Christopher, Jalil, April, David, and Senna thought they’d seen it all. Especially after “visiting” Neptune’s watery world and then ultimately finding themselves

Christopher and the EverWorld gang come upon EverWorld’s version of Ireland, complete with telegraphs, electricity, elves, half-elven princesses, giants, and all kinds of stuff that makes them not hate EverWorld for once. But then Senna gets loose and goes crazy, opening the gateway and bringing through her crazy bigoted militia, complete with machine guns. As strange and weird as EverWorld is, it doesn’t stand a chance against guns.

This is one of the best EverWorld books because right away the

I loved it. Loooooved it. These kids are facing war and battle and the effects of it physically and mentally, much like the kids in Animorphs. But unlike the poor Animorphs, these four teenagers manage to become better, stronger versions of who they once were. These are not shattered shells of children; these are tenacious, unstoppable forces who have learned not only how to swing a sword but also about empathy and magic and when to run away and how to lo

Ahhh!! Maybe some of my gushing right now is due to my extra-underwhelming reaction to the Senna & ghostwritten books before this one, but I think Mystify the Magician is literally the best of the entire series so far?? (and it's a Christopher book, omg my bb.) As the penultimate Everworld book, not only does it:
- a) introduce a really cool new setting that displays the rapid effects of Jalil/April/Christopher/David (JACD) on Everworld itself, the possibilities of their leveling the playing

As of the half way point of this book, I am actually holding out hope for things to come together in this book and the next one (the last!!). But reading buddy Julie has just forewarned me that disappointment might be more likely instead…oh boy… (actually, it would not be too surprising, given how much there is left to cover in one final book, not to mention the track record this series has created with me). At any rate, this book at least was anything but a disappointment! It is possibly my fav ...more

Now that the group of human children from our world--Christopher, April, Jalil, David, and Senna--have escaped from Atlantis, they end up in an Irish part of Everworld in the land of Eire. Christopher's love life suddenly improves due to a certain elfin woman, and the city seems a little bit more like what these kids are used to; it's at least got some technological advances. But Senna's got something up her sleeve. She's been recruiting. And not only is she ready to show her real power; she's t ...more
So, remember last book, when I said Applegate should maybe up the stakes a little less gradually?
Well my wishes have been granted because in this one, Senna decides to speed up her plan.

The good point in this is that the pacing picks up quite a lot, we get to see what David & co are made of now that they've spent a few months training with their swords and going through horror after horror… more accurately, of course, we see what they've learned. Christopher, especially, gets to shine, and I

Mystify the Magician, again told in Christopher's point of view, was probably the best book so far in this series. As I've said in other reviews for the series, Christopher is one of my favorite characters, and with this installment, the reader can really see how he's grown as a character throughout the series. He's matured, but has maintained his wit.

This book starts with the crew finding themselves in the Everworld version of Ireland. Yes, Ireland. Complete with faeries and an elven queen. Th

This is book 11 in the Everworld series. I think I like this one the best so far. They've all been great though. This one starts out with Christopher in the mouth of a giant. He is able to escape with much struggle and is helped by a half elf/half human lady named Etain. They are taken to her town which is much like Ireland. Here they find that they have discovered primal forms of technology. Like electricity, cable cars, telegraphs, etc. Christopher soon falls in love with Etain. Everything cru ...more

This one was easily the best of the series. I cannot find anything wrong with it. Christopher has definitely become my favorite narrator. There is a certain heartbreaking tone that he has throughout the novel that is delivered with such humor that endears me to him.

Overall, this was a fantastic book. I feel like the author finally let loose and did what she wanted to in this one, no holds barred. Very happy with this result and when I finished this one, it left me immediately wanting to read the

Mystify the Magician by Katherine Applegate

Why I read it: I am going to see Everworld through, all the way to the end.

Rating: 4/5

What I thought: I actually really liked this one for some reason, not sure why. It wasn’t all that much to do with them going to their equivalent of Ireland, so I think it could have been because it amped up all the action and mild intrigue and just let everyone go to town horrendously on each other. And it worked! Can’t wa

The most dramatic book of the series yet. Christopher's character development has come a long way over the course of the series; it was a shame to see this book end. All that's left now is the finale.

Freshly escaped from Neptune's watery kingdom, Christopher and the others find themselves in Eire, the Everworld version of Ireland. Taken in by the locals, the group finally feel like they've found somewhere safe, but when Senna makes her move and starts importing gun-nuts from the real world thin

A truly brilliant take on mythology. For anyone who has ever been a fan of the religions of yore you'll be enthralled with Applegate's world of aliens and gods. My favorite series when it first came out and still one of my favorite series. The beginning of the first book is a bit difficult to get into, but once you get past that it is simply phenomenal. Applegate creates an entire world within Everworld while drawing enough from our own world so as not to entirely alienate or confuse the audienc ...more

Probably my favorite of the Everworld books. The gang starts using the real world to their advantage, for research purpose, things get really harried in Everworld, things go down in both worlds. It's pretty awesome.

I wish these books would have all been put into one big novel. They are fantastic reads, leaving you begging for more at the end of each story line.
OMG THAT ENDING. this might be my favourite of the series. my heart ached the whole way through. don't want series to end :(

The Everworld series, while fairly basic and elementary, offers such excitement that any Fantasy lover would be hard-pressed not to be drawn into its few pages. This series tells the tale of several teenagers from Earth traveling to a different plane where gods, goddesses, and legends from all of Earth's mythologies are real. Highly recommended read.
I want it.
