This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. He as a evil and selfish old man. This was a relatively easy, quick read, but – at least for me – it didn’t capture the magic or maintain the momentum found in the predecessor, Epic. Enter main character Erik, who’s basically the underdog.

Eric with the help of his friends defeated the mighty dragon and became instantly famous. I think this book was really good. Also a fairly significant shift in style from cohor first–the focus is almost entirely kosticj the game world and is completely from POV of characters in it.

It sounded like a spectacular game. Return to Book Page. It led up to this huge final battle in the computer game of Epic, after we’d just learned they could actually die in real life through the game.

Book Review: Epic by Conor Kostick

I think that the book Epic is science fiction because science fiction has to do with huge increases in technology, and in Epic there are many technological advances. The main characters of the novel, however, lack the ability to be relatable.

Not “epic” despite its title.

This victory propels the teenagers into a series of unexpected encounters including with an evil vampyre; the Executioner of C. They balance each other out in the final conflict of the book, leaving Erik to revolutionise his world by ending the game of Epic.

Actually I quite like the idea of this book; this world, where you’re life depends on how well you do in a computer game. Mar 31, Ben rated it did not like it.

I hadn’t read the previous book in the series, “Epic”, but it didn’t seem to detract from my enjoyment of the story. Epc book Saga, written by Conor Kostick, was a very good book.

This is a fantasy novel which, while retaining many of the stock elements of the genre dragon slaying, a magic ring, cataclysmic battles, treasure chests, fearsome weapons, inter aliamoves well beyond these conventional bits and pieces to allow for the incorporation of a challenging intellectual wpic.

The whole concept of the RAL’s are so ingenious – we were already introduced to the idea that some beings of the game developed a conscience in Epic, and that is further explored in Saga. The themes of social justice and the nature of reality are confined to forced, uninspiring conversations between characters who, with the kostivk of Ghost, are all two-dimensional.

I’ve recommended it to the school librarian, local Scottish bookshops and my friends! I decided to read this book because the front cover looked pretty awesome.
