Kurzbeschreibung

Deadly secrets have been buried in the Cascade mountain wilderness for centuries. Hidden. Out of sight and out of mind.

Until today...

Warren Wilkes, age 13, doesn't like what a greedy housing developer has done to his peaceful mountain community, so he vandalizes the developer's property, flees into the wild, and stumbles upon an ancient human skeleton revealed by torrential rain. More than old bones have been exposed, however, and the curious artifact Warren finds makes him question his own identity, and his connection to an ancient terror. A terror destined to rise again and annihilate all that Warren loves. He must fight or see his whole world destroyed.

August 2012: GAIA WARS series optioned for film by Identity Films, Hollywood!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing! 5. August 2011
Von FilmFan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"Gaia Wars" is amazing. I got sucked into the story within the first five pages and the pace and excitement made it tough to put down. Ken Bennett has created a very fresh take on the epic fantasy tale, so if you like Tolkien, CS Lewis, Harry Potter, and other "big" stories, you'll love "Gaia Wars."

Pros: Great concept, fast-pacing, detailed, evocative settings, interesting characters. The main character of Warren Wilkes has a lot of depth. In the first few pages, he didn't come off as very likable, but soon you realize what's driving him and he becomes very sympathetic.

Cons: So engrossing that I read it too quickly! Luckily, the second book in the series will be released soon.

Who might like it: certainly young adult readers -- especially boys who like fast-paced adventure stories. But since the book doesn't ever "talk down" to its readers, adults who enjoy fantasy with sci-fi overtones will like it too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A new series has arrived as Good & Evil collide in the NW Cascades 4. August 2011
Von Raymond Allbritton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Here's a Young Adult novel that this adult really enjoyed. Warren Wilkes, a young teen, begins a journey of discovery on a NW mountainous hike that goes far beyond anything he could have imagined. There are many recurring themes in the book - environmentalism & development, motherhood & the bounty of the earth, as well as good vs. evil. The book weaves a multi-layered story that culminates in an epic battle for -- well, I won't give it away. It's a book a young teen would love (even the guys) as well as their parents. Now I'm waiting for the next book in the series to come out so I can see whether Good prevails over Evil. If Warren has his way, I'm pretty sure it will.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply awesome 4. August 2011
Von Mark S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"I picked this up and literally did not put it down until I'd reached the back cover. Wow, impressive how quickly and deeply you get immersed in "Gaia Wars." And it's surprisingly original for the genre. Beautiful language, superb story telling, non-stop action. Does anyone know when the next one comes out?"

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Fantasy, But I Hate Cliffhanger Endings 19. Dezember 2011
Von Marva Dasef - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Original premise and well-written. The MC is 13-years-old, so this is a young YA, but it's got plenty enough gory action to entertain.

Warren is an orphan whose parents were lost in forest fire. He lives with his uncle and does the usual kid things. The neighbors, however, bug the hell out of him as they race around the small lake both properties front on loud jetskis. The father is a blustery bully who's intent on stripping away the beauty of the Northern Cascades to put up a subdivision of fancy houses.

Warren devises a scheme to stop the noisy jetskis, but it wasn't well thought out. What he thought would be a harmless, although scary prank endangers the son of loudmouth neighbor and messes up the dock. The result is Warren ending up in juvie court. He's sentenced to 100 hours of community service. He blurts out that he'd like to help out at the retirement home. He doesn't even know why he did since he'd far rather be in the great outdoors, like his father and mother had been.

Things start getting scary when he's chased by the bully boy and trips over a skeleton. The bully is close behind, so Warren has time only to pick up a medallion that obviously belonged to the dead person.

Anything else I'd say would be spoilers, so I don't want to tiptoe around that. My one complaint is that the book ends abruptly with a "you've got to read the sequel for the rest of the story." I really hate that. I've complained on more than one occasion that even a series must have a satisfying ending to each book. I do not like teasing by leaving huge questions unanswered to try to force the reader to buy the next book. When that happens, I don't buy the next book. Simple as that. You've lost a reader.

That's why this book gets only 3 stars. It left me on the edge of a cliff where I don't want to be, so I'll just take my toys and go home. I'll just read some spoiler reviews to see what happens.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eco-villains, intergalactic war, and an ancient secret makes this a fun read 13. Dezember 2011
Von Susan Pi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I never identified with any of the Disney princesses (even as a child, I questioned the practicalities of a glass slipper...) but I loved (LOVED!) Pocahontas.

I don't know why this particular movie spoke to my childhood soul. Maybe I loved the idea of living in the forest, maybe I wanted a giant tree to offer me grandmotherly advice or maybe my pubescent self just thought Captain John Smith was the hottest thing in tight cartoon pants since, like, you know, forever.

Remember the lyrics to Colors of the Wind?

"But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name"

Even as a child, I sensed that if there was such a thing as God, I would find Him/Her/It in the soul-deep connection between every animal, plant, or thing. As an adult, I've accidentally tapped into this mysterious interconnectedness more than once. It isn't something I can actively seek out; it comes to me without warning.

The Gaia Wars by Kenneth G. Bennett speaks to this spiritual part of me, and the entire premise of this book is built upon the idea that our planet has a living, breathing soul. But the book also has action scenes (WOOT!), and mysterious caves (ECHOEY WOOOT!), and last but not least...

...wait for it...

...wait for it...

ALIENS!

OH SNAP! That's right. Somehow, what I thought was going to be a simple eco-thriller suddenly morphed into an intergalactic war with zombies, brain control, and enough death/destruction to turn your facial expression from -_- to O_o.

Warren Wilkes, the hero of the story, loves the beautiful Cascade mountains the same way teenage girls love Justin Bieber. We're talking line-up-at-two-in-the-morning-to-buy-his-perfume kind of love. From the very first page, you see him attempting to protect the unspoiled wilderness from local eco-villains (picture Captain Planet's Hoggish Greedly in your head and you've got it!) through the use of a little sabotage. Things go horribly wrong, and before long, Wilkes stumbles upon an ancient evil threatening the very existence of our planet.

And BAM! Just like that, you're feverishly turning the pages trying to find out what happens next. The Gaia Wars is a very fun read, and it's been a long time since I've read a book that gave me goosebumps late at night.

Conclusion: If you're a fan of Captain Planet, mother nature, and/or soul-sucking-I'm-going-to-kill-all-you-pathetic-humans-by-morphing-into-your-face kind of aliens, I highly recommend this book.
