One thought on “Alistair Grim's Odd Aquaticum

  1. Shelby *trains flying monkeys*

    This book picks up where the first one left off If you have not read the first book in the series you are still okay with this one though, the author does a really good job of catching the reader up in a way that does not feel info dumpy Alistair Grim and his crew are bent on taking down Prince Nightshade Aboard the Odditorium the plan is starting to take shape The Odditorium is the flying magical place created by Grim.This is a series I normally wouldn t be interested in Steampunky stuff is usu [...]

    Please note that my review is based off of an uncorrected advance proof that I received in exchange for an honest review, so the version I read may be different than the finalized one And it was autographed Before I go into my thoughts, I wanted to describe something You know the sensation you got as a kid around Halloween and Christmas that certain warmth and familiarity that felt electric, like magic was in the air Well, that s how I would define a Classic Disney feeling And this book has it.T [...]

    This was a real corker The first book in the Odditorium series Alistair Grim s Odditorium was an incredibly fun book of magical adventure featuring a young orphan boy named Grubb and his experiences after meeting Mr Alistair Grimm inventor, fortune hunter, and some say mad sorcerer and his amazing Odditorium This second book picks up about one month after the extraordinary events of the first, and is, if possible, filled with even of everything that made the first one so great I do highly recom [...]

    Blind me What a great addition to the series Alistair Grim s Odd Aquaticum is the second book in this New York Times bestselling middle grade series I was spellbound by the first book, so I was excited when the author and Disney Hyperion sent me the sequel for review And a signed copy, no less Aquaticum picks up where the first book left off, chronicling the events of the Odditorium and its crew as they travel a treacherous underwater world to take down the evil Prince Nightshade It has all the [...]

    This was a blast My son and I hated to see this book end This is steampunk for middle grade readers, but older individuals who are still a kid at heart will love this The cast of unusual character s are amazing This is a Disnay novel, and it really felt like it As a kid I loved Disney This would have been a childhood favorite of mine The adventure was amazing, the characters are so unique, and I loved the pacing of the story There were no slow, long winded parts of this story It is really a sham [...]

    ARC from Young Adult Books CentralWith the Odditorium on the run, Grubb is making peace with the fact that Grim is his father, but since Prince Nightshade is still on the loose, there s not a lot of time to dwell on things Things get even worse when the banshee Lorcan catches up with the group over Ireland, and wants to capture Cleona, who is powering the ship Nigel and Grim are still interested in solving Abel Worthy s murder, as well, but have lots to do, like traveling to a hell mouth to capt [...]

    On the fenceI came into this book half blind, having not read the first book in the series I think it would be really helpful to have that story under my belt, even though a summary to catch readers up is included in the book The beginning and end of the book were weak They just didn t really flow with the way the rest of the book was told Lots of oops, getting ahead of myself to try and hook the reader, which made me roll my eyes and didn t particularly pique my curiosity I found it odd that th [...]

    I received this e Arc from the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Gregory Funaro s mythological steampunk romp continues in Alistair Grim s Odd Aquaticum While the book contains a summary of the previous title, Alistair Grim s Odditorium, I would recommend reading the first book to fully enjoy the story and grasp all the references.Alistair Grim and the Odditorium crew are on the run following an epic battle with evil Prince Nightshade In order to stop the Prince once and for [...]

    An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Definitely far and away the earliest ARC I ve received to date rubs hands together gleefully As this book is less than a month away from publication at this point, an actual review is gonna have to wait for all eternity Suffice it to say that this was a fun installment in this series, nearly as much so as the first one Possibly , because Lorcan Not only does it have underwater adventures, and a Madam [...]

    4.5 stars, really.Was I super excited to get my hands on this sequel Oh yeah Was it worth it Definitely This story was just as action packed and exciting as the first with some extra intrigue thrown in A lot of the storyline motifs echo the first book such as love being the best magic, what family means, etc but there s a new Arthurian spin The hunt for Excalibur and the surrounding lore give the tale some nice depth The only small complaint I had was that the story almost had two climaxes, so t [...]

  21. Suzanne

    Middle grade, steampunk fantasy is a complicated mix for the second book in a series, if you haven t read the first The added difficulty in the book is the extra heavy dose of made up language to underscore the fantasy When I was a middle grade reader, these were story attributes that really prevented my enjoyment This story is so visual that I can understand why Disney is publishing the series and think it would make an amazing movie But, again, I didn t have that sensibility yet as a middle gr [...]

  22. Connie

    I d like to start by saying that I did not read the first book This book included enough details that I didn t feel as if I missed anything important however, I really feel as if I would have enjoyed reading that one too The author has filled with this book with interesting characters including some that I remember from books about King Arthur and Excalibur The plot Kept me turining pages and hoping that Grubb and his father complete their mission and save the day This is one of those books that [...]

  23. Laura

    The Odd Aquaticum is just another version of the Odditorium, and this story is simply too much like the first book to really excite me granted, I m not the target audience What would have moved this from average sequel to interesting entry in the series would have been about the Odditoria in the story than what there is, because there is some there as they re far intriguing characters than Alistair and Grubb When the focus is on Cleora or The Golden Fairy there s something a little special th [...]

  24. Jessica

    Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC I had a hard time writing this review bc I had a hard time finishing the book It wasn t awful I just couldn t get into it If you loved book one you will probably love book two It just wasn t for me There was too much going on, too many other stories in one I never go for that.

  25. Leah

    This was a cute story I liked this book better than the first one, and I m looking forward to the next book I liked the Arthurian elements in this book That was my favorite thing about this book There were a few surprises, but one of them I should have seen coming I hope the mystery of Grubb s mom is sorted out before the end of the series Also, the ending was so cute.

  26. Elizabeth Curington

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I found much to like in this quirky blend of fantasy and steampunk It felt like one of my kid s favorite animated movies For that reason, I m rating this book higher than my personal enjoyment I can see my 9 year old soon enjoying a book like this that almost defies categorization.

    For a Disney series, it s rather well done The characters are so off the wall and different that you never really know them I love that This story was much interesting from the first book Much things happened and you meet really fantastic people.
