Okay, first of all I want to thank the author, Michael Offutt for sending me a copy of this fabulous book. I really enjoy is because it's fantasy-ish, Adventure-ish books. I really love those kinds of books. And this character Jordan Pendragon reminds me of Bobby Pendragon from the Pendragon series. Both series are really great so they are both highly recommended for all readers.
Jordan Pendragon is a teenager in the human world. He is on the ice hockey team in his high school. Jordan have an older sister, Kathy. His parents died from a car crash. He could use space-time powers, which is really cool. I really want to try that.
Kathy Pendragon is also a teenager and is still in high school or college. She has a little brother, Jordan.She takes care of him since their parents died. She follow him to Kolin's world so she could kept a eye on him.
This book characters have really funny and weird names. But the story was really fabulous.
Okay it is time for the quotes:
"A cool breeze that held just a kiss of winter blew down off the mountain."
":He moved his eyes to the window and thought he saw something in the backyard."
"Hope you got a condom. . . . You're so getting laid tonight."
" . . . don't push the green button."
"You're going to murder someone?"
"I'd rather hurt myself than see you go back being a hired killer."
"Also, his last name is Pendragon. The name of a king."
"Lend me a hand please and boost me up so I can reach inside his mouth."
"You're at a disadvantage because you;re so small. . . "
"Torn to pieces by something that lives in the tunnels below the city."
"Because Kolin has no common sense. . . he's smart but dumb. . . "
". . . six-foot four with wide linebreakers shoulders, wearing a form-fitting black t-shirt and matching canvas pats stepped in front of her."
"Jordan looked at his reflections in the mirrow, and his face seemed drawn and pale. . . "
"Meat is just animal muscle."
"You, Jordan Pendragon, and your sister, Kathy Pendragon, are the last Archangels of God."
"You and your sister are the Technician and the Mechanic of the Creator."
That's all for this review.
