Overview

After returning from his first trip to Solandria, Hunter Brown finds himself alone with memories of his adventures and many unanswered questions. He returns to school with the sneaking suspicion he is being watched, but his tendency to think he is being trailed by the Shadow lands him in a heap of trouble. Soon, Hunter takes a wild ride to Solandria with two new friends, Trista and Rob, and a furry creature, Boojum. The land has greatly changed. The Codebearers have been scattered and the Resistance is weak. With more questions than answers, Hunter, Trista and Rob begin their quest, led by a mysterious flame. Their goal is to find the Seven mentioned in the Author's Writ and to save Hope. But they face a brutal adversary, Xaul, who threatens to steal the flame and destroy all that remains of the Resistance. Has Aviad abandoned them all to the Shadow? Will Hunter and his friends find the courage to complete their quest... or will they be too late?

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Laura Panter
In this second book of the Codebearers series, Hunter has returned to everyday life obsessed with his adventures in the parallel realm of Solandria. Unfortunately for Hunter, he is the only one of his friends to remember training as a Codebearer and following the Author's Writ. When Hunter believes that a stalker of the Shadow is following him, he lands in the principal's office attempting to explain the impossible. That evening, Hunter heads for the local fair where he and two classmates embark on a terrifying ride through a portal back to Solandria. Within hours, Hunter finds himself on a new mission to protect a mysterious flame, locate seven marked Codebearers, and save the now devastated world of Solandria from an ancient evil. As Hunter helps rally the Resistance, he realizes that, whether he fails or succeeds, his path is fated by the writings of the Author. The Miller brothers begin the sequel to Hunter Brown and the Secret of the Shadow (Warner Press, 2008/VOYA October 2008) with a solid story line only to add countless obstacles and characters to the mix. It is confusing to keep up with all the new evil forces that Hunter and his allies must defeat, from the Shadow and the ancient Xin warriors to the Emissary and the Scourge. The reasons for introducing seven new marked Codebearers is also never fully realized. At the end of the book, yet another set of enemies appears, but readers might wonder how many other challenges will be brought in without full explanations. Reviewer: Laura Panter

    The Miller Brothers hit a bullseye with this one!

    This is the sequel to Hunter Brown and the Secret of the Shadow, and I can guarantee that it is just as good if not better than the first. It has everything a good book can contain, action, adventure, puzzles, mystery suspense, and more! you can also go to Codebearers.com and read the first three chapters online! you can also play the game for a chance to win $400 at best buy, and mingle with other readers. I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone of all ages. It is probably THE best book of our day. I can guarantee that if you like the Lord of the Rings or Narnia, tthat you will fall in love with this one!

    Really fun books for middle grade readers

    After Hunter’s last trip to Solandria, he’s pretty much deserted by his best friend, who doesn’t remember the trip. But Hunter can’t forget it. He meets up with two new friends who recognize the Author’s mark, and together they are transported to Solandria to embark on a very dangerous quest. Hunter must carry the Flame to Torpor in an attempt to find the other marked people. They meet plenty of people along the way. How will they know who to trust?

    These are really fun books for middle grade readers. They’re filled with adventure and allegory and all kinds of cool things. Plus they have neat pictures at the beginning of each chapter for those readers who still like a visual every now and then. I really enjoy the way the Miller brothers tell a story. And I love the way the weapons in Solandria are powered by faith. Pretty cool stuff. If you haven’t heard of these books, I recommend them for readers aged ten and up.

    Great Adventure

    Originally posted at: www.aurorareviews.blogspot.com ***** It's great fun again as we join Hunter Brown in a wonderful new adventure! Here, back in the "real" world of Earth, Hunter finds himself deserted by his friend, Stretch, who will not believe that the world of Solandria is real, or any of the adventures Hunter says he had. Even though Stretch takes all of Hunter's friends with him when he leaves, Hunter finds new ones in Rob, who is another teenaged Codebearer, and Trista.

    Before we know it, Hunter is swept off into another adventure in Solandria. He has a new adversary, Xaul, a Xin warrior with a Vertis sword that has been twisted into the way of evil. Xaul desires The Flame, a mysterious fire that gives mythological powers.

    Hunter sets off on a perilous journety to find the flame before Xaul does. Hunter vows to protect the flame with his life, if need be, for if he does not Xaul will take it. And then, it will be used to kill the Codebearers and destroy the Writ.

    This was another nail-biting adventure for Hunter, and I didn't want to put this book down, even when I grew sleepy or had other things that needed doing. The Miller brothers are fabulous authors who color their text with imagination and detail. The characters, as before, were three-dimensional and so realistic. The always jolly Stoney was my favorite character. I liked him because he always tried to do the right thing, even when it was difficult or painful. Even more wonderful was the fact that he was so happy and his joy made other people (including me!) feel better.

    The book was also populated with terrifying creatures. The Fangworm was particularly fearsome, at least for me. With its four fangs as long as spears, spikes up its back and skin covered with tough scales, he was a difficult monster to defeat. The Scourge -- a kind of mist haze that could take any shape it desired -- was a terrifying, albeit clever, construct as well.

    Truthfully this book had me hanging off the edge of my seat with every page I turned. Well-paced with an excellent plot, it's perfect for fantasy and action/adventure readers. I give it four books, and can't wait for the next installment in this series.
