Keeper of the Crystals 2: Eve and the Fiery Phoenix product reviews

When Eve and Oscar are exploring an old curio shop, Eve finds a small crystal figurine of a phoenix. Before she realises what it is, she touches it and finds herself hurtling down a fast-flowing river towards a steep waterfall. It's happening again!

Oscar and Eve plunge into the dense jungle of Griffid, where tigers rule and every step seems treacherous. But the sky is dark and the jungle is dying, threatening all those who live in it. Can Eve and Oscar bring back the light that will save Griffid and all its precious inhabitants?

I asked to be considered for this book to review for my eldest daughter ( 6.5 years ) - as she is starting to be interested in longer and more involved books . I thought that it would be a nice thing to do to read it together - a little bit each night . I can safely say , it was a great idea and both her and I enjoyed the book immensely , so much so that Miss 4 asked if she could sit in on the story telling ( yesssssss !!!!! )

The book itself is a softcover , and has 71 pages - making it a nice length to read . Each chapter ( there are 9 ) has around 8 pages - enough to challenge Miss 6.5 but not too much that Miss 4 got bored. Eve and the Fiery Phoenix is the 2nd book in the series , and Miss 6.5 has requested I find the 1st one so we can read it together too. The book website recommends these for age 7 +.

The two main characters in this series and each book are Eve and Oscar - who start their adventure this time in the summer , by going into a curio , or antiques / op shop type shop . Eve finds a phoenix figurine, and upon touching it - gets thrown into an adventure again . I do not want to give too much of the story away - so I wont, but in Book 2, they are transported to the jungle of Griffid, where tigers are the rulers and unless the phoenix sings, the sun will not Griffid will slowly freeze . Eve and Oscar need to fix this problem and fast .

This book has an subtle holistic and environmental theme - combined with the idea that working together can solve many problems . The book gets this message across very well though - and there are enough twists and turns , adventure , magic and action to intrigue and captivate both girls and boys .

I am really looking forward to the 3rd installment of this series that is due around about now ( October 2015 ) and also to finding (hopefully ) the 1st one at our library .
