Last Gate of the Emperor

We rated this book:


Last Gate of the Emperor by Kwambe Mbala is a cool story about a boy, a girl, and a robot lioness. The boy, Yared, played an augmented-reality game that caused an attack on his city. His uncle Moti disappeared and then all the stories that he heard came true. Now Yared has to find his uncle and make sense of everything that is happening, but he cannot do it alone. His pet robot lioness joins him on the quest, as does his competitor in the game, a girl named Ibis.

The plot of the story was entertaining and made plenty of sense. It always got interesting when the main characters made a daring escape. I got to know the characters very well and I liked them. They didn’t seem very real but they were easy to relate to. The language of the story flowed well and it was easy to read. There were no illustrations in this book, unfortunately. Kids aged ten and older who love science fiction would enjoy this book. I think it could actually make a great series. I would absolutely recommend this book! I couldn’t stop reading it!
