My favorite book in Guardians out of books 1-7 (because that's all I've read Embarassed) isn't book 7 because it was too sad when Phillip died. My favorite book is book 5 because I like how it's about Primrose and Eglantine, not the band. Even though I like the band, it's always nice to have something new. I think it's cool in the end where Eglantine shares a little bit of her brother's blood, Kludd, when she kills the Nyra's egg. I also like how the two friends unite again after there many conflicts.


My least favorite book is book 2. I mean, it's okay, but it gets boring after a while when they are journeying so long. But it's okay, I mean, I do like how they meet the Great Tree near the end. It was pretty funny, but it's no comparison to book 5, the Shattering.


Worst book: 2, The Journey
Best book: 5, The Shattering


What's your favorite and least favorite books?

Excluding the legends, everything post-book 6 was the worst book. I'm one of those people.

But The Shattering and The Siege were my favorites.

Gyfore, I agree. And those two books are also my favorite.

I'm pretty partial to The Burning, and like Gyfore, I see the original six books (or by a stretch, books seven and eight) as being the better place to stop, rather than The War of the Ember.

The War of the Ember was rushed and full of plot holes.

The Legends books were my favorites. As for least favorite...that's hard. I tried to enjoy all the books. Probably War of the Ember, because of the weird ending, or the Shattering because Ginger annoyed the heck out of me.

Book 1 or book 6 was my favorite... I disliked all the books with blue owls and the Striga... Least favorite was probably War of the Ember.

I actually enjoyed the River of Wind.

And I just went over the books and decided:
I LOVED the Hatchling. That was a great one. Plus all the Legends books. But I disliked Exile and wasn't too hot over the last two books of the series. That being said, I still enjoyed all of them.

Alot of people don't like the War of Ember or The Burning.

It is because of the flaws. People where eager to find out what will happen only to find it was a flop.

the shattering was the best book for me, I've re-read that one the most. the seige is really great, too.

1 - 6 is, like everyone else says, the best set. almost every single book after those is boring; 7 was good, 8 was okay. the others? really slow paced, especially for such short books. 9 - 11 legends, especially 10, were particularly boring... war of the ember was a book that focused on the war's preparation and hardly any of the actual war.

if I were to choose my least favorite book out of the first six, it would be the journey. I feel like it took way too long in some parts... that's probably also why I'm happy that in the movie, they cut to the chase and got to the tree more quickly.

Oh my gosh, I forgot about the Siege! That's a good one too. You're right, Mikey.

1-6 and 9-11 were my favorites for sure, I have to say I'm not too big of a fan of Coryn or the blue owls, that really stretched it out too long for me...

I will say, I got excited about the Hatchling. I liked that book a LOT. So much potential for conflict -- there's that secretly good underdog in an evil organization, trying to join the very ones who should hate him. I was really stoked about it. Then the books after that felt like a let-down...

Except the Legends, of course.
