Comments Tales of the Great Beasts

  • Paul Nash

    4 StarsThis is a prequel to the first Spirit Animals series. You learn how four of the Great Beasts (Essix, Uraza, Briggan and Jhi) fell in battle trying to protect Erdas. If you read and enjoyed the series, this is a must read, as it fills in some missing gaps and back stories of 4 (out of 15) of the Great Beasts, told through 5 short stories.4-stars

    Story:Tales of the Great Beasts gives us stories revolving around the Great Beasts that if you've been reading the series are referred to as the Four Fallen: Jhi the Panda, Briggan the Wolf, Essix the Falcon, and Uraza the Leopard. The book spans the first war against the Devourer/the Reptile King and the forces of the Conquerors, from how it started all the way to the end. We see ordinary kids rise up to the challenge of helping their families, friends, and their homes against the darkness and [...]

    This was a special edition add-on to the main series. It told the individual story of the 5 great beasts - Kovo, Jhi, Uraza, Briggan, and Essix. It was interesting to see a different perspective on these characters, and it fleshed out a little more of their story and role in the main series.Kovo's story helped connect the first use of the Bile to the main story - it showed how King Fel became the Devourer (Shane) and his bond with his giant crocodile.Jhi's story showed her compassion and healing [...]

    I think this series is amazing, but this was my least favorite book in the series. I believe this book was mainly used to set up the story for future books so you could just know a little about Great Beasts. This book also didn't have much action in it either. It only talks about how the Great Beasts were assisted by humans long ago, but many of the Great Beasts hated humans and thought of themselves as superior. The Great Beasts have a meeting near the end of the book, talking about the war the [...]

    So far, in Spirit Animals: Tales of the Great Beasts, a lot has happened. Feliandor (boy king on Stetriol) has to survive on his own, in a haunted castle. Everyone else has left him to survive in there, because they all knew what is going to happen to Feliandor. I think, that Feliandor is going to wake up in an abandoned room and is going to be tied up by the spirits. I really want to know if he is going to make it out alive and if he will find Stetriol again, to live happily ever after.

    There were five different stories about the great beasts in this book. I was a little bored with a couple of the stories, but found the others to be interesting. My favorite was the last story, which featured all of the great beasts and their distinct personalities. I also found the first story especially interesting, which told about King Feliandor and his first meeting with Kovo, the great Ape.

  • Onsyam

    Nice overall storyi read this before i read the first book of the series, and this book does throws a lot of names that arent familiar. I advice u guys read the first book of the series first, eventhough this book says 0.5

  • Catherine

    3.5 Stars. Good prequel

  • HyunJune

    I only read this bc in 5th grade I found it in my mailbox and then I read it when I went home._.

  • Katniss

    Answers my questions about before the time of the original series. I really like Uraza and Briggan. All the characters make their personalities from the original series, but they can talk.

  • Kristin Jacobsen

    The book Spirit Animals was a good book. In my opinion, it wasn't one of the best books I have read but it was better then a lot of them. I didn't like how there were different sections of the book. That made it a little confusing for me. Also, each section was a little different so it took me a while to conprehend. I liked how the book was about animals fighting for their territory. The book Spirit Animals was a good bookThe book Spirit Animals is full of action. The first section was about a m [...]

    Prequel to the fantasy adventure “Spirit Animals” series which involves Four Great Beasts, know as the Four Fallen, and the kids to which they bond. Book begins with the Devourer, when he becomes the Reptile King, and his goal of conquering Erdas. The first chapters read like short stories as the reader is introduced to the Great Beasts and to the teen to which they bond: Meilin to Jhi the panda, Conor to Briggan the wolf, Rollan to Essix the falcon, and Abeke to Uraza the Leopard. The four [...]

  • Barbara

    This engaging title for fans of the Spirit Animals series follows four of the Great Beasts and describes how they came together with humans to face off against the mad Reptile King, Feliandor. This back story provides details that explain some of the events that happen later in the series while also evoking sympathy for some of the humans and animals alike. I loved having a chance to learn more about Briggan, Uraza, Jhi, and Essix and some of their temporary human companions. All five stories he [...]

  • K.

    "SPIRIT ANIMALS" IS NOT A CONCEPT FOR NON-NATIVE PEOPLE TO TAKE.The title and blurb alone are incredibly racist and appropriate Native cultures. It's never ok for spirit animals to be used in this way. They're sacred to many Native peoples. Something a lot of Native people won't even talk about among themselves/ourselves because it's so sacred and private. For this series to even mention spirit animals is offensive, let alone ENCOURAGE KIDS TO ROLE PLAY HAVING A SPIRIT ANIMAL. Don't pick up this [...]

  • Lori Field

    I thoroughly enjoy the Spirit Animals books even though I'm an adult. I can enjoy a fun adventure as well as the next kid. I'm glad Mull, and others, write the Tales of the Great Beasts. It helps us understand the four great spirit animals that have bonded with our heroes in the series. Each section tells about first, the rise of the Reptile King, and then the four great beasts & progresses along in the story of the rise of the Conquerer and the fall of the great beasts. Each subsequent sect [...]

