Review: The Book of Wonders by Jasmine Richards
The plot in this book is really, really good. I liked it a whole lot. And I enjoyed the writing as well. But the reason this is a four star and not a five star, is because when the characters are talking it doesn't feel real at all :\ Didn't seem so realistic most of the time.
But still. I liked the writing, and I loved the characters. And this book is a big adventure. Lots of things happening at all times. Lots of action, and so many interesting things happening. And, of course, many deaths. But they weren't that brutal; mostly. But they were bad.
The characters in this book is really great. First there is Zardi; the main character. She is a girl who just turned 13. She is kind, and fun, and all kinds of awesome, really. But she has no patience; so she did annoy me some times. She has a great family. Really liked her Nonna :) And I liked her sister as well. Even though she wasn't there much. I didn't like her father; because the way he talked did not seem realistic :p But still.
Then there is Rhidan. Zadri's best friend. And he is awesome! A bit grumpy at times, but I still loved him. Because I would have been grumpy as well. He really is an great boy. He lives with them; because he has no family. He was abandoned as a child. And he is hurting a lot because of that :\ But he is still really amazing. And a great character in this book :)
There were a lot of other characters in this book as well. But they all had so complicated names I can't remember them :D lol. But I do remember Sinbad. He was.. well.. not really good or bad. He was interesting; but I didn't really like him much :) But still. He made the story more interesting. Plus I liked many of the people in his crew :)
The plot in this book is awesome. There is lots of magic, sort of, and lots of adventure. Although it seems to me like there should be a sequel. Because the book ends in the best place, really. Right before the adventure I was waiting for in the entire book. And then it was over! So, yeah, a bit disappointed with that :) But I'm still hoping. So many things were left open.
Like the new adventure. That I really, really, really wish to read about. Plus it seemed like there could be a really sweet romance between Zardi and Rhidan. And I really want that :) So I'm hoping for a sequel sometime. <3 Don't really have much else to say about this book. It has an awesome story, and awesome characters. So you really should read it :)
