REVIEW: I believe that the serpents tooth by Alex Rutherford is a great read for all boys in year 7-10.

It is historical fiction and covers the wars, betrayal and dangers faced by the leader of the Moghul Empire, Shah Jahan.

Shah Jahan ordered the building the Taj Mahal in honour of his dead wife Mumtaz Mahal in 1631. Blinded by grief  he did not see the ‘throne or coffin’ competition that his children held and he never saw the Taj Mahal. He becomes fatally ill and civil war breaks loose across the empire.

I believe that The Serpents’ Tooth is a great read that is not only satisfying but also educational.

The way of shadows is the first of the Night Angel trilogy, a story of a boy named Azoth who lives in the Rat Ways, a dirty slum where girls are sold at a young age and boys are made slaves. Azoth is given a chance to escape when he meets a mysterious stranger who offers to change his life around, welcoming a world, of martial arts, knifes and swords, poisons and potions, where he becomes a master of death, A Night Angel.

If you love Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings this book is perfect, a whole new world; of civil conflict, war and mysterious Gods and creatures.

Tom Gates is a great series written by L. Pichon about a boy with an older sister who is always grumpy and a best mate called Derek. He lives a life like most elementary school children besides his wacky family! This series is a great read if your looking for a comedy or something to cheer you up. I laughed the whole way through. There are great ideas and funny drawing throughout the book and a great part on his teacher with a mustache [ Mrs Worthingtash]. This is a great series and I highly suggest reading it. I give it 5 stars!

Matt Hall starts he story in his younger years explaining his passion for aviation, describing his dad’s new and interesting acrobatic trick and his stories of gliding on the weekends. It then progresses with downfalls and inspiration, which led him to his career in the Australian Air Force which was hard worked for and deserved. Towards the end of the book he ends his career with the Air Force to start a family with his wife Pedita, who he met in the Air Force industry.

This is a very inspirational book and I recommend it for readers who like a long read, interested in aviation or are into biographies.

This book, as the title suggests, is about video games. Without giving away the plot too much; the book is set in a futuristic world people spend most of their time on a computer system called “OASIS.” It allows the person to control another person using virtual reality. The book is about a competition and the winner will win billions of dollars and complete control over OASIS. The story revolves around a young poor boy named Wade who becomes the most famous person in the world.

Highly recommended. A magical book with a cast of characters that you will really care about.

The book  is the story of how former world number 1 tennis player, Rafael Nadal, came to glory. The book takes you through his lifestyle in his hometown of Mallorca, his training and the hard work he had to do to get where he is now. The ebook focuses on his second grand slam in 2007 against Roger Federer. I recommend this book to tennis players and fans who love this player.
