with a battle.
A nasty one. Then again, is there such thing as a nice battle? I guess this
one seemed especially vicious because it was over something so trivial. At
least thatís what I thought at the time. At stake was a couple gallons of
water. Iím serious. Regular old everyday water. Not exactly the kind of
thing youíd expect a group of professional warriors to fight to the death
over, but thatís not the way here on the territory of Zadaa. Water here is
more valuable than food, more valuable than treasure. Itís even more
valuable than life. I know. Iíve seen people risk theirs to get a few
The Rivers of Zadaa is the sixth book in a New York Times best-selling
series. Bobby Pendragon has travelled to Zadaa to prevent Saint Dane from
taking over Halla, which is every time, place, and person. On this territory
the two tribes, the Rokador and the Batu, are fighting over food and water.
Bobby and his friend Loor are on a mission to stop them from going to war.
I would recommend that you read the first five novels before this one
because you will have some trouble understanding who Bobby is, what heís
fighting for and why heís on Zadda. You will also be very confused by who
Mark and Courtney are and their purpose in the story.
The Rivers of Zadaa is a great book; you can actually feel the intensity
when Loor is fighting the Zhou beast for a newly found well. I think the
book was written very well. I think it would be more suitable for kids
twelve and up. It has lots of description and an ending that will knock you
off your feet. I found that I couldnít put it down, especially during a
climax. I canít wait for the next installment.
I give The Rivers of Zadaa five out of five stars.
