Overview

    In Song of the Ovulum, a fiery battle between dragons and the military helped Matt and Lauren set their father, Billy Bannister, free from a demonic captor. The demon, however, escaped and kidnapped their mother, Bonnie. During the battle, a portal vortex flung Matt into oblivion, and no one knew where he went.
    Now, in From the Mouth of Elijah, Lauren and Billy set out on a journey to find Bonnie, hoping Lauren’s gifted hearing can track down Bonnie’s never-ending song. At the same time, Walter and Ashley search for clues to cure a mysterious disease that threatens to kill the original anthrozils, including Jared, who was once the great Clefspeare.

    Both journeys are fraught with peril as Lauren and Matt are thrust into Second Eden, where a volcano, Mount Elijah, has erupted and devastated the land, killing many of the residents. Matt uses his gifts of healing to save some of the victims, and when he finds Bonnie, he engages in another life-or-death battle with Tamiel’s forces in an attempt to free her.

    In the meantime, Lauren learns that she is the only person who believes the cure to be possible, so she begins a search for it. Along the way, she gains an unusual companion who prepares her for a heart-wrenching decision. Her choice is simple: Sacrifice her own life or let the anthrozils die.

    Bit complex, but a good story though.

    Once again, an unforgettable masterpiece from Davis

    Wow - Bryan Davis did it again! In this second book of his new series, Children of the Bard, a follow-on to his popular Oracles of Fire and Dragons in our Midst series, he continues the story of Lauren and Matt - Bonnie and Billy's twin kids - and Jordan and Selah - gifted children from pre-flood tines. The cast includes familiar friends - Asleigh, Walter, abd Elam, to name a few - as well as some new faces. The same is true for the settings, a rich variety that is a welcome change from the first book's sometimes monotonous place. This could very well be one of my top two favorite Davis books, which is saying a lot. I was highlighting all over the place, from Bonnie's strenuous mission, wisdom, and perseverance to Lauren's lessons in sacrifice and faith. All the characters are depicted masterfully, both the good and bad. Davis is a master of relatable, admirable protagonists and terrifying, complex villains. There is action, humor, suspense, word play, cross-dimensional travel, rescues, fights, and unforgettable decisions, all colored with Davis' stellar description and storytelling. Am I going a bit overboard in my praise? I think not. Rare is there a book in the rising genre of fantasy of this caliber. No matter your age or genre taste, this is a must-read (although be sure to read the first book, Song of the Ovulum, first)!

    This book was inspiring and it left me with a good feeling insid

    This book was inspiring and it left me with a good feeling inside. It's a wonderful story about sacrifice, friendship and family. This book definitely defines good from evil in a good way and readers won't confuse the good from the bad. This book gives great Christian morals and encourages faith in God. All in all this was a good book. I loved it and am eagerly awaiting the next addition!

    Awesome

    I am a HUGE fan of Mr. Davis's books, and this is an amazing continuation of the story. Read the previous books first though.
