Children's Literature
In the shrouded valley, the people of Longlight evaded destruction. For seventy-five years they quietly thrived, isolated from the world. Nurturing a small flame of hope, it took less than one hour for them to be annihilated in book one, The Dirt Eater. In this second installment of the "Longlight Legacy Trilogy," a year has passed since Roan, Alandra and the children have escaped the Brothers, when a coma-like sleep overtakes the children. Roan, possessing special powers, seeks to discover the whereabouts of the children's imprisoned souls. A mysterious boy comes to Roan in a vision, and Roan along with his friend Lumpy set out to meet an unknown fate. It is on this journey when Roan discovers his lost sister, Stowe, in possession of great powers and a favorite of Darius, the archbishop behind the annihilation. The story seamlessly blends fantasy with science fiction creating a believable imaginary world. The action is compelling, the plot intricate and well crafted, with a storyline continuing from book one. The story goes through numerous conflicts and wends through several sub-plots but beware—the resolution will not take place till book three. That will be something you will not want to miss. 2004, Annick Press, Ages 12 up.
