Publisher's Summary

Just when 15-year-old Bobby Pendragon thinks he understands his purpose as a Traveler - to protect the territories of Halla from the evil Saint Dane - he is faced with an impossible choice. The inhabitants of Eelong are in danger of being wiped out by a mysterious plague. Only Bobby knows how to stop it, but it means bringing the antidote from another territory - Cloral. Since moving items between territories is forbidden by the Traveler rules, if Bobby chooses to save Eelong he could endanger himself, his friends, and the future of every other being in Halla.

Critic Reviews

"Dufris is undaunted in his interpretation of the inhabitants of Eelong, giant cats whose disdain for humans is barely contained." ( AudioFile)

Can't turn it off!

I can't believe how much this series has sucked me in. From the beginning I HAD to know what happens and figure out what Saint Dane is up to. Things are getting serious after what happened on Veelox. Oh, and my heart broke during Journal #19. I gotta go start Rivers of Zadaa right now!

I loved these books as a kid...

These books are poorly written, have basic plots, and too many "coincidences"

The narrators are also go-awful. These. Oils could have been great.

I kid you not...

These books just keep getting better and better. I wasn't sure The Reality Bug could be topped but I was proven wrong. This one was EPIC!

Overacting

Another stunning overacting performance by William dufris. It still ruins the story for me. This book is probably my second least favorite anyway. When I fist started listening to this series, I was hoping the performance would get better, but it hasn'tyet... here's hoping...

New Kind of Story

This story is SOOOOO different from the past 4 books. It's a lot more grown up and action-packed than the previous books. I would completely recommend!

Pendragon Trial by Fire, Pivot Point for Friends

Bobby's adventures continue with his first visit to a non-human society, where humans are called Gars and are considered a lower life form. While he is dealing with the ultimate culture shock and trying to stay alive, Mark and Courtney find that in order to do what they feel is the right thing they have to break some rules. They find out the hard way that you don't get to choose the consequences when you break rules, and sometimes others pay for your choices.

This series is amazing, and fun. I especially love this book because I am a parent, and my kids love this series. When they get to this book there are so many life lessons that can be learned from these words. How often do we set out to do something good, for all the best reasons, and along the way make choices the end up haveing unexpected and unintended consequences? I love how real the characters are, and how true to themselves they stay. Mr. MacHale has created each of them with unique motivations and drives, and even thought the series covers a significant age range for all of them, they are believable and embracable.

Mr. Dufris' performance in these books is magical. He brings the story to life. It is not just someone reading words from a page. It is a tallented voice actor making each individual unique, identifiable, and exciting. Some reviewers have complained about his performance. I thoroughly disagree. His reading is part of what makes it so fun to listen to these stories over and over again.

Thank you both for hours and hours of uplifting family entertainment.
