    1. ***REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED ON BLOG JA ČITAM, A TI? IF YOU WANT TO WIN PAPERBACK OF THE SIX, GO TO BLOG AND FILL THE GIVEAWAY FORM.*** For starters, thank you, lovely readers, for visiting my blog and taking your time to read today's post which is dedicated to the new novel, The Six by KB Hoyle, coming out on April 5th. I was lucky to be part of The Six Blog Tour organised by The Writer's Coffee Shop. I'm guessing that first you'd like to know what The Six is about. Well, here's summary: Darcy [...]

    2. Review originally posted on Words at Home blog March 20, 2012: wordsathome/2012/03/theI didn’t know what to expect when I started reading The Six. I have seen it compared to (girl-who-reads/2011/02) Narnia and Harry Potter and this is where my apprehension set in. I haven’t read Narnia since I was about ten and I’ve never read Harry Potter so I was afraid that some of the magic would be lost on me. I also wasn’t sure how invested I would become in a group of thirteen year olds and their [...]

    3. Review originally posted on The Oaken Bookcase, May 15, 2012.Have you ever had a feeling when you visited a natural location that there was something magical about the area? Five children, now teenagers, have been having that same feeling each summer when their families have come to Cedar Cove to camp . This year, Darcy and her family have joined the other families, and that magical feeling is about to lead the six teenagers into another world – Aletheria.I loved reading about the world of Ale [...]

    4. From about the very first page of this book, I was completely captivated and couldn't stop reading till the end. Darcy, the main character is thirteen when the story begins, and at first I both loved her and was frustrated with her. She's shy and socially uncomfortable, and yet, she's embarrassed to be hanging around Samantha an overweight neightbor girl of the same age. I was shy and terrified in social situations at that age and beyond, and yet, I have a disability and remember too well how al [...]

    5. I love this book, this series.Darcy is annoying as heck when THE SIX starts out, much like most 13 year olds. I've recently HAD a 13 y/o and K.B. Hoyle GETS them. She does grow and learn, just like a real teen, throughout the book, and that continues throughout the series.I loved the new world this author has created. It's a mix of Narnia, HP and LotR.I've discovered a love for narks. Yahto Veli is my new hero.Yes, I read this for work, but couldn't put it down. And I'm ever so grateful that the [...]

    6. The Six. I was initially intrigued by the novel the moment I saw it in Netgalley and immediately requested it but for unknown reasons, I kept on passing through it in my reader and it became unnoticed for a couple of weeks. A couple of days ago, I started reading The Six and boy was I disappointed! Well, not in the way that you are probably thinking. I was very disappointed with myself for not reading the novel the moment I got it in my reader.The Six is a story of Darcy and 5 of her friends who [...]

    7. When I received this book to read, I really had no idea what to expect. I actually had a little trouble getting into the story and I would keep starting and stopping to read something else. But finally, I sat down and told myself I had to read this book, and it took me a few chapters but I finally got hooked! I found the book started off a little slow, giving too much information that I found didn’t really need to be done. But once I got past all that it seemed like the story really got starte [...]

    8. middle school & upGateway Chronicles #1Darcy is reluctantly on the way to the first ever family summer vacation. When she gets there she is immediately greeted by the always cheerful and bubbly Samantha. Sam is really nice but Darcy is an extreme introvert. In order to get some time alone, Darcy lies to Sam. This causes the other teens at the camp to mistrust her. During a hike, Darcy finds herself in another world called Alitheia. The people she meets are friendly and want her to come back [...]

    9. One day while hiking a young girl discovers a portal to another world, the magical land of Alithia. She soon learns of a prophecy claiming that she and five others are destined to save this mystical place. At first the six are unsure of their part in this ancient prophecy. But eventually they learn to work together as a team, united in their efforts to fulfill their destiny and save this enchanted land.Author K.B. Hoyle pens scenes that pop with vibrant details, making the world of Alitheia vivi [...]

    10. NetGalley ARCThe Six is an entertaining, other worldly series for kids (though it was more than easy to enjoy it as an adult too). Elements of the story remind me of The Chronicles of Narnia, what with the traveling to another world, the inventive creatures of fantasy, and the slight religious undertones. It took a while for this story to take off- Hoyle world builds for almost the first 25% of the story. But once the premise is set, there is not a dull moment. The plot is pretty straight forwar [...]

    11. I recieved a copy of this book for Christmas, and had heard about it before that, my fellow classmates practically ordering me to read it. It was on my list, granted, but several were before it, but I decided to rethink my order. From the very first chapter it drew me in, and I had no choice but to sit down and read the rest. It took me only a few hours to read, and immediately I went right back to the beginning to reread my favorite parts. The book was well-written, flowed smoothly from one cha [...]

    12. "The Six" is a great fantasy novel that I did not ever want to put down. When things like school, sleep, and eating kept me from reading I was constantly thinking about the book. I was considering what had transpired in what I had read thus far, and I was trying to make predictions about the things to come. "The Six" is definitely a 'page-turner'. I was always wondering what would happen to Darcy and her friends. K. B. Hoyle also created an entirely new creature, the Nark. The Nark is a fascinat [...]

    13. OMG, this is ridiculously good! A little bit Narnia, a little bit Harry Potter, all totally addictive. I couldn't put it down, and now I can't wait to start reading The Oracle. I have a feeling Tellius is going to turn into quite a lovely young man, perhaps one even to rival the spunky Perry Lucky Darcy! I highly recommend this series.

    14. As a reader who tends to avoid YA fiction like the plague, this series is of the few exceptions. It is comparable to that of Tolkien, Lewis, and Rowling, while keeping a distinct style and imagination of its own. In short: Read. it.

