Hey all, Dani here.
It is time for another Middle Grade March review. I’m so glad that I’ve been able to keep up with regular posts for this month, especially knowing that I have a number of rather entertaining middle grade books to talk about. If any of you have any recommendations of books I should add to my TBR for this or future Middle Grade March events, let me know.
All right, let’s jump into the review.
I should probably start at the beginning, Zed wrote, when things first went wrong?.
Zed, Brock, and their friends may have saved Freestone from destruction, but the fight against the Dangers is far from over. No one knows what to expect next from the dark power that forced the elves to abandon their city. And the influx of elf refugees in Freestone strains resources and brews resentment among the townspeople. Things have shifted between best friends Zed and Brock, as well, with their friendship crumbling under the weight of the secrets they’re keeping from each other.
When tensions reach an all-time high, Queen Me’Shala, leader of the elves, approaches the Adventurers Guild with a mission. She wants a small group of adventurers to go behind the king’s back on a covert mission to save her city, and Zed, Brock, Liza, Jett, Micah, and their elven friend Fel join the quest. To face a powerful form of magic thought to be extinct, the adventurers will have to learn how to rely on each other and fight harder than ever before.
Don’t miss this second installment of Zack Loran Clark and Nicholas Eliopulos’s Adventurers Guild trilogy, where the stakes are raised, the action is breathless, and the dangers will stop even the bravest of hearts.
Rating: 5 stars
I read this book back in January, during Books & Munches’ event January Jam Jar Readathon.
What I still enjoy about this series is that it has a very Dungeons & Dragons feel to it. There are a number of classic monsters that make an appearance in here, and it just made it a fun time for me, as I kept trying to guess what creature would show up next.
I like the party dynamics from all of the kids in this Adventurers Guild, and they get into some pretty interesting situations. But I also feel that a lot of their problems are caused by them keeping secrets from each other, especially when they continually think about how they are being dishonest with their best friends.
Still, I am really enjoying the unfolding world in this series, and I look forward to the adventures in future installments.
