Europe is in the grip of the Dark Ages, but there is a light in the dark: Baghdad. The great city has become a centre of learning, populated by scholars, merchants, and explorers from all across the known world. But danger lurks in the desert... and Dak, Sera and Riq must act fast to save the world's greatest library from utter destruction.
This book continues straight from the 4th episode to the 5th book in this incredible series. The first look and I am stoked, the front cover looks so realistic I could've touched it. The title 'Cave of Wonders' made me think of Aladdin's lamp and his genie. The way all the covers of the Infinity Ring series is to do with the book helps me to guess what the book will be about.
Even in the first few pages of the book there is a lot of possible danger and suspicion. I like the way that in the Cave of Wonders the impossible becomes the plausible. I am absolutely stoked at how good this book is, danger, mysteries, excitement and a fast pace makes this book near perfect.
This book is one of the darker of the Infinity Ring series books. Is has lots more danger that the others, it is rather similar to the second Infinity Ring book: Divide and Conquer because both of these books are about war and are the most danger-filled of the Infinity Ring books.
The end of this book is very sinister and dangerous and leads into the episode well. I've only played a small part of the episode but I am enjoying it a lot. The only thing that I don't like about the game is that it is very hard to move. I love this book and I hope the next Infinity Ring books will be just as good or better.
If book 4 was good, this one was awesome! The complexity of Arabian learning was astounding, and this book proves that fact! The book sounded historically accurate, and the best part is: this book was very fun to read. While I read, I enjoyed soaking up the knowledge while also being hooked on the storyline, it was amazing.
I keep hearing alternating stories about what the Dark Ages were, some people say that it was a period of time that we have barely any knowledge about, some say it was a time of great violence and despair, others say that something made the world "dark"; but whatever those stories are, this book shed a bit of light on this age (pun not intended). The storyline was awesome, it flowed well and was descriptive enough to allow my mind to play it out like a movie, so I am happy with that.
The cover is awesome, I love the picture of the lamp, it sets the whole "Arabian" theme, and just looks darn cool! While reading the book, I could almost hear the shouts and music of the Arabian marketplace that was mentioned in this book, it was an experience that was extraordinary, and it made me feel like I was actually right in the middle of ancient Baghdad, so now, this is a place that I want to travel to one day! To sum it all up: the book was awesome, the game episode was very fun to play, and I am looking forward to book 6, especially now that I know that the series is almost over! ;)
