I have read the first two books in this series, The Emerald Atlas and The Fire Chronicle. Here is what I like:
Yes, I know that you are not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but the spine of the first book was the whole reason I decided to borrow it from the library. By the way, I judge books by their covers all the time, and it usually works out.
I love time travel and the paradoxes and problems that it creates. Sometimes I get a little too caught up in it, trying to figure out how everything fits together. These books were no exception.
The siblings are so well-written. I especially like the middle child, the only brother, Michael. I love his obsession with dwarves and how he thinks that elves are overrated. It is such a fun detail. The characters in these books have full personalities that grab your attention and make you care.
Have you read these books?
What did you think?
Personally, I can't wait to read the third book!
