"Max Quick: The Pocket and the Pendant" was a fast paced read with lots of action. I was hooked on this book after the first chapter and I had to find out what was going on. Why was time stopped and why weren't Max and Casey affected?! As I got more and more into the book, I just HAD to know why Max was missing his memory and who he really was. If these mysteries aren't enough, there are many more that pop up throughout the book to keep your interest peaked. I would go into more details, but I HATE spoilers in reviews!

Even though the book was fast paced, I wish there had been more character development. I wish Max's quest to find himself had been more of a driving force in this book. There are moments where Max's identity is a top priority, but they are fleeting. It almost feels like there are just too many mysteries happening in one book. This is good for keeping the reader interested, but I like to be a little more connected with my characters. This book almost felt like a complete series, or at least 2/3 of one, because of all the different mysteries that were solved and the number of villains- it kind of reminds me of Spider-Man 3.

"Max Quick: The Pocket and the Pendant" is a combination of sci-fi and adventure that will have readers hooked from start to finish. Fans of Percy Jackson will enjoy Max's quest to learn the mysteries of the Time Pocket as well as his own identity. This book is probably best suited for reluctant readers or readers who enjoy non-stop action, but I think most readers will enjoy "Max Quick: The Pocket and the Pendant".

*I did receive a free ARC of this book for review.
