Book Review: The Wild Folk Rising by Sylvia V. Linsteadt|The Stargold Chronicles #2|

Cover - Copy.jpgUntitled - Copy

The Wild Folks rise again in this epic conclusion to The Wild Folk series. Tim and Comfrey’s mission this time is to save the Wild folks and the island of Farallone from the evil and selfish Brothers trying to encroach on their land and extracting star gold from the bloodstream of the residents.

Tim and Comfrey are the only human living among the wild folks and when a crisis emerges. they have to take help from the different animal clans living on the island, the hardest being to convince them to trust a human when it’s the humankind that’s against their survival. But they have the Weaver of Farallone (a giant spider) on their side and must find three very important objects before time runs out.

This adventure that Tim and Comfrey embark on is dangerous and whimsical, and one of a kind. They are kind kids who show a great level of dedication in saving Farallone including submitting to a life full of nightmares and sacrificing everything they hold dear. The story glides smoothly and there are both lighter and dangerous moments. The author pulls out a lot of amazing tricks out of her proverbial hat making this a page-turner.

Tim and Comfrey’s friendship and trust the wild folks have on them are justified. The prophecy that is to be fulfilled in this story had been foretold in the first book of the series. The language is fluid and easy to follow and the characters are a treat to read and follow. There are equal parts of hardship and achievements and it’s a complete package. Would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a light read with enough adventure to transport you to another world.
