The "Everworld" Series

Style: Good

Attitude: Unobjectionable

Author: Katherine Applegate

Publisher: Scholastic

Age Range: Young Teens+

Period: Contemporary

Genres:  Fantasy


A group of friends, after indulging in some daft sorcery, find themselves trapped between two worlds, switching between them as they wake and sleep. The one is the everyday world in which every American Highschooler seems to exist, the other a cruel fantasy world, beset by dark magic and so on.


The books are obviously aimed at the serial buyer, but the interest of the premise wears off and the attitudes are too dark and cruel for my liking.
