5.0 de 5 estrelas Excited for another Cressida Cowell series! 12 de junho de 2017
Por Allison Kuta - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Análise do cliente Vine de produto gratuito ( O que é isso? )
My 11yo 6th grader is an avid reader. Here is her review:

--- "Xar and Wish don't fit in. Xar is a mischievous Wizard Prince with no magic, but he's intent on getting some by stealing it from a witch - the worst magical creature to ever walk the Earth! And Wish is a Warrier Princess who is is weak, plain and kinda unusual. She found two enchanted objects that are forbidden, her mom has banned wizards, snowcats, sprites, and well, pretty much EVERYTHING magical! One day when the pair meet in the woods -- both having just seen a witch! -- everything changes. This is a wonderful adventure, with great main characters. I couldn't put it down! I am a big fan of Cressida's "How to Train Your Dragon" books, I just love her work and I can't wait to see what will come out of this new series. If you like Harry Potter or the Land of Stories series, you'll enjoy this, too!"

3.0 de 5 estrelas Predictable and easy read for late elementary to middle school readers. 20 de julho de 2017
Por Liat2768 - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Análise do cliente Vine de produto gratuito ( O que é isso? )
My sons loved the entire 'How to train your Dragon' series and when I saw that Cowell was beginning a completely new fantasy series with 'The Wizards of Once' I was sure they would be thrilled as well.

My younger son humored his parent and read the book and tried to let me down gently. 'It's ok' he muttered 'but not my favorite!' he added hastily trying to encourage the batty parent while not encouraging a sudden supply of more books in the series. I was flabbergasted. This was the same author who wrote a series that they adored!

So I read the book as well. I was quite surprised to find that I did not really enjoy it either. The premise is pretty average - Magic Boy ( who has no magic ) proceeds to meet Warrior Girl who can perform magic effortlessly. Could be a nice read except that the boy, Xar, is a pretty unlikeable, unpredictable and irresponsible little man. And the Warrior girl is just sweetness and light and a bit too stereotypical. Of course, they have many harrowing adventures that force them to face the flaws in themselves, learn how important teamwork and perseverance are in real life and end up being really good friends in the end.

What flunked the book for me is the writing. Cowell's trademark wit from the Dragon series doesn't quite make it into this book. The writing seems a bit flat and the humor forced. As to the plot, there is little to set this book apart from the hordes of fantasy novels aimed at young teens and preteens. The story is fairly predictable and the language is very plain. This has been a trend in recent children's literature - the expectations of vocabulary seem to be fading fast and, while this makes books more accessible to all, it makes for a very simplistic narration of events. The book is illustrated and readers are either going to love the drawings or hate them. They, like the illustrations in the dragon series, are reminiscent of the cadaverous art form of a Tim Burton fantasy but there could be charm in them for some readers.

In sum, this is not a series that my children will be returning to.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Awesome. That's the best word I can come up with. 25 de junho de 2017
Por Emily J. Morris - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Análise do cliente Vine de produto gratuito ( O que é isso? )
There's always something magical whimsy and quirk do to a story. Ms. Cowell as once again mastered the art of this in a riveting new novel/beginning of a new series that was a heck of a one-sit-read for me. In a wild flourish of creativity and adventure, she weaves a truly awesome tale that just may trump anything else she has written (and my household reads That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown at least weekly.)

Set in the "British Isles before they knew they were the British Isles" (are you not already charmed?), this tells the tale of two youngsters from warring factions: Xar, the self-involved bratty prince of a tribe of barbarian-like wizards, and Wish, the terribly ordinary princess of a iron-wielding warrior tribe. They meet when Wish and her bodyguard Bodkin, whilst looking for her pet Spoon (just what it sounds like), wind up in Xar's Witch-catching net. Add in a mysterious Witch-killing sword, a dead Witch, and a few drops of Witch-blood, and the youngsters get caught up in a day's worth of exhilarating adventures with worrisome consequences.

It's a fast-paced, wild adventure, as per Cowell's usual storytelling, with plenty of maddeningly bizarre quirks as if the tale wasn't fantastical enough. The story-telling is amusing and top-notch and I confess I fell immediately in love with the story and its characters. Ms. Cowell may have a new hit on her hands, if the rest of the series proves as wonderful as this.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Cowell's welcome return! 17 de julho de 2017
Por Joseph91 - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Análise do cliente Vine de produto gratuito ( O que é isso? )
Fans of How to Train Your Dragon will be delighted to see Cressida Cowell's new series - it's got everything we loved about the previous series and a few improvements to boot. Specifically, it's got humor, adventure, gawky tweenaged heros finding their way in the world, loving parents who do their best but still can't quite understand their heroic children, charming illustrations, and humorous sidekicks! What's not to like?

On top of that, it has a stronger role for its female lead and jumps right into the plot -- two issues that HTTYD had also addressed by the end of the series, but this takes off running. The main characters are Wish, the daughter of a Warrior Queen, and Xar, the son of a Wizard King. Neither quite fits in, and they quickly find themselves in the middle of an adventure I won't spoil.

Let me just say that if you were sad when How to Train Your Dragon Ended, like my 11 year old and I were, you'll be delighted to pick up Wizards of Once!

4.0 de 5 estrelas World Building Start to a Series 1 de julho de 2017
Por SW - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Análise do cliente Vine de produto gratuito ( O que é isso? )
This start to a new middle-grade series by the author of How to Train Your Dragon is thick with world-building that can get a little dense at points, but the story ultimately picks up speed between the two protagonists who both rebel against their predetermined destinies; she's a warrior who wants to be magic, he's a wizard who wants to be a warrior. They meet up chasing a witch and quickly start to rewrite their own stories, and change their larger, fantasy world.

The dueling boy-girl heroes, as well as casting them against type, makes this a good in for both boys and girls at and age when reading material preferences tend to be heavily gendered. My 10-year-old really enjoyed it, and is eager to see what's next in the series.
