Erika-Elizabeth's Review: Gift of Sunderland by Jeanne E. Rogers was a wonderful and suspenseful book.The book is a middle grade fantasy that is very touching. The story is mainly about the fight over two brothers over one very important role. The fight leads to a lot of tragedy and has a big impact over Sunderland and Acadia. My favorite character was Fergal, as she was loving, brave, courageous, and learned so much. A few of the characters took risked their lives for each other. I love how there were many Australian things to learn about in this book.I loved the first book as well and couldn't wait to read this one!
Erika-Elizabeth's Review: The Sword of Demelza is a very suspenseful book written by J.E. Rogers. The book is about a few things, starting off with the prologue where you learn a bit about Devon, a fox who lives at the Acadia Abbey with with the monks there.
The book introduces you to many other characters all of whom play an important role in the story. Each of these begin with their own quest and eventually meet each other. They soon learn that they must work together and help each other out. I found each of the characters to be pretty smart and courageous. I think they teach the reader about working together and that there are hard choices in life which we must all try to do our best to choose the right one. There are many morals in this book and that is wonderful! I really liked the story!
Be sure to check out her website with the kids because it's full of unusual animals to learn about!
