LoveReading View on World of Warriors: A New Hero

August 2015 Book of the Month  Trick is an ordinary kid, who lives with his dad and likes comics and Parkour (free-running) a lot, school less so. Dodging bullies he takes refuge in the British Museum among the exhibits for a new Warriors of the World display and that’s when things go very strange. The pendant left to him by his mother, who was a soldier, seems to react with one of the exhibits and, knocked unconscious by the bully, Trick wakes up in a different, and dangerous world. There he joins a band of warrior heroes to fight the terrifying Skull Army. Based on the hugely popular World of Warriors strategy game this offers non-stop action and adventure and the legions of World of Warriors fans will enjoy every battle.


World of Warriors: A New Hero Synopsis

Richard 'Trick' Hope is used to getting into trouble, but not like this...On the run from bullies, Trick finds himself transported to the mystical Wild lands, a place where the greatest warriors throughout history have been summoned to fight in a battle for survival - from Romans and Vikings to Knights and Samurai! A cryptic old man tells Trick that he's there for a reason - to deliver the Wild lands from the evil Boneshaker, who rules with an army of terrifying minions. Trick has been chosen to form a band of the seven greatest warriors to defeat this terrible enemy. As Trick begins his epic quest the stakes couldn't be higher: defeat Boneshaker or never see home again.Andrea Reece

  • Alex Hall, age 9 - 'I like ninjas, samurai and adventure and this book is about them. I liked all the characters names e.g. Toki, Mumgo and Trick. I also found out a samurai defence weapon is called a Naginata. Awesome!'
  • Tomasz Hawryszczuk, age 10 - 'A fantastic adventure story based on the world wide phenomenon of the game. Emerge yourself into the game with "Trick" once he is trapped in the mystical world. This book was awesome.'
  • Charlotte Cassidy, age 10 - 'A brilliant page-turner of a book based on the adventure game World of Warriors. I loved every second of it and am looking forward to the next books in the series.'
  • Louie Mee, age 9 - 'The plot of this story was very good, however it seemed long winded in getting to the point.'
  • Sue Wilsher - 'Alongside the action, there are many humorous moments which lighten the overall tone of the story. This is a very enjoyable book.'
  • Alexander Bisland, age nearly 10! - 'This book is about a boy who goes on an adventure to a different land and this is how his adventure begins!'
  • Henry Smith - 'Apologies, I did not finish this book as I really did not enjoy it.'
