Jorie and the River of Fire by A H Richardson

Jorie misses Rufus.  She's got plenty to do but they had a great adventure together and she wouldn't mind doing more adventuring.  She gets even more anxious when the white cat comes out of the tarn and tells her the good wizard needs her help.  He can turn into a dragon but not when he's confined in a small space and starved.  Luckily, Rufus will be home in a couple of days.

The author sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can buy a copy now.

I read the earlier book in this series and enjoyed it.  This one is even better.  

The first thing Jorie does when they use the tarn to get to the other world is visit the wizard's castle and get the magic stones.  She takes them with her because they warn her of danger and can even give her special powers to fight it.

Trying to find the wizard means they must go to the most dangerous place in this world and find a way across a burning fire river without burning up.  They also have to avoid the hunters the bad wizard uses.  The bad wizard is on guard for them himself, so they try to stay hidden as best they can.

There are new revelations, new characters, and a lot of danger in this story.  It kept me glued to the book as I worried if Jorie and Rufus would both live through the quest.  I also enjoyed the budding romance between Rufus' grandfather and Jorie's aunt.  

With all the odd characters this author has created, you certainly won't be bored!
