did not like it
bookshelves: childrens

I actually really enjoyed this book and its predecessor when I read them several years ago. But then I saw this article, and any illusions I had of this just being a fun book for kids was destroyed:


The author is currently serving time for possession and trading of child pornography. Really nasty stuff, as it mentions in the article.

I'm grossed out beyond reason, because I can't imagine how his position of trust as an author could possibly have led to crimes against the very children he was writing for. This is all conjecture on my part, but I can't get that image out of my head.

Reading these books are up to you, since they're actually good stories, but the subtext and implications behind his words are too much for me to handle.

Basically a repeat of info from my review of first book in series.

Alexandra Gold Oh my what a shock!
I just bought this book today, but I will read it anyway...

Michelle Witte They are interesting books and fairly well told, so you might enjoy them. I just figured I'd mention the background info so people wouldn't be surprised and shocked if they found out later.

Nevey I will only judge the book & lets the author go to hell as he to be pure evil.

Kagama-the Literaturevixen I so get what you are saying Michelle.I got the same feeling after finding out about Marion Zimmer Bradley,but in that case I found a lot of things that had puzzled me with her books really sickening.
