Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
After delivering the pearl, Finn and Aria thought life would return to normal.
But with the survival of the clans still in peril, they must continue their quest.
Can they find the next relic before the forces of evil?
Not everyone is who they appear to be
And time is running out …
This is an action packed fantasy adventure written for children but equally enjoyable for adults. It centres around the search for relics which are key to restoring balance and defeating evil in the world. After reading the first book in this series – and listening to the audiobook version of it – I couldn’t wait to read this second book in this series, and it was just as enthralling an adventure! As Finn, Aria and Pippin set out to find the next relic they’ll encounter some double dealing, learn that not everyone is just what they seem and find a new friend whilst still trying to evade Sir Waldred and his minions. It is another great adventure, with casualties along the way, dangerous journeys through unfriendly territories and even a demon!
This is a great read, with relatable characters, none of whom are perfect! Everyone makes mistakes but Pippin being into everything, accident prone and not recognising the usual constraints regarding property of others, is definitely more likely to inadvertently make mistakes than any of the others. How the others react to these mistakes, their interactions, insights and experiences all add together to make this a fascinating story and enjoyable read. I can’t wait to read the next books in this series!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.
