Everville: The Rise of Mallory by Roy Huff is the third book in the Everville series that will entertain readers with its adventure and drama. The journey continues where Owen Sage is victorious and he goes on undefeated, but his last battle in Everville gives rise to a new villain, Mallory. Owen Sage must now save all the species of Everville from this villain. Mallory uses the help of a powerful dragon this time to destroy the people. As Owen gets ready for a new battle in Everville, it exposes him to new creatures, true friendships and the discovery of new insights. With its whimsical creatures, well developed characters and adventures, this book is a gripping tale that will appeal to all sci-fi and fantasy lovers.

The introduction of a new race, the Alarians, and the two realms in the story make it unique and original. The book is fast paced with a lot of action and magical creatures to hold your attention. The style of writing is descriptive, yet concise and crisp. All the characters are well defined, making it easy for readers to connect with them better. The author deftly weaves in the sub-plots, twists, turns and characters into the main theme. With this kind of theme, the story is fluid and will not disappoint readers.

I liked everything about the book. It is original, action packed, whimsical, adventurous with some great characters and excellent writing. The different realms give the story many layers and keep readers entertained. It is a book that holds a lot of excitement and surprises for readers.
