I was worried that I would be missing huge plot lines beginning with book #3 the Rise of Mallory but I was wrong. Everville 3: The Rise of Mallory reads like a separate novel with small references to the past but nothing that prevents the reader from fully grasping the storyline.

I enjoyed this book immensely. It is action packed with well developed characters who were easy to love or hate equally. Each character is clearly defined. I was quickly absorbed in the plot rooting for Owen, Zee and Ani

Roy Huff does it again, in a well developed action packed adventure that appeals to the same part of me that loves thrill rides, Halloween, and classic horror movies.
I always like to read a series in order, but this has enough background that it could certainly be read alone.
Descriptions are vivid and the plot well executed in The rise of Mallory.
With alternate realities and monsters, I must confess that they are always the biggest attraction for me.
The cover for this book is amazing, and the s

This is certainly the best book in the series so far. It is action-packed, we get to know a little more about the other realms and new race, the Alarians, which I really enjoyed, they are very unique. The final battle was very thrilling!
The character development in this book is also nicely done, Owen Sage and his friends feel like real persons with their own personalities and problems.
Once again the ending came too soon, so I can't wait to find out what's next for Owen, Zee, Anika and others!

In The Rise of Mallory, the newest book in the Everville series, the epic journey continues with another battle to save Everville and Earth. Truths are revealed about Owen and his friends while more interesting creatures are introduced and the lines between good and evil are blurred. The battle escalates into a breathless climax leaving just enough for readers to anticipate more for future books in the series.

What I enjoyed is Huff's ability to seamlessly tie in the earthly world and then throw

The cover looks so cool and I like this one the best out of all 3. While Owen is looking for the third pillar of truth, Mallory is plotting to rule the world and its surround planes. Talk about ambitious!

So as the race against time is on, Owen must find the third pillar if he were to be successful in saving Everville, and the world from the evil clutches of Mallory.

The ending is pretty good. I wonder if Everville will come back again soon

I was given an ARC by the author and asked for an honest review.

The Rise of Mallory is the third installment of the Everville series (following The First Pillar and The City of Worms). Again, the author has delivered a well-written adventure that makes you want to keep reading and not put the book down. Our hero, Owen Sage, is asked to do something unbelievable to stop an evil plot to take over and destroy Everville residents as well as other species in our and other universes. A well-written pl

I've added it to my reads. And I like the cover too. Looking forward to it.
I got this book for a beta purpose as I got the former parts too. The Rise of Mallory was surely the strongest of the three books. Huff finally depicts his characters and the worlds with detail making them vivid thus bringing them to life. The human characters act more like adults, which is great, since they are that basically already. Overall we get to know the characters better, which is always great. The plot works out nicely too and the open ending was a good choice. I'd say the book is thre ...more

The Rise of Mallory is the third book in the Everville series. It is an incredibly interesting and imaginative read with a fabulous cover! Full of action and adventure with characters that Roy Huff allows his readers to get to know and understand. I absolutely love the characters, Owen, Anika, Zee, the Keepers, and even Mallory. The plot is very well written and pulls you in from the beginning.

Everville 3: The Rise of Mallory by Roy Huff is the third book in the Everville series. It picks up right where book 2 left off with Owen and his friends on Earth preparing for Christmas. The cast in Everville is trying to return to their normal lives as they recover from adventures of the last book as well.

Mallory is now raising a surprisingly powerful dragon that he intends to use for the forces of Them in their fight against The Keepers. Owen and his Everville allies know that they must prep

The saga continues. In this third book in the Everville Series, Owen Sage, the undefeated hero, has to face the evil villain, Mallory, who shows up from the previous book. This time, Mallory is using a powerful dragon to aid the forces of Them and fight the Keepers. It's Owen's job (along with a little help from his friends) to protect the world of Everville from the madness of power-hungry Mallory.

I was fortunate to receive a draft copy of the book which enabled me to be one of the first to read the book. The third book in the Everville Series, a quick pace and well written story that takes the reader deeper into the world of Everville and Owen Sage.
The Rise of Mallory was filled with adventure and a dramatic story line to make this an entertaining read. The character Owen learned more about his own parents involvement and the reason why he was chosen.

