This is Book Two of The Berinfell Prophecies. I have not read book one but felt like I was able to glean enough from the first few chapters of the book to not feel lost. It is a fantasy/adventure story of seven teenagers who are thrust into a world filled with supernatural creatures and told that they are the leaders of that world.
The book was frightening, gory and violent with many scenes of wars and battles depicted. The action was fast-paced and the story line moved quickly. For my own tastes it was a bit dark and depressing. The story is not overtly Christian and requires some effort and thought to make it such. There is a classic good vs. evil theme and an overall theme of the value of teamwork. The story was well-written and exciting, however I would not recommend it to younger children due to the violence.
It is always better to read a series of books from the beginning to really be able to follow the tale the authors weave.
