Lisa Creswell has done an excellent job continuing the storyteller series in this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down.

Turning out to be quite a fairy tale. The Quest of Galamar picks up where Storyteller left off. Lily, Peter and Heather are now trapped in the True World, a place torn by the onslaught of Formorian invaders, spirit creatures from another realm that steal the bodies of creatures and people alike, using them until they decay beyond help. And they have Lily's grandmother.  As Lily learns more and more of Galamar and his quest to steal the powers of the four portal keepers, it becomes apparent that Lily is following in his footsteps, and not by chance. A prophecy tells of one who will complete his quest and turn back time. Unlike many sequels or middle books, this one doesn't lose steam. If anything the danger and the stakes are even higher.  Like the first in the series, The Quest of Galamar is well-written and fresh. There is some kissing, but nothing a middle schooler shouldn't read about, pretty tame. We learn a great deal more about the enemies and history of the fairy tale world the heroes are in, and through it all, there's never a dull moment. I enjoyed how Heather is developed in this story, though I wasn't sure what to think of Jude when he joined the team. My favorite parts of the book were when Lily was reading about Galamar. Strangely enough, these were also the source of my biggest beef with the story. Lily would be interupted by her companions or "real life" right in the middle of a tale and never seemed to get back to the same story. I guess it bugged me because I like to read stories from start to finish, while Lily seems to be a bit of a browser, reading this or that on a whim. But, the snippets we do get of the history of Galamar are quite good, and I was always happy to see another one start, even knowing I probably wouldn't get the whole story. Overall, this is another fine installment in the Storyteller series. Those who liked the style and direction the first book was taking will likely enjoy this one, too.  I recommend reading them in order and having all three books in your possession before you start, because you won't want to stop once you get going. I was lucky to have won a copy of all three books in the series in a contest.

The story of Lily Lightfoot continues in The Quest of Galamar, the second book in the Storyteller series. I previously reviewed The True World, the first book in the series. Lily Lightfoot has a special gift – she can make stories come true. This gift brought her into trouble more than once though, and because of it, she’s now in the True World, a fantastical, magical place filled with all kinds of enchanitng, but sometimes dangerous and threatening, creatures. She’s looking for her grandmother, Gwendolyn, who got kidnapped into this world. Her best friend Peter came along, and unfortunately, so did Heather, who isn’t exactly on Lily’s friend list. Heather used every opportunity she got at school to bully Lily, but maybe this trip will change that. Now they’re in the True World, the adventure can start for real. They team up with a elf turned manticore, Gabriel, who happens to be the brother of the evil overlord who wants to destroy them, Lord Kane. Gabriel takes the three kids on a journey to find the full moon amulet, a powerful amulet that’s hidden deep in the mountains and protected by a dragon. It’s one of the four amulets needed to recreate or destroy the True World and whatever happens, Lord Kane can’t get his hands on it, no matter what. I loved Lily and Peter in this adventure. They’ve grown a little, matured a little, since the first book, especially Lily. They have an unique, caring friendship that I found very charming. Even Heather has some endaring qualities here, although I continue to dislike her for how she treats Lily some of the time. The characters may be loveable, but it’s the fast-paced plot and thrilling adventure that urges the book forward. I loved the True World, which is described well and sufficiently detailed to picture it, and the many creatures inhabiting it. There was always something new right around the corner, and when you thought the story would go one way, it twisted into another direction. A great fantasy read. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll get started on the third book in this series.
