Lisle, Holly The Silver Door, 386 p. Orchard (Scholastic), 2009. Genna has found her destiny – to be the Sunrider and free her people and the good nightlings from slavery – and she is trying hard to learn how to accomplish this. Following the instructions of her teacher one day, she and her best friend Catri are, instead, swallowed by a dragon and taken to the Spire, an ancient, now empty, place from where humans used to rule the world. Genna desperately wants to learn her path, but the Spire has ideas of its own – and the two goals may not coincide. If anything, Genna will learn that being the Sunrider means she will have to make very difficult choices. It is so exciting to see the second book in this series! It is a great series for young fantasy lovers. EL, MS – ESSENTIAL.
