Overview

In the sequel to ISLAND OF FOG, the young shapeshifters have made it safely into Miss Simone's world. Some of them are looking forward to meeting their alternate kinds. Others dread the prospect.

Dewey, for instance, quickly feels the pressure of being a centaur. Miss Simone and the villagers make use of special energy rocks to power homes and advance technology. But the superstitious centaurs are convinced that the mining of these rocks incurs the wrath of Mother Nature, and demand a return to an older, simpler lifestyle. Meanwhile, the village in the north is under constant attack from harpies and dragons, and the villagers desperately need help.

Hal and his friends join forces to deal with these serious issues. Together, with their individual talents, they can conquer any problem... or so they've been told.

They end up in the heart of dragon country, down in the Labyrinth of Fire beneath an oozing volcano. Their quest forces them to question the extent of their shapeshifting abilities, and this leads to a shocking discovery that is likely to start a war.

Editorial Reviews

Piers Anthony
The protagonist Hal can turn into a fire-breathing dragon, but he can't fly, which puts him at a severe disadvantage. Because real dragons can fly and have taken to eating people, and it is Hal's job to talk them out of it. Realistic within its framework and hard-hitting physically and emotionally. I recommend this novel for adults as well as children; it's not really juvenile.
Brian Beck
I finished Labyrinth of Fire over a few days. Wow, what a great read. I am the last person to get into kids' books, don't really read fiction and I abhor fantasy novels. But there is something very attractive about this series of books. The writing style is lucid and clear, the language is clean, easy to follow and the author takes time to explain the story as things progress - which they do at a rapid rate. The plot twists and turns. Highly recommended for overgrown kids.
Michelle Magee
Keith Robinson has a wonderful easy writing style that never slows you up. I was shocked how quickly I read the first book and am equally so with this one. Labyrinth of Fire is well written, exciting and absorbing. I am thoroughly confused as to who the kids can trust and am very anxious to read the third installment. It is great entertainment for both children and adults.
