Rating
"A fast-paced, genre-blending adventure now in paperback!"The Tapestry series continues to weave threads of fantasy, mythology, science fiction, and mystery into a wholly original adventure that appeals to fans of everything from Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings to The X-Men. Genre-blending and fully illustrated, The Tapestry novels have caught the attention of middle-grade and young adult readers alike and the series is only getting bigger. In this second book of the series, grave forces are converging to seize control of the Book of Thoth, a hidden artifact whose pages hold the key to creating or unraveling the very threads of existence. Max McDaniels and David Menlo embark on a quest to protect the book from the demon Astaroth, who would exploit its secrets with dire consequence. And with Astaroth free after centuries of imprisonment, the world outside Rowan s gates has already become hostile. Far from home, cut off behind enemy lines, Max and his allies must journey across Europe, descend into the fabled Frankfurt Workshop, brave the tangled corners of the Black Forest . . . and cross beyond the veils of our very world. "After devouring this title, young fans will be clamoring for more."" Kirkus Reviews "Visit www.rowanacademy.com for original content, exclusive artwork, and more!"

Reviews

Gr 6-9-Henry Neff's sequel (2008) to Hound of Rowan (2007, both Random; Recorded Books, 2009) is just as action-packed as the first book and even more exciting. Max McDaniels and his roommate David Menlo, a sorcerer, set off from Rowan Academy to save the world from the demon Astaroth. Their mission, to stop him from acquiring the Book of Toth, also known as the Book of Origins, takes them through a war-torn world and even into a realm outside their own. Max must embrace his destiny as Hound of Rowan and fulfill his mission of protecting David at all costs. If he fails and the demon seizes the book, Astaroth could destroy the present age and everything the two boys hold dear. Jeff Woodman provides another stellar performance, bringing to life the human and nonhuman characters. He perfectly captures Max's coming-of-age through voice changes and the extreme emotional distress he faces in his travails, and brings all the other characters to life. Since there is little backstory presented, listeners must be familiar with the first book. This series will be hugely popular with fantasy buffs, and especially with Harry Potter and Percy Jackson fans.-Sarah Flood, Breckinridge County Public Library, Hardinsburg, KY Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
