The Zero Curse (The Zero Enigma Book 2) (English Edition) Reviews
Der zweite Band führt die Geschichte eines Mädchens ohne Magie in einer Welt voller Magie weiter.Inzwischen hat die Protagonistin entdeckt welche Vorteile ihre „Behinderung“ bietet, sie hat dadurch die Fähigkeit Dingen dauerhafte magische Fähigkeiten zu verleihen.Die Erzählung enthält wenig innovative Elemente, vieles kennt man aus der Werken anderer Autoren, es ist aber gut neu gemischt und die Figuren sind liebevoll gestaltet. Die Hauptperson muss sich ständig neue Wege einfallen lassen, um an dem Magier Internat und bei anderen Herausforderungen zu bestehen und das hat der Autor gut gelöst.Wenn es etwas zu bemängeln gibt, sie und ihrer Freunde sind noch sehr jung und in diesem Band verhalten sie sich eher durchgängig wie Erwachsene, in der Hinsicht war der erste Band besser.BTW: Normalerweise äußere ich mich nicht zu anderen Rezensionen/Meinungen, aber wie jemand augenscheinlich sämtliche Bände des Autors kauft, nur um sie anschließend zu verreißen ist schwer zu verstehen.
Bzw dem Reader legen konnte. Obwohl an einem Punkt, gefiel mir die Entwicklung der Protagonistin gar nicht, zum Glück hat sie die Kurve noch gekriegt.Von mir eine wärmste Leseempfehlung.Ich werde mit Sicherheit auch den nächsten Band erwerben, der hoffentlich nicht zu sehr auf sich warten lässt.
Jedem dem der Vorgänger in der Serie und Nuttalls Serie Schooled in Magic gefällt, dem wird auch dieses Buch wieder gefallen.Ich habe es in wenigen Tagen ausgelesen und fand es wieder spannend geschrieben.
Dieses Buch ist verflucht - nämlich verflucht langweilig. Etwa das, was man erwarten kann, wenn man einem schriftstellerisch herausgeforderten Zehnjährigen die Aufgabe stellt, Harry Potter nachzuerzählen...
This was a very satisfying sequel in this new series by Chris Nuttall that greatly expands the world-building in ways that make the whole thing quite fascinating. This is especially true if, like me, you have also been reading and enjoying Mr Nuttall's Schooled in Magic series, because as the world-building grows so does the contrast between that series and its world and this one.As usual with Mr Nuttall, the characters are engaging and seem quite real, my only slight complain is that the heroine and her school contemporaries sometimes seem a little mature for 12 year olds. Likewise, as usual, the action is fast and furious but yet, for the most part, plot threads are tied up nicely by the end. Though there's a little twist right at the end to get us to shout "where's book 3?"I suspect you could read this book without reading its prequel but you really ought to read the prequel because it, too, is a great read.
The world and how magic works in it as well as it’s history was expanded on, but there were a few instances where the author made references to things that are in our real world and I found that a bit jarring, such as Rome or Romans and there was a quote that I found a bit strange even though it was relevant to the story it was still not something that would have be said in their world.I can’t really put my finger on the exact reasons why I didn’t like this story as well as the first one even thought I felt it was a solid story and a good follow up. In part I think it is because it was too much of an expected plot with out any real surprises other then the history of zeros that Cat stumbled upon on. Even the sword scenario was exactly what I expected to happen when it was first mentioned near the beginning of the book; where as the first book is unique in today’s world of Fantasy Fiction.
I haven't been this hooked on a book series in a long time, not since Mull's Five Kingdoms.This is NOT Harry Potter. Yes, there are references to it, slyly, and obviously the author had some inspiration, but this series stands on its own feet with a unique and interesting view of magic and the consequences of using it. There are twists and turns you don't expect and it's great seeing the main characters struggle to know what they should or shouldn't do, sometimes making the wrong and sometimes the right choices. Excellent writing and great personalities make it worth the read.
Excellent second book in the series. Adds new complexity to the way magic works and is used as well as unexpected plot twists. As more of the history of the world is explained, more interesting ideas and story lines should emerge for the author and for us to enjoy. Not sure if our heroine is going to grow up as the series expands as even this book takes place in only a few months of time. Given how adult the thinking is in the book it seems a bit strange coming from a just teen girl.Lots of prospects for more stories and can't wait to read them. Highly recommended reading if you like fantasy adventure.
I'n this book Cat returns. It's great to see the growth of this character. .She grew up thinking herself useless only to discover that she is more special then she can imagine. In this book Cat goes to school but the world has changed. Suddenly everyone is watching her. And a lot of people want to use her. I think Cat grew a lot in this book. She still has scars from her relationship with her family but I feel that she is starting to overcome them. Cat proves to be incredible smart and resourceful. I do get tired of her younger mentality. This is why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. Cat has such a negative view on herself. It's hard to tell if her parents really love her because Cat doubts her own self worth a lot. She is very insecure. But Like I said after learning somethings I do think she is getting better. The action in this one was great. We also got some world building. I love Akin and Rose. I'll be sad when it is over. Or another note I felt like The relationship between Cat and Alanna changed a little I hope they can reconcile more in the next book.
