I had an amazing opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
Zarox is a story about a young boy, Parker, and his friends. They find themselves in a world unlike their own, with new creatures and powers. In order to save the world, they most find pages from The Book of Zarox, learn to use their newly found powers, and battle villains.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this novel. There were some parts that confused me, or were not explained thoroughly, but I was able to get the gist of it. It also took me a little while to get into the story.
In all honesty, the main characters were my least favorite part of the story. They were pretty static, and much too forgiving and kind for my taste. However, I loved the bond and friendship they shared.
I wish there had been more internal/external conflict. It also kind of frustrated me that the characters were able to pick things up and figure things out extremely easily.
With all of this being said, I am a huge fan of fantasy novels, and I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen next. The battles excited me, and I enjoyed reading about the villains. The author plans on making this a series, and I look forward to reading more about the character’s adventures.
