Night Runner series by Max Turner

07/05/2013

  Hi!! I just finished reading the second book in the Night Runner series by Max Turner, who is an Ottawa author, so I thought it’d be fun to do a blog on his books. The books are called The Night Runner and The End of Days.

End of Days     Night Runner

 

  The story is about a completely ordinary boy named Zack Thomson, who lives in a mental institution called the Nicholls Ward. Since Zack is an orphan he grows up in the Nicholls Ward, surrounded by people who are utterly insane. Zack’s only friends are his caretaker/nurse named Ophelia and a boy named Charlie. Zack only lives at the Nicholls Ward because after both of his parents died, he developed severe mysterious allergies, so the Nicholls Ward is his home.


      My favourite character is Zack not just because he’s the main character but I like his personality and how his thoughts are pretty hilarious. I also like him because he has very creative escape plans.  I also like Charlie because he’s always a lot of fun and he’s very carefree. My least favourite character is Ophelia; I don’t like her because I find she’s too overprotective and I find she just gets in the way sometimes.


    One of the things I really like about this book is that there are a bunch of characters that come in throughout the book and you don’t know if they’re a bad guy or not. It really keeps you on your toes and makes you keep reading.  I think this series is definitely one you should check out, it’s an interesting story that you’ll love. I hope you have a great week!
Happy Reading!
