    Story
    (51)

    Even though ­thirteen-­year-­old Marcus Kanenas is confined to a wheelchair, he sees himself as a survivor and a dreamer. In fact, his favorite dream is of a world far away, a world where magic is as common as air, where animals tell jokes, and where trees beg people to pick their fruit. He even has a name for this place - Farworld. When Marcus magically travels to Farworld, he meets Kyja, a girl without magic in a world where spells, charms, and potions are everywhere, and Master Therapass, a master wizard who has kept a secret hidden for 13 years, a secret that could change the fate of two ­worlds.

    John says: "Water Keep: Farworld- Unique Story of Two Worlds"
    "Bad writing and bad imagination. Poor voice over."

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe an eight yr old.


    What was most disappointing about J. Scott Savage’s story?

    Poorly thought out confrontations. Unimaginative resolutions. Lame descriptions. Characters that were too dumb.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Bad effects that didn't need to be there. For example the voice that did the trees, sounded like a robot!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Water Keep?

    It's a decent story just bad writing throughout. I can't believe he found a publisher as well as wrote two more books. A good editor could have made a big difference!


    Any additional comments?

    You have been warned! Don't waste your credit! I typically like most YA authors but not this one!
