Disguised, she must make her way through medieval Spain and ancient Greek Portugal, having to contend with musket-wielding Furies, cast-iron submarines, Muslim assassins, vicious windmills, mysterious sorcerers, the dreaded Dreamworms, and 10,000 zombie women led by Dionysus himself. Not to mention Jasper's twisted sense of humor. Oh, and the usual poop monsters, of course. By journey's end Verity will learn the stunning truth about her missing father and her own amazing lineage. Full of allusions to HUCK FINN, THE ODYSSEY, KING LEAR, and many other literary classics, JASPER'S FOUL TONGUE is suitable for ages 10 to adult.

In Jasper's Foul Tongue, Volume 2 of the Legacy Stone series, twelve-year old tomboy Verity finds herself with precious little time left to rescue her friend Eddie from the evil Merchantry. Joined by her wisecracking, shape-shifting sword Jasper, Verity makes her way through medieval Europe - disguised for her own safety - and eventually contends with the likes of everything from Muslim assassins to the dreaded zombie army of the Greek god Dionysus. Over the course of her daunting adventure, though, she will uncover a host of shocking truths - about her father, her lineage, and so much more... The latest offering from author Terry Kroenung, Jasper's Foul Tongue picks up right where its predecessor, Brimstone And Lily, left off - without a hint of drop-off in either action or creativity. Featuring a unique cast of supporting characters, including everything from gun-toting Furies to mystical sorcerers to formidable Dreamworms, Kroenung's fertile imagination is on full display once again in this engaging follow up tale of intrigue and adventure. As Verity wends her through her considerably eye-opening journey, she is sure to elicit cheers from the reader every step of the way, who will no doubt find him/herself fully engrossed in the ramifications of her ultimate fate. Another standout offering from a bona fide literary talent. Chelsea Perry Apex Reviews
The characters were realistic, the humor was good. The overall story was incredible. It is a must-read. The author was my high school English teacher.
