I guess this one seemed especially vicious because it was over something so trivial.
At stake was a couple gallons of water. Regular old everyday water. Water here is more valuable than food, more valuable than treasure. I know. Starting tomorrow, life is going to be very different for me. Before I tell you about it, I need to let you know what happened since I landed back on Zadaa. Maybe writing it down will help me understand it a little better myself.
But more about that later. I also have a good idea of what the turning point is here on Zadaa.

I think it has something to do with water…or the lack of it. This is our next challenge. And so we go. I first want to tell you about the battle that happened soon after I arrived. That, and because one of the warriors involved in the fight was my friend. The Traveler from Zadaa. Do not look anyone in the eye.

It is dangerous for a Rokador to be seen in the city. I knew what she meant. There were two tribes living in this area of Zadaa. The Batu lived above ground in the cities. They were a dark-skinned race, made so because they lived for generations under the hot, desert sun. Loor was a Batu. The other tribe was the Rokador. They lived underground in a labyrinth of tunnels that spread throughout Zadaa. The Rokador were a light-skinned race. So with my white skin and light brown hair, I pretty much looked like a Rokador.
And since there was some serious bad blood between the Batu and the Rokador, making myself invisible up here on the surface was a smart idea. To that end, Loor had me wearing heavy, dark clothing that covered my head and arms. It was great for a disguise, not so great for keeping cool. On a cool day. So I was sweating like a fiend. Or at least a fiend in a sauna wearing a winter coat. Loor looked straight ahead as she strode along. Her jaw set. She had her game face on.
I know you guys can picture her. Her once almost-waist-length black hair was a bit shorter now, falling to her shoulders. I guess the long hair got in the way when she did her training. As you know, Loor is a warrior. Since then, she has been elevated to full-fledged warrior status. She even looks the part. This girl is totally cut. But whatever.

You get the idea. The warriors here had to be protected, but cool. The muscles in her long arms and legs flexed as she moved down the street, making her look even more formidable. So to speak. Have them change the schedule. Find a relief pitcher.
The Rivers of Zadaa
Or I could get lucky and they would execute me. I will not let anything stand in our way. Running to catch up was Saangi. You know, one of those young servants who are assigned to knights to take care of their every need. The Ghee warriors of Zadaa operated pretty much like the knights of old, without the Spam-can suits. She handed Loor a small, leather container that was about the size of a canteen.

I figured Saangi knew better too. She had the dark skin of the Batu, but unlike Loor, her hair was cut tight to her head, like a guy. It's nice to find a decent series and not have to spend a lot of time searching out the next book to read. This series is quite long and so is good for months of entertainment. I recommend the entire series and this book is every bit as good as the others I've read in this series. I never get tired of listening to Pendragon on audible. I swear every book I think it can't get better it does.
I loved that Bobby went to Loor's territory in this one because I loved learning about Zadaa. I almost don't want to continue with this series because I know eventually it'll be over! Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? I had read some unenthusiastic reviews by other adults and the Reality Bug and Black Water weren't as good as the first few, so I was worried that this book would be a disappointment.

It was far from it. I think this is the best Pendragon book yet.
watch MacHale's ability to come up with more and more creative and unexpected things is amazing. The character development is rich and as always the narrative performance was fantastic. This book made me want to stay on the treadmill to keep listening I love listening to William Dufris! From book to book he always remembers his characters, their personalities, and most importantly-their voices. This was a great book and it really starts to bring an air of finality and wonder to the series.
