    Love that the story carries on from the first one. It's fast paced, non stop action and at times I was really hoping that Kurt would give them a break!

    It's hard to review a second volume in a series without repeating the prior review. Charlotte, still 10, has grown up a little. She is able to handle stronger adventures, and she has them. This volume is not so safe, but is still child friendly. The tale moves with pace. It follows well from volume 1 and is also self contained. It could be read out of sequence without damaging the story. It's hard to review a second volume in a series without repeating the prior review. Charlotte, still 10, has grown up a little.

    Positive Points I first read this book when it was in its infancy, being part of the author's online critique group, and I was impressed at how well written it was, even when it still needed work before publication. I'm very honored to now be able to review it on my blog as a published book! I know how much work the author put in this book to make it perfect. I know, because I'm the editor! *shameless plug* What I love the most about this story is the numerous unexpected twists.

I'm very honored to now be able to review it on my blog as a published book! I know how much work the author put in this book to make it perfect. I know, because I'm the editor! *shameless plug* What I love the most about this story is the numerous unexpected twists. Almost every chapter ends with a cliffhanger that made me want to keep reading. The story is told in multiple POVs, clearly delimited by sections within each chapter. I normally prefer a single POV, or alternating between two characters, but this complex story couldn't have been told as well with only one or two POVs. We see the thoughts and actions alternating between the two main characters, Charlotte and Elderfield, as well as those of some minor characters: a warrior elf, a druid assassin, and even Siren himself, sprinkled throughout the story. The grammar and spelling are absolutely perfect!! Oh, wait. I found a few minor things to correct, I can't brag too much. But they will be corrected shortly, and then it will be absolutely perfect! I love the voice in this novel. Charlotte is a modern, human girl from England, and I just really like her thoughts and expressions. This, of course, contrasts with Elderfeld, a teenage elf from another realm, who doesn't always understand what she's saying. He gets a chance to visit her realm, and finds it fascinating, although he does get in "a bit of bother" during his short stay. I made a list of British words and expressions I found while editing, and I'm going to convince the author to make a teacher's guide to go with the novel. Negative Points There was a bit of violence at times, mainly with creatures such as trolls and terrorhawks. There is a war raging, so of course, there has to be some more intense scenes. This would greatly appeal to most boys, and it didn't bother me, but it might be a bit too much for more sensitive readers. What makes this book unique High fantasy is sometimes difficult to read for young readers. I'm thinking about Lord of the Rings, which I had a hard time following as an adult reader. But this book is very easy to read and understand. What makes it even more special is the British words and expressions. If you like high fantasy and British accents, this book is for you! Overall Impression Okay, I may be a bit biased, being friends with the author and his copyeditor, but even from the first time I read this book (in one sitting), I wondered why it hadn't been already published. I couldn't put it down! I read it many times since then, reviewing each chapter and editing it to perfection, and each time I'm equally impressed. I'm glad I get to share this book with the rest of the world. Looking forward to working on book 3!

That is until the elf Elderfield travels to our world to find her to warn her that it is too dangerous to return. The evil druid Siren has unleashed his Troll army and is laying the other realm to waste leaving the elves and dwarves to make a last desperate stand. But what they really need is the Truth Teller, will she ignore the warnings and come to help? This second book in the series carried on Chambers' tale to entice younger readers into reading fantasy stories. This installment is a little darker in tone, as might be expected as war sweeps across the land, but as usual there are touches of humour to lighten the tone. Charlotte's usage of neologisms and idioms to her bemused companions from the other world are always good ('It's doing my head in' and 'this is well creepy' for example). Plus we have the bonus of Elderfield seeing our world (and the chaos that ensues). Siren makes a fairly convincing opponent, suitable nasty without becoming too pantomime. He's nasty work but not irrational, simply wanting to take over his world and if that involves a little death and destruction so much the better. The tone is probably a shade darker than the first book, simply because there is a war rather than an individual journey and so a lot more people are threatened. But this is still firmly on the light side of fantasy with nothing particularly distressing. My only negative point (and the only thing stopping this getting 5 stars) is that Siren's defeat is never really explained, it just happens. This is disappointing only from the point of view that it would perhaps have been nice to have a bit of closure. It has to be said that classic fantasy has its fair share of 'with one bound the heroes win against the odds' endings - look at The Lord of the Rings or The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. In the end the story is what matters, not what is in the end of the story and this is still a fantastic read. Once again Chambers has set out to produce a modern day introduction to fantasy for young adult eyes and once again he has achieved this and in spades. Very much looking forward to the next book in the series.

