But as the ancient Berinfell Prophecies are revealed, the Seven soon discover their training might not be enough. To stop the Spider King they must also unravel the secrets of the Rainsong, travel to a creepy, trap-infested fortress to find the legendary keystone, and lead the Berinfell Elves in an attack on the

    A must read for any Fantasy fan!!!

    When I first read this book in fifth grade, I honestly could not put it down!! The story starts off right where we left the seven main characters in the first book; a definite plus! Batson and Hopper waste no time to get back into the action. If you have not read the first book please read no further...but I would definitely get the first book Curse of the Spider Kind and read my review on that.

    Then seven elven lords of Berinfell have made it back to the world of Allyra safely. They now are faced with a huge task; plan a rebellion against the tyrannical Spider King. First, they need training, and the only proper place to do it is in the abandoned Castle of Whitehall. To travel to Whitehall requires the elves to travel aboveground; such a small group could easily be overwhelmed by a Gwar patrol. Even worse, the young teens face one daunting question; are they on the wrong side?

    Venom and Song is one of the best books you will ever read! It contains a rare fusion of action, mystery, suspense, and Christian principles. It also relates very well to the struggles of the average Christian teen, or even to the working adult. I would recommend this book to anyone ten or older, for it has some violence and scenes that may scare younger readers. This book is definitely worth the read!!!

    Pros:
    Great story!
    Leaves off right where the first ended!
    Good mixture of Christian principles, action, suspense, and mystery!

    Cons:
    None!!

    5 Stars! Definitely a must read!!!

    Make sure to read it before the third comes out in the spring!!!

    Amazing--Highly Recommended for Anyone

    Time is running out... Trapped in the strange world of Allyra, the seven royal Elf lords struggle to control their new powers. With the Spider King chasing them and traitors in their midst, the young lords must unravel the mystery of the legendary Rainsong before the Elven race is destroyed forever. Standing in their way are peculiar and perilous creatures, a trap-filled fortress, and a dangerous secret. Will the Prophecies come true? Or will the Spider King win again? [from the back cover] Amazing. Inspirational. Heart-wrenching. Spiritual. All of these things describe Venom and Song. If anything could be called epic, it would be this. The battles are breathtaking and detailed, but not so the reader would be grossed out. The plot is always twisting and turning. Every time I think the authors would do one thing, they do the opposite. Full of dangers, deception, hope, action, and mystery, Venom and Song is epic indeed. The Christian elements in this book are taken to a much higher level then in the previous book. Some of the complaints against the previous book, Curse of the Spider King, was that there was little mention or insight into Ellos (the God-figure in the Berinfell Prophecies.) There is a lot more about Ellos in Venom and Song, however One of the possible cons was that there were seven protagonists, preventing character development. Let me tell you; this doesn't happen. The characters developed wonderfully, and I cared for each one of them--the ultimate character goal of each writer. The political intriugue in this book is pulled of masterfully as well. The only cons in this excellent book is that it ended far too quickly. :) This book, Venom and Song, is number 8 on my Top Ten Fiction list. Seriously. I have read many books, but this one is one of the best

    Book review

    I loved this book. It ends kind of depressingly but hang in there and be sure to read The Tide of Unmaking, the third and final book.!!

    This book has a lot of action/fighting.
    There is absolutely NO language.
    No sexual content except for a few crushes

    Overall, I highly recommend this book if you've read the first one. Definitely okay for 11 and up.

    A MUST read for ALL ages!!

    Can the Elves ever fight back or are they on razors edge of oblivion? The Spider King has grown more and more powerful with each passing day. However, with the return of the seven elf lords, the elves have new hope and they begin to stir. The seven elf lords have powers that could destroy the Spider King and his minions forever, but in knowing this, the Spider King has something that lies in wait for just such an occasion.

    Venom and Song

    This book is an amazing book filled with twists and turns you wouldn't expect. Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper are piecing together an unimaginably great series of books. Filled with wisps, singing, secrets, darkness, memories, joy, gnomes, walking trees, ancient training, and much more. You don't want to wait to read this awesome book.

    Venom and Song

    Personally, I liked this book better than the first, it seemed to bring more out in the characters I was able to learn a little more about each one. It also gave us a chance to see how the seven lords work together as a team, each using their powers to help each other. Story-wise, it opened up a lot more about the elves and what they do, we see that they're really fighting a losing battle, just barely hanging on. We also find out about a dark secret in the elves history. The young lords are sent to a special training ground but are interrupted by an attack sent by the Spider King. They set out on a journey to find an ancient elven relic, to use in their fight against the Spider King. When they return they take part in a final attempt to defeat the Spider King... Or die trying.

