Because, it would seem, he’s the one and only chance Xor has.
I took a pen to this one. Not that it needed to be changed, but because I was adding commas. I just can't stand it when a book is missing commas. I'm sure you understand. Nothing against the author, but commas are an issue.
Other than that though, I literally had no problems with this book. It's been a while since I've read fantasy, so that was kind of a surprise, because I had no idea what to expect when I started this book, but I definitely enjoyed my delving back into children's fantasy. (Yep, it's been a while.)
I absolutely adored the simplicity of this book, because it seems like all of the books we read nowadays you have to read about a million different things that were done to solve one problem. Why can't it all be as simple as magical bubblegum, or mechanically minded Drakes? Why?!
I miss life being simple.
Children's books are simple. They always end well, and they never fail to make your life lighter. I miss that. Now, let the rambling commence!
I liked the character of Lewis, because, honestly, I miss reading about characters that are innocent children, where everything about them is just laid out on the line. Don't get me wrong, I love complex characters, but sometimes it just get's old. They're always complex. (Or 2-d, but that's a rant for another day.)
He was just a kid, trying to save the world that he's been told that he's the only hope for. I betting that it would scare me senseless, if I was the only hope for a world, but Lewis seems to thrive under all that pressure. So, Lewis, Five, K'Bol, and Professor Nand all embark on a merry journey, to save the planet of Xor.
(Reminiscent of the Fellowship, don't you think?) To be honest though, it was everything that I didn't expect it to be. I didn't expect to enjoy this book, or honestly, to be the one that reviewed it. I was actually going to ask someone to guest review. It get's hard sometimes, ya know? Anyways, this book surprised me, and I hope to read more like it in the future.
