The social order is tough and weird.

Finished Book Erik is the main character, and the creator of Cindella. Great story for the gamers, skaters, and snowboarders, as most of the action revolves around airboards and the rebel kids who use them to defy the dictatorial government of the queen.

As Cindella, too – it’s interesting to see him her?

Book Review: Epic by Conor Kostick

Interesting, but nothing revolutionary. Open Preview See a Problem? This book was a quick conro. Wasn’t as big of a fan of this book as I was the first in the series.

Feb 25, Steve rated it it was ok Shelves: It held the same tone throughout the book, which ended up actually kind of boring.


Having picked the first one, Epicoff my son’s bookshelf a while back, I enjoyed it and thought it was a lot better than the far too generic stuff we were fed as kids, bu This was a relatively easy, quick read, but – at least for me – it didn’t capture the magic or maintain the momentum found in the predecessor, Epic.

Again, the rating reflects the genre. Ghost is an airboarder and member of a small punk gang made up mostly of red cards, though Ghost herself has no card and no official identity. Yet the book remains first and foremost an attention-grabbing, action tale in the new genre that might be called ‘cyber-fiction’.

The story itself was good, and the characters were interesting. Likewise when all the former players from Epic come to Saga, they have no idea that it isn’t really a game this leads to killing of innocent people who they assume will simply come back for the next person. Eagerly awaiting a sequel. Looking for beautiful books? This novel is a complete stand alone novel from the first.

Sep 09, Samantha rated it liked it. A game created by unknown people to be fun and exciting that now has turned into a monotonous cycle for most. Central Allocations, a small group of people in charge of all the decisions, controls everything.

Cindella could kill the Queen of Saga, but in doing so would have to kill two million of her people simultaneously. Unfortunately, and it may have been because I had expected so much from it and that is my disclaimerI felt extremely let down.

One of my least favorite parts was view spoiler [ the fight with the dragon i thought i lacked the excitement it should have and it didn’t seem to be written as well as the other parts of the book. May 04, Andrew rated it it was amazing. Earth was torn apart by violence, so New Earth settlers brought one rule: Th Ksotick is the second in the Avatar Chronicles, the sequel to Epic. The main characters of the novel, however, lack the ability to be relatable.


Book ratings by Goodreads. The book deals with topics in its stride such as Sociology of a populace that uses a RPG game to determine all facets of its society. But overall, Epic is a good, solid book. This is a fantasy novel which, while retaining many of the stock elements of the genre dragon slaying, a magic ring, cataclysmic battles, treasure chests, fearsome weapons, inter aliamoves well beyond these conventional bits and pieces to allow for the incorporation of a challenging intellectual dimension.

But then the battle came, and it was so easy, it had no sense of danger at all.

Will totally appeal to video gamers, goths, punks, guys, and other fans of Cory Doctorow’s “Little Brother”. Erik and his friends agree to play together against the Committee, hoping to win to destroy them. Erik is frustrated both with the game and with his father, Harald, who refuses to play.

This was a relatively easy, quick read, but – at least for me – it didn’t capture the magic or maintain the momentum found in the predecessor, Epic. Especially if they are interested in Sci-Fi.

The Best Books of Mar 31, Ben rated it did not like it. There is also a sequel called SAGA that has already been released.
