Damn, I forgot that happened in the end! I’m so confused still as to why they have these “powers.” Lol

This one was amazing. I loved learning more about where Loor came from and actually seeing how the society there functioned. One of my favorite things about the series is seeing all the different worlds and the societies that exist in each one.

Bobby grows so much in this book, from his humbling experience towards the beginning to him training to be more physically capable.

The last probably 50 or so pages were the biggest mind-fuck ever. So much happened and so much was set up for the next book a

Bobby Pendragon's pursuit of the evil Saint Dane leads him into the dangerous territory of Zadaa, which is locked in a civil war between two rival tribes.
This story takes place mainly on a territory called Zadaa. There will be two main tribes here: The Rokador and the Batu. The Rokador live in tunnels underground and are fair-skinned, while the Batu are dark-skinned and live in a sunbathed city called Xhaxhu in the desert. For years, the Rokador have relied on the Batu to protect them from othe

I don't even know if I have words for the amount of plot twists that happened in this book. It helped that I didn't really remember very much about the events in Zadaa from back when I originally read this series.

This book was wild from start to finish. So much new information is revealed, Saint Dane losing control of his temper is terrifying, and let's just say I am terrified for what the rest of this series holds.

The couple I began to ship in the last book; oh man that's still a thing. They w

How is it possible that every single book in this series is so amazing?! I adore every page!
In this book, Bobby is on Loor's home territory of Zadaa, and there is a war looming between two tribes, the surface warriors of the Batu and the underground city of the Rokador. A terrible drought threatens both their civilizations, but the Batu think the Rokador are controlling the underground river sources and holding all the water for themselves.
Bobby and Loor are caught in the middle of espionage and

This is a great book I have to say. What I loved about it is how intense it gets at parts. Some parts its really mellow. I love the way the author presents the feelings between Bobby and Loor. You know something is going to spark their relationship, but you don't know what or when.

My favorite part of this book is when Bobby wants to learn to train to defend himself. I love the way Alder (a traveler from a different territory), Loor, and Loor's actolyte smack Bobby around. He has to earn his f
