They travel from the Eastern states to Nauvoo and Utah, and eventually settle in Canada (the first Mormon community, in fact). The family grows. The Godfreys are uprooted and put down roots, make do with next to nothing, and leave their mark not only as Latter-day Saints, but as citizens.
LDS author Randy Lindsay’s new book Battlementals: Pounce and the Riddle of Fire is an adventure that will enthrall middle grade readers and capture their imagination.
Brock Booher, author of The Charity Chip, says, “Follow Pounce on his quest to solve the riddle of fire and you will find yourself laughing at the unique characters, mystified by the strange world, and captivated by the epic adventure. This is one journey you don’t want to miss.”
The second book in the Battlementals series brings a page-turning, coming-of-age fantasy adventure. Parents looking for a good read for middle graders will find Pounce and the Riddle of Fire captivating. It is written in the style of Brandon Mull’s Fablehaven and Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.
The back of the book summary follows:
“Pounce is the son of the tiger-folk chieftain. When his honor is challenged, Pounce must prove he is worthy to take over for his father someday. He is given a grand quest to earn his name of maturity and the right of leadership, but it seems impossible. How could anyone find the lost Saber tribes of the Eastern Jungle? And if he doesn’t, he’ll be banished forever.
With no other choice, Pounce begins his journey across the treacherous realm of Fire, but soon finds he is not alone. A human girl with a secret and two gazelle-folk trying to get to the city of Torch View decide to join him. Danger lurks around every bend and the four unlikely companions find themselves battling elemental monsters and Fire creatures. Unable to turn back, Pounce must rely on the help of his new friends to uncover the secret of the Riddle of Fire and continue his quest. When lives are on the line, will Pounce have the strength and courage to finish the quest or will he fail and be banished form the friends and family that he loves?”
Author of In Too Deep, Jennifer K. Clark calls the novel “[a]nother memorizing journey into the world of Battlementals. With fascinating characters and a well-crafted adventure, Randy Lindsay keeps you turning pages in a tale that will draw you into and hold you until the very end.”
