My Favorite Pick:

Book TitleThe Rivers of Zadaa
AuthorsDJ MacHale
Book Series: Pendragon, Book 6
Genres: YA, Fantasy, Time Travel
Release DateJuly 10, 2005

The battle continues. The struggle of good versus evil continues as Bobby Pendragon follows Saint Dane to the territory of Zadaa. Saint Dane's influence has fueled the fire of discontent between two warring tribes: the Rokador and the Batu. This is also the territory where the Traveler Loor lives as a member of the Batu. Together she and Bobby must work to thwart Saint Dane's efforts to destroy Zadaa.

But as Bobby pursues Saint Dane, he begins to notice changes in himself. He is no longer a flip kid looking for excitement. He is a young man beginning to see this quest as more than a series of adventures. He is also learning that as a Traveler, he has powers no normal human should have.

In this latest installment of Bobby Pendragon's battle to save humanity, discovery and danger go hand in hand as D. J. MacHale takes readers on an emotional thrill ride they won't soon forget..

It's not the most dynamic cover of the bunch, but I had to pick The Rivers of Zadaa as my favorite. The Pendragon series was one of the first YA series that really loved since ... (ahem, ahem Babysitters Club and Goosebumps - don't judge me). Interesting little tidbit is that the author, D.J. McHale, was also a co-creator of one of my favorite T.V. shows in my younger years, Are You Afraid of the Dark!

But, about the book. Loor is such a badass character and definitely my favorite Traveler besides Bobby himself. For me, this book also set the tone for the rest of the series and was a great read. Check out this series. It's a great one... Hobey-Ho!
