Another epic adventure to get lost in!,
This review is from: Song of the Shaman (the Glass Apple Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Once again we are taken on a journey back in time. This time we are thrown far beyond the realms of the history books, to the time when sabre toothed tigers roamed the Badlands of what would eventually become America. We are only travelling with Jason and Kylie this time, having left Ethelbert and Etain behind. The children however are joined on their quest by an unusual ally. Ant is very in your face, very OCD, and very very camp. The ancient ones left at home also acquire a new companion in the form of a bottle blonde, busty and brash American woman to help them through their own quest. As you would expect from a book in the Glass Apple series there is a good balance of danger, adventure and humour.
The tone of the tale has altered again, reflecting the landscape of the story. There is a feeling of space, of time, and of things coming together. Yet unfortunately, the more things start coming together the more they start falling apart. In both timelines there are twists and turns which take us into different directions. faces from the past appear in both worlds, offering insight and advice, adding to the different layers of the tale being told.
I found that this book in the series took on a further narrative change, the writing style though still very descriptive seems to have in a way matured somewhat. There is no feeling that this part of the story was rushed, it feels organised and more structured. it flows nicely and it would appear that many of the errors noted in the first two books have been resolved. As before we are left hanging on the final page, only this time there is more than one cliff hanger to content with. I look forward to book four 'Legacy of the Abandoned one' with eager anticipation.
