    Ok, lets go... Horizon; Deadzone was a book that makes you sit at the edge of your seat when you read it. It's so intense, with so many scenes happening at one time that you just give up and stay up all night reading. I finished this novel quickly, for it was such a short story with lots of things attacking you at one time. But , I made a list of the pros and cons so, let's go- Cons- I thought it was kind of obvious that the group of authors that wrote these books so far ( Scott Westerfield and Jennifer A. Nielsen ) are stretching the series so they can make the novels a "seven book series". In my opinion, the series should have been done by the second book. I think the only "Cons" in this book was that, affecting the whole series. Now.. Pros- I really loved how JN put everything together at the end. I loved how a question is born and when you finish the book you get your answer. I also love how every character has their backstory and own personality. In all, I really liked this one. It gave you a break from all those contemporary novels. So do I like it? Yes, yes I do. Do I want to be with the characters on their adventure? No, no I do not

        Do you like adventure, suspense, and action? Then Horizon: Deadzone is for you. Quick background story: A plane heading to China unexpectedly crashes. There are no survivors except for 8 singled-out kids who find themselves in a hybrid, alien-like place where nothing makes sense. It's survival, and they must work together. Now, in Horizon: Deadzone we start as the now 7 kids (self-named Team Killbot) travel through a blazing hot, sandy desert where the sand will swallow you up if even one tiny drop of liquid falls onto the sand. Will the group of survivors get closer to finding a way out of this crazy place? Or will the treacherous sand get the best of them all? This book was a really exciting addition to the suspenseful Horizon series! I loved how the author was descriptive and she shaped the characters very well. I was hooked through all the twists and turns of Team Killbot and I can't wait for the next book to come out!!

          Horizon: Deadzone is a great book. If you're new to the series, it's about seven kids trying to survive an alien-like jungle after being the only ones to survive a plane crash. Now, only six remain. The six find a desert, and they think their escape is beyond it. But the desert opens many questions. How is it that your whole body can drop into the sand without warning? What creature could possibly be lurking in the sand? And what happened to Oliver? This book will answer your questions. The amazing thing about this book is that it is only book two out seven and already so great! I strongly advise that you buy this book!

            We return to the constant fight for survival with the 7 remaining survivors of the impossible plane crash. Only now, the stakes are even higher. All that lies between the kids and rescue is a seemingly endless ocean of sand. That moves. This book was even better than the first. Suspenseful, heart-wrenching, and keeping you on edge from the first words to the next book's title!
