The Never War Book Review
After searching for The Lost City of Faar, Bobby Pendragon and Spader go to First Earth, while Bobby's two best friends, Mark and Courtney, read his journals. First Earth is New York but in 1937. In 1937 there were gangsters, more subway stations were running, and the culture was different. In First Earth, they meet another traveller who's name is Gunny. They soon learn that Bobby's nemesis, Saint Dane, is at it again. Bobby, Spader and Gunny get into some trouble with gangsters. In order to keep New York existing in the past, present and future, they must keep history they way it was meant to be.
This book is the third in the Pendragon Series. Bobby is an adventurous, dynamic character who is willing to take risks to help others. Spader is an enthusiastic foil boy from the territory called Cloral. Gunny is a self controlled character who works as a bell hop in the Manhattan Tower Hotel. I think Gunny and Uncle Press have a very similar personality because they can both stay calm during a crisis. This book has a lot of cliff hangers and relation to history which I love. My opinion is that this is the best book from the series so far. D.J. Machale is the author of this book and I think the way he sets up the cliffhangers is marvellous. That is what I find keeps people hooked to the books. I believe book three of the ten book series has more action and adventure then book 1 and 2. I think people my age and older would love these books. Kids my age, especially love books with action and adventure in them. The feeling I had most of the time in the book was suspense. Since D.J. Machale is fantastic at creating the cliffhangers in the book, I was hooked from beginning to end. This book had a great way to relating the book to 1937 New York history which I found very interesting and entertaining. Overall this book is intense. The Never War is full of cliffhangers, suspense, action, and intensity. I would recommend this book to everyone age thirteen and up.
