Kurzbeschreibung

12. September 2012 13th Reality (Buch 4)
Suspense meets sacrifice in the action-packed conclusion to New York Times bestselling author James Dashner’s 13th Reality series.

Atticus Higginbottom—aka Tick—has known all along that when the battle for every reality is on the line, his role will be a crucial one. But he never could have imagined how this final challenge would go down. While Tick’s friends Paul, Sofia, and Sato work together with the Realitants to fight the newest and biggest threat to the very fabric of all that exists, Tick finds himself alone with the villains responsible for the damage: Mistress Jane and Reginald Chu.

Each character faces unimaginable choices and death-defying odds in this breathless conclusion to a quirky, clever series. Ultimately, it will take a stunning sacrifice to save the day….

James Dashner wuchs in einer Kleinstadt in Georgia, USA, auf. Der dichte Wald in dieser Gegend lieferte ihm bereits als Kind viele Ideen für seine späteren Geschichten. Nach seinem Studium arbeitete James zunächst in der Wirtschaft. Doch schon bald fühlte er sich als "kreativer Mensch im Körper eines Buchhalters" gefangen und wandte sich dem Schreiben zu. Seitdem ist er Autor zahlreicher Bücher. Seine Trilogie "Die Auserwählten" eroberte in den USA auf Anhieb die Bestsellerlisten und zieht die Fans nun auch im Kino in ihren Bann: Der erste Band wurde von 20th Century Fox verfilmt, unter anderem mit Dylan O'Brien und Thomas Brodie-Sangster in den Hauptrollen. James Dashner lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen vier Kindern inmitten der Rocky Mountains, behauptet er zumindest.

Chapter

1

A Gash in the Forest

The forest smelled of things dead, things rotting.

Jacob Gillian paid the stench no mind, walking his merry way along the narrow path that threaded through the tall oaks and pines like a dried-out stream. Of course, the reason he paid it no mind was because he’d lost his sense of smell thirty years ago in an unfortunate spice sniffing contest. His grandson, Chip, had to tell him that the place stunk like a three-week-old dead rat stuck under the pipes.

The two of them had been hiking side by side for well over an hour, knowing full well that something horrible had happened deep within the dark woods. Exactly what had happened was still a mystery, and the reason they were out there. Jacob had heard the awful sound of ripping and shredding and booming. Chip had smelled the nose-wrinkling stench. Those two things together spelled trouble, and by golly, the source behind it needed finding out.

Jacob and his grandson had moved into the boonies after Chip’s parents had been killed in a train collision near Louisville. Ever since then, they’d learned to live with little and less, loving the wild freedom and exhilaration of being smack-dab in the middle of nowhere. Their closest neighbor lived a good thirty miles down the poorly maintained state road, and the nearest town was forty miles in the other direction. But that’s just how Jacob liked it, and the life had seemed to grow on Chip as well.

One day they’d return to civilization and start learnin’ Chip on the ways of society. But for now, there was time. Time to heal, time to grow, time to enjoy. Time to have time.

“I think I see something up there, Grandpa,” Chip said, a little too enthusiastically, considering the circumstances that had brought them out into the woods.

“What is it?” Old Jacob couldn’t see much better than he could smell.

“There’s a bright patch. Seems like it goes all the way up to the sky!”

“On the path or off it?”

Chip grabbed Jacob’s hand and started hurrying down the little ribbon of beaten leaves and undergrowth. “Just to the right of it. We’re almost there!”

Jacob followed along as careful as he could while still keeping up with Chip’s eager steps. Warning bells rang inside his mind, but he did what he’d done since the day he’d stepped out into the humid fields of Korea as a soldier—he ignored them. Curiosity always won out in his book, and courage came as naturally as a nice belch after dinner.

They’d just rounded a bend, skirting past two mammoth pines that looked like brothers, when Chip suddenly pulled up short. Jacob ran right past him, almost yanking his grandson’s arm out of its socket when the boy didn’t let go. But then Jacob saw what had stopped the kid, and all he could do was stand and stare. He felt Chip’s sweaty hand slip out of his own.

