Synopsis

When Bobby Pendragon arrives on the territory of Quillan, he discovers a whole new meaning to the word competition! Quillan is heading for destruction, the people have lost control of their own future and are struggling just to survive. The only chance they have of finding a better life is to play the Quillan Games, but this is more dangerous than you would think. Game masters Veego and LaBerge have created a world filled with competition using the people of Quillan as pawns in their crazy computer-driven games. To triumph in the games is to live the life of a king, but to lose is to die! Pendragon realises the only way to save this troubled territory is to beat Veego and LaBerge at their own games and dismantle their nightmare fun house. But there is a lot at stake for Bobby Pendragon, more than he could ever have imagined...Let the games begin! -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

AUTHOR D.J. MacHALE DOES IT AGAIN WITH PENDRAGON BOOK 7 1. Oktober 2006
Von Richard Carlander - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I discovered the Pendragon book series when I was at Middle School, and just looking at the cover of book 1 The Merchant of Death, I became very interested in them. I read the first book when I was fourteen-years old, and I instantly fell in love with them. The whole storyline about a teenage kid writing and sending journals to his best friends describing his incredible and frightening adventure through space and time is very interesting, and the characters are well defined and have great dialouge and characteristics.So far each book has fascinated me, and I've never once been disappointed by any one of them.

Now the latest installment of the series,Book 7 The Quillan Games, is an exciting and action-filled adventure that takes fans to a whole different place and meets new,unique characters.

In this book, Bobby Pendragon, the young hero of the series,travels to the territory of Quillan, a dark world with no emotion and is controlled by a company called BLOK. Bobby soon learns what the turning-point of this world may be, since he finds out that everyone on Quillan gambles on a series of sports and games called The Quillan Games. However the people of Quillan don't bet on the games with money....but with their own lives, and if they lose, they'll pay. Determined to stop the territory from colliding, Bobby ends up becoming one of the champions, under the control of two spectators named Veego and LaBarge, and competes in a series of deadly games and tasks, risking his life for the sake of all of Quillan and, even greater, all of Halla.

I was given a copy of this book by my father and brother, who were able to get one of the very first copies ever, because it wasn't supposed to come out yet, and get it singed by D.J. MacHale, the author himself, at the LA Times Festival of Books. How awesome is that? I know that the Pendragon books are meant for ages 12-14, and I'm 16 right now, but I still love to read them. Besides, there's some really intense situations in this book that maybe most kids would be freaked out by, and there's some scaary stuff in this book, like quig spiders and sharp-toothed clowns(I don't like clowns very much to this day). There's also some great twists and turns in it,something to expect in future Pendragon books. I give this book 5 stars,being one of my favorite books and favortie book series.

Awesome Read, Can't Wait for the Next Book!!! 26. Juni 2006
Von fantasy book lover 7 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
You are transported to the territory of Quillian where everything is controlled by a company called BLOK. The only chance to get anything is putting bets into the Quillian game shows and game machines.But you must win or... well I think you should read the book to find out, but one hint, they don't have a party.The Quillian Games, written by D.J. MacHale was magnificently written. I was glued to the book for two days ( the time it took me to read it), I even read it while eating dinner with my family! If you enjoyed the other 6 books this is another to add to your collection of favorites.

And so we go... 26. Mai 2006
Von Calamari - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
D.J. MacHale has done it again. His latest installment of Pendragon is fast-paced, action packed, and his cliff hanger ending is guaranteed to leave fans begging for more.

The seventh book picks up where the sixth book left off. Bobby travels to Quillan, a territory where people are forced to become Challengers, players of a series of diabolical and dangerous games. If they win, they'll be treated like royalty; if they lose, it's not so pretty.

The rest of the citizens of Quillan don't play the games, but most people bet on them to put food on the table. If they bet on the wrong Challenger, it can be as bad as losing the games.

While Bobby is dealing with the insanity on Quillan, Mark and Courtney are trying to put their lives back together on Second Earth. Courtney is still recovering from her "accident" at the end of the sixth book, and Mark is spending a lot of time with Andy Mitchell, his ex-worst enemy. I don't want to say much more about the plot, other than, Saint Dane promises Bobby to reveal the "true nature" of the Travelers if he does......something for him.

Like all the Pendragon books, the story is action-packed and very exciting. However, the book never becomes formulaic because of some unusual plot twists, and interesting, if slightly creepy, character development. The series has gotten much darker since the first book, but still has its funny moments.

My only peeve is two scenes where Saint Dane corners Bobby and gives him the overused "You think you can stop me? I am going to crush you, you insignificant little boy. Bwahaha!" speech, while Bobby just sits there. Okay, so maybe it's pointless to try to kill Saint Dane because he'll just come back to life anyway, but Bobby could have done SOMETHING.

Still, it's a good book. If you've read the first six books, run out and get the seventh one as fast as you can. You won't be disappointed. If you're a newcomer to the series, don't get turned off by the first book; it is the weakest in the series.

DANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3. Juni 2006
Von Vader's Son - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read the first 6 books several times each, but none of them even compare to book seven, The Quillan Games. None of the books had the amount of mystery, action, and intensity that this book has. Bobby lands on Quillan (via flume), and everything is normal, clothes there for him to change into, and of course, quigs (super sized meat loving creatures) for him to avoid. Well, on Quillan, quigs are spiders. Lots and lots of mechanical spiders. Bobby avoids them (duh, what, did you think he'd get eaten in the first chapter?), and finds out that the clothes he is wearing make him qualify to participate in the Quillan games. Sounds fun, right? Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, no. The game creators, Veego and LaBerge have made the games so intense that the loser dies. They are like being put into a virtual reality game that isn't virtual. It's up to Bobby to put a stop to these games before these games put a stop to life on Quillan.

This book blew me away. No question. This book puts such a monumental twist on the Pendragon series that it's impossible to predict how the future books are going to turn out. You think Rivers of Zadaa was amazing? Black Water terrifying? This is definitely the most breath-taking, amazing, astonishing, astounding adventure yet!

Never fear Pendragon fans....another awesome book! 28. Februar 2006
Von Julie M. Effertz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As an elementary school teacher (4th/5th grade)and an avid fan of children's fantasy books (also frequently described as a 'bookaholic' by my students), I love to add to our favorite collections of books. Having purchased this book as an Advanced Reader Copy on ebay back in February, I just wanted to let all you Pendragon fans out there to know that this is another wonderful addition to the series. The series seems to be improving and getting more exciting with every book. Every one of my students who has read it (allowed to borrow ONLY if they've read the previous 6 books)has also ranted about how great it is (every one of them finished it within 3 days of borrowing it!). You will LOVE it--but make sure you read the first 6 before reading this book!
