↠´ Monster Slayers (Monster Slayers, #1) ñ Download by ↠´ Lukas Ritter I read this book when Will 7 picked it out at the library I initially wasn t too concerned, despite the Dungeons and Dragons label on the cover because, at first scan it looked like the reading level was above my first grader I thought I would be reading it TO him and could therefore censor as I read if needed.
The book started out, unfortunately, great Highly engaging and actually perfect reading level for Will Very readable but with some vocabulary that was a stretch Serpentine Scant Ajar These are easily decode able wordS but words that Will doesn t run across in everyday life Most of those words, however, could easily be figured out from context which is perfect for a young reader The story sucked us in and then Will started to read on his own because he was so engaged Another good sign I thought At this point I happened to be having a discussion with a friend about oth Predictable but an interesting premise which is always good Drug a little but picked up at the end.
Monster Slayers is just the type of fantasy novel I really enjoy reading It has three young heroes, although Betilivatis is much older than she appears since she is an elf, on a quest to save the kidnapped villagers Along the way, they must outwit an ormyrr, a monster that I had never heard of and wonder what it really looks like , fight a pack of gnolls multiple times, and work with a chimera.
I quite enjoyed the quick pace of this fantasy romp The storyline is very exciting and there is a huge twist that I just didn t see coming At first I was disappointed by this, but then saw the light and understood where the author was heading By the end of the book, I was quite happy with the way the story ended and find myself looking forward tocompanion books in this series.
Lukas Rit A decent book, but not quite what I was looking for I hoped it would be an older kids book with a group of fantasy folks embarking on a quest, Tolkein style It started out that way but had a twist near the middle that changed the tone noticably.
The writing was fine although the tie in to the other monster guide book was repeated often enough to be annoying Also near the end the writer gave the main character a short sword that he had always been carrying but never told us about before that made my eyes roll, but other than that it was a good read.
awesome plot twists in the story Decent for what it is I read this with my 8 year old as a bedtime story It s nothing amazing, but a decent tale with enough of a twist at the end to make it less than predictable.
Great book Its like D D meets Maze Runner and the Hunger Games.