Since the last battle in Everville, Mallory, a Fron turned evil, plots to hoard all the power from the element for himself by harnessing the goodwill of the newly hatched dragon, Rathlar, and initiating an inter-universe war between the Alarians and the inhabitants Everville. Owen faces his toughest task yet and struggles to complete it even whilst his friends are being decimated by the Alarians.

I think The Rise of Mallory was better written than the first two (maybe because of experience?). A

The Rise of Mallory is easily the best book in the series so far, and in my eyes a fitting end to all the character’s story. I understand that there is still 1 (at least) book(s) to be written and published but I love the way that this book was concluded and while it’s unusual for me to stop a series half way through to me it has been concluded in the most satisfying way. Even with minor plotlines st

I had a hard time connecting with this title in the Everville series. For one thing, while some reviewers have said that this could be a stand-alone work, I have to disagree. It's been a while since I read the previous books, and I was seriously lost for a good portion of this installment. There were a lot of characters I had difficulty placing, and there are a lot of references to previous plot points that you really are going to need to have fresh in your memory. That made the initial chapters ...more

Everville 3: The Rise of Mallory by Roy Huff is an excellent YA fantasy that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is fast paced, action packed adventure that is hard to put down once you start reading.

The author is a great storyteller, able to bring the story to life. It is easy to put yourself into the tale and follow along as an unseen character. The story is realistic and full of exciting twist and turns in the plot, yet easy to follow along.

Now that I've completed this book, I have looked at some of the other reviews, because I like to compare my thoughts with others. It's hard to know what to add that is different, but I'll do that and come back with a more detailed review. In summary - a great fantasy that introduced me to the world Roy Huff has created - actually two worlds. Full review to come.
Outstanding. As this series progresses the story keeps getting better and better.

With references back to characters and events of the previous books, Everville the Rise of Mallory is a fitting conclusion to the storyline begun in The First Pillar. The stories are best read in sequence though, and the story continues with the Fall of Brackenbone and, hopefully, more to come.

Complex world (and multiverse) building, with fascinating alien species, epic battles, great good and great evil characterize these novels, together with wise understanding of human nature. Arrogance is a

Definitely my favorite book of the series.
I just couldn't put this book down.
There is a lot happening in Everville and on Earth and Owen is going to take you through a long journey to understand the Third Pillar of Truth.
All the little things bugging me in the previous books of the series have disappeared, making this book my absolute favorite.
I love how we don't dig into the characters all that much, but are instead allowed to follow them as they try to understand what is happing. I also like

As always Roy Huff has done an excellent job with this third story in his series. In this third book we find Owen Sage, the hero trying to protect both his world and teh world of Everville from Mallory. If he fails it could mean the destruction of people, animals and other creatures in both worlds. He is not alone in this effort. He has the help of Zee and Anika.

Awesome & original

If you like a writing style that is clear and concise and straight to the point then this series is for you. Longer than a short story but not as long as a ‘normal’ novel this story has no time to waste and get straight into the action.

I really enjoyed the story plot line between the three novels of the series. It definitely takes me to another world.

I love to see authors improving as they write more books. This is definitely the case here. I enjoyed the first & second

I had started this book a while back then put it done. Not because I didn't like it I just didn't have the time to get into like I wanted. But now that I've finished the book I'm glad I did. It followed up right where book two left off and gave some great clarity bout some things I questioned in books 1&2.

I'm waiting on the next book to come out so if anyone knows if there is one PLEASE let me know!! Thanks

A scintillating read!

Epic fantasy is not this reviewer’s preferred genre. But that’s where the negatives end! This is a scintillating read. Fast-paced, thrilling, entertaining. It held me to the end.

It’s a tale with many levels – and very well written. Easy to see why it’s the Readers' Favorite 2014 Young Adult Fantasy Silver Medal Winner!

Great cover, too. They say, never judge a book by its cover…. Well, this one breaks the rule.

Continuing on the journey of Owen in Everville, he is met with a surprise when he realizes that someone close to him appears to him to reveal to him the dangers that arose from the results of the City of Worms.

Everville: The Rise of Mallory by Roy Huff is the third book in the Everville fantasy series written for young adults. There is a lot of backfill, but I recommend reading the books in order to fully understand the epic struggle.

In this book, Owen Sage visits the third Pillar of Truth to learn how to combat Mallory and his dragon, Rathlar. Meanwhile, the other worlds are preparing for a war that could end of the multiverse, their world as the know it.
