4 Feb 2010

The Arcanum: a world like our own, but twisted beyond reality. Here, a deadly Game is played out, with prizes for some - and danger for all. When Cat, Blaine, Flora and Toby defeated the Game's Masters, they thought they had won. They thought wrong. Now, the Game is broken, and soon the four unlikely friends realise: it's not just their own lives at risk - but the future of the whole world...

The thrilling sequel to the critically acclaimed THE GAME OF TRIUMPHS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it =) 28 April 2011
I read the first book of this duology and couldn't wait to buy the next part. I wasn't disappointed when I finally got it. Continuing from the previous book, Master of Misrule provides more background on the 4 main characters as well as developing them as characters. The idea of a parallel world sitting right beside London and the starngely surreal effects of the arcana was what I liked the best, perhaps because London is where I live and it isn't very difficult to imagine that something like this could happen. Anyways, this books a good read and I absolutely loved it. I'm looking forward to any new books by Powell (hopefully there will be some more).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read since the prequel! 28 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is one reason and one reason only that I've given this book five stars: Amazon wouldn't let me give it more!

I intended to read it on holiday (and must confess I haven't finished it yet, so probably will)... but I thought it wouldn't hurt to read the first page. Just the first, just to whet my appetite...

A hundred pages later I finally managed to put it down long enough to make a cup of tea.

Miss Powell is an extraordinary story teller, she only needs a paragraph to get you completely snagged and desperate for more!

If you liked The Game of Triumphs, you'll love this... don't even think, just hit "buywithoneclick" now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Live To Read 10 Jan 2012
By Chels - Published on
The Game is back and just as deadly as the first book. The reader will enjoy reconnecting with the characters from the first book. Cat and her friends thought the Game was finished and they could go, hopefully with their prizes in hand. However, nothing is ever that easy. The Master of Misrule has tricked them, when he got out of the hot water he landed in due to his own machinations he turned on Cat and her friends. Cat and her friends are understandably angry and desire to get revenge on the Master of Misrule. More than their pride is at stake, the Game is seeping out into the real world and chaos will ensue without Cat and her friends taking the proper course of action.

Cat is still an interesting character. All of her friends display bravery and loyalty to one another. The reader will like the dynamics between the friends and get to know each of them very well. The Master of Misrule appears very fictitious at first, but the reader will slowly realize that he has grown in him/her and become the evil antagonist the reader expects. There are not too many other characters that are focused upon, the reader will get to know Cat and her friends to the point where he/she can predict their actions/thoughts fairly accurately.

The events were fast-paced, Cat and her friends do not have any chance to breathe as they rush to stop the Master of Misrule's nefarious plans. The plot is much the same as the first book in some ways, but different in others as Cat and her friends technically conquered the game. Teen/middle grade readers will love this novel.
