The Gauntlet

I am kind of bumming about this book because I loved the way it started - I was thinking it was so Jumanji(ish) and was really getting into it.  But then it fell apart for me.  The challenges didn't seem that challenging, I never really got a big sense of danger, the brother was found too easily and I just felt some descriptions weren't thorough enough.  I had trouble visualizing everything and in the end had trouble caring.  Then near the end the scene with the blood - ew and the actual ending just seemed like a comedy of errors and not realistic in any way.
