Well, this next book I was surprised to find in the bookstore because I wasn't expecting this until next month. It's the next book in the Spirit Animals series, Rise and Fall:
The team has been split. Abeke and Meilin have been captured by the Conquerors and Rollan and Conor have to travel across Nilo to find Cabaro, the Great Beast who's not only powerful and dangerous, but is a known human-hater. Finding allies in Nilo is next-to-impossible as the Conquerors have almost conquered all of the continent. Still they must find a way to get the Golden Lion talisman from the lion before the Conquerors do, or else risk Kovo the Ape getting free of his prison. Friendships will be tested, lives will be lost, and no one will be prepared for what is coming.
I have been enjoying the Spirit Animals series because I enjoy how the world feels like Earth but is still different. Plus the ability to bond and work with your own animal is just plain cool. You can tell in this book the situation is growing worse as the Conquerors seem to be pretty much unstoppable. This book will take you on a roller coaster ride that will blow your mind away.
Children are in peril. Animals and people are killed. A lion threatens everyone. A girl is killed for failing.
People will try to use our trust against us. Our friends can give us love and support. Deception can come from anywhere.
