Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Potts
Can Meilin and her friends locate the talismans and save their countryland? Blood Ties is the third book in the “Spirit of the Animals” series. Meilin, Conor, Tarik, Rollan, and Abeke each have a spirit animal that communicates with them and guides them. As the story develops, the chapters alternate between the travels of Meilin to the travels of her friends. Meilin and her friends search for her dad, General Teng. They have left their home because the enemy, the Conquerors, led by the Devourer, invaded it. Searching for talismans, which have special powers, this group hopes to use these talismans to defeat the Conquerors. The author skillfully weaves the story and builds suspension making the reader want to continue reading the story. Each character has unique and consistent personalities. This is a story readers will enjoy. Scholastic has created online supplemental materials, which include a teacher’s guide and aligns it with Common Core provisions. There is also an online game for this book, which allows the reader to create a character, to select a spirit animal and to participate in the effort to locate talismen and save the world. Reviewer: Jeanna Potts; Ages 8 to 13.
