Description

Bobby Pendragon is a seemingly normal fourteen-year-old boy. But there is something very special about Bobby. He is going to save the world.
And not just Earth as we know it. Bobby is swept off to an alternate dimension known as Denduron, a territory ruled by a magical tyrant, and plagued by dangerous revolution.
If Bobby wants to see his family again, he's going to have to accept his role as savior. Because, as he is about to discover, Denduron is only the beginning. . . .

  • (3/5)
    a great beginning adventure story with lots of growth in the main character. Shows promise for the sequals
  • (5/5)
    The first book in the amazing series of pendragon. this book is the first of the mysteries of the travelers and the things that they do.
  • (4/5)
    Good fast read. Great story, and great pace. Now I want the next in the series!
  • (2/5)
    the writing is a bit hamfisted at times with some cartoonish characters and a formulaic, two-dimensional plot. MacHale also seems to have written this story without doing much research into things like warfare and mining and even class divisions and tyranny. it was a all very simplistically laid out without much depth.

    however, it isn't a completely bad read especially for 9-year old boys like my son. i think that kids much older than that might roll their eyes like i did at certain parts but for the younger set, it is something that they can enjoy.

    i won't be reading any more out loud to my son like i did this one but i will continue to support him in reading this series. maybe the writing will get better as the series goes on? who knows.

    The promise in this book is not in the characters or the writing, but in the world-building and the possibility of a strong narrative over several books. Unfortunately, I'm informed by a thirteen-year-old who's read ten of the Pendragon series that this never develops.

    Chinmay J. -This is a great book for people who read and like fantasy. It is like Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl (Some of you may not have heard of that one but its good) combined. It has fast paced action with suspense and a thrilling plot. A bit advanced. This is the first of a ten book series (Yes, I know it sounds exhilarating, but its good). The series is wicked epic.
