At stake is not only the tenth and final territory, but all that eve

I have to say that this book was a disappointment compared to the others. It promised me all the answers and I got them...all at once. It was more like they just dumped all the answers into my lap and went "Here you go!" in the first few chapters. Then the rest of the book was just leading up to "The end." There weren't any twists or turns just a straight line to the end of the book. Which I admit is pretty boring. What had led me to love the series was the creativity of it. How you never knew h ...more

When I first began reading the last book in Pendragon series I was skeptical. For some reason all I could think about as I was reading at was the somewhat lame excuse for a plot twist the 8th book had been. However I had loved the nineth and pretty much the rest of them too so why should this one be bad. I don't know. But like I said I was skeptical.

In the very begining all the answers are revealed. My first reaction was why is he doing it all at once...in the beginning of the book. But then I r

This series became a growing disappointment. It is a juvenile series that does not transcend its genre as the best children's and young adult fiction do. With each book, I was increasingly told through the conversation of other characters that the main character Bobby Pendragon was the great hero that his fellow travelers looked to for inspiration and leadership, etc., but I rarely felt it through the narrative, possibly because it was first person. I was told Bobby was growing, but I rarely fel ...more

I jumped into the flumes one last time with high expectations for the Soldiers of Halla and slammed right into a brick wall of dissapointment. After reading the nine previous installments of Pendragon I had high hopes for The Soldiers of Halla - maybe a little too high. I was expecting fast paced, mind boggling adventure, but instead I got slow, repetitive explanations about the origins of the travelers and a ever frustrating search for the Exiles. It was boring. Pendragon is not supposed to be ...more

Ok I don't really like writing reviews (most teenage boys don't)so I would always come up with one excuse or another to skip doing the review... But, this book was so great and well written, that I actually remember thinking, "Boy! I thought Brandon Mull did a great job on 'Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary'!" - PALES in comparison.
Excluding religious texts, "The Soldiers of Halla" was the most well written and GLORIOUS book I have ever read and it will likely be my favorite book for many many ye

I feel … disappointed. I mean – come on, there are TEN books. That's a lot. You'd think it would all be building up to something pretty fepic. But it just DIDN'T!! This one, to me, felt really repetitive and too fast-paced, to the point where it started wandering and was just plain boring.

It was like, DJ MacHale spent all this time adding more and more questions to the series and then … "Oh, crap. It's the last book. I actually have to ex

This book genuinly pissed me off so badly a horrible ending to such a great series! It answers every question in the first fifty pages and I'm pretty sure they made their own religon in this book and I'm pretty sure that means uncle press is god. Plus he flat out tells you he won in the begining of the book. I pre ordered this book and got it to read after I finished cats testing in the seventh grade last year then I let my freind Seth read it after I finshed it he got fifty pages in and said th ...more

Spoiler ALERT!!! If you haven’t read books 1-9 you should!!



The Soldiers of Halla, by D.J. MacHale, in my opinion is one of the best book I have ever read! Bobby Pendragon has been fighting Saint Dane, (For what five years?) and now it all ends. Those travelers that had died have come back (thanks to mysterious forces). One way or another- one of these power houses are going down! But this ENTIRE BOOK SERIES can be a bit confusing, you’ll have to pay a whole bunch of attention to what you are ac

The final book for this series. There were many questions I had going into this book, and it didn't disappoint. Things that had been asked from the beginning were finally answered, and faces that I thought were gone forever were finally back. It was an amazing series that was finally being brought to a close. It was sad, yes, but when the ending arrived, it was absolutely perfect. I can't even begin to explain that how the book ended everything in the most fitting way possible.

There's moments w

Finally, this is it. The conclusion to the Pendragon saga. As usual, we all rush to read each installment and are saddened when it is over. You just can't please everyone.

I was skeptical at the beginning because there were too many religious undertones - guardian angels, heaven, "fallen" angels, spirits, ghosts. This just isn't my cup of tea and wasn't where I expected this series to go. However, after the first few chapters, the feeling changed and I really got into the story. Bobby Pendragon a

OK,I love pendragon and i commend Dj Machale for possessing such an admirable and unique imagination. To have the ability to make up these countless worlds with unique stories and backgrounds is awe-inspring. Yet, reading this book is taking a toll on me. When I started reading the pendragon series, I didnt care too much on the writing style. Yet now, each unneeded sentence and extra word is making me sigh and wish he could just tell WHATEVER IT IS ALREADY. I mean if i had to sum up the writing ...more

Not absolutely terrible - yet neither was it the spectacular conclusion I had been anticipating. It was nice to finally get the answers everyone's been waiting for, but I have to say I didn't like them very much...

* Disclaimer: this review abounds with spoilers!*

...So basically, you try to tell me, Saint Dane and the Travelers are all ancient reincarnated spirits with the powers of gods, and the fate of the universe comes down to uniting an "inherently good" people who obviously haven't been ab

Antonio was dying. “They’re coming,” said Antonio. “Who is” yelled Bobby. “Get out Mark, get everyone out, there is more than we thought.” “What did you see,” Mark yelled. “DADO’s, and there’s thousands of them,” after Antonio said that he died. This is one casualty of the war for Halla but thousands more could happen in this world.
In this tenth and final book of the Pendragon series Bobby the main character has to travel to different worlds to find 70,00

This book delivered exactly what it promised. It gave all the answers and was a satisfying conclusion to the story. However, it just didn't excite me. For the first time in this whole series I wasn't dreading having to go to school or do other things because I just wanted to stay home and read the new Pendragon book. I actually had to force myself to read this. That is because the thing I was most excited for, as I'm sure most people were, was the answers. And they were given right away. And alt ...more

This was a masterful story, probably the best in the ten book series. The theme is that the good of people will defeat their dark sides. We should hope so.

Essentially, the book tells the story of the victory of Bobby Pendragon over his arch enemy, the misguided spirit, Saint Dane. Pendragon represents free will, Dane represents the idea that people need a protector to protect them from themselves.

This is one of the basic arguments of the early disciples of the natural rights dogma, a kind of q

The Soldiers of Halla is a climactic ending to a powerful series full of world jumping and time travel. It begins as Bobby Pendragon and his fellow travelers are together again to learn the secrets of Halla (all that exists in the universe) and their role therein. The power hungry Saint Dane must be stopped before he destroys all that ever was in order to build up his own world built upon negativity and evil. He has already gained control over the territories of Halla with his cult-like Ravinian ...more

The final book of the Pendragon series really lived up to all that I was expecting from it and more. All the loose ends were tied together and all the questions were answered, like who Bobby really is, who are the travelers, why is Bobby engaged in this never-ending battle with Saint Dane, why is he the chosen one etc. It was a very good read! After traveling through space and time Bobby, his friends and all the travelers come together one last time to fight the evil Saint Dane so that his plans ...more

I think the genre is si fi and fiction because in the book they have weapons that are very futuristic and the machines are more helpful than what we have now. They even developed radio cannons to disarm the dados. Another thing I think about is predictions. I think what will happen next is that Bobby will find all the exiles and keep them safe so that he and the other traveler can use their spirit’s power. They even created a flume that depleted most of the power of Solara which saving the exile ...more

This is quite honestly not how I expected this series to end up, and it's not an intriguing ending. It's more like... why?

The series felt dragged out for some time. After the first couple books I was reading it to see how it ended, not because I enjoyed the series. I almost didn't read the last two books because I had so little enthusiasm for them. It's probably because I lost interest in Bobby after book 3 and would have enjoyed the books much better if they were from the perspective of Courtne
