Tanner and Gwen are on a quest to protect their homeland from being overtaken by Derthsin's evil army. In order to save Avantia, they must retrieve four parts of an ancient mask, which grants power over all of the Beasts of the land.
After acquiring the first piece of the Mask of Anoret and saving Gwen's twin brother, Geffen, from captivity, Gwen and her Beast, Gulkien, sleep soundly. But Geffen is gone in the morning and he has taken the portion of mask with him. Gwen refuses to believe he has abandoned them but Tanner suspects otherwise. Their search to bring Geffen back leads them to a destroyed village and a new warrior who isn't exactly what he seems to be.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for CHRONICLES OF AVANTIA #2: CHASING EVIL

"Readers will be clamoring for the next volumes in this gripping, easy-to-read, high-interest series, which is a terrific introduction to the genre." -Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The second in the Chronicles of Avantia, this tale continues the thrilling saga of Tanner and Gwen as they, along with their powerful beasts Firepos and Gulkien, try to save the Kingdom of Avantia from ruin. Tanner and Gwen have recovered one piece of the Mask of Death from the evil Derthsin, the first step in their plan to thwart the fiend in his desire to collect all four pieces. If Derthsin can assemble the mask, he will wield dark power over all of Avantia, including its beasts. They are shocked to discover that Gwen's twin brother Geffen has betrayed them, providing Derthsin with the first piece of the mask and the location of the second. Now, they must beat Derthsin to the second piece and rescue the treacherous but naive Geffen, who has become Derthsin's prisoner. Along the way, they join up with a third chosen rider, an obnoxious and difficult young man called Castor, and his catlike beast Nera. As fast-paced as its predecessor, this volume is more compelling because the characters and their relationships begin to get a bit more complicated. Firepos, Tanner's beast, again narrates part of the story in first person, creating a sense of immediacy as well as providing a glimpse into the perspective of the beasts, revealing them as full participants in the quest rather than mere transportation. Readers will be clamoring for the next volumes in this gripping, easy-to-read, high-interest series, which is a terrific introduction to the genre. (Fantasy. 8-12)
