Omschrijving

Discover for yourself why reviewers are comparing The Nethergrim to Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and Ranger's Apprentice! The next great epic fantasy is here . . .

For the lords of the north, land is power. The Nethergrim, now awoken and free to wreak its evil upon the world, offers the promise of victory to those ruthless enough to accept its foul bargain. One ambitious lord, eager for the chance to conquer and rule, succumbs to temptation and helps to free the Skeleth--eerie, otherworldly beings said to be unstoppable in battle. The Skeleth merge with the bodies of their victims, ruling their minds and turning them into remorseless killers. Worse yet, to kill the man inside the Skeleth only frees it to seize a new host, starting a cycle of violence that has no end.

Such chilling tales are not enough to stop young Edmund, innkeeper's son and would-be wizard, from seeking for a way to turn back the oncoming tide of destruction. Along with his best friends--Katherine the trainer of war-horses and Tom the runaway slave--Edmund searches for a magical weakness in the Skeleth, something that might allow him to break their never-ending curse. The three friends join with the legendary hero Tristan in a battle of courage, wisdom, wits, and sacrifice to stop the Skeleth from ravaging their homeland and all they hold dear.

This adventurous tale that marries earthly greed to otherworldly evil is perfect for fans who enjoy the epic worlds of John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice, Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, and George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones. Discover for yourself why so many are making the comparisons!

Praise for The Skeleth

[A] solid contender for the teen answer to Game of Thrones. --Kirkus Reviews

Jobin is a fine writer . . . Recommend this to fans of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson or Brandon Mull's Fablehaven series. --VOYA

With this sequel, Jobin has expanded this fantasy adventure into a series of epic proportions. . . [T]he kind of series that hooks both new and veteran readers. --Booklist

The book ends on a cliff-hanger that will have readers anticipating the next volume. Fans of the first title will enjoy this new adventure; purchase this growing series where middle school YA readers are ravenous for epic fantasy. --School Library Journal
