Book Review: The Dead of Night by Peter Lerangis

The Dead of Night (Cahills Vs. Vespers #3) by Peter Lerangis

Pirate Princess’s Review

DESCRIPTION: ”

The third book in the CAHILLS VS. VESPERS series, the follow up to the worldwide bestseller THE 39 CLUES.

The Vespers have crossed a line. Amy and Dan were devastated when the Vespers kidnapped seven Cahills around the world, holding them hostage until Amy and Dan delivered an impossible ransom. But at least the hostages were Cahills – members of the world’s most powerful family, trained to face all odds.

Now the Vespers have gone too far. They’ve kidnapped Atticus, an innocent 11 year old boy and Dan’s only friend. Now Dan and Amy are in the struggle of their lives. Because if they can’t outwit the Vespers, the unthinkable will happen . . . Atticus will die.”

RATING ~ 5 SWEET STARS!

Dun, dun, dun!((Yeah, you were supposed to say that out loud while playing a bass drum. :P))

The siblings Amy and Dan Cahill return in the 3rd book of the series Cahills Vs. Vespers. Also returning are the brothers Jake and Atticus Rosenbloom, along with the Cahill captives. The main plot in the book? Find Atticus, free him, and figure out what it is that Vesper 1 wants now. Complicated? Just a smidge.

What I love in this book is the plot and character development. The plot is just amazing, and just….Wow. Amy’s character also turns into the Cahill leader that they need in order to save the captives. Something else I enjoyed was that the Dan from The 39 Clues original series showed up a little, which made me smile.

I was seriously wondering if the texts Dan was getting were really from, well, him. Then at the end, we find out and I’m just like: “Whoa, seriously?! Whoa, just…No way!” Yep, just like that.

This book is just the right length for a 8-year-old. Of course, he or she would need to read the original series in order to understand it and not worry about spoilers. Though, they need to be able to handle reading about explosions, captives, and blood. Otherwise, they’ll need to wait until they’re a bit older. If your kid doesn’t like reading, read the first series to him/her, then read this one. By the time you get to the first book in the Cahills Vs. Vespers series, I would think that he or she will be reading them willingly.

5 stars. It’s short, but that’s my opinion because I’m a teenager. It’s the perfect length for younger readers.

5 stars, books are better, book reviews, best in YA books, best YA novels

Recommended to people who read the original 39 Clues series and ages 8-11. If your kid can handle explosions and manage reading about some blood, then this is something you should check out. Also, if you have taken a peek at Rick Riordan’s The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1), you should defiantly check this out.

Book Review: Game Over by James Patterson

Game Over (Daniel X #4) by James Patterson

Pirate Princess’s Review

DESCRIPTION: “When Daniel X discovers that a duo of evil extraterrestrials is plotting to control kids around the world through videogames, he’s determined to take them both out of commission. This pair of wicked game masters wants to destroy the human race by turning brainwashed videogamers into an unstoppable army of doom! They’re also running an endangered species hunting club on the side, and their next target is none other than Daniel. He’ll have no choice but to turn to the aliens’ rebellious son who needs help to stand up to his malicious parents. But can Daniel trust the progeny of this treacherous twosome? Or will it be “Game Over” for the alien hunter?”

Reading level: Ages 8 and up
Hardcover: 255 pages
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

RATING ~ 5 ‘X’-TRAORDINARY STARS!

You think your jobs stinks? Try doing what Daniel X does.Without being paid.

Daniel X, the Alien Hunter, returns in the fourth book of the Daniel X book series. Being a teenage Alien Hunter isn’t easy. Especially when you’re hunting down aliens that hold the ranks 8 and 7 on The List of Outlaws on Terra Firma. What’s Terra Firma? Earth. In this book, Daniel’s adventure takes place in Tokyo, Japan.
This book is action packed, full of thrills, and awesome/funny comments. Want to read some of those awesome comments? Look at the ones below!

“Ahhh!” I yelled, falling to the floor in mock agony. (Well, not exactly “mock.” Those boxes were heavy.)

