Four mythical Elementals—Water, Land, Air, and Fire—have the power to save two worlds, Earth and Farworld, from a common enemy: the Dark Circle.
In book one, Water Keep, a portal has been opened between the two worlds, allowing Marcus, from Earth, and Kyja, from Farworld, to combine their unique gifts and begin their epic quest to find the Elementals.
In book two, Land Keep, Marcus and Kyja travel with Cascade, a Water Elemental, toward Land Keep, the home of the powerful and wise Land Elementals. However, their journey may end before it even begins.
Land Keep is empty, deserted for at least a thousand years, and the rumor is that the creatures who once controlled all land magic are extinct. Marcus and Kyja’s only hope seems to lie in finding the Augur Well, a legendary Oracle protected by subtle traps and mind-bending trials. To succeed in their quest, Marcus and Kyja must also avoid the Keepers of the Balance, an order dedicated to redistributing magic to the rich and powerful. And they must travel far underground, where Cascade is unable to follow and where they will be unable to leap to the safety of Earth.
As the Dark Circle closes around them, Marcus and Kyja are faced with the temptation of what they desire most. Sacrifices must be made, and not everyone will survive unscathed.
This seems like a book full of suspense and excitement. My siter read the first and it seems like a must read.
I just finished Land Keep and loved it! You can read my review on my blog: http://www.queenoftheclan.com/2009/10/book-review-farworld-land-keep-by-j.html
I really enjoyed the creativity Scott shows in this book. It's amazing. The added complexity is also wonderful. My review is posted on the AML discussion board.
A great second book in this series! The audio book was very well done and I’m enjoying all the adventures the two main characters have through FarWorld. Such imagination! I can see why my kids have loved these books.
