, it's traveling to different "worlds" (territories). It follows the course of Bobby Pendragon's adventures. He's a 15 year old who just found out he's a "traveler" (he can flume to different territories). The catch is, as he visits each territory, it's on the verge of a great turning point, which could either help the territory or set all hell lose. Bobby's job is to ensure the territory remains protected during the turning point, but his nemesis, St. Dane, is there to ensure the opposite. Even if the plot sounds simple, I assure you, it's not.

D.J. MacHale totally puts his mind into that of his fictional 15-year-old hero, so teens' intelligence is the last thing insulted in this series. It's got humor, adventure, mystery, and a little romance.

What more could you want?

Meh. I only read the first and I didn't like the guy's writing style much. The story was good I suppose...

I love these books! They're really good and I've read all 5 so far. My mother has also and she's even liked them. It's cool that D. J. MacHale actually writes back, that's really nice. I might even try writing him some time.

Oh yeah, I wrote to DJ MacHale too! You're right, not only do we get replies, but they're personal. I told him I want to be a writer and his response was encouraging.

I really liked the second one. Mesh, I'm stealing your copy of the fifth once you finish. I have to read it!

What's REALLY cool is that if you go to the website, you can email the author. I've done so twice, and he wrote back both times! It was really awesome. He gave me a few tips on writing. :)

Haha, yes, addictive, aren't they?

I'd say my favorite is The Lost City of Faar (#2), probably because I'd love to flume to Cloral any day now, but The Never War (#3) and Black Water (#5) are close runner-ups!
