2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

The Roar has finally made it to Earth. Will these children be able to stop her from destroying their planet?

First, what was I thinking when I thought I should re-read this in order to make a better review?!

Okay, my feelings haven’t really changed from the first time I read it.

I’ll summarize since I don’t want to think that much about this book. Things I didn’t like:

  • This book is a little bit shorter than the second book, but longer than the first one.
  • Even though this is the last book, I still think it wasn’t that well thought out.  Still too many plot holes, not that many details, and still some questions towards the end of the book.
  • Descriptions, wording, events, etc are all still very choppy and strange.
  • Too much like a junior fiction book than a young adult one.
  •  Personalities of the characters have never really developed.
  • Also, the ending doesn’t feel completed. Though, I’m happy there aren’t any more books in this series.

And there isn’t anything I liked about the book. :(

What would make this series better is better description, more detail and background, and more of a plot to go by. So, I would not read this series unless you are truly bored.

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

The Roar, devourer of planets, is finally on her way to the planet Earth. Will the changed children be able to stop her from destroying their planet?

First, what was I thinking when I thought I should re-read this in order to make a better review?!

Okay, my feelings haven’t really changed from the first time I read it.

I’ll summarize since I don’t want to think that much about this book. Things I didn’t like:

  • Not as short as the first book in this series, but still pretty short.
  • This book is not that well thought out. It still had some plot holes, not as much as the first one, but still a lot.
  • Descriptions, wording, events, etc are all still choppy and strange.
  • Too much like a junior fiction book than a young adult one.
  • Personalities of the characters are still not developed that well. They are still very boring. ~_~

And there isn’t anything I liked about the book. :(

They definitely aren’t worth reading unless you are really, really bored.

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Six children are the first to start changing into something not human, and no one knows why. However, all of them are drawn to Coldharbour, and they can hear a roar. What is making the roar? And how will they be able to fight it?

I’ll summarize since I don’t want to think that much about this book. Things I didn’t like:

  • This book is very short. You can finish it rather quickly, if you even finish it.
  • This book is not that well thought out. Too many plot holes and not that many details.
  • Descriptions, wording, events, etc are all very choppy and strange.
  • Too much like a junior fiction book than a young adult one.

The Roar has finally made it to Earth. Will these children be able to stop the Roar from destroying their world? Or, will they end up like all the over worlds devoured by her?

This book isn’t as short as the first book, but it is still short compared to other books. You can pretty much read all the books in this series in just one to three days.

Basically, this book like the first book is not that well thought out. In this book, there are not that many details and it feels like it had a lot plot holes. At first, the books are kind of strange while you reading it. Though, it is kind of more interesting than the first and second book, but not by much.

What would make this series better is better description, more detail and background, and more of a plot to go by. So, I would not read this series unless you are truly bored.

The unknown danger in the last book is now known as the Roar. The Roar devours planets without any hesitation, and she now has her sights set on Earth. Only the six children who have changed can work together to stop her. Will they be able to stop the Roar in time?

Not only is this book very short, the other two books in this trilogy are just as short. You can pretty much read all the books in this series in just one to three days.

Milo, Walter, Helen, Emily, Freda, and Thomas are changing, and their parents don’t know why, but the children do. They are drawn to Coldharbour because of the approach of a sinister enemy. However, they don’t know what it is yet, nor, do they know how their destinies tie together.
