Paraworld Zero

In this fantasy novel, the main purpose of the story was to
entertain. It was not a really deep novel, even though
there were a few personal and moral conflicts. It was an
action-packed story set in a series of parallel worlds.
Most of the characters had magical abilities. The main
character, a boy named Simon, leaves planet Earth with a
magic user trainee named Tonya. They are stranded on a
paraworld completely devoid of magic and make friends there.
Soon, Simon discovers that he is the only person that can
perform magic on that particular planet. With their
newfound friends, Simon and Tonya must save the world and
make their way off the planet. In the other paraworlds,
sinister events are taking place. The ending answers the
immediate questions, but leaves some questions to be
resolved later in the series.

As a fantasy and science fiction lover, I greatly enjoyed
the story. However, if you are not into fantasy, it may not
be the best choice for you. The author did a great job
creating a setting completely unique to his series. The
plot could be a little jumpy or rushed at times, but it was
fairly easy to follow the story line. It is a must read for
anyone who loves fantasy and for anyone who loves a good
adventure/coming-of-age novel.
