This book was good. I really enjoyed the characters and the two authors, Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper, know how to put a story together. Each character had their own battle they had to face which brought great examples of forgiveness, sacrifice, trust, and acceptance of one's self. An example of how anger and hate is a destroyer was also in the book. The characters learn about how to trust God even in the most desperate circumstance and that no matter what, no matter what anyone has ever called or treated you as, he loves you (something all of us should remember).The book is meant for those 12 and up and is an excellent book for anyone looking for a decent story for a young adult.
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!!!
Leaves off right where the first ended!
Good mixture of Christian principles, action, suspense, and mystery!
5 Stars! Definitely a must read!!!
Make sure to read it before the third comes out in the spring!!!
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 is anther EPIC book by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper. This is an action packed adventure with highs and lows, but never disappointing!!
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.
