Reviews

In Vendetta, the second installment in Chris Humphrey's Runestone Saga, Sky travels back in time to gather wisdom from his ancestors in order to challenge his grandfather. About the first book, The Fetch, PW wrote that the author "melds real and unreal elements to powerful effect." (Knopf, $15.99 336p ages 12-up ISBN 9780-375-83293-2; Aug.) Having won back her throne in The Looking Glass Wars (called an "imaginative opener" by PW), Alyss is now faced with ruling Wonderland. But when the fearsome foot soldiers from her evil Aunt Redd's reign start appearing, Alyss must once again find the strength to do battle with the forces of darkness in Frank Beddor's Seeing Redd. (Dial, $17.99 384p ages 12-up ISBN 9780-8037-3155-4; Aug.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Gr 9 Up-Having escaped his grandfather Sigurd's nefarious plans in The Fetch (Knopf, 2006), Sky March is now on a quest of his own. Utilizing the ancient Norse magic of runes, Sigurd has possessed Sky's cousin Kristen's body, and the boy is too unskilled to fight his more powerful ancestor. The only thing to do is to travel to Corsica, where the other side of his family is from, and learn something Sigurd doesn't know. Once there, Sky finds himself trapped in a centuries-old blood feud. His great-aunt has promised that she will teach him how to release his "Fetch," or soul, but only if he fulfills his destiny by participating in the family's vendetta. Torn between his need for information and disgust with killing, Sky finds the answers he seeks only when he's willing to travel yet again into the past. Though best read in tandem with its predecessor, this book is a consistently exciting combination of Corsican legend and contemporary fantasy.-Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
