***** 5 Cranky Stars *****

This book takes off where book 1 ended with Crik and Jak and the other Downers in the group escaping from Ungstah with the help of the Avarah and Durgan the captain of the guard.



They are free but are faced with many dangers from the Rukmush, the witch's horned crows and the Kings blue guard and the ghostly Kurokah under the witch's control.



They meet and are assisted by an eccentric wizard and there is a dramatic rescue back at Ungstah.
As with book one this one enthrall

The adventure continues.....

I’m still loving these characters and this dystopian land. I’m cheering on the downers and their friends and waiting anxiously for the next part of the tale.

The author’s imagination runs wild in Rise of the Branded as he takes the reader on an epic adventure to a climax that had me biting all my nails off. I don’t often enjoy the continuation of a story as it often falls ...more

When I first started this book I wasn't so sure about the continution of the storyline. As I continued reading, I couldn't put Rise of the Branded down.

To fully understand the storyline you are encouraged to read the first book, Scar of the Downers.

As the Downers escape from Ungstah, Cr
