Publisher's Summary

Even though ­thirteen-­year-­old Marcus Kanenas is confined to a wheelchair, he sees himself as a survivor and a dreamer. In fact, his favorite dream is of a world far away, a world where magic is as common as air, where animals tell jokes, and where trees beg people to pick their fruit. He even has a name for this place - Farworld.
When Marcus magically travels to Farworld, he meets Kyja, a girl without magic in a world where spells, charms, and potions are everywhere, and Master Therapass, a master wizard who has kept a secret hidden for 13 years, a secret that could change the fate of two ­worlds. But the Dark Circle has learned of Master Therapass’ secret and their evil influence and power are growing.
Farworld’s only hope is for Marcus and Kyja to find the mythical Elementals - ­water, land, air, and ­fire - ­and convince them to open a drift between the ­worlds. As Kyja and Marcus travel to Water Keep, they must face the worst the evil Dark Circle can throw at them - Summoners, who can command the living and the dead; Unmakers, invisible creatures that can destroy both body and soul; and dark mages known as Thrathkin S’Bae.
Along the way, Marcus and Kyja will discover the truth about their own heritage, the strength of their friendship, and the depths of their unique ­powers.

Most Helpful

Bad writing and bad imagination. Poor voice over.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Maybe an eight yr old.

What was most disappointing about J. Scott Savage’s story?

Poorly thought out confrontations. Unimaginative resolutions. Lame descriptions. Characters that were too dumb.

How could the performance have been better?

Bad effects that didn't need to be there. For example the voice that did the trees, sounded like a robot!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Water Keep?

It's a decent story just bad writing throughout. I can't believe he found a publisher as well as wrote two more books. A good editor could have made a big difference!

Any additional comments?

You have been warned! Don't waste your credit! I typically like most YA authors but not this one!
