This book is like a cross between the Percy Jackson and Harry Potter series. It talks about "Juju" or magic and it reminds me of Percy because Percy at the beginning of the series was clueless. The main character, Sunny, also goes through it. This is a very good read.

A detailed and unusual take on an old fairy tale (East o' the Sun, West o' the Moon), this Beauty and the Beast story takes place in Northern Europe. A young girl named Rose is born into a superstitious and overprotective family of farmers; however her adventurous spirit constantly unnerves her mother and siblings. Her father is the only one who seems to understand her wanderlust. Rose masters the art of weaving and spends most of her time walking in the woods or creating beautiful cloaks and dresses. Although her family constantly fears for her safety, she always manages to come home safe and sound until the day when a large Polar Bear saves her life and later returns to Rose's house to warn her family of an upcoming disaster. The family can move to safety with his protection if they agree to let Rose go and live with him in his mountain home. After much argument, Rose convinces her family to let her go. While living with the bear, old curses and magical beings that seemed to be mere stories unveil themselves as truth, and Rose begins a journey that leads her to the realization of where she actually belongs, and to whom her heart belongs. Told from the viewpoints of many characters (each chapter is a different person speaking!), this book is touching and hard to put down. By the end, the characters are like old friends, and the readers wish that the book wasn't over! A Must-Read!

I have read the whole Harry Potter series five times and I am a Harry Potter nerd. This book is by far the best in the series in my opinion. It is the second most action-packed book in this series. I really disliked the part where a certain main character dies.

This book is about a boy named Tom Ward. He is the seventh son of the seventh son. in other words he is considered to be magical. His father finds a job for each of his sons and it is finally Tom's time. His father talks to the "spook" and gets Tom to be the "spook's" apprentice. THe Spook tells Tom's dad that he will give Tom a month trail and then decide whether or not he is good for the job. To find out what happens to TOm, read this awesome book. If you get nightmares easily then i wouldn't recommend reading this book after dark or at all. That is your choice however. It was one of the best books that i have read. Thanks for reading my review!

The Alchemyst is about two teenage twins who become trapped in a whole new world. They have witnessed magic and will never be able to go back to their normal lives. The book is a little slow in the beginning but it starts becoming more interesting and exciting as you begin to wonder what will happen next, which is always unexpected and unpredictable.

The Emperor of Nihon-Ja is a great read. The book is action packed and you can never stop reading. The book is about when there is a revolt in the country of Nihon-Ja and Halt, Will, Alyssa, Horace and Evanlyn get caught in the middle of it. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes action packed thrillers.

This book was beyond amazing!! It is a long twisting tale about a young girl and a vampire. Don't be intimidated about its size (498 pg.) because you'll be unable to put it down until you're done with the book. It seems like you could read it forever and not get bored with it. I didn't want to give it up when I was finished!!!

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister was exactly what I would have expected of Maguire; a talented piece of writing expressing a unique P.O.V. and twist in the ending. What I liked was how not everyone was ‘pretty’ or ‘ugly,’ but interesting and plain too. I loved the description of arts and the strange fairy godmother. I didn’t like how the sister would defend her mother in a way very out of character for her, and also the twisted romance that just didn’t support the plot that well, though I may be being biased. I cried many a time; a good single-read book. I wouldn’t read it again though.

This is a good book but starts a little slow. It is telling two separate stories of two different kids and it is confusing until their stories merge. Then the book takes off and it is very unpredictable and suspenseful.

This book was very fast-paced. It ended up leaving out some details in doing so, but it kept me on my toes. One should read the first three books in the series before reading this one. If not, it will be a very confusing story. The story kept me guessing what would happen right until the end. The Pendragon series has a very unique style of expressing the story to the reader. This book was very fun to read, though it might seem a little fast for some people.

Torball and Other Lands is a collection of short stories written by Tamora Pierce. Some of the stories have the same main characters as her other books, and some are completely new. I liked this book, because it wraps up some loose ends from her other books, and it has a lot of good, inspiring fantasy stories, which are hard to come by these days.
