Do you believe in other worlds? Do you wish you could travel to those worlds? Bobby Pendragon didn’t until his Uncle Press knocked on his door one day and ordered Bobby to come with him. From there, Bobby and his uncle drove to an abandoned subway station where they arrived at a door, an old, wooden door with a star on it, and strode inside. Upon entering the tunnel, a seemingly endless tunnel, Uncle Press yelled out “Denduron”. “This endless tunnel”, he said, “is known as a flume”. “Flumes allow you to travel to other territories where Travelers must help each territory go through a turning point”. The flume lights up and off Bobby and his uncle went to the territory known as Denduron. Denduron is a primitive, medieval territory. The Milago are the slaves and the Bedoowan are the rulers who are vicious and murderous to the Milago. Bobby and his uncle must assist the Milago in improving their relationship with their rules. Will Bobby and his uncle succeed in their endeavors? Can the Milago finally get them better treatment from the Bedoowan?    

The Merchant of Death by D.J. MacHale is a serpentine story of unseen events and twisting action where irony can happen when you least expect it. D.J. MacHale excels in his creative writing style in this popular series opener. I would recommend this book to any eccentric reader who likes action, suspense, adventure, and the possibility of other life in this universe. The Merchant of Death is an excellent, exciting read by a fantastic author. If you choose to read this book, I guarantee that you won’t be able to put it down until you have completed if and headed for the next book in the series.
