This was enjoyable but not the best It s hard not to compare this to Chima s other series which is PHENOMENAL andstrictly fantasy than a mix of fantasy and urban fantasy I liked the characters but felt like they lacked depth and development Jack did grow and change a bit, but not a ton in the area of character It was also pretty predictable but I kind of expected that I really enjoyed the overall plot it was different than anything I ve ever read and I loved that about it Ultimatel This was enjoyable but not the best It s hard not to compare this to Chima s other series which is PHENOMENAL andstrictly fantasy than a mix of fantasy and urban fantasy I liked the characters but felt like they lacked depth and development Jack did grow and change a bit, but not a ton in the area of character It was also pretty predictable but I kind of expected that I really enjoyed the overall plot it was different than anything I ve ever read and I loved that about it Ultimately I feel like a lotcould ve been explored, which it probably is in the other books in the series My review islike 3.67 but I ve rounded up because with perspective I have a lot of faith in where this series can go and I m excited to pick up the second book here s my full booktalk discussion My review islike 3.67 but I ve rounded up because with perspective I have a lot of faith in where this series can go and I m excited to pick up the second book here s my full booktalk discussion 3.5 bumped up to a 4, because goodreads is lame and won t give us half stars.

I m re reading this series, and while I enjoyed this book, I m not sure how to describe it.It s not that Chima isn t a good writer, it s just that it seems to me that the plot is better than the storytelling.Does that make sense Ok Well, I guess what I mean is that I minvested in seeing what happens in the end than I am in the characters Sure, they re ok, but nothing about the way the dialogue is written reaches out and grabs me It s a cool story, though Jack finds out that he s a wi I m re reading this series, and while I enjoyed this book, I m not sure how to describe it.It s not

a warrior stone implanted in his chest Long story.Anyway, it turns out, that is just the beginning of his problems I have to admit, even though I d read this already 6 years ago , I couldn t remember the first thing about what was going to happen next I didn t even remember any of the characters It was like reading a brand new book.What can I say Getting older has its perks Would I recommend this one Ehhhh shrugs I wouldn t not recommend itIf you re looking for a decent young adult urban fantasy, then you could do a lot worse An epic battle between good and evilBefore he knew about the Roses,year old Jack lived an unremarkable life in the small Ohio town of Trinity Only the medicine he has to take daily and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from the other high schoolers

possibly killedYou look like a boy who has eaten the fruit of the tree of knowledge and doesn t like the tasteThis is a dangerous world for Warriors as they are trained to be used in a battle to the death much like the roman gladiators were If they win the house they fight for wins control of the land, magical items and the governing counsel, if they lose they die I liked the idea of this magical almost medieval underworld right in the middle of today s society The backstory of why the tournament came to be and the legend of how the guilds were established were new in interesting I enjoyed a shout out to George R.R Martin when they Woke the Dragon hehe Some of the book was predictable, I had already figured out a few of the big reveals long before they happened, especially who the other warrior was But I was surprised by the resolution of the story overall.This is a good book if you like fantasy and don t mind a few lulls to get to the end Fantasy isn t my overall favorite genre so while I liked it, it wasn t the end all be all I will give the next book in the series a read though because I am interested in the world and want to see what happens after the events at the end of the book This is an urban fantasy YA in which magic is kept secret but the various factions of magic users don t work well together, with wizards generally bullying the rest Sixteen year old Jack was supposed to be a Wizard but ended up a Warrior, which is pretty rare and starts causing problems for him.There are a lot of tropes and cliches here, but I still liked it, if that makes sense I loved

building scenes were dry and bland It s like Chima put them in because they were necessary and spent as little time polishing them as possible.The ending was rather deus ex machina I was hoping for something sneakier But overall I really enjoyed it.Now, a word about the audiobook It s BAD It s not the narrator s fault he was fine I blame the sound engineer You can hear the narrator s breathing It s constant Sometimes I thought I heard pages turning There s a two second pause every other sentence for the narrator to breathe On top of that, there s a deliberate three second break in between each track WTH that is also preceded by a loud deep breath It sounds like he s holding his breath So every 3 4 minutes, you hear deep breath silence andsilence in between If the sequels are like this, I m bailing on the audio version A fun ride It was an interesting world and there s nothing like a normal boy isn t normal he s actually an important player in a battle that he must now face in a different world full of magic and warriors story line.My biggest problem with the story was the writing it felt very flat and one dimensional At points it almost felt like I was reading middle grade which is absolutely fine but I would have liked something a bitsophisticated and complex I m also not huge into urban fan A fun ride It was an interesting world and there s nothing like a normal boy
