The Rivers of Zadaa (book review)


The Rivers of Zadaa, by DJ MacHale, is the sixth installment in the Pendragon series. In it, Bobby Pendragon and his warrior friend Loor have to stop an oncoming war between two tribes on the territory of Zadaa, the Rokador and the Batu. They aren't making much progress until their dying friend, Bokka, tells them of a horrible secret and of an evil man named Saint Dane living deep in the heart of the Rokador's capital city, Kidir. As Travelers, Bobby and Loor know that Saint Dane is an evil demon determined to destroy all the territories in the universe.

When Bobby and Loor venture into the heart of Kidir, what they find is...nothing! The city is abandoned. Saint Dane has given the Rokador an evil plan, a plan that may destroy both tribes! They have to stop him before it's too late.

This sixth book is perhaps the best one yet! It made me want to run out and buy the next one right away! This one was jam-packed with adventure. I'll be sad when this series is over, although I have at least two more books to go.
