Title: Gorgon (WhipEye Chronicles Book #2) | Author: Geoffrey Saign | Publication Date: September 1, 2015 | Publisher: KiraKu Press | Number of pages: 316 | Recommended age: 10+
Samantha and Jake have two days to save their poisoned parents, and only Gorgon—the cruel and scheming leader of Amazon Lessers—can help them. But Gorgon is planning to destroy KiraKu, and he pits Sam against Jake. Worse, Sam feels controlled by the supernatural staff, WhipEye, and Jake gains a dangerous weapon. Can their friendship survive its greatest test? Can Sam and Jake stop a war and save their parents? Mysterious creatures, dragons, and Gorgon force them into a life or death adventure that some will not survive……a thriller about love, nature, wildlife, intuition, and trusting yourself…
I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
I read the first book in the WhipEye Chronicles, WhipEye, so I was looking forward to reading Gorgon, the next book in the series, and I liked it even more. These are fantasy adventures for young teens and the adventure is non-stop in Gorgon.
Sam and Jake are teens who saved our world in the first book and they are facing new challenges now, a year later. Not only do they need to find the antidote to heal their parents after they’re poisoned, but they are the only hope to keep our world from being taken over by Gorgon.
I like Geoffrey Saign’s writing style. His descriptions make it easy to visualize not only this world but KiraKu as well. Gorgon is full of adventure and suspense and has a couple of surprises along the way. I think young teens, as well as older readers, who like fantasy will like it.
