Sam Baron just freed Orkney from the ravages of the Red Sun–but now, imprisoned by Catriona, leader of the Volgrim Witches, Sam finds the darker side of his half-god, half-witch heritage released, and he fears he might destroy what he saved. Unable to resist the witches’ enchantments, Sam has become their most potent weapon, and is leading an army of monstrous men against Skara Brae. Sam’s only hope for salvation lies with his three best friends and a mystical artifact known as the Moon Pearl. Keely travels north in search of the pearl, while Howie prepares for the gathering onslaught. Leo seeks a powerful artifact in the underworld, and faces an ancient evil that could be an even greater threat than Catriona and her cronies. As Sam’s friends rush to save him, other forces are at work in Orkney’s shadows–forces that could help free Sam, or condemn him to the darkness forever.
My cousin Mellanie recommended the Legends of Orkney series a while ago. I reached out to Alane Adams and she was kind enough to send me ALL THREE COPIES! I read The Red Sun in June and absolutely enjoyed it. The world building is fantastic and imaginative filled with beautiful scenery and unique creatures. The story has plenty of action, suspense, and humorous dialogue that will keep you on the edge. Though a great book for children, I think The Red Sun is an amazing story for all ages who loves fantasy and adventure. I have several other books to get through this month, but I can’t wait to travel back to Orkney and continue Sam’s journey. I’m planning on reading both Kalifus Rising and The Raven God in next month since The Raven God will be released September 12, 2017.
