The new main character in this novel is Penelope, the last human left on an abandoned colony, whose entire social life from infancy has consisted of interacting with and serving her electronic benefactor, the ambitious "real-time strategy" game character, Lord Scanthax. Given that Scanthax is from a RTS mindset, these worlds have been decimated, with their materials converted to his purposes. So, rather than an exciting journey filled with interesting characters and situations, as in the other books, we have a breezy walk through an empty wasteland, a trip through another portal, and rinse and repeat. Several notable events happen along the way, but none of it compares to the exciting swashbuckling action and adventure from Epic and Saga.

Penelope is a teenager ensnared in Edda. Can she uncover the truth about her human past and gain her freedom? A fast-moving fantasy from the author of internationally acclaimed Epic and Saga. Edda has all the exciting elements of avatars, mythical beings, magic, and cataclysmic battles, but also challenges the older reader to think deeply about humanity and power.

His facebook readers page is here. I think this is a great continuation to the series and as usual Conor Kostick does a wonderful job of blending fantasy and high tech ideas.

The plot is full of engrossing adventures and unexpected turns; and plenty of awesome battles of course. Nowhere is this more subtly and yet forcefully drawn than in the closing sequence. It sounds brilliant though, and I love the covers, especially Edda! Wondrous Reads a striking demonstration of the continuation and playfulness of story itself At a time when so much young adult fiction seems determined to shock its readers with its sensationalism or bore them with its banalities, it is refreshing to read a novel that steers well clear of both tendencies Oisin McGann, www.

While, like its two predecessors, the novel is set in the futuristic fantasy domains of an electronic video-games-playing world, the origins of its narrative technique lie in the myths, legends and folk tales which constitute our oldest stories Evening Echo writing is always challenging, always thought-provoking and imaginative. My Favourite Books this most remarkable feat of imagination has the reader exploring the meaning of humanity, life and emotions as well as being taken on a fantastic and exciting ride through several amazing virtual realities.

School Librarian Magazine Continuity is created with the earlier novels in the series, in the form of characters who we know and like, while at the same time there is inventiveness, especially in the figure of Penelope who is physically on a life-support system but whose avatar is free to roam worlds.

Kostick challenges the young reader intellectually, but the heart is always in the right place too. This book would work equally well for younger and older teenagers. Sunday Independent Reader Reviews I think this is a great continuation to the series and as usual Conor Kostick does a wonderful job of blending fantasy and high tech ideas.

Both vide goodreads.

Book Reviews , Online Content , Science Fiction Edda is a very good read with an interesting storyline that is well told and enjoyable. I recommend it if you like exciting fantasy adventure stories, but, as it is the third in a series you may wish to read Epic and Saga by the same author, first. In the opening chapter we meet Penelope, a woman who spends almost all her conscious life in the game world, Edda. Through a series of portals created by Penelope he has also conquered a chain of other gaming worlds. Meanwhile, in Saga, a high-tech gaming world containing millions of electronic intelligences, we meet Erik, a human who appears via a female avatar named Cindella sic.
