    Thomas wakes up in an elevator with no clue what’s going on, who he is or any specifics of his past. Then suddenly, he sees a bunch of teens his age. “Welcome to the Glade.” The Glade, the middle of the maze, the center of activity out in wherever. Nobody knows what the place is. Some have been there for two years, and they haven’t got a clue. Every day runners go out into the maze that surrounds the Glade to look for a way out. Here’s the catch: the maze is filled with grievers, mechanical monsters with spikes and deadly surgical equipment arms. When the elevator comes up with a girl, everything starts to change. In an action-packed intriguing novel, James Dashner creates realistic characters and a setting that you can visualize. Full of suspense, twists and turns, The Maze Runner is a perfect book for fans of dystopians and puzzles. My thoughts: I went into this thinking that it would be like the third task from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire but in the form of a whole book. I can tell you that I was wrong. I was blown away by the story, such a unique idea that is played out seamlessly. It is completely different from the third task and, man, this book was so full of surprises and craziness I loved it so much. This was one of my favorite reads of the year and I can not WAIT to read the following books.

    Sabriel’s father has gone missing. She was left with Abhorsen’s sword and Abhorsen’s Seven Bells and must venture out into the Old Kingdom to find him. Growing up in Ancelstierre, Sabriel has limited knowledge about the Old Kingdom but she starts her journey. Up against the Dead of the Old Kingdom that Ancelstierre has always protected her from, she must fight the elements, banish the Dead and find her father. But an enemy is following her, one of the Greater Dead and she must conquest to defeat him as well as save her father. Journeying with an unusual cat and a dude named Touchstone who was frozen for 200 years, Sabriel ventures north to save her father in an original, epic high fantasy novel with fast-paced action and plentiful writing. My thoughts: This was my first foray into high fantasy and I will most definitely coming back to this genre. Sabriel was a mind-blowing read. Garth Nix is capable of creating a whole world with intricate rules and complex features and manages to pull it off. HOW? I love this universe. It’s just awesome. Charter Marks and Bells and the Dead—I want more! I will definitely be picking up the sequels. It’s just amazing how dense the world is. Death is the most interesting part in my opinion. Death is another dimension in this book; you can walk through the waters of Death and there are precincts of Death. It all just fascinates me. Sabriel had great action, detail and suspense. I would definitely recommend picking this book up!
