  1. Ooh, not a bad book. Action packed, fast paced, and an interesting plot line. Still, I wouldn’t choose it for Newbery, but I would suggest it for a good read. Little confused in the beginning(sequel), but it was understandable soon after. Characters: didn’t change too much, though evil wizard guy is unveiled, and the kids discover he is misleading him, but he was always like that, so none of the characters really changed… Writing was compelling, which is why I listed this as a fun/good read. Nicely created plot, but I’ve seen better.

  2. I also found that the book was confusing at the beginning, but after a while I could tell what was happening. This was a King Arthur comes back kind of book, but I liked how the main character didn’t completely follow the old King Arthur’s path. There was a lot of action in the book and that made it interesting. I really enjoyed reading this book, but as to whether it’s Newbery, I’m not sure yet.
