Publisher's Summary

This is where it begins. The showdown for Halla. At stake is nothing less than all that ever was and all that will be.

There's only one thing missing - Bobby Pendragon.

While Bobby remains trapped on Ibara, the battle moves to his home territory: Second Earth. Mark Dimond and Courtney Chetwynde are left on their own to defend Second Earth against the forces of Saint Dane. They must face off against a charismatic cult leader who has risen to power by revealing a shattering truth to the people of Earth: They are not alone.

The Convergence has broken down the walls. The territories are on a collision course. The final phase of Saint Dane's quest to rule Halla is under way.

And Bobby Pendragon is nowhere to be found.

    "Horrifying"
    Would you try another book from D. J. MacHale and/or William Dufris?

    no


    What could D. J. MacHale have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Let something good happen to Bobby and keep it a little more realistic.


    Which character ??? as performed by William Dufris ??? was your favorite?

    Bobby


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Raven Rise?

    I would have started the book over. Book 9 had such a bad ending.


    Any additional comments?

    The first 8 books of this series were excellent. However, book 9 had some far out twists and book 10, I was unable to finish.

    "It's just like all the other Pendragon books."

    My son (age 11) likes these books, so I keep getting them. If it were up to me, I would have stopped somewhere around Book 4. The premise is interesting enough, but the main character spends too much time navel-gazing ("Why must I be the one to save the world? I wish I had a normal life!") and there's too much armchair philosophy about free will vs. predestination ("Should I kill this bad guy? Is this how it was meant to be? But perhaps I should not kill him-- maybe *that's* how it was meant to be!" etc.) And no matter how much it seems like the good guys have finally won, the bad guy always comes back at the end and says "Aha! You've played right into my hands! I wanted to you to do exactly what you did! Now I will destroy the universe!" It's just really boring after a while. Plus, the narrator overacts. His voice is just twisting with anguish all the time, and he always sounds like he's about to cry. I'm so glad we only have one book to go before we're done with this series.
