Overview

As the second book in the “Spirit Animals: Fall of the Beast” series opens, the four young heroes and their spirit animals (introduced in the first book of the series, Immortal Guardians) are separated. Conor and Meilin are trapped underground, hoping to get to the Wyrm—the creature responsible for the infection plaguing Conor—before it destroys the Evertree, lifeblood of Erdas. Joined by two other children and their animals, they must battle the strange, dark world of the caverns below the Evertree. Meanwhile, Abeke and Rollan embark on a journey to Stetriol in hopes of convincing another child bonded to one of the Great Beasts to join the Greencloaks. New readers who are unfamiliar with the series will have trouble keeping up with the rules of the world and the huge cast of characters—there are over fifteen named characters just within the first twenty-five pages. Even fans of the series may be frustrated in the plot’s lack of forward momentum, and in fact, the heroes’ opponents seem to gain more ground than the heroes. There’s no shortage of action, however (which can be continued off-page with an Internet game tie-in), and with a heart-stopping cliffhanger ending, readers will be anxious to get their hands on the third book in this series. Reviewer: Heather Christensen; Ages 8 to 12.
