I picked this book because the picture on the cover looked exciting. I liked this book and would read it again. I really liked the scenes where he had to fight things. It is really cool and fun to read.
This is an action-packed adventure. It is a well-crafted page turner that will appeal to teen readers, particularly reluctant readers who need a lot of plot events.
This is an exciting adventure that kept my attention.
It did get confusing at some points.
