Rise of the Evening Star by Brandon Mull (PWBR00180)
Plot or Premise
Kendra and Seth start to receive their training from three experts in how to protect the Preserve.
What I Liked
The three experts and their specializations are pretty cool, all with slightly different skills and personalities. And the finale seems like a solid “Indiana Jones” challenge.
What I Didn’t Like
The book is a lot slower than the first, and while Seth isn’t quite as annoying, the ending reads almost like a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (series of chambers, different puzzles) and the main protagonist, Kendra, is relatively an observer for most of it while others do the heavy lifting.
