{Synopsis} – Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

In the second book in this page-turning series, Tag, Skyla, and Blaze journey to the Crystal Caverns. They are searching for a piece of the magical Ember Stone. But they do not know exactly where it is, and they are not the only ones searching for it . . . The powerful vulture Thorn is also after the stone — and after Blaze! Thorn’s dark magic is quickly spreading across Perodia, so the friends must move fast to reach the stone! This action-packed series makes a great introduction to fantasy and quest stories for newly independent readers. Realistic black-and-white artwork appears on every page!

{My thoughts} – Tag, Skyla and Blaze continue on right where they had left off in the previous book. They continue on with the adventure of collecting all the Ember Stone pieces that they need in order to help defeat the Vulture Thorn.

They end up going into the caverns and rescuing a lost seal as well as finding another piece to the stone. While in the cavern they have a run in with some of Thorn’s spies.

If you’d like to know what happens you will need to read the book. I think that any child that enjoys reading about animals and adventures will enjoy reading this book as well.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
