5つ星のうち 3.0 A good start for a debut author 2012/7/26
By Zoe - (Amazon.com)
形式:Kindle版
In "Rebellion", Rachel Cotterill creates a world where children are raised in schools, ignorant of their parentage, and assessors assign professions to students upon graduation. So, what does a girl do when she believes she deserves more than the assignment she was given? "Rebellion" follows the Eleanor's story as she rebels against her assigned fate and searches for the elusive Assassin's guild. The first half of the story covers ~ a year and focuses on Eleanor's search for the guild. The second half echoes Harry Potter and focuses on her two years at the school for assassins.

The first half of the book was great. Eleanor is gutsy and curious, a fantastic heroine. She tumbles in and out of scrapes, surviving on her wits, her desire to find the guild, and some measure of luck. When she finds the guild, however, the action slows down significantly. We see her in potions class, projectile class, getting outfitted for clothes and daggers, reluctantly hanging out in bars with her classmates. There is a competition at the end of the book--a series of three trials that she must go through in order to compete for a seat on the council. (Does it sound like Harry Potter yet?) The tension leaked out of the second half of the book and it just didn't end with the same bang as which it started.

The descriptions in the book are detailed. For the most part, it works because it paints a detailed picture of Eleanor's surroundings. After awhile, however, it felt repetitive. I started skipping over sections where she describes the tiles on the pavement and the mosaic patterns on the floor. There are also many scenes that focus just on what Eleanor is doing, i.e., moving through the environment with little interaction with other characters. (Admittedly, it could be a function of the story, i.e., a woman's solitary search for a mysterious organization.) It's a shame because the dialogue in the book is tight and snappy. I found myself skipping through Eleanor-only scenes to find the next scene where others are brought in to interact with her.

Still, this book was definitely worth reading and I will be picking up the sequel.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A Fantastic Book 2010/11/25
By L. Hutchings - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
This is a really interesting book. It reads like fantasy genre, but with a unique social setup. I was drawn in by Eleanor's situation and found this very difficult to put down. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be looking for the next book.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Great book! 2010/11/24
By Robert J Stelling - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
I am an avid reader and am always looking for a new fiction book to read. Rachel does a wonderful job of bringing Eleanore's adventures to life. I was drawn in from the first paragraph as it captured my imagination with 'the man wearing a grew tunic was carrying a large box as he followed the head mistress'. We will all want to know what awaits each of the girls. The book is easy to follow and has me wanting more!

My family passes on these books, and I plan on sharing Rebellion: chronicles of charanthe with them in book form and on the kindle as I have others. A great holiday gift for any reader in the family!

5つ星のうち 4.0 A breath of fresh air. 2011/4/27
By Lyn Meadows - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
Although fantasy is not my usual genre of choice, I enjoyed this book a lot. For one thing, unlike most fantasy books, this book contained no magic or magical and mythical beings. Just a lot of humans who had to rely on solely on their wits and intelligence to survive. Other than the lack of magic, though, it followed the classical fantasy set up. For one thing, the story takes place in an alternate world where swords and knives are the weapons of choice, and horses, carts and ships are the methods of transportation. In addition, the plot centers around a girl, who is the first female to be allowed into the secret assassins academy. She must compete against a number of males, some of which have been raised with the whole purpose of becoming assassins. How she uses her intelligence and her totally human skills to survive is a great story.

The characters which Rachel has included in the story are engaging and fun to read about. Most of them are multi-faceted, and you get the distinct impression that they are not always what they seem to be on the surface. One of my favorite parts of the book were the times when the various characters had to figure out challenges. Here again, the surface was only a part of what was actually required to complete the items, and the characters had to look at the many layers in order to be successful.

In addition, this book is the first of a trilogy. I am looking forward to the next installment to see how the story progresses and the characters develop.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Not Only for the Fantasy Aficionado 2010/10/23
By Josephine Hellberg - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
This novel is as charming as it is exciting, and it contains everything I seek in a novel; mysteries, challenges, friendship, but foremost, strong characters who are easy to sympathise with, even when they do the unexpected and take a liberating step away from convention.

The novel is written in a style which is easy to follow, and the dialogue feels natural and engaging -- and doesn't reveal more to the reader than it would to the main character. It is a definite plus as it allows one to join the journey, look for clues and solve the puzzles alongside with the characters!

My overall impression with the novel is that it in a convincing manner shows that there are more possibilities available to a person than meets the eye; that the world is ripe with adventure -- does one only dare to cease the opportunity to do so. And that is something Eleanor, the main character, does with inspiring conviction, rendering this novel a satisfying read for everyone -- and not only the fantasy aficionado.