  • Matthew Largo

    Tales of the Great Beasts was an ok book. I liked how there were five different stories of five of the Great Beasts Kovo the Gorilla, Jhi the Panda, Uraza the Leopard, Briggan the Wolf, and Essix the Falcon. I also like the connection between a human has with an animal and can summon the animal and its powers at any time. The stories tell of these Great Beasts giving up their most prized possession to help the greencoats defeat the enemy. There wasn't a lot of detail during the story and at the [...]

  • Catherine ~Whatever you are, be a good one~

    I immensely enjoyed this book! It tells the stories past, from the founding of the Greencloaks to the fall of the Four Fallen. It all ties together beautifully. More details on what it tells of: Kovo: The young King Feliandor, the Bile discovery, and Kovo corrupting Fel. Jhi: A pair of siblings with one sick's search for Jhi, finding her and such, and Jhi's talisman being stolen. Uraza: Uraza's original unwillingness to help, her first friend, events of capture and escape, and the founding of th [...]

    This is another first book of a series for young adults. It is a sci-fantasy novel about a society in which at the age of 11, kids drink a nectar to find out if they are paired with a spirit animal. This book follows 4 kids who have been paired with special spirit animals and then are gathered up by the Greencloaks to help fight the evil.I enjoyed this book much more than I expected and much more than similar sci-fantasy animal series that I read. I will recommend Liana read it and I might even [...]

  • Michelle Johnson

    This book was about and why the beast needed to come back and help out the kingdom stay together in harmony. and how they come about. each animal that is a great beast comes come to a boy or girl that they can bond together and their strength increase a lot.I really enjoy this book because i love animals and i could relate to them. i love how the animals gain a bond with the kids so much that they could feel and know one another feelings and what they would do next so they both can be prepared f [...]

  • Angie

    Tales of the Great Beasts explores the war of the Devourer and his Conquerors. It starts with the rise of the Devourer and how he became the Reptile King. We then get chapters on each of the Fallen of the Great Beasts: Jhi the Panda, Briggan the Wolf, Uraza the Leopard and Essix the Falcon. We learn how each of these joined the fight, how the Greencloaks first started and how the war ended with the four dying and the two evil Great Beasts being imprisoned. It is a wonderful back story for the Sp [...]

    3.5/ 4 StarsThis book was overall quite good but it was very short it felt light in hands when I held it.I wish the "Essix" part was a tad longer and had more description words because I was having trouble visualizing.The story was good but the Greencloak part confused me a bit. How did the other warriors know to were green cloaks?And the Great Beast didn't seem to like each other and it didn't talk about the Swan great beast as much as needed and how she gave Nectar. It really needed to talk ab [...]

  • Elise

    I was totally tricked into thinking this was the first book in this series. I don't know why book titles can't say exactly what number they are in the series like does. Good job, . Bad job, editors everywhere! Haha. Anyway, this book was perfectly fine for middle grade fantasy, but I'm sure it will make much much more sense if you read the first book in the series FIRST. This is like an extra collection of side stories that will confuse you if you know nothing about the world.

  • Trae Stratton

    A good entry point if you are thinking about reading this series. This is the first Spirit Animals book I have read so I'm not sure how it fits into the larger picture, but it will give you a good feel for its world dynamics/mythology and whether or not you want to invest in it. READER BEWARE: This collection of related short stories was written by contributors, not the original author. I'm sure the writing style is similar, but you never know. That being said, I found the world interesting enou [...]

  • thomas

    this book does a good job at giving the back story hinted at thorough the main series but as it was a collection of short stories the Pacing was a little slow in parts and rushed in others but still a valid entry into expanding the world the stories take place in one thing that I didn't like is there were no chapters only marks that indicate the plot going a different way which is sometimes a good place to stop but not always

  • Kelly Carey

    This book is a collection of short stories about some of the Great Beasts. I was a little disappointed that it did not cover all of the Great Beasts. Perhaps another Special Edition is in order.In any case, these stories provide an excellent background in regards to the Great Beasts and the battle that resulted in the death of 4 of the beasts. In connects well to the series, but does not move the action forward.

  • Tyler

    I am currently reading The Spirit Animals-Tale of the Great Beats and I think so far it is a great book. It has a lot of good detail and has different stories in it. I think this is a great book for readers who love adventure and want to read about it. Some of the tales include kingdoms. Others include beautiful savannahs protected by great beasts. I hope you enjoy the book.

  • Patrick

    I read this last year and forgot to rate it. You shouldn't read this until you're at least 3 or 4 books into the series, but then it's one of my two favorite books in the series. I liked the insight and history for the main series. The Great Beasts make much more sense after seeing them gather and debate.

  • Feared Phoenix

    The author is very good at making you feel what the main character feels. I enjoy that the Brandon Mull had the four chapters in the book one on each of the four main great beasts: Briggan, Uraza, Jhi, and Essix. You can understand why the great beasts saved the people from the conquers. Also why they were the only great beasts to fight and die.

  • Zoey K.

    I love the whole series and I think everyone should read it. It shows the true courage of heroes and why. It shows how someones death can be turned into a good thing. It shows that people shouldn't be on there own in life. I have read this book twice and learned new things both times. This book is as real s it gets

  • Rachel

    As my girls & I wait for the sixth Spirit Animal book (with a Nicola Barber reading, please!) we entertained ourselves over Christmas break with this prequel to the series. This series has become a fun family tradition for us. The girls read the books, but we all listen to them on car trips. All are entertained, young & older. While the writing is good, Nicola's voice is mesmerizing.
