The epic tale of friendship, adventure and magic beings is back and bigger than ever. McLeod is bringing it back with more trolls and more action. A vengeful witch and a shape shifting creature could be the match for Peter and George but with a powerful army on their side can they survive?
You can’t afford to miss this book, aimed at ages 8+, the book is easy to read yet full of twists and turns older people will enjoy. The first book proved to a be a hit and this second instalment is sure to leave you wanting more. Whether you’re reading it alone or to someone else you’ll be gripped and won’t want to put it down.
I really love these books, they’re easy to read, exciting and action packed. McLeod doesn’t miss out the story or the character development though, there’s time for both in this book. Throughout the series you will see Peter and George grow into their roles and use teamwork to stick together. It’s a great book for children, outlining the need for friendship and teamwork in tough situations but doing it inside an epic fantasy adventure.
8/10 for the series so far!
