Review by Jill Williamson
Johnis knows better than to mess with the Books of History—even the roush tells him not to—but he wants to know where his mother is more than anything and the books are his only hope. When he discovers that she’s being held in Horde City, he tricks one of Thomas Hunter’s armies to help him. But it was a trap. Now he must choose between Silvie and his mother, or the Forest Dwellers. And as usual, Johnis will follow his heart.
This is book two of Ted Dekker’s Lost Books series, a young adult spin-off from his Circle series. I enjoyed it overall. It gives us plenty of action and intrigue, and reveals more details from Dekker’s mystery of how the Lost Books work. Johnis’ character annoyed me for the first part of the story, but I loved little Karas. Things were a bit predictable at times, yet the story worked out to an entertaining finish, complete with a cliffhanger for book three. If you loved the Circle series, these books will entertain.
