6th Grade Entry - Makuta's Revenge

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Dallin’s entry. Thanks, Dallin!

Makuta’s Revenge
C.A. Hapka
Scholastic, 93p.

The six Toa, Tahu, Gali, Lewa, Kopaka, Onua, and Pohatu, have greater elemental energy then ever, after evolving into Toa Nuva. After their struggles with the Bohrok Queens, Cahdok and Gahdok, the Toa Nuva are weary and tired. The matoran of each koro have discovered mysterious symbols of power for each Toa, only to find that an unknown thief takes them. With the symbols gone, the Toa have no elemental power. The next day, long after the twin suns rise, the Toa find the thief… or thieves rather. The thieves turn out to be quite, but not quite, familiar, a cousin to the Bohrok known as the Bohrok-Kal. With no power, the Toa are defenseless against the Bohrok-Kals’ crushing power. Now the six Toa Nuva need to make as Lewa says, a “quick-smart plan”, against the six Bohrok-Kal.

Toa Lewa is the brightest Toa Nuva of them all, which is kind of like me. He like all the others in Le-Koro has a weird speech pattern, like me, I always get my words in a jumble. Lewa Nuva is the Toa of air and sky. His elemental power is control of the “air-wind”. Out of all the pessimistic Toa, Lewa is one of two Toa that has an optimistic view on the situation.

I like this book because it is an action-packed, tension building adventure. It also has a unity building experience. That is tied with realizing destiny and accepting duty. It has a lot of building spirit and intelligence. It also has a lesson of learning that siblings are more important than you.

This book is for people that could go for a fun easy read every once and a while. If you like adventures, you will like this book. Makuta’s Revenge also as a few soft spots for the people that like them.