“I’m so sorry to trouble you, sir,” I said, extracting myself from the pile. “I’ll be on my way, but let me help you with these boxes first.”
The clerk looked momentarily confused, clearly not the cleverest creature to step off a UFO. A good tip to remember: politeness and civility throw a goon every time.

Seriously, I love the Daniel X series and I was not disappointed. Daniel’s a teenager, like me, so I can understand some of his ‘teen issues’. You know, the ones that aren’t caused by aliens trying to kill you while you’re trying to kill them.

This book was a bit shorter than others I’ve read so far this year, but it was totally worth it. As I said before, I ♥ Daniel X. The fact that he was hunting down two alien outlaws at once got me excited, because he hadn’t done that before in the previous three books.

As soon as I finished this book, I got the one that comes after it. There was only one part in the book where I didn’t know exactly how to react. I didn’t know if I should be upset, excited, or what. Want to know what that moment was? When he referred to Maximum Ride. O.0 With how the last book of that series ended, I felt a bit annoyed. But since I loved the first books in the series, I felt a bit excited too. What does that equal? Confused teenager emotions.

Anyways…….I LOVED THE ENDING! It was a bit sad…But it was awesome! 😀 If I add up everything about the book……5 stars. Duh!

5 stars, books are better, book reviews, best in YA books, best YA novels

I recommend to James Patterson fans. If you’ve read at least the first Daniel X book, you can read this one too! But only after you’ve read the previous two books! If you’ve read the first Maximum Ride(Maximum Ride #1) book, you should enjoy this. ^-^

RATING 5 STARS

Omg, FREAKING AMAZING BOOK!

In The Mark of Athena, Percy, Hazel and Frank meet up with four others from Camp Half-Blood: Jason, Piper, Leo, and Annabeth. This book’s main conflict is pretty simple: Go to Rome and stay alive. Their goal is to make it to Rome, save Hazel’s brother, and find the Doors of Death.

This book takes place all over the world, but the main setting is on Leo’s warship: The ArgoII. They visit Kansas, Atlanta, and some more places. 😉

I loved, LOVED, that Annabeth’s was one of the narrators. It was fun to see from her point of view for the first time. Annabeth is such a kick-butt girl, it’s fun to see her point of view on things. Percy, of course, narrated some chapters too. The two of them together again was hilarious! 😀

The book was funny, had lots of action, problem solving, and Diet Pepsi(Don’t ask). I was laughing my head off at some things Coach Hedge did: One of which he’s on the boat yelling, ‘Bring it on lake! YEAH!‘ I thought that was hilarious.

The ending. -_- Oh. My. Freaking. Gosh. The ENDING. Rick did his first real cliffhanger. I admit though, I enjoy when something happens to the main characters because otherwise it seems like you’re favoring them too much. I’m glad Rick writes such amazing books for me to read. Five stars!

5 stars, books are better, book reviews, best in YA books, best YA novels

I recommend to Rick Riordan fans, people who love mythology, and action lovers. If you’ve read The Lost Hero, The Son of Neptune, and Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief..You are bound to love this book. 🙂

Book Review: The Demigod Diaries by Rick Riordan

 

The Demigod Diaries (Heroes of Olympus) by Rick Riordan

Pirate Princess’s Review

DESCRIPTION: ”

What dangers do runaway demigods Luke and Thalia face on their way to Camp Half-Blood? Are Percy and Annabeth up to the task of rescuing stolen goods from a fire-breathing giant who doesn’t take kindly to intruders? How exactly are Leo, Piper, and Jason supposed to find a runaway table, dodge a band of party-loving Maenads (who just might be a little psychotic), and stave off a massive explosion…all in one hour or less?

With his trademark wit and creativity, Rick Riordan answers these questions and more in three never-before-seen short stories that provide vital back-story to the Heroes of Olympus and Percy Jackson books. Original art, enlightening character interviews and illustrated profiles, puzzles, and a quiz add to the fun in this action-packed collection that is sure to delight legions of loyal fans.”

