Hi everyone. Time for another review.
Cole, Mira, Twitch, and Jace travel to the kingdom of Elloweer to find Mira's sister Honor, whose star has appeared in the knight sky. Along the way they encounter enforcers of the High King, determined to capture and bring them before the evil monarch. Just before they arrive in Elloweer they hear of a mysterious monster that's causing problems in the kingdom, and the mysterious Rogue Knight has been unseating knights from power, much to the government's disdain. As they travel through Elloweer the friends will meet old and new friends, encounter powerful enemies, and learn secrets that will leave none of them unscathed.
When I was reading Sky Raiders the kingdom of Sambria really took imagination to the extreme. In Elloweer, enchantments and illusion reign supreme. Nothing is what it seems and surprises lurk around every corner. Just when you think you've got something figured out an unexpected twist occurs. The Five Kingdoms series is definitely not your average fantasy series, and a ride you do not want to miss. If you enjoyed the Beyonders series then you'll want to read this book because it shows although on different worlds the two series are part of the same universe.
Characters are in peril. A kid gets abducted. Animals appear to devour a man, but turns up fine. Knights fight and kill people. In a dreamscape characters get chased by monsters. A witch-like beast takes possession of people.
Don't rush to judgement. Things are not always as they appear. Be cautious with what information you share with others, because you never know who you're talking to. Nobility and honor comes in all shapes and sizes. Always remember who you are. Never give up on those you love or yourself. We all have hidden talents and gifts that can benefit everyone.
