This was a great sequel to "Cry Of The Sea". Juniper has found herself entangled with yet another mythical creature/spirit. The woods come alive (literally) in this novel. This thousand year old tree has a mind of it's own and has decided it likes Juniper and plans to keep her. The premise for this story is interesting. There are thousands upon thousands of fables about trees coming alive or people's spirits getting trapped in a tree. It's a fascinating and terrifying idea. Really makes you see trees in a different light. Juniper, as always, is a bit of a brat. The story really gets going with her throwing a fit because Carter brought her to a protest on their first night back together. I think this part of her personality gives her a bit of depth. No teenager is immune to mood swings. No teenager sees the bigger picture every time. Sometimes, they're a bit selfish. That's real life. I like that Mrs. Driver wrote Juniper this way. Like I said, it really gives her some depth. I LOVE how this story ties in with "Cry Of The Sea". It takes the mermaid premise to a whole new plane. Including the Native American myth was perfect. It took the whole series to a whole new place. I am super excited to see where it goes. I look forward to continuing my journey with Juniper Sawfeather.

As with the first book in this series, the author includes a message regarding environmentalism, but it's intertwined with Juniper's story and is more about awareness. Something I like about these books is that even though Juniper has these extraordinary things going on in her life (mermaids, talking trees), she also experiences average teenage problems - boyfriend dilemmas, overly dramatic friends, school complications, and clashes with her parents. I admire Juniper's courage and determination - she knows who she is and where she wants to go. It's clear the author did her research regarding Native American legends and a real-life person who actually lived in a tree for a period of time - which fascinated me. Without giving anything away, I was surprised something that happened between Juniper, her father, and uncle near the end of the story was never mentioned among the three of them. Since this aspect had been a source of tension between the brothers during the story, I think it would have been more satisfying for the reader if it had been addressed. I'm enjoying Juniper's exciting, magical journey and there's a hint near the end about what may be in store for her next - I look forward to the next addition to this series.