RATING 5 STARS

LOOOOOOVED IT! <3! 😀 This book was amazing. Percy returned in one of the short stories in this book, along with Annabeth, Luke, Thalia, Leo, Jason, and Piper. Though, they weren’t all in the same story.

The Demigod Diaries has four short stories in it: Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes, The Diary of Luke Castellan, Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford, and Son of Magic.

In Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes, it’s Percy and Annabeth’s 1 month anniversary. It was hilarious!

‘I gave her a smile that I hoped conveyed something like: Hey, you know I’m on your side. Gods are suck jerks! But what can you do? Probably my expression actually conveyed: It’s not my fault! Please don’t kill me!

Lmho, right? 😉 I loved reading from Percy’s point of view again, and since it was a date with Annabeth, that made it more awesome. 🙂 I also learned that Hermes may not be the safest delivery god. Why? Here’s why:

‘Hermes and I sat in the back of the truck on a couple of boxes labeled TOXIC SERPENTS. THIS END UP. Maybe that wasn’t the best place to sit, but it was better than some of his other deliveries, which were labeled EXPLOSIVES, DO NOT SIT ON, and DRAKON EGGS, DO NOT STORE NEAR EXPLOSIVES.’

-_- Yeah……Hermes isn’t the safest UPS guy. Oh, and it has a fire-breathing giant. Did I forget to mention that?

In The Diary of Luke Castellan, Luke writes from his point of view, part of his adventure with Thalia before camp. Which involved a magic goat with udders that gave out Pepsi and Free Ice. We also learn Luke’s first weapon was destroyed. The one he uses in the story is…..Dun, dun, dun! A golf club. Lol! I loved the magic goat/soda machine. 😛 Thalia was cool, as always. Luke was funny. Funny where I had tears coming out of my eyes. I now love Luke in this story. 🙂 My favorite part was, you guessed it, the soda/magic goat! 😀

Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford. I was laughing so hard while I read it this one. It was awesome! Leo returns, along with Jason and Piper! You can tell this story is awesome because the first sentance in it is,

‘Leo blamed the Windex.’

😀 Awesome, right?! 😀 Buford is a walking table that, other than hates Windex, holds something important. Can’t tell you what because I you have to read it. 😛 Haha! It has insane chicks, a walking table named Buford, and of course, Leo Valdez! Also known as Repair Boy. Hehehe. There’s an awesome party too, and the Hokey Pokey.

The Son of Magic, the last short story in this book, was written by Rick’s son, Haley. It’s about a son of Hecate who fought for Kronos in the second titan war. We read the story from the point of view of Claymore, an author. The only thing I can tell you about this one without going into spoiler mode is Claymore is apparently really, really, aggnorant (And stubborn in my opinion). This one needed a bit more humor, other than that, cool-O!

The reading age says 10 & up, but I think 8, possibly 7-year-olds will be able to handle these stories. If you’re uncertain about it though, but you’re kid is a Percy Jackson fan, just make sure they don’t read The Diary of Luke Castellan if you buy it.

Altogether, five stars! Well done! I loved seeing my favorite characters again in this book of stories and games. Congrats to Rick Riordan and his son, Haley Riordan! 🙂

5 stars, books are better, book reviews, best in YA books, best YA novels

I recommend to ages 8(Possibly 7)-Adult (Look at second to last paragraph if you’re concerned about age). If you’ve read his Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief series, or enjoyed Heroes of Olympus (Book #1), you will LOVE this.

Book Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Legend (Legend #1) by Marie Lu

*TOP 10 OF 2012*

Publisher: Putnam Juvenile (November 29, 2011)

RATING 4 STARS

I read Legend right after reading The Grey Wolf Throne.  The two books complimented each other.  It was really interesting, because I really like Han in the other series.  Day is a similar character. He’s poor with a tormented past.  He’s on his own and will do anything to survive.  One difference is that Han seems to be a bit of an egoist while Day is still trying to act within his own moral code.  Day hasn’t killed anyone.