    Great job with book #2

    Continuing on from book one of the Berinfell Prophecies series, Venom and Song continues the adventures of our intrepid seven heroes. I know how many series have seven heroes? This was a wise decision on the authors part because it allows our heroes to be "normal" with superpowers instead of being superpowers that occasionally are normal. As the heroes return to the elven nation they find that not only do they have enemies from without but opposition from within the nation as well. Fleeing from those who would seek to use them rashly they find solitude and hard work far away. But as the enemies close in, they choose a dangerous mission to find something that no one has ever seen but that they have been called to find. Completing the ancient prophecies seemed so simple and straightforward. Now realizing that things are not as they appear "evil has no race" and they seek to understand the truth about ancient history and this critical question: who and what they're willing to fight for. This is a fun read and the truths interlaced into the book make it great for bringing the truths to some of the questions that we humans still struggle with. Enjoy

    Venom and Song, their best so far...

    Christopher Hopper and Wayne Batson outdid themselves with their second installment in the Prophecies of Berinfell series. The young seven elven lords find themselves in a mysterious world oppressed by the Spider King. Guardmaster Grimwarden must train them in the use of their powers, but will they be able to master them and find the Rainsong before the Spider King wipes the elven race out of existence?
    I can't recommend this book enough! :D

    Check out this series

    Review by Jill Williamson

    Just having arrived through the portal that transported them from Earth to Allyra, the seven elf lords must undergo training on how to fight and use their new powers before they will be ready to face the Spider King and his army. They also must learn how to use the Rainsong in order to save the Elven race.

    Book two picks up where book one left off. The young Elven lords have arrived in Allyra and are being chased by the bad guys. There is a lot of action in this book to keep you turning the pages. The characters grow a lot as they spend more time together and learn to use their powers. I enjoyed Grimwarden and his tough training methods and how the teens interacted with each other.

    Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper really know how to entertain. If you love teen fantasy novels, be sure to check out this series. It's a lot of fun.

    A Sequel to Curse of the Spider King

    The Seven Elf Lords are now in Allyra, where they are to be trained to control and use their powers, as well as to work together. But when they go to find the Keystone, the fortress where they had been training is attacked. They press on, thinking that Grimwarden, Goldarrow, and the others are dead. Will teamwork and their powers be enough to stop the Spiderking? Will they be enough to go into battle against him? Only time will tell as they travel through perils most would not risk. But their whole kingdom is at stake, so the still-young Seven Elf Lords must do what they can to save it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is willing. Endurance and victory!

    Good book, but with some disappointment

    I recently finished Venom and Song, and while there were some things that I liked, I didn't think the book was very original or unique in the long term.  Here we have another story with elves that have an ancient, flowery language (this one sounded like a prettier version of Latin), a bad-guy fortress located by a volcano that's spewing lava and molten rock, and a lot of the other familiar, fantasy cliches.  

    But, there were a few things I thought were original and really popped out to me.  However, I can't say any of them in detail, or it'll give away parts of the plot.  (Smiles.)  I can say this much, though: One thing had to do with an old secret that the young elves discover, with potentially dark implications that could alter everything as they know it.  It was a very grabbing part of the story, and I'm not overstating that.  This secret also leads to an interesting glimpse of how God reveals Himself to the different races of Allyra (the fantasy world of the book).

    Another part of the book I liked was when the elves discovered the Rainsong, but you'd have to read it to know what that part was about.  And finally, the third part that I enjoyed... hmm... how do I say this without giving anything away?  Well, let's just say it had to do with the leading antagonist of the story, and someone very... close... to him, and an intriguing transformation (I'll just call it that) that they both went through. 

    All in all: Lovers of fantasy will enjoy this book for sure, but if you're a little tired of fantasy cliches, parts of it may feel tedious to you.  If you've already read Book 1, Curse of the Spider King, and enjoyed it, then you won't want to miss the sequel, because it has even more exciting adventures and plot twists than the first one.

    Great book!

    Venom and Song is the second book in a series by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper. I didn't read the first book of the series but I will be sure to pick up a copy! I loved this book! It was a little hard to follow in the beginning since I had missed the first book but it quickly gets you caught up on what is going on. This fantasy for young adults was fantastic!

    A group of seven kids are brought together to fight the Spider King in a strange world. Their lives have forever been changed with the knowledge that the powers they have secretly had their whole lives are because they are elves left on earth with parents that are not their own for their safety. The time has come for the Elf Lords to return home and save their people from evil and darkness.

    The book was very well written. I had a hard time putting it down! Each page is filled with descriptive, adventure, romance and intrigue! Mysteries are unraveling as you go. The characters have real personalities as well as different powers making you want to know each of them. The villains are gruesome. You can't help but want them to loose the war!

    I would recommend this book for anyone that likes a good fantasy! Young adult or not! I normally am not a huge fan of Fantasies but I decided to give Venom and Song a chance. I am so glad I did!

    I received this book as part of the Thomas Nelson BookSneeze in return for my honest opinion. http://booksneeze.com/blogger
