andlt;bandgt;Let the Games Begin....andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt; Quillan is a territory on the verge of destruction. The people have lost control of their own future and must struggle simply to survive. The only chance they have of finding a better life is by playing the Quillan Games. Hosted by a strange pair of game masters, Veego and LaBerge, the games are a mix of sport and combat. They use the people of Quillan as pawns for their amusement as they force them to enter competitions that range from physical battles, to impossible obstacle courses, to computer-driven tests of agility. To triumph in the games is to live the life of a king. To lose is to die. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; This is the dangerous and deadly situation Bobby Pendragon finds on Quillan. He quickly realizes that the only way to save this troubled territory is to beat Veego and LaBerge at their own games and dismantle their horrible fun house. But there is more at stake for Bobby. The prize for winning the Quillan Games may be discovering the truth of what it really means a Traveler.

Shoshana, November 21, 2008 (view all comments by Shoshana)
The Quillan Games is considerably faster than the previous volume in the series, but still sloppy. There's sloppy proofreading for homophones, sloppy plotting, and dull writing. Again MacHale has been given too many pages and not enough editing. I'm very sorry to report that the next book in the series, The Pilgrims of Rayne, has 576 pages. I didn't enjoy or believe in the premises of this installment, or the protagonists' seeming inability to retain important information about how Saint Dane operates. Still, the action moves forward reasonably well and MacHale has done a good job of integrating material from previous books that appeared unremarkable at the time but now forms the basis for some plot points. I applaud this, and the reveals about the nature of the Travelers, and hope that the three remaining books continue this trend.
