Mirage by Jenn Reese - ADVISABLE

Mirage (Above World #2) by Jenn Reese, 356 pages. Candlewick Press, 2013. $7.99

Language: G (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG13



During their encounter with Fathom, Aluna and her friends learned that his sibling Scorch is planning to claim the Equians, as Fathom tried to do to the Kampii. Rushing to the desert to warn Dash’s people, Aluna and her friends find that they are too late—Scorch is close to achieving her goal. Dash broke his exile for nothing, and now they may all pay the price.

This book cannot be read without its prequel, Above World, and Mirage is just as good, if not better. The extension of their story is engaging as Aluna’s quest continues far from home, and the character development helps prevent the obstacles to success from becoming repetitive. Adventure awaits those who stick with Aluna, and the final installment is begging for me to stay immersed in this world.
