A World Without Heroes

A World Without Heroes - Brandon Mull This is a fun MG/YA book for both boys and girls. As the character is only 13 years of age, I don't think it would appeal to the older YA crowd. This is a great introduction to fantasy for the younger set and even though it is 464 pages, I think they will have fun with a young kid besting several warriors and journeying on a quest with Jason and Rachel. Not only do they have to solve a puzzle in the form of a magical word, they have to learn who to trust and how to trust each other. Plus, Jason is from CO, which is a big plus in my book. ;)

Not only was there constant struggle and adventure to keep your interest, but there was also a twist ending for this book. One that I quite enjoyed. The villan is not predictable and easy to read as in some MG/YA books and that is what I loved about it. Unfortunately, it is a cliffhanger! *shakes fist* So, I warn you, if you read this book, you will want to know what happens next.

I give this book 4 stars. I recommend it to young readers of adventure.
