    Having by the skin of their teeth survived a cross continental walk to freedom from the mind control of the Tripods Will and his friends now volunteer to risk their lives by joining those who enter the alien city as slaves of the Masters First they must make another arduous journey and then triumph at an athletic competition designed to select the best and strongest specimens to serve the invaders But getting into the city is the least horrible of the dangers that wait for the boys Tense and creepy

    This was always my favorite from this trilogy Maybe it's because the terror is so immediate and the danger is distilled to its essence The aliens are terrifying and real their city has a personality of its own and Will remains a fascinating and flawed hero

    I have re read these books several times over the years and they have stood up uite well They're uite suspenseful and interesting without being over the top preachy which a book like this easily could be What stood out to me this time was their amazing economy They're only around 100 pages each yet they don't feel like slight books in any way

    The second book of the Tripods Trilogy The City of Gold and Lead continues the science fiction adventure that began with The White Mountains The world has been taken over by aliens who rule in large three legged machines Humans are controlled by metal caps which are melded to their skulls at the age of 14 Will the main character is a young man who is part of a small group of free men who have escaped the capping process and live secretly in the mountains In The City of Gold and Lead Will and another boy are sent to be slaves in the city of the alien “Masters” as they call themselves to gather information and report back The dangerous journey provides a frightening look at the dark reality that the Masters have created for the humansMuch like The White Mountains I found this book to be an exciting and engaging read The plot is adventurous and fast paced but the themes of humanity and freedom are still just as evident making this book stand as something that is filled with thrilling adventure and a thought provoking depth The biggest difference in The City of Gold and Lead is that it is much rooted in the science fiction genre than The White Mountains was We learn much about the alien Masters their city and their technologies in this book although Christopher manages to inject enough plot movement to make sure that it never becomes too slowRecommended for children and tween readers who enjoyed The White Mountains Those who enjoy adventurous page turners especially boys will enjoy these timeless thrillers I also think that although this is a children’s book the combination of action and depth makes this an enjoyable read for teens and adults who are open to reading younger people’s literature

    This some badass excellen' sci fi hee ya Book Two of the trilogy about a century from now when mankind is slave to the Tripods giant war machines that control men through Caps which are ritualistically affixed to their skulls at adolescence The three teenagers from the first book who make it to the White Mountains where a small band of free people are trying to free the earth are at their zany hijinks again This time they enter a pseudo Olympics thing fake Capped and get inside one of the cities of the Tripods where they discover the horrible shit that is actually happening the real rulers are these fucking hideous and weird aliens called The Masters Humans are their slaves in the city whose artificial gravity and sweltering heat hence the title kill you after about a year of glorious servitude to your Master The narrator Will figures out all kinds of shit and offers that neat fish in the frying pan wide eyed view of this most alien badassitude

    This is the second installment in the Tripods trilogy It is my favorite book of the trilogy and is still as much fun 20 years from when I first read itWill Beanpole and Henry are training for the games in hopes that one of them will make it into a city of the Tripods and be able to escape to provide vital intelligence to the human resistanceThe description of what happens in the Tripods city is amazing and interesting I remember reading this when I was younger and finding it absolutely fascinating The end of the book leaves you hanging and wondering what will happen It is a fast paced book with amazing detail as to the Tripod raceThis is a wonderful creative series; that still inspires curiosity of the unknown It is a trilogy that seems to withstand time I can't wait to read the last book in the series

    This was my favorite book in the series It gives us our first glimpse into the lives of the Masters and what an unusual glimpse it is The world building for the city is one of the most interesting takes on an alien society I've seen yet even after having seen many since The visuals conjured in my mind by the author's word are something I can still recall 20 years after reading it I think this book is also interesting in that it reveals that the evil alien overlords aren't all completely evil The one the main character is stuck with is actually halfway decent As far as alien slave masters go One of my favorite early sci fi reads


  8. says:

    My favourite of the series For me it seemed the author was drawing a correlation between the aliens called the Master's and human beings Very good character developement for a kids book I liked that the protagonist was flawed and pointedly so I thought that was unusual for a kids book OR for that matter an adult book


  9. says:

    I read this book when I was a kid back in the 70s not realizing that it was book 2 of a trilogy Now I've decided to go back and read them in order All I could remember from my first reading was giant triangular aliens I think I made that part up a green domed city and a boy escaping underwater This held up pretty well to a re read Yes it's a bit dated but I think it can be viewed as a under appreciated classic nowTo my surprise in the author's preface to my edition he says that when he first wrote White Mountains he had not intended it to be a series That's probably why there's a slightly different feel in that first book which is of a boy's adventure tale and this book which is a straight up covert ops resisting the alien invaders story always a favorite trope of mine
