‘Arcta the Mountain Giant’ is the third in the Beast Quest series. In it Tom must free Arcta the Mountain Giant from the evil wizard Malvel’s spell with the help of his horse Storm, his friend Elena and her wolf Silver. His shield now contains some power from both Ferno the Fire Dragon and Sepron the Sea Serpent which should come in handy.
I think this beast is a very good one, especially because it’s blind-folded. He senses Tom as he’s not able to see him. I think Malvel should have put some sort of lock on him instead of the blindfold if he wanted to stop Tom from freeing the Beast.
The avalanches that Arcta creates were very cool. I really like it when Tom walked across the dangerous mountains with rock falling around him, I couldn’t stop reading until I found out what happened. I was very worried about Elenna and Silver when they get trapped.
This is a very exciting book, when I play Beast Quest with my brothers we always have Arcta in our game.

In this, the second in the Beast Quest series, Tom and Elenna go on an exciting adventure to find Sepron the Sea Serpent and free it from an evil curse which the bad wizard Malvel put on it. In this thrilling book Tom battles with the sea serpent, will he succeed in this underwater quest to defeat the evil wizard’s plans?
Sepron is a very scary beast, I like him very much. He’s the scariest monster I have seen so far in the Beast Quest books apart from Torgor the Minotaur [Beast Quest Number 13].
In each of the Beast Quest books Malvel just leaves Tom and Elenna to fight the beasts, I think he should do more to try to stop them. Maybe he could put protective spells around the beasts, which Tom and Elenna can only break by cracking a really difficult code.
I really like the illustrations in this book; they look really cool and are very detailed.
This book is pretty exciting. I am actually on number 13 of the Beast Quest series. I don’t think this is quite as good as the later Beast Quest books in which Tom has golden armour to help him; they just seem to get better and better.

Cosmo, a human boy from planet Earth, thinks he’s going on a galaxy tour, but then finds out that he’s to become the newest member of G-Watch [kind of like space secret agents] and has universe powers in him. He needs to use his powers to defeat Rockhead, the first of five aliens sent to attack the galaxy by the evil Kaos.
Cosmo was a cool character, I thought it was brilliant that he could fly spaceships and use his power to make a sword. He has a mutation suit which lets him turn into any alien he wishes, including ones covered in slime!
I really like the pictures in the book; they were a bit like Manga drawings.
Like with the Beast Quest series, there are 4 collectors cards in the book which you can cut out.
I think this is a very good book; it’s like a mixture of Beast Quest and Ben 10. On the back of the book it says it’s for 7+, but my brother, who is 6, really enjoyed it. I think this book is more for boys than girls. I can’t wait to start the next books in the series.
