Amos Daragon The Key of Braha by Bryan Perro
Amos is off on another adventure. This time he acquires the Fire mask, but he's on a very dangerous journey.
Delacorte Press sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you). It has been published so you can snag a copy now. This is the second book in this series, so look for "The Mask Wearer" if you'd like to read both books in the series. It would be helpful, but not necessary.
Mr. Perro writes fast action tales with fantasy, shapeshifters, horror, and more entwined in the story. These stories are not for the faint of heart.
The author added a different twist to this story and I still haven't decided if I like it or not. I'm glad the story didn't end like it could have, but how he made that happen was a bit suspect to me. This book is written for middle grades, though, so they probably won't have any problem with it. And it is a fantasy so anything can happen, can't it?
I don't see anyone getting bored while they're reading this series. Why not grab the books and share them with a young reader who enjoys wild romps in a land of fantasy? I'm sure they'll enjoy them both.
