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 A good read for a teenager, but lacking depth 15. Juli 2012
Von dappermuis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
You get two types of teenager/young adult books: those that, despite targeting a younger audience, are a fulfilling and satisfying read for the older audience; and those that are explosive for the younger audience but leave the older audience wanting more. Examples of books that fall into the first category are the Harry Potter books and the Hunger Games trilogy. These books, despite being written for a younger audience, resonate with older audiences who can identify with the characters and themes of the story. This book, unfortunately, falls into the second category...

Let me start by saying this. If you buy this book for your 12-15 year old nephew or read it to your younger kids as a bedtime story, they will have a great time. It really is a page turner, filled with adventure and suspense. However, I bought it for myself as a 20-something and was left feeling disappointed. I guess my biggest grudge with the book is that there is almost no character development - I didn't find myself falling in love or feeling much empathy for any of the characters, something which I usually do with other books where there are several characters that I "connect" with. I basically just read the book to see what happens next, which ended up being largely predictable.

The second grudge that I have is that the book is so short and doesn't even finish telling the story! You get to the last page and bang, it just ends in the middle of a scene with no closure. This is (not so) sneakily followed by promotion for the second book in the series, which happens to continue right where the last one left off! It's basically like starting a new chapter... Given how short this book actually is (you could easily read it in a day), I can't help but feel that this was an attempt by the author/publisher to milk these books for all they're worth. Fortunately the Kindle version of this book was relatively cheap at $4, but that's besides the point...

Anyway, I did go onto to purchase the second book because I read half of the story in the first book and wanted to see how it ends. After about 15 minutes of reading I'm 7% into the book...go figure...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Fantasy, But I Hate Cliffhanger Endings 19. Dezember 2011
Von Cellophane Queen - 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.
