Juvenile Fiction - Action & Adventure
Although this was a different genre than I normally read, I enjoyed the not-so-typical storyline. If you like plots with a with a bit of twist and mystery, mixed with eccentric characters, and of course knights and castles, then this may be the book for you. Plus, the cover is amazing! I would absolutely pick it up off the shelf just because it looks like an awesome book.
The story of Thomas and his friends draws you in, and you want to know what their fate will be. This series has potential for great depth and attachment to your favorite characters.
The reason I gave this book a 3 star rating was because I felt like it was incomplete. Almost like starting a movie 30 minutes late, not knowing what happened at the beginning, and leaving before it was over. When I first began reading the book, I actually had to research online to make sure that there wasn't a book written before this one with important information I needed to make parts of this one make sense. There isn't, and so I felt like much of the back story that the main character Thomas is dealing with would have been very interesting to read and know. I'd have loved to know more about his mother, and connect to her first instead of only the bits of memory that we gain from Thomas. The same is said for the knight and the other Immortals. In fact, through the entire book, the reader never quite understands who the Immortals even are.
I know that this is the first in a series, so I have high hopes that once the remainder of the books are available, it will make more sense, and I won't feel like I was left hanging.
