Pictured above: Black Water and my little klee, Stormi. I let my brother borrow this book some years ago and this is how it was returned to me. Safe to say, I have not loaned my books out since.
Read in 2008 and reread in 2018.
I just finished re-reading the fifth book in the Pendragon series by D. J. MacHale called Black Water, which I haven't read in ten years! Even though this was a reread, I didn’t remember much of the book at all. It’s weird. So it was almost like reading the entire book for the first time, and I was not disappointed.
So the best way to describe this installment is that this book had no chill. I loved how much emotion I felt while reading it, maybe even more so than the last book, The Reality Bug. I also appreciate that questions are finally being answered about the whole Travelers system. The adventure in this one was fantastic, too. It’s hard not spoiling anything this late in the series, so it'll be interesting to see how I review books 6-10. But that’s it for now.
I'm giving Black Water by D. J. MacHale a 5/5 stars. My rating system is as followed:
- My rating system stands: 5/5 is a knock out of the park; this book deserves to be read by everyone. 4/5 is, “I really liked it,” but it did have a couple of kinks. 3/5 is, “I believe there are a lot of people who would enjoy this book, but for one reason or another, it didn’t sit well with me.” 2/5 is, “I really didn’t enjoy it and I’m not going to recommend it.” 1/5 is, “no one read this – throw it in a lake.”