Fifty yards ahead of them, a swath of the forest had been wiped from existence and replaced by a brushstroke of . . . something else. Starting deep in the ground and shooting all the way to the sky was a wide gash in reality, a window to another place. Jacob could see part of a beach, the deep blue waters of the ocean beside it, a sun where there shouldn’t be a sun. The time was almost noon, and the real ball of fire was directly overhead. It was as if someone had clawed a rip in the reality of this world and replaced it with another.

“What in the great dickens are we lookin’ at?” Jacob whispered.

“Grandpa?” was all Chip managed in reply. His voice shook with equal parts confusion and terror.

“I’ve been from one end of this world to the other,” Jacob said, not sure if he was talking to himself or to his grandson. “And I’ve never seen a thing like that in my life.”

“Let’s go home.”

“Home?” Jacob tore his eyes away from the spectacle and looked down at Chip. “Didn’t you hear what I just said? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Let’s go check her out.”

Jacob took Chip’s hand once again, and they started marching closer to the impossible vision of another world streaked across their own. They’d come to within twenty feet when a person appeared on the beach, stepping into the picture from the right edge of where reality had been torn apart.

It was a lady, though Jacob could only tell that from the ratty, filthy dress she wore; a hood was pulled up over her head. A red mask, seemingly made out of metal, covered her face. The expression on the mask was one of anger.

She saw them just as they saw her, and she stopped to stare, the features of the mask shifting to create an expression of absolute shock.

Jacob took a step backward before he realized what he was doing.

“Who are you?” the woman asked, her voice raw and scratchy, like it came out of a throat scarred with acid. “Do you know how this happened?”

Jacob’s mouth had turned into a bucket of dust, and he couldn’t remember how his tongue or voice box worked. He tried getting words out, but nothing came except the slightest hint of a croak.

Surprisingly, Chip spoke up. “Lots of bad sounds came from over here, and the whole place is stinky. Me and my grandpa were just trying to see what happened.”

Such bravery from the kid meant Jacob had to speak. He found his voice. “Where you from, miss? Um, if you don’t mind me asking.”

The lady’s mask melted—literally, by the looks of it—into a frown. “I’m from the Thirteenth Reality. Where are you?”

Jacob swallowed a lump the size of his big toe. “Um . . . Kentucky?”

Before the lady could respond, her image and everything around her suddenly spun into a tornado of colors that quickly merged and transformed into a mass of gray. It swirled and swirled, picking up speed and creating a wind that tore at Jacob’s clothing. And then the sound of terrible thunder seemed to come from everywhere at once, shaking the forest and splintering Jacob’s skull with pain.

When the spinning mass of gray mist expanded and took him, he had the strange thought that although he certainly wasn’t a cat, curiosity had killed him all the same. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen A thunderous, marvelous finale 20. September 2012
Von thehydrogenpoptart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
First Sentence: It was all about the soulikens.

A Quick Synopsis: The Void of Mist and Thunder picks up where The Blade of Shattered Hope's epic cliffhanger left off. Atticus Higginbottom is trapped in the Nonex, a place where no one has ever escaped from, with his two mortal enemies, the misguided Mistress Jane and the diabolical Reginald Chu. The catch is, the only way to escape from the Nonex is for all three to work together--but what if the price of escaping means that Tick must help one of his rivals? Meanwhile, outside the Nonex, the Realitants face a startling new enemy: the Void of Mist and Thunder, which threatens to tear apart Reality itself.

The Review: Wow. That was the only word I could say to myself after finishing The Void of Mist and Thunder. Wow. I started The Journal of Curious Letters, knowing that I was in for a treat. What I didn't know was that the treat would be so tasty. And I didn't know that the treat would taste so good, or end so brilliantly. Mr. Dashner certainly doesn't disappoint here. In fact, if I may say so myself, he totally redeems himself from his rather lacklustre Maze Runner finale and prequel.

All of your favourite characters are back from the first three volumes--Master George, Paul, Sofia, Sato, Mothball, Rutger, and last but certainly not least, how could I forget, Tick! Every one of them is crafted with the same precise care and detail. And you know what, let's also hear it for Mistress Jane and Reginald Chu, because even though they're the villains of the tale, you can't help but feel...something for them. Some of the book's greatest action comes from its great characters.

