I love this
Best book I’ve ever read
By Audra E.
Normally, it’s a tough choice for a favorite book. This book beats them by a landslide. I laugh out loud on every page. I started reading in 6th grade and I still go back and re-read it in high school.
This is a great good and a great series! It has a very good storyline and many shocking twisters, keeping you engaged and exited the whole way through.
A lot of people say that it’s like Harry Potter. I can see that but it’s definitely different. And I’ve read the Harry Potter books 7 times each. Stop hating on this book it’s really good. Read it crazy twist great characters too.
I just LOVE this series it’s amazing!!! I definitely would recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!
This is NOT a Harry Potter rip off!
Yes, I’m talking to you, multiple reviewers who thought it was like a sad version of Harry Potter (so untrue)! Although I must admit it has many similar general aspects, there are many unique twists and turns with the overarching plot between all the books. The characters aren’t as relatable mostly because the authors wanted to move away from the classic fairytale black and white hero and villain stereotypes. The authors were bold and creative in the whole series with a strange and unique look on living up to expectations, vs seeking what you want to do and finding your identity. Being big fans of Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, I loved the much more kid friendly series. Now why are you still here! Go read it!
Best book series I’ve read so far
Best book ever so much suspense, action, twists, and turns I highly recommend this to young readers
A thrilling coming-of-age story. (NO SPOILERS!!!)
By Miku 02
A beautiful twist on your average fantasy. Perfect for children of ages alike! Lovely characters anyone can enjoy reading about, and I love that the characters progress along with the plot—just WONDERFUL!!!
Only problem is I can't seem to put it down....
I bought the book after seeing the AMAZING cover and enjoyed it very much. The plot is wonderful, in my opinion. I absolutely ADORE the characters and their individual stories. One of the best books I've read. I'm very into the magic thing. QUEEN SLAY! I would recommend this book to many people. I even did my Summer Reading project on it. So excited for the rest of the series. (Oh, and I've bought The Copper Gauntlet too!)
I really liked this book. Although a lot of people say that it is a copy of Harry Potter it isn't. Although it does have the whole two boys and one girl thing and the main bad guy would like nothing more than to kill the main character. Every one is using this as an excuse to hate on the book. In my opinion the book is different in its own way and it has its own storyline that is so much more different than most of the other magic books out there.
