Venom and Song

    Now having returned to the unusual world of Allyra, the renowned Seven Elven Lords struggle to meet up with the expectations of their fellow Elves. They must train to fight in the elite Vexbane form while they can. Meanwhile, the Spider King’s forces rally to locate and exterminate the elves. When bad turns to worse, the Lords must be ready to thwart the Spider King’s plans and end his reign of terror. But who knows what horrors the Spider King has kept locked away.

    This fantasy fiction novel definitely has a feel of its own. It has a unique combination of story styles: medieval, other-worldly, and contemporary. It even throws in a little harmless romance. It’s plot was well thought-out, despite a few minute details missed. Different from the previous novel, Curse of the Spider King, there were less main characters. What Mr. Batson and Mr. Hopper pulled off is that each of the 9 main characters’ individual characters were shown and developed well throughout. Most important were the story’s themes, such as trusting God at all times and fellowshipping with believers. I recommend this book to anyone who sees it on a shelf.
