Morpheus Road: The Light by D.J. MacHale


Marshall Seaver is being haunted. In the first installment of this chillingly compelling trilogy, sixteen-year-old Marshall discovers that something beyond our world is after him. The eerie clues pile up quickly, and when people start dying, it’s clear whatever this isit’s huge. Marshall has no idea what’s happening to him, but he’s soon convinced that it has something to do with his best friend Cooper, who’s been missing for over a week. Together with Coop’s sister, Marsh searches for the truth about what happened to his friend, ultimately uncovering something bigger than he could ever have imagined

I don’t really know how to sum up my opinions about this book. I wanted to like it, I really wanted to like it. No matter how hard I tried to like this book, nothing really clicked with me. D.J. MacHale is a wonderful writer, Morpheus Road was written really well and the plot was creepy and many people will probably love it. The characters seemed a bit annoying to me, which is part of the reason I didn’t really like it.
For the genera that is recommended for Morpheus Road, I think this story will really take off. It is marketed as Middle Grade. Long time readers of Zoe’s Book Reviews know that I am not a Middle Grade fan.
I recommend Morpheus Road to younger teens who are/used to be a fan of Goosebumps. It my personal favorite book, but it also wasn’t a bad book. If you read it, I hope you enjoy it.


I want to just make a quick note on the cover. Isn't is creepy? I love it!

*I received this book from the publisher.

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins.

Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers.
