Goddess Fish Blog and the author shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you). This is the second in this series and can be found wherever you buy ebooks.
The Wood Cow Chronicles is very different book from the normal run-of-the-mill stories. Mr. Johnson has created a unique world with all sorts of different animal characters, many of which have strange names. The first book featured Helga, Emil's sister. I'd suggest you begin with Volume 1. I began with Volume 2 and it took a bit to pick up all pieces and get going with the story.
This story moves well. There is danger everywhere. The woods aren't safe, people are being turned into slaves, the king is evil, and everyone in the kingdom is threatened. However, there are folks helping save the slaves.
During the course of this story, more people are drawn into the "free the slaves" movement and the king's power begins to lose strength. The counter movement has begun and it will continue to work against the king in the next volume of this story.
What especially tickled me about this story were the characters. There all all types of animals, all kinds of skills and bits of special knowledge from each them depending on how they spent their lives and where they lived. It gives you hope that they will succeed in their quest. We'll have to read the next volume to find out...
