Tom vs. the Beast of the jungle
on 31 July 2015
My kids loved this book. I read this to my kids before bed time. This was a lot more action packed then the first book of series 2. My 5 year found bit of it scary, but enjoyed the "Bad Beast" getting their comeuppance. I did like the fact Tom did use a bit more of his powers that he gained from the last quest, the problem I have is he either keeps forgetting about his powers or he keep giving the shield away when he needs it. I do like the fact that Tom does act his age he is overmatched and does need help.
After defeating Zapha, the monster squid, Tom and Elena are on their way to face Claw to retrieve the next piece of the amour. One of the things my younger son found scary was there are some actual fatalities in this book. These beasts are a lot more aggressive then the first series. All in all a good book, very fast passed and action packed. My kids loved it.
