Hoyle – Darcy Pennington hates her life She is an insufferably average teenager with no real friends crushing social anxiety and an indescribable sense of not fitting in anywhere Then a change in her Es the other five teenagers to travel there with her Once there they learn the “arrival of the Six” was prophesied hundreds of years before and that they must expel an ancient evil from the land Will Darcy have what it takes to save Alitheia Or will she fall prey to a deadly fo. Short Review Thirteen year old Darcy Pennington doesn’t have any friends Her real love in life is horses For the past several years she has gone to a summer camp dedicated to riding horses But this year both because of financial constraints and to be together as a family her family has decided to go on vacation together to a family camp Darcy is dreading it She is dreading it in part because two other kids from her neighborhood that she knows but does not really like will be there as wellDarcy begins to like the camp despite herself The area is beautiful and the kids are fairly friendly although as an introvert Darcy does have a problem finding space to just be alone As she gets acuainted with the space and the people there is a sense of magic and not just in the figurative senseI do not want to give away too many details of the story but this is a young adult fantasy that has some parallels to CS Lewis’ Narnia books Eventually another world is involved and a prophesy and gifts and talents and an evil ruler Genre writing is difficult good genre book follow enough conventions to be part of the genre without being reduced to conventions Good books often drop subtle hints and references to earlier books that helped to define or illustrate those conventions Bad genre books blindly follow the conventions without adding anything new to the conversations within the genre One of the things that some people love about genre writing is the ability to ‘check out’ as you are reading because the book become so conventional that no real thought is reuiredThe Six is aware of the young adult fantasy conventions and definitely pays tribute to Lewis and Tolkien and other masters without being mindless or boring Characters make mistakes and have limited perceptions of where those mistakes are going to lead There is real character development although this is the first of a series so there is plenty of room for character and story developmentThe Six was a uick read for me I read it in basically two sittings in two days I was engaged and entertained and frustrated with bad decisions as I was supposed to be And I enjoyed the result and I am anticipating picking up the rest of the seriesMy slightly longer review is on my blog at

Well that was disappointingI was really excited to start this book I love books with this setup and it just had just so much potential The characters seem to have such a nice range of personalities I was really excited to read about Lewis and the premise was just so awesomeWhat went wrongI hold middle grade books to a high standard I expect them to be just as fleshed out detailed and complicated as their YA and adult counterparts If you think these middle grade books don't exist you haven't read the right ones I want to see the passion and the care and the love and the intimacy the author has with their characters dripping from the pageI just felt as though no one cared about these characters There was no passion No uniueness No chemistryThe characters and their reactions felt flat Everything just feltoff I agree with Darcy for once in saying that Amelia was annoying Sam was nice but bland Lewis hardly existed and when he did he was aggravating Perry was dull and one dimensional Dean seemed okay but we hardly got any page time with him The team of the Six didn't work well together or feel like a team Their interactions made me feel uncomfortable There was no chemistry They mostly just hated on Darcy which gave way to her loads of self pity and caused her to feel alienated from the group causing awkward character interactions I'm not sure if there was one pleasant Team moment with these No banter no witty battles no jokes The plot feels frustratingly long and like we're not getting anywhere And I could predict the plot too Which is saying a lot because I'm terrible at predicting plot twists I knew that SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SKIP TO THE NEXT PARAGRAPH Lykos was evil which I found really disappointing WHY DO WOLVES ALWAYS HAVE TO BE EVIL I LOVE WOLVES I justidk Not enough felt like it happened for the first book I would be forgiving towards this if the characters had shone But they didn't BUT There's a reason I gave this book 3 stars Because this book did have a few things that made it possible to read through That number one thing being Tellius Tellius is my BOI My SON Good night I love him so much He's so sad and bratty and hot tempered and spoiled and stiff and such a bean I don't know how someone COULDN'T love him I loved him with all my heart and I wished he had page time He was the reason I wanted to keep reading Rubidus and Colin were also fun to read about I hope that they get expanded roles in the books to come Their characters shoneAnd the worldbuilding is cool I loved the narks And the animals And the scenery and all the species of Alithea Having the talents is really cool but it does have some strains of Harry Potter esue magic so if you are sensitive about that keep that in mind And I liked the idea of being able to communicate with the animalsBut it just wasn't enough to impress me or leave me happy after putting the book down I really hate leaving reviews on books that I wasn't crazy aboutI always feel so mean And it made me sad to have to say I didn't like this book very muchThanks for reading my review
