After Hunter's last trip to Solandria, he's pretty much deserted by his best friend, who doesn't remember the trip. But Hunter can't forget it. He meets up with two new friends who recognize the Author's mark, and together they are transported to Solandria to embark on a very dangerous quest. Hunter must carry the Flame to Torpor in an attempt to find the other marked people. They meet plenty of people along the way. How will they know who to trust?
These are really fun books for middle grade readers. They're filled with adventure and allegory and all kinds of cool things. Plus they have neat pictures at the beginning of each chapter for those readers who still like a visual every now and then. I really enjoy the way the Miller brothers tell a story. And I love the way the weapons in Solandria are powered by faith. Pretty cool stuff. If you haven't heard of these books, I recommend them for readers aged ten and up.
After buying, reading, and overall LOVING the first book, I bought the second book and received a surprise; the second book is even more Awesome then the first! (And yes, I did capitalize the A in awesome) I must say, the Miller Brothers are geniuses! With the plots, characters, and allegories to real life, this book is definitely a must have!
