Erdas is a
world where some children find a spirit animal. Some even summon rare animals,
like the children from the first series. In this second series, more of the
rare animals are appearing to bond with children, but Zerif, an evil man, has
found a way to steal their animals. Will the children be able to stop them?
Will an old nemesis have truly changed enough to help them out?
read the first series of Spirit Animals, although at my school library its
quite popular with 4th grade readers. So having said that, you MUST
have read the first series to understand this book. I was utterly confused and
could not get on board with it. I will admit I hated the Golden Compass series,
and any book with animal death or the potential for it, so I don’t think this
series would be my cup of tea. I think my library will stick with the first
series on our shelves, as many readers don’t make it through the entire first
series in any case.
