A must read (or listen) for any Fantasy Fan!!
When I first read this book in fifth grade, I honestly could not put it down!! The story starts off right where we left the seven main characters in the first book; a definite plus! Batson and Hopper waste no time to get back into the action. If you have not read the first book please read no further...but I would definitely get the first book Curse of the Spider Kind and read my review on that.
Then seven elven lords of Berinfell have made it back to the world of Allyra safely. They now are faced with a huge task; plan a rebellion against the tyrannical Spider King. First, they need training, and the only proper place to do it is in the abandoned Castle of Whitehall. To travel to Whitehall requires the elves to travel aboveground; such a small group could easily be overwhelmed by a Gwar patrol. Even worse, the young teens face one daunting question; are they on the wrong side?
Venom and Song is one of the best books you will ever read! It contains a rare fusion of action, mystery, suspense, and Christian principles. It also relates very well to the struggles of the average Christian teen, or even to the working adult. I would recommend this book to anyone ten or older, for it has some violence and scenes that may scare younger readers. This book is definitely worth the read!!!
Leaves off right where the first ended!
Good mixture of Christian principles, action, suspense, and mystery!
5 Stars! Definitely a must read!!!
Make sure to read it before the third comes out in the spring!!! (Posted on 2/15/12)
