Dandelion Fire by N.D.Wilson

I read Dandelion Fire a couple months ago, but for some reason I never actually posted my review of it... there are actually quite a few books that fall into that category. I am thinking of implementing a new rule for myself; I cant start reading a new book until I have posted my review of the one I just finished. (we'll see how long that lasts :D )

Dandelion Fire is a sequel to 100 Cupboards, and a very good one at that. I don't know what to say, I have so much praise for it! Some things that happen are so unpredictable, but everything that happens is just perfect. Once again N. D. Wilson had me reading 100 miles an hour on the edge of my seat.

Henry is still staying with his Uncle, Aunt, and cousins in Kansas, but he gets a letter saying he has to come home soon. His parents are getting a divorce and there will be a lot to sort out. And Henry isn't sure he wants to go home... there was still so much he wanted to do! And then one day when he is outside just before a Thunderstorm he sees a dandelion that seems to glow as if it was on fire, and how he goes blind... so many things happen I am having a hard time trying to touch on them all! But something happens... Henry finds out where he is from and who he really is. His uncle learns a few things too...

I absolutely love this series. I cannot WAIT for the next book. N.D. Wilson is an incredible writer and my kids all love him.

Goot stuff, eh Marie?

(chuckle. do you ever wonder if anonymous comments are the author? :) That'd be funny. Like the blurb on Ben Stein's Expelled DVD: "I love this film!" -Ben Stein
