Jalil, David, April, and Chris still haven’t found Senna. They still haven’t found their way out of Everworld. And—though they have managed to stay alive—things

Ahhhhh, finally I feel like this series is hitting its stride! April's internal voice doesn't stand out as much as the cast did in Animorphs -- I, also, thought this book was narrated by Jalil at first, until I remembered it was the Arthurian book. But this was one of my favourites of the series and that I remembered best, mainly due to pre-teen/early teen Julie's ENORMOUS HORRENDOUS CRUSH ON GALAHAD. Like, straight-up, I was in love with him and shipped Galahad/April SO SO SO MUCH and (view ...more

So if this book sucked as well, I was ready to give up on Project EverWorld. And yes, the writing was surprisingly bad and juvenile, which I can’t even comprehend, because this is K.A. fucking Applegate who wrote beautifully the first half of the Animorphs series, so I can’t fathom why there are so many punctuation mistakes in this book.

This book is told from April’s point of view, a horny wannabe actress who hates being a girl because it makes her weaker than the boys, and who wants nothing

Despite the fact that for the first page, page and a half or so I thought for sure this was going to be a book narrated by Jalil (surprise, it’s April!), I feel like Ms. Applegate really hit her Everworld stride with Enter the Enchanted. All the pieces, the world-building has shaped up and connected enough that it is finally able to take a back seat to the real deal, the harrowing nature of living in Everworld and having to run from or confront (or both!) all the dangers mundane and magical as ...more

I was expecting this book to be from Jalil's point of view, but it was not. However, April's POV wasn't terrible. It was better than David's. I don't even dislike David as a character, but I don't care for his perspective as much as the others'.

I feel like I'm going to say this for every Everworld book, but I wish this had more room for emotional depth. I suppose the lack of processing and description can come from the fact that the action happens so quickly - and the fact that YA has changed

Currently doing a re-read on this (last read was in HS). Unfortunately, it's not holding up the test of time. Nostalgia wise, it's still what got me through a lot of BS when I was younger, so I still liked it. Adult me just doesn't like it much anymore.

All of the books have cliff hanger endings, which makes me almost have to continue, even if i don't really want to. But again, they are all fast reads.

In the third novel Christopher, David, Jalil and April, learn that maybe they are not all there by accident, and also Senna has magical powers, and can monipulate their minds and feelings.
In this book they encounter Merlin, a second time, the encouter him the first time towards the end of the second book. They try to get help from Merlin, to find

Out of the three books in this series I've read, this is probably my favorite, which is probably attributed to the introduction of characters from Arthurian legend and the female perspective absent from the first two books. Just as fast-paced and action-filled as the others, the co-mingling of Norse mythology and legends of King Arthur are intriguing, and leave me interested in what happens next in the series.

This is the first book I read from the Everworld Series (even if it was the third of the series) and it is literally, my most treasured book, because before it, I never read. I hated reading. I didn't see any good in it. I read this book, like, too many times to count when I realized reading was good and got all the other books. So to me, this book, is not just good. It's sacred. (And it made me cry)

Oh, now April's telling the story. Yes, it makes perfect sense to stick your head and shoulders into your bathroom in another universe by inserting your body into your half-sister's stomach. This series is weird, man. I like how April's all obsessed with Rent.

So far this series has been pretty grim, and this book was no less gory, intense, or terrifying than its predecessors, but it is the first time we get a subplot with some elements that are genuinely fun—most of which are centered around the crush that April more or less immediately develops on Galahad, and the differing expectations that each of them has regarding their situation:

Enter the Enchanged is where the series really hits its stride. The story moves past exposition and hapless survival as the kids learn to apply their "real world" knowledge and abilities to affect events in Everworld. We get an overarching goal (not just to escape, but to save Everworld from the god-eater Ka Anor) and a look at the redeeming qualities of Everworld through getting to know Arthurian legends Merlin and Galahad. April's (warranted) feminine disapproval of the other characters' ...more

Note: I find these books extremely hard to rate and review, so please keep in mind that the ratings I’m attributing are not really equivalent with my usual ones, nor accurate with how pleasant a read it’s being.

Argh writing reviews for these books is getting harder than I was expecting, I don't know what to say.

I'm still enjoying it and the characters are starting to take form, so is the plot.

Once again I really liked the historical/mythological part of it.

It is interesting how this series is told from a different perspective in each book. You see how the different characters are handling being in Everworld. About as good as the second book, but the conclusion of this novel has me excited for the next one.

Fun fluff.
Book three helps to explain the ongoing fight in Everworld, as well as provide clarity of why Senna was pulled into Everworld in the first place. We get a glimpse into who else may have crossed into Everworld besides the old gods (Knights of the Round Table, anyone?) and more insight into the politics that exist between the various cultures. I also love that the characters are starting to figure out how they can use their real world knowledge to give them an advantage in Everworld. While this ...more

The important facts:

There are four main characters, David, Christopher, Jalil and April
Everything that happens is because of Senna
There is another universe
There are gods in said universe who want them dead

This book is told from the point of view of April O’Brien, Senna’s half-sister. A father is about the only thing they have in common. While April is open and friendly and popular, Senna is mysterious and a little scary.

My first issue is (and I’m sure I’m not alone in this): Why do they have

Edit: Reading this book as an adult compared to a high schooler, or even young adult in my twenties results in a different opinion. Everworld is still one of my favorite series and I love its plot, world building, and (most) of the characters. However, I had it rated at 5 stars and after this reading I decided to knock it down to 4 stars. Because I've read a lot more over the years and it's not the crème of the crop, but still good.

The main Characters of this book are David, Chris, Senna, Jalil, and April. David is heroic, brave and even a little dumb, while Jalil is logical, smart, and very neat. Then their is Christopher, he is funny, light hearted, and even dumber than David. Senna is literally a witch, I don't mean metaphorically. She is also very cunning and scary. Then their is April she is very kind, reasonable and level headed. The Setting of this story is earth and Everworld. The setting switches because

Book III of Everworld, told from April's point of view.

So we have Vikings...Norse Gods...giant wolves...heart-eating Aztecs...why not add the Knights of King Arthur's Round Table?? This book introduces us to some of the more "human" members of Everworld. We learn more about Merlin, Galahad, Gawain, and the other grail-seeking Knights.

When Battle approaches over Senna, April, Jalil, David and Christopher have to decide if they want to fight, and if so, who they are fighting for. Even though

April, Jalil, Christopher, and David are still stuck in Everworld, trying to find April's half-sister Senna and figure out how to get home. But now they're being attacked by Merlin, and have to join forces with King Arthur and his knights. They find that Senna is considered a witch here in Everworld, that she possesses a gateway between worlds, and that several parties in this new dimension want to control her. And meanwhile, April is getting to think Sir Galahad is awfully cute. . . .

Enter the Enchanted, by Katherine Alice Applegate was an okay book for teenagers and I would say that if you were to read it, it might interest you. This book is about four people and they are Jalil, David, April, and Chris who find themselves stuck and unable to leave Everworld, since they don't know the route to leave. I find Everworld as a place where it is different from the real world and is mixed with danger. I find this book just to be like some scary books mixed with a little of the ...more

It's nice to have a woman's perspective as we get to hear from April in book 3. The plot thickens as Senna reappears, and we get a few more pieces of what's going on. The group goes from wandering to having a purpose, but they are splintering slowly. I love the dynamics and character development brought out in this book. Looking forward to book 4!

This is book 3 in the Everworld series. In this book April is the narrator of the story. April is Senna step sister. Senna is a child from April dads affair. But yet they get along just fine before all this madness begin.