    15. This was a great story. A wonderful way to start the series. It sucked me in within the first few pages. See my full review at girl-who-reads/2011/02

    16. The Six kept me from doing a lot of my regular duties. I had a hard time putting it down. In reading it to my children, they would get upset when I closed it for the night.

    17. In my experience, the hardest age group for which one can find engaging, well-written stories, is middle-grade—and in particular for the third-fourth grade or so. These young people have moved beyond baby stories and picture books. They want magic and adventure—and their parent’s want things for them that are well-written, in full sentences and with the limited use of slang, and so forth. Well, young readers and their parents will be delighted to find The Six, by K.B. Hoyle. Drawing parall [...]

    18. I want to start by saying how excited I was to start The Six as soon as I had it in my hands. I had heard from the author and her readers how much it reminded readers of the Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter combined. What more do I need to be excited about a book?Let me start by talking about the main character: Darcy Pennington.As soon as I started reading, I already saw myself in Darcy’s character. Darcy is very shy which makes it hard for her to make friends, exactly like me at her age [...]

    19. Since I read so much last week, I did promise some reviews. So this is the first one. It's for The Six by K.B. Hoyle. This is book 1 of The Gateway Chronicles.I rarely feel compelled to review something. It does happen on occasion, but even then the most I'll do is review with a paragraph or two and leave it at that. Rarely do I review each book in a series as I'm planning to do here.As you can guess by the title of this post, this book is a YA novel. A good YA novel is something I enjoy immense [...]

    20. This book was amazing! I loved every minute of it. This book was a wonderful start to a wonderful series! I currently own two copies of it!

    21. Move over Narnia, make way for The Six!I have to admit, I didn't like the main character for a long time. Upon first meeting her, Darcy Pennington is a typical 13-year old girl with a typical family. Typical annoying little brother. Typical dad who's caring but a little oblivious to her feelings. Typical stern mom. But Darcy's throwing a major hissy fit because her family can't afford to send her to the equestrian camp that she's used to, and instead are opting for a family vacation at Cedar Cov [...]

    22. I really have no idea how I will approach this review, but having re-read the synopsis above I have realised that it fails to capture much of The Six. The story is pretty much as the blurb describes: thirteen year old awkward and socially inept girl finds out she needs needs to save the magical world of Alitheia with her friends.Darcy Pennington isn't just awkward - she is a self-centred individual who sincerely believes that the other kids at the camp are beneath her. She's much too good to be [...]

    23. What first sucked me into this book was Darcy. She's a really independent and relatable character. I don't know what it is, but something about Darcy just draws me in and makes me want to get to know her. Darcy likes to be alone, sort of like me at times, and she also is reallygative towards life in general. So, in this case, Darcy was sort of a halfway point for me: relatable, but a little bit of a jerk. I guess I understand her point of view, but I was still a little put off by Darcy's attitud [...]

    24. The Six is a fun story for all ages about six young teenagers that find themselves in the magical land of Alitheia. Their task is to rid the land of an evil that threatens the well-being of all the good inhabitants of that realm.There is no way you can avoid drawing a comparison between this series and The Chronicles of Narnia books by C.S. Lewis. In both cases, children find a portal to a magical world where they become the saviors of the inhabitants from an evil power. In both series, there is [...]

    25. Book Review- The Six by K.B. HoyleDarcy is not thrilled to be going to Michigan to this family camp this summer instead of the horse riding camp she usually goes to. Since her dad decided to open his own business, money is tight. So things are a little different from now on. Darcy dreads going. Her neighbor Sam is going with her family and she won’t leave Darcy alone now that her family is going too. Darcy drags her feet and basically refuses to have a good time or give anything a chance. She [...]

    26. I love YA literature, I had been Harry Potter fan for years now and I definitely enjoy "kids go on a magical adventure in the unknown world and save the world" stories. I thought this book was well written and fun, but I had some significant issues with it. The main problem for me was that while I found the adventure engaging and fun and characters, especially Darcy to be pretty well drawn, I felt that book resembled Narnia way too much for my taste. I have not read the reviews before I finished [...]

    27. THE SIX tells us the story of Darcy, a self-absorbed, hormonal brat of a thirteen year old (whose solipsism is her greatest defining feature) and her five companions - Sam, Amelia, Perry, Lewis and Dean. In a tale with parallels to the Narnia Adventures, the six find themselves crossing a magic portal to a parallel land in which magic abounds. Populated by fairy folk and mythological beings, Alitheia is a land of extraordinary beauty, clarity and magic. However, as with all good stories, Alithei [...]

    28. This is the best darn YA novel I've read in a very long time. It is the first in a series, and I'll tell you one thing. K.B. Hoyle has gotten it right. It is a fantasy novel along the lines of Narnia or the Harry Potter Series, but in my humble opinion it is better than both of those. Why?Because Darcy Pennington, the primary character, is flawed. She's not some perfect princess type character who always makes the right decision. She makes mistakes. A lot. And she is a typical teenaged girl. She [...]

    29. This story by K.B. Hoyle is very similar in its premise to the Chronicles of Narnia. Six teenagers discover a gateway to another world - the magical world of Alitehia with fairies, gnomes, and other creatures. A beneficent figure named Pateros who takes the form of a giant bear brings humans over from our world. The six teens discover their arrival has been prophesied and they each have a role to play in the conflict with the dark forces of Tselloch. In this first book of the series, Darcy is an [...]

    30. When first given the chance to read and review this amazing book, due to some health issues at that time was unable to get to this one. So first I would like to say sorry to the Amazing Author K.B. Hoyle.Now to say that I fell in love with the main character Darcy Pennington would be some what of an understatement. Why, because who doesn't like a underdog that comes from the back and just with out so much as a good:To read more of my review of this, Amazing YA First Book In A Fantasy Series:Brea [...]