And that’s what spurs this book.  Although he’s caused the Republic lots of problems, he hasn’t killed anyone.  Then one night things go horribly wrong and he’s accused of killing June’s brother.  The story unfolds beautifully, not too fast, not too slow.  We learn what happened to June’s family and the clues her brother left for her.  June hunts Day with the intention of killing him.  She’s the Republic’s golden child.  She’s smart, cunning, and merciless.  She’s the youngest solider and the smartest.

I LOVED this book.  It was dark and intense, with reasons that resonated with the reader.  You were routing for June and then hoping she’d fail, because you are routing for Day, too. Their two worlds collide and the story is just awesome!  I can’t say enough about this book.  It wasn’t on my short list of books because I hate the cover.  Yeah, I’m a girl and it’s an ugly cover.  Anyway, Legend is in my top 10 books read in 2012.  So why’d I give it 4 stars?

Lemme explain.  There is only one reason why I didn’t give it 5 fricken fab stars – the formatting.  Printing things in bold, weird colors was a gimmick that this book did NOT need.  Instead of lending to the book, these issues made Legend difficult to read from major headaches and eyestrain.  Publisher of Legend, I have one thing to say to you: I hope you print the next book normal so I can read it.  I completely hated the publisher’s guts while I was reading this book.  Doing anything that makes it more difficult for a reader to read a book is STUPID.  You might as well be shooting Chinese stars out of the pages at my eyeballs.  Majorly annoyed about that.

To the author: Your book was so good, I endured the migraines to finish it.

4 star book review

If you liked DIVERGENT, SHATTER ME, or 7 REALMS SERIES then you’ll like this.  Weird cross over on that last one, but I stand by it.  Han and Day are both awesome.  <3 <3 <3

Book Review: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Mike’s Review

DESCRIPTION: “Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the murderous dead, and keep pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

Searching for a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas expects the usual: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.

Yet she spares Cas’s life.”

Paperback: 320 pages
Recommended Age: Older Teen
Publisher: Tor Teen; First Edition edition (July 3, 2012)

RATING 4 STARS 

I almost walked away from this one a few times… But, I kept picking it up anyway and, eventually, it was worth it.

Anna Dressed in Blood has a great premise – and that’s what kept me from giving up on it. It’s not vampires, love triangles, and teenage angst (at least not entirely.) It’s a ghost story. A really creepy ghost story at times.

The problem, at least for me, was how slow it was to take full advantage of the premise. I was almost half-way through the book before the plot itself was gripping enough to keep me turning the pages. In and of itself, that wouldn’t be a deal-breaker. But, during that down time there wasn’t anything to balance out the lack of excitement. Every time it felt like it was about to kick into gear, it still managed to meander of pretty quickly.

I would really have liked to see more character depth from the beginning. More relationships. More conflict. More to keep me reading, and building the suspense, while waiting for the “ghosty” parts. Heck, I really wouldn’t have been upset to see any of the characters suffer a horrible death for the better part of half the book. That’s a problem.

As the story goes on, I never really fell for the protagonist, Cas, but there was still enough there to keep me hooked. Maybe that was the problem – the bulk of the beginning was supposed to be introducing Cas… and I just never really grew to like him during that time. At times I actually disliked him. If nothing else, how do you have a “ghost hunter” who seems so weak at times.

I normally would have rated this around three stars. But, my rule is that if I’ll pick up the next book in the series it’s worth 4. And, I just may grab the next one. Maybe. This book actually ended on a note that strongly reminded me of Demon Kissed – and that’s a great series.

***Although YA, my twelve year old will have to wait for this one… Otherwise I foresee a lot of nightmares in the near future. Just an FYI – maybe your kid is made of stronger stuff. But, I was creeped out at times, and I’m old enough to know the bogeyman isn’t under the bed.

