Reviews

As usual Kailin Gow rocks out the YA genre with her work. I absolutely adore her books and think she’s one to watch.

This book, of course, was great! I love the world building that she did…For me, it’s always just right. The characters in this one were great and I loved the storyline.
Here’s a sneaky little thing that Kailin did with the book…she made it educational. *shhh Don’t tell anyone!* LOL! In it you learn a lot of new words along with definitions but it’s combined so well into the story that you don’t really think about the fact that you’re learning. It was awesome!
Besides all that though, it really was just an excellent story…I always manage to get lost in her writing and I’m through the books before I even realize it.
If you haven’t checked her out yet then I think you should!

This book caught my eye right away. The story line alone made me want to pick it up and keep reading.

The book takes on the point of view of all the main characters with a focus on the POV of Gem. The book starts with the winners of the wordwick games, once these 5 are announced they get the chance to stay at the creator of the Wordwick Games’ castle where they get to play the newest level in the game. Once they get the tour of the place, Henry Word (the inventor) sends them off to there rooms where the journey to the new Level and amazing world of Anachronia. The team soon learns of the rules to win the game and find out that words represent a great part of winning. Words are power; they can be used as weapons or as a way to control a situation.

As the players travel through the land making friends and enemies they must find a way to follow all the rules and win the game. Becoming the best player, and the crowned ruler of Anachronia.

The teens encounter strange creatures and intense road blocks. With a world filled with war, trolls, wizards and even dragons it’s hard to be bored. When the gamers feel like something is up they come to realize that the game may not just be a game, they fear that the damage they take and the life they’re living is real.

The ending to this story was fantastic, with twist and turns that leave you wondering about the truth, when reality finally hits the ending will leave you asking for more!
A must read for those who love adventure and fantasy, competition and suspense.
A great start and I can’t wait to know what happens next.

This is a very clever book. My Asian parents would approve since it’s educational as well. I’m exposed to actual words on the SAT tests, while being completely and utterly lost (happily) in this fantasy world. The teens at first appeared to fit into gamer stereotypes, but as they move forward into the story, the masks all come off. You will root for these teens. You will feel what each of them feel. As is shown by this experimental fiction book, Ms. Gow is an author to watch. She is not afraid to try a new perspective or point-of-view. Characteristic of the young adult books I’ve read of hers, this one is fast-paced, highly-imaginative, and contains amazing plot twists and turns throughout. Gem is a heroine teen girls would like. She’s smart and resourceful. She reminds me of Katniss in Hunger Games, although the Wordwick Games is more of a fantasy game than the Hunger Games.

What a good book!! I found myself drawn into the action right from the beginning. My favorite parts were the little paragraphs at the end of each chapter that told you what each of the main characters was doing or thinking at the end of that chapter. I liked that the book had good strong female characters. It addressed that teens are usually thinking what everyone is thinking of them. I liked the fact that words had such power in the game. Words do have a strong impact in our world and I thought that the story illustrated this well as to the destructive power of some of the words that were used. I will definately be passing this on to my teenage daughter and even my older daughter who is in her 20′s.
