You should read this book if you’re in the mood for: Magic, Action, Fantasy

What did you like about this book?
I liked how this book had a lot of mystery in the attacks of the Dragonlord and his Strikers. I also liked how many characters had powers of the Chinese Zodiac.

Who were the main character(s)? Which one(s) were your favorite? Why?
Usagi was the main character. I liked her because she was a very powerful person and was very dedicated to saving her friend and sister who were trapped in the Dragonlord’s fortress.

Other kids should read this book because…
This book is educational with the information it gives about the Chinese Zodiac.

This book reminds me of Rick Riordan’s mythology series’ because of all the mythology connections it has.

Your thoughts on the book:
What is your favorite animal? Would you love to have some of the powers that that animal has? In The Twelve, some people have the powers of the animals in the Chinese Zodiac legend. This book has great detail in the way that the characters use their powers to attempt to stop the evil Dragonlord and his soldiers, the Strikers. This book will suck you in as you watch Usagi hone her rabbit skills, which are powerful hearing and leaping, to get strong enough to help free her sister and her best friend from the Dragonlord’s clutches.

I recommend this book for kids in these grades:
6th, 7th, 8th

What did you like about this book?
It contains accurate depictions of both Greek and Roman mythology. It also mixed in contemporary ideas and characters to make it relatable to modern-day. It also portrays how these abnormal teens cope with normal teen problems.

Who were the main character(s)? Which one(s) were your favorite? Why?
The main characters were Leo (the comedian), Jason (the new kid/Mr. Perfect), and Piper (tried to stay out of the spotlight but is often forced into it). My favorite character is Leo because he is the one whom I relate to most.

Other kids should read this book because…
Everybody can relate to at least one of the characters and will be entertained by the constant action and character developments, as well as the development of romance in the story. They will be hooked and want to read the rest of the series.

This book reminds me of all the other books in this series, as well as the other mythological books written by Rick Riordan.

Your thoughts on the book:
This is a great book that any middle schooler would love reading and is a great starter book for the rest of this series.

What did you like about this book?
Every single chapter had action and I could not stop reading it. The whole book was an amazing adventure and I was on the edge of my seat because of all the suspense.

Who were the main character(s)? Which one(s) were your favorite? Why?
Michael, Taylor, McKenna, Ostin, Jack, Wade, Tessa, Jaime, Dr. Hatch, Abigail, and Zues. My favorites were Michael, Taylor, McKenna, Ostin, Jack, and Wade. This is because they were very brave and willing to help anyone that needed it. Even in danger, they were not afraid to do anything they had to do.

Other kids should read this book because…
It was very suspenseful, because I could not stop flipping the pages. Also, the storyline/plot was very intriguing and filled with adventure and action.

This book reminds me of “Michael Vey: Prisoner of Cell 25”, “Michael Vey: Rise of the Elgen”, “Divergent”, “Insurgent”, and “Allegiant.”

Your thoughts on the book:
“Michael Vey: Battle of the Ampere” was one of the best books I have ever read. It was full of action and adventure that never seemed to go away. The author did a brilliant job at showing how everyone felt some type of defeat, but later realized that they were better than that. This gave the book a detail that readers couldn’t help but love. I would definitely recommend “Michael Vey: Battle of the Ampere” to everyone, because it was a fantastic book.
