Follow me through space and time. To other worlds far more wonderful than our own in one of the best adventures there has ever been. Actually, don’t follow me, follow Bobby Pendragon and help save every world, every time, and everything that ever was and will be.
Book 2 out of 10 from the Pendragon series by D.J. MacHale is no less attention grabbing or holding than the first. It is 384(hardcover) of pure adrenaline set on one of the most beautiful worlds I have ever encountered during my reading, Cloral.
Bobby goes from the harsh world of Denduron to the beautiful, water covered world of Cloral. That’s right, Bobby has traveled to a world 100% dominated by water. The people of Cloral have some of the most advanced technologies all made from the water and their society is only a few short notches away from Utopia.
Bobby meets up with a local and quickly becomes friends as he is shown around Cloral. Bobby only has a short time to understand how the territory works before the reason for his being there and the problem is an E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event) Bobby races around with his uncle, a fellow traveler, and his friend from Cloral to find a solution. The resolution is far more spectacular than any could have imagined and hits close to home as part of our own myths help drive the heart of this story.
For those of you who have ever imagined living underwater in perfect safety then this story is for you. I don’t normally condone reading out of order, but if the beautiful world of Cloral catches your interest then definitely give this a read regardless is you have read the first one. For my review on book 1, The Merchant of Death, click here.
With each book the story and Bobby’s struggles become more real and more is put to the stake as the lives of billions rest on Bobby. MacHale’s worlds are perfectly brought to life through Bobby telling his story. Honestly, my being feels everything Bobby feels and more. These books contain so much about life and the quality of life besides your own. They touch more on the human emotion and helps you understand what it actually should mean to be human. Bobby has come to learn so much in such a short amount of time. He has grown extraordinarily as a character with just two books and you can tell that there is much more to learn about Bobby and for Bobby to learn about responsibility and life.
