So, you think you had a bad day? Let me tell you about mine. My parents got murdered. The ones from Earth who'd adopted me as a kid, as well as the ones I was born to, on another planet. I was chased and almost killed by assassins. I crossed an inter-dimensional portal and found myself on a strange new world. I met some dwarves with the worst dress sense I'd ever seen. I f ...more

Elai Nelson and the Storm on the Sand is the second book in the Fire on the Clouds trilogy and picks up just after the first book left off. There will be no spoilers for either book in this review.

“All I’m saying is, I hate Mondays.”

Fans of the first book, Elai Nelson and the Prophecy of the Child, will enjoy the continuation of fantastical elements and humor as they follow Elai in his adventures. The events from the first book are recapped at the start to help reacclimatize the reader with the

This novel picks up almost immediately following the disasters that concluded Elai Nelson and the Prophecy of the Child, book one of Ban’s Fire on the Clouds trilogy. The odds of defeating the Zul’im orcish horde are now heavily stacked against those who escaped with their lives from the fierce battle but Ariel and Elai are determined to persevere.

I love the pop culture references in this series (chapter titles like ‘At least he’s not big, purple, and wearing a golden metal glove’) and the way B

After the dramatic setback at the end of Book 1, our hero Elai is back and determined to redeem himself by proving his worth to his allies and friends. This round, I really liked his resourceful use of the items in his backpack, which, given the number of explosions and shipwrecks he's encountered, has surprisingly survived his adventures intact thus far. Once again, a fantasy RPG video game is called to mind.

Although it's clear that Elai's growing up, learning to make better decisions and hold

The second book of the Elai Nelson series is better than the first - character development of the protagonist Elai is richer and deeper. You get a sense of Elai growing into a complex individual, and yet still able to identify with his flaws, feelings and struggles. The plot and adventures are as exciting as ever, perhaps even better than the first book! Stakes are high and the end leaves you craving for the third book to see how things will turn out!! A good page-turner. Again, recommended for ...more

"The 2 books are funny and exciting. It makes me want to read more. Some parts are heartwarming and some are sad. It makes me curious about what would happen next.
I like Creep and Elai. Elai is smart and funny. Creep is also very funny."
This review is written by my 8 year old daughter who loves the 2 books and is looking forward to the 3rd book of the trilogy.
