Quinn is no hero. He just happens to have a talent for remembering everything that he gets told or he sees.
The King wants to race against his enemies and be the first to map the world. To do this, he's holding a race.
Quinn gets asked to join the school and have a chance of being the scribe for one of the three explorers in the race. He'd prefer to stay home with his mam, but his family are farmers and money is tight. Just for going to the school, he'll bring home more income than his father would in a year.
Despite his desires to the contrary, the Desolander slave Zain chooses Quinn to be his scribe. As the voyage begins, Zain mentors him and teaches him practical skills like how to fight.
By the end of this book, he's no hero with indomitable confidence. But Quinn has become an adventurer.
Race to the End of the World is an effortless read that speeds along. You can read it fast and it's like watching a movie. Tait uses concrete nouns and action verbs to propel the story forward. The dialogue is fast-paced and free of fluff.
If you loved Stardust, The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, you'll have fun reading this.