Book Review: Kingdom Keepers #4 (Power Play) by Ridley Pearson

A Pirate Princess Review

DESCRIPTION: “For the five teens who modeled as Disney Hologram Imaging hosts, life is beginning to settle down when an intriguing video arrives to Philby’s computer at school. It’s a call for action: the Overtakers, a group of Disney villains, seem to be plotting to attempt a rescue of two of their leaders, both of whom the Disney Imagineers have hidden away somewhere following a violent encounter in Epcot. A staged attack by new Overtakers at Downtown Disney, startles the group.

One of their own, Charlene, is acting strange of late. Has she tired of her role as a Kingdom Keeper or is there something more sinister at play? When caught sneaking into Epcot as her DHI, acting strictly against the group’s rules, Finn and Philby take action.

Has the “impossible” occurred? Have the Overtakers created their own holograms? Have they found a way to “jump” from the Virtual Maintenance Network onto the Internet, and if so, what does that mean for the safety of the parks, and the spread and reach of the Overtakers? Are they recruiting an army from outside the parks?

A dark cloud in the Kingdom Keeper era is unfolding, and with dissention in their own ranks, it’s unclear if there’s any chance of escape.”

REVIEW: 5 STARS–NOT TO BE MISSED! THIS IS MY FAV!

The Kingdom Keepers are kids who cross over into the parks when they are asleep.
The book has adventure, mystery, action, and laughs.

My favorite characters have to be Finn and Jess. Finn for his problem solving and how he acts in bad situations((Maybe being cute too. LoL!)). Jess for helping out after her being released from the spell of Maleficent in book one.

This book is about the Overtakers coming up with a plan to release their leaders from prison. Finn and the gang have to figure out the problem fat, or else the enemy wins.

Book Review: Kingdom Keepers (Disney After Dark #1) by Ridley Pearson

Kingdom Keepers (Disney After Dark #1) by Ridley Pearson

A Pirate Princess Review

DESCRIPTION: “In this fantastical thriller, five young teens tapped as models for theme park “guides” find themselves pitted against Disney villains and witches that threaten both the future of Walt Disney World and the stability of the world outside its walls. Using a cutting-edge technology called DHI–which stands for both Disney Host Interactive and Daylight Hologram Imaging–Finn Whitman, an Orlando teen, and four other kids are transformed into hologram projections that guide guests through the park. The new technology turns out, however, to have unexpected effects that are both thrilling and scary. Soon Finn finds himself transported in his DHI form into the Magic Kingdom at night. Is it real? Is he dreaming?
Finn’s confusion only increases when he encounters Wayne, an elderly Imagineer who tells him that the park is in grave danger. Led by the scheming witch, Maleficent, a mysterious group of characters called the Overtakers is plotting to destroy Disney’s beloved realm, and maybe more.

This gripping high-tech tale will thrill every kid who has ever dreamed of sneaking into Walt Disney World after hours and wondered what happens at night, when the park is closed.”

REVIEW: 5 STARS! NOT TO BE MISSED!

Go Keepers! Go Keepers!

This AWESOME book is the first in the Kingdom Keepers series. It takes place at Disney World, in Orlando, Florida! (A.k.a, Disney!) Compared to the other books in the series, I think that this one is second best (Fourth one is awesome-er or the one where Finn uses the sword).

I liked that this book took place at Disney and that it was with kids twelve-years-old instead of seventeen. Adventure was good, also, Maybeck’s sarcastic comments keep you laughing. The main struggle in this book is the Keepers trying to stop the Disney villain, Maleficent. Btw, She’s going dooooooown!

The ending was a very well written and made me snatch the second book straight away (No seriously, I was begging!).

I liked the ending because,

1.) it was well written

2.) everybody lived

3.) I’m going to stop listing the reasons otherwise this will get too long.

I really liked this book.  Before we found these books I did not want to read on my own.  But I like these a lot.

This book was a good read because it was so funny! Jack and Annie were on a submarine for most of this book looking for the answer to their riddle.  And then the submarine went under!  Annie pressed a lot of buttons on the submarine. I laughed a whole lot when that happened!

It took me 2 nights of reading by myself to read this book.  It was easy to read.  The best thing about this book was when Jack and Annie noticed that their submarine was broken.
