The second book of the wicked series, Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, Spirit Walker unlocks a life changing secret. It has you on the edge of your seat, staring at the book, rushing to read but you are rushing so the words are a big jumble. The scene moves away from the beloved Forest, to the rough-and-tumble Sea Islands. Fantasy breaks its chain and things here are like nothing you could ever imagine. I give a pat-on-the-back to Michelle for this great book. 5 Stars.
Soul Eater brings you deep into the story – fantasy has gone wild! A forest of stone, demons, spirits, and cold fire. It’s like you are really there, forced to break the promise to the World-Spirit and climbing through tunnels smaller than you are, facing freezing temperatures. I love this book! Its chock-full of action: one baddie is not how it seems, a beloved character gets part of him cut off, and there is heart-break and joy. 5 stars.
Outcast is a brilliant book. It is interesting and sets your nerves on edge. If you like adventure, spine-tingling thrills and something awesome right around the corner, then this book is for you. But you might want to start with the first book in the series, Wolf Brother. 5 stars http://www.wcl.govt.nz/blogs/kids/index.php/2011/05/03/kids-review-by-emily-6/