In The Wrath of Siren, by Kurt Chambers, part two of the Truth Teller Series, readers find Charlotte, the Truth Teller, back home with her family, believing her memories of the other realm and of her friend there, Elderfield, to be but dreams. But when the elf, Goffer, provides Elderfield with a pendant that acts as another Gateway between the worlds, Elderfield determines he must warn Charlotte not to re-visit his world: the Dark Druid, Siren, is on the move. As luck would have it, upon returning back to his realm, Elderfield loses his Gateway. Tragic events follow, the consequences of which are that Elderfield’s Gateway winds up in Siren’s hands. Following the Dark Druid’s visit to Charlotte’s world, he believes he has incapacitated the Truth Teller, making it possible for him to wage a successful war back home. When he attacks the Stronghold, using an army of trolls and the winged beasts known as terrorhawks, inhabitants have little hope for survival. Will Charlotte, the only one capable of stopping Siren, arrive in time? And if she does, will she be able to access the power she will require to save the realm? Kurt Chambers provides young readers with a decidedly “grown up” story in The Wrath of Siren. By that I mean that his writing is solid and his word choices are meaningful. Too often times, stories for young readers lack these things, succumbing to the use of slang and allowing the rules of grammar to go to the wayside. Not so with Chambers. Young readers also will experience a bit of the terror and violence typical of a more grown up story, yet the author does not dally with these issues, nor is he too graphic. Rather, he uses them to add credibility to his tale. Chambers develops characters that middle-graders are likely to identify with—or to fear, as the case may be. Along the way, they will learn of the value of friendship, of the worth of heroes, and of the importance of discovering that sometimes those different from them in some ways might also be like them in others, as the search for freedom and goodness is largely a universal one.

    Charlotte, the truth teller, has been back from the other realm for so long that her time there feels like a dream. Unfortunately, the dark and evil druid, Siren, is on the move making it dangerous for Charlotte to ever return. When her old friend, Elderfield, is given a pendant that will allow him to travel between realms he realizes that he must seek out Charlotte and warn her never to come back to his land. Elderfield’s luck runs out when he loses the key to the gateway and it is found by Sir Charlotte, the truth teller, has been back from the other realm for so long that her time there feels like a dream. Unfortunately, the dark and evil druid, Siren, is on the move making it dangerous for Charlotte to ever return. When her old friend, Elderfield, is given a pendant that will allow him to travel between realms he realizes that he must seek out Charlotte and warn her never to come back to his land. Elderfield’s luck runs out when he loses the key to the gateway and it is found by Siren who wants to destroy the truth teller so he can carry out his plan without obstacles. Siren comes to Charlotte’s world and believes that he gets rid of her, so he goes home and begins to put his plan in motion. Charlotte has no choice but to return with Elderfield to try to make things right. But war has already begun and Siren will stop at nothing until he destroys those who oppose him. Will Charlotte be able to help stop the war? Is it possible for her to find the power to defeat Siren and his army of beasts? Will she be able to get back to her world or has she seen her family for the last time? Read this sequel to find out more about this intense fantasy world and learn what happens when evil is unleashed and hope is running out! Wrath of Siren by Kurt Chambers begins right where Truth Teller left off. Charlotte continues to be a strong and inquisitive character who's braver than she knows. She seemed stronger in this book, and I liked that she resigned herself to what the other world entailed. Elderfield is such a good friend, and I was happy they were reunited, even if it was under dangerous circumstances. This series is perfect for kids who are interested in the Lord of the Rings or other high fantasy stories. I would recommend this book for kids in fourth grade and up. This was an action-packed adventure, and with a war going on there were some scenes with violence. These were handled with enough details that you could picture what was happening, but they weren't gruesome or overly descriptive. Readers will be on the edge of their seats turning the pages. The story line wraps up, but I'm hoping for more books in the series, because I hate to leave characters I've grown attached to!

    I was lucky enough to be sent this sequel for review and thoroughly enjoyed it. Continuing with Charlotte's adventures as the Truth Teller she has yet another battle to face. We are reaquainted with familiar characters and introduced to new ones in this well written and descriptive fantasy adventure. I don't give spoilers but will say that this tale is well worth reading by a variety of ages. I was lucky enough to be sent this sequel for review and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Trolls and elf's I would recommend this book for young teens. Although I did enjoy reading this book. It was just not adult enough for me. But, HAPPY READING. If you're a teen you will love this.