Oh, action! The plot and premise of The Void of Mist and Thunder is full of that. Previous installments of the series have contained plenty of action, but it's nothing compared to this. Prepare yourself for stunning new inventions, deadly monsters, and of course, thunder and destruction! The action begins from the first page and never lets go. This is a lightning-paced page-turner with plenty of heart. And readers looking for a hint of the riddles found in The Journal of Curious Letters will also find it here.

The ending...I'm thinking about how amazing it was even as I type these words. I promise you it is something that you did not expect. If you are reading this and are thinking "Oh I expected that!" you are either lying or should become a best-selling author. Some readers will need a box of tissues to finish reading even as you grip the book with your sweaty hands, adrenaline pumping through you. The author wraps things up perfectly, and there's just the right amount of closure.

I usually don't write such short reviews, but there's nothing more I can say about the book except that it is a wondrous work of art. If you are in elementary or middle school, read these books. They deserve so much more credit than they get. I hope someday this series becomes a cult classic, and then I'll have been so proud to have followed it from the start. Actually, I'm proud right now to have followed The 13th Reality from the start. Atticus Higginbottom, thank you for coming into my life.

Memorable Quote: Reality spoke to you in interesting ways--not in the formulas and equations of mathematicians and scientists, nor in the dry, lengthy descriptions found in dusty old textbooks. Reality was another level altogether, at one with our minds. It spoke to you in the best way your own self can speak back.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A thrilling end to a unique fantasy series 3. Dezember 2012
Von Dorine White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For MMGM today I am taking a look at the upper middle grade novel, The 13th Reality- The Void of Mist and Thunder by James Dashner. The concluding book in The 13th reality series, it is published by Shadow Mountain

The Story-
As we begin this story we find Tick, Mr. Chu and Mistress Jane lost in the Nonex, a no-man's land of no escape. Of course our hero Tick has other plans. In his attempt at escape, he finds himself captured by the fourth dimension, a void of mist and thunder. It has invaded reality and is attempting to destroy all the known worlds.

Tick is able to rejoin his friends, The Realiants, but only for a brief time before he is captured by the evil Mr. Chu. Now, at Mr. Chu's mercy, Tick is told he will be sacrificied to allow Mr. Chu absolute power over the realities and the void.

Desperate, The Realiants gather their forces, but the battle is huge, with Mr. Chu's forces on one side, and the destructive void on the other. Will Tick be able to save the day?

My Thoughts- this is a great book with cross-over appeal. I've enjoyed the mysterious stories of Tick and his friends as they grow and try to expand upon their powers. Tick is a lovable hero, with values and the normal flaws found with a youth. He puts his family and friends first, which often causes problems, but hey, that's what sub plots are for.

Since this is the concluding book in the series I want to mention how well I think Dashner wraps things up. Friends and enemies are forced to work together to keep the realities from being destroyed, there is even redemption for Mistress Jane, who I've always thought had a good spot deep down. The ultimate ending is all about love and sacrifice, and rings true of the whole story.

I think that in this series Dashner really stretched the bounds and came through with some unique ideas and storylines. And that's what makes a good book to me. It has to be something fresh, exciting, and not the same themes as other books out there. You can tell his talents stretches beyond the norm by looking at his YA series, The Maze Runner. Wow, now that's imagination opened on a platter.

Here are the books in the 13th Reality Series:

The Journal of Curious Letters
The Hunt for Dark Infinity
The Blade of Shattered Hop
The Void of Mist and Thunder

Over the period of a year, I bought this series of books for my granddaughter (age 11 and 12).

She really loved these books, and I am told she couldn't put them down once she started one.

It is so nice to see a young person enjoy reading as I did years ago.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Strange read 25. Juli 2013
Von Book-IT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I really like this series, but it is a strange one. It stretches the imagination to new realms. I would recommend this book series to someone who is in between books in another series and waiting for the next release or if your just looking for clean fun entertainment via a book.

This book in particular is written well and keeps you engaged. It does seem to jump from one characters view to another a lot though out the book. That does bother me a bit. You just get into a scene, if you will, when it changes on you.
