    I liked this book because I thought Sanapo was a good enemy and it was cool how Balisk could split in two and how Sepron had to help.

    This book has great settings but my favourite has to be when Balisk splits into 2 parts because I didn’t know what would happen next!

    My favourite character is Elena’s Uncle. Although he was old he still helped Tom and Elena complete their 1st quest.

    Overall I rate this book 5/5 – if you want to start collecting Beast Quest now is the time…
