Memory can play wonderful tricks on you as you mature. You can find yourself coming back to a loved novel and enjoying it in a fresh and new way. Or you can find yourself noticing flaws in a writing style and novel that you would not have picked up in the past. This is the case with the Erec Rex series of children's fantasy books, books which I had not picked up in several years since the first few enchanted me.

Unfortunately, while reading this I was distracted by the fact that the pacing and en

The more I get into this series the more I like it. Originally I found too many similarities with Harry Potter, but as the series moves along I enjoy the characters more and more and the interesting twists in the plot (though some are a little strange). Erec's quests are always entertaining and this book has a couple of surprises that I didn't see coming as Erec completes his fifth and sixth quests. A lot of fun and perfect for older readers.

book 1- Alecto the Angry
This book begins the next chapter of this series. Erek was in Alypium to complete the 12 quests he need to become the prince of Alypium, he needed to be the evil person that was also competing to be prince. Erek came home to New Jersey or Upper earth as they call it. Bethany has been writing him letter's since he came home and he has not returned any of them. He soon figures out that it was not in fact Bethany writing the letters but the dark prince that had captured her

Erec Rex should be enjoying a relatively trouble-free vacation back with his family. After being involved in several death-defying quests on the path to becoming king, he could use some downtime. But he has nothing to do, and he misses his friends. Especially Bethany. Even if he hasn't figured out if their relationship is still just friends or if it might now be heading for more.

Then Bethany is taken by Baskania. Now Erec is scrambling to complete his next quest, rescue Bethany, and avoid gettin

We begin the next book in the series as Erec Ulysses Rex returns to New Jersey. He had been away for months doing quests to become the next King of Alypium, where magic is known and practiced. Erec has missed his busy adoptive family. He has especially missed his best friend and secret crush Bethany. A stolen kiss has him hesitant to write a response to the letter she has sent him. She is in the castle at Alypium but is having strange urges to go to Baskania. Thanatos Argus Baskani is the Shadow ...more
Erec is faced with a major challenged. In the last installment, he had to rescue his mother and now it is his very good friend Bethany who needs his help. What has really helped this series is that Erec's challenges are all linked with major challenges handed out by Baskania. Erec finds himself the target of blind bigoted hatred and hateful rhetoric as he learns more and more about himself. His new-found knowledge (in the last book) gives way to a secret held by two of his siblings. The two chal ...more

This book raised the stakes for the series. Bethany has been captured by Baskania and Erec's quests become more dangerous with each draw from Al's well. Tons of old faces reappear along with a few new faces(the loyal pirate Griffin).

Most of Kingsley 'big reveals' don't come as a shock to me since I can see them several books away, but this book managed to surprise me a few times. But I did guess that (view spoiler)

Erec rex is a kid that has to go through many tough quests to become king. One of his quests is to meet the night mare king and introduce himself. Later though he realizes that his real quest was to rescue the clown queen wanabelle. He rescues her and then he has to go to the furies. He tries to help them but he dies. He later gets resurrect to come back to life. Then he rescues his friend.
I think the theme of this storie is to never give up hope even when you think

Another series w/ a young boy becoming the hero, this isn't as good as others, such as Fablehaven. The character development is pretty simplistic, w/ emotions and ideas stated in simple sentences instead of being illustrated. It's often amusing to read for the fun of it, although sometimes I get frustrated with the blunt writing. While I read each book, I find myself wondering if I'll pick up the next. Obviously I ended up doing that, but I wouldn't be heartbroken if I hadn't. But perhaps the wr ...more

Well this is a very hard book to explain, but i will try. In the third book in the Erec Rex seires he (Erec Rex) must 1.Save a large asortment of people from a nightmere realm 2.Break his friend out of a fortress full of ever monster imaginable and 3. give up his life to the three furies to save the world from total desrution. Sounds cheery right. This report has been drafted and edited by M.C Squrie.

I was realy impressed by the way Kingsley crafted this story. It was well planned out and fascinating. It was quite long, but I actually enjoyed devouring the pages. My only complaint was that some of the characters seem to be a bit one dimensional and some of the dialogue does not seem realistic. Other than that, I am excited for the next!
The Erec Rex series isn't fascinating or mind-bending, but it isn't dull either. The author has created an interesting Harry Potter-esque world with a villain that is mildly frightening and certainly mysterious. I'm really just reading the series because I like to finish what I start. But if you haven't started, you might as well not. There are much better books out there.

This has to be the tipping point for Erec. At the beginning (first book) he's a little stubborn, shallow, small minded and immature. This is where you see the definite difference in him. He grows up in this one and that's the book where you fall in love with his character.
Zach Querrey
This book was full of adventure. It was action-packed and in some part thirteen year olds, like me, could relate to the main character. I enjoy these books very much and I hope to continue reading this series.

I love when he finally gets into the quests but the build up to them can sometimes be filled with too much talking which at times drags the story out. I took me a bit to get into the book, but like I said once the quest started the story picked up and turned out really good.
I finally finished this book. It was the best installment yet. I loved every minute of it. I never lost interest. There was always something there to keep me at the edge of my seat. I can't wait until the next installment.

This is a great series for young kids who love to read. It started out with a lot of similarities as Harry Potter but has since taken on its own story. I'm not sure how many more will be in the series. Hopefully not too many. It's time to wrap it up in my opinion.

It's a cute book. Very simple and charming in its own way. Erec kind of reminds of Harry Potter, with all his heroism and sarcifice and stuff. Apart from that, the setting is very unique and different.

Saya lemah banget kalau ada orang luar yang pakai setting Indonesia di novelnya. Saya lemah banget! Dan saya suka banget sama misi-misinya di Erec Rex keempat ini. Kenalan sama Raja Mimpi Buruk? KEREEEN! Saya sedang menanti Secret of Ashona :)
