Venom and Song is a good, strong second book in this series! As with all good series, you have a group of main characters that need to grow together. In this book the seven young Lords do a great deal of learning, including how to be a real team. To survive it is a must to be able to fight together, and they mature a great deal in this book. The seven young lords are learning what it means to be a team, and to fight a common enemy, the Spider King. As soon as they are trained, things really speed up. I'm not going to spoil anything, but it ends with you waiting happily to read the next book.
God is not left out at all in this book. Readers will find a well fused current of scripture being used as a weapon, which of course, it is. While you can read this book alone, it is far better to have read The Spider King first. That is as it should be, because this is a series and they are meant to be read in order. I enjoyed this book, and look forward to the next one!
In a rigorous training program that makes boot camp look like Disneyland, the Seven must quickly learn to harness their own powers, work as one, and elude the Spider King's spies. But as the ancient Berinfell Prophecies are revealed, the Seven soon discover their training might not be enough. To stop the Spider King they must also unravel the secrets of the Rainsong, travel to a creepy, trap-infested fortress to find the legendary keystone, and lead the Berinfell Elves in an attack on the Spider King's own turf. An epic adventure with powerful messages about true strength, forgiveness, and working together as one body that will grab the attention of intermediate readers.
