Tom and his friends restored the barrier – but that was a temporary fix. Now they must find a permanent solution, the artifact, to protect Elfhaven for a thousand years and bring Tom and his mom safely back home to Earth.
To find the artifact they are forced to embark on a dangerous quest through the deadly Demon Forest, cross the raging Icebain River, and solve the riddle of the Cave of Nightmares.
On their desperate journey they must climb an active volcano past scalding geysers and deadly giant ice-worms.
Standing in their way are a bungling troll and ogre, a shape-shifting demon, and a demented fairy queen. With gremlins and wizards in hot pursuit only Tom’s scientific knowledge and the use of light and dark magic can save them.

Hello everyone just so u all know i met this author and he is a reaylly nice guy
Thomas Holland in the Realm of Ogres is fun. It's definitely a great book for any fantasy-adventure lover. Honestly, I would've really been pumped to see this in middle school, like I love it now but middle school Emily would be so excited to read this. So I think that this book is perfect for middle school readers. At the beginning of the book, I felt a little lost. It all happened really fast, but I was able to piece it all together a couple chapters in. The fantasy world is pretty rad and I loved how true it was to the fantasy aspect of the book. Tom's character is fun and I think younger people would definitely relate to him on some levels. Overall I give Thomas Holland in the Realm of Ogres four stars!
Although the barrier has been temporarily restored, Juanita, the King, and his men still have to make it back to the crash site and obtain an artifact so they can restore the barrier for thousand’s years. They decide to do a sneak journey through ogre country. Unfortunately the evil wizard Naagesh is not dead and has plans to alert the ogres to the king in their territory. Tom and his friends stumble upon the plan and try to tell the king but he has all ready left. They plan to cut through the Demon Forest, a shorter route, to get to the ambush site first. They are going to have their hands trying to survive the forest, the ambush and getting the artifact back to the castle. I admit that I have not read the first book in this series but that didn’t really give me any problems. I easily understood what was happening. The story has a great plot, lots of action and adventure, and math thrown into the mix. This book is a great story for any age. Now I’m off to purchase Thomas Holland and the Prophecy of Elfhaven to see what I have missed. I received Thomas Holland from Sage’s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.
'Thomas Holland in the Realm of the Ogre's by K. M. Doherty continues the story and provided readers of any age with adventure, friendship, and magic. I love the technology and how well K. M. Doherty is able to weave it into the magic making it so believable! He carries on with such well developed characters I would recognize them on sight if they happen to pop into my reality! This book as well as his first "Thomas Holland and the Prophecy of Elfhaven' should be on every parents' must read list next to the Harry Potter series.
