About the Author

Steve Voake has always been fascinated by insects, but it wasn't until he was tracked and bitten by a horsefly that he got the idea for The Dreamwalker's Child and its sequel, The Web of Fire. In order to find the time to write, he used to get up at 3am and work through the night. After many happy years as headmaster of a primary school in Somerset, he finally hung up his mortar board to write full time. He is married with two children.

Reviews

Gr 5-8-This sequel to The Dreamwalker's Child (Bloomsbury, 2006) is packed with action. Sam Palmer has returned to Aurobon, not remembering the four intervening years on Earth. Skipper, believed dead, also reappears. In the meantime, Vermia has taken over the city of Vahlzi, and Captain Firebrand and other Vahlzians have fled into the mountains to form a secret resistance force. Of course, Sam and Skipper are needed again to save the day, but will they thwart Emperor Odoursin's evil plan to kill all humans back on Earth? Web of Fire is every bit as wild a ride as its predecessor. Reluctant readers are likely to get hooked by the action and the fascinating descriptions (and occasional pen-and-ink illustrations) of the gigantic insects used as aircraft in Aurobon. The climactic scene in the White House is a little flat, but the finale makes up for it. Boys will relate to Sam and girls will find a heroine in Skipper. While reading the first book will add to the enjoyment and understanding of this title, it's not strictly necessary. A high-flying sci-fi/fantasy/adventure.-Nancy Kunz, Tuckahoe Public Library, NY Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
