The Fairest Star- Friends & Enemies Part II
As exciting as the first, this book takes place again in the present time as well as the sixteenth century. Eloise and Tommy resume their exciting quest to try and catch the evil priest Drogo and bring him to justice.
Tommy and Eloise find themselves back in present times after Drogo escapes their clutches. Eloise is terrified of all the new, noisy things going on around her. She has a habit of calling those around her peasants, which Tommy quickly explains is not what people are called in these present times. Eloise is also introduced to chocolate and falls madly in love with it. She slowly is introduced to more and more modern things, and tries desperately to learn the modern lingo.
When Tommy and Eloise realize that Drogo also has the capabilities of traveling to the present time, they pursue him there. He escapes their clutches again and Tommy and Eloise find themselves separated. Eloise gets sucked back to her time, the sixteenth century, and Tommy soon follows; fearing Drogo will kill her.
They search for Drogo and all sorts of unexpected trouble find them along the way. Eloise finally finds out who her father is and has a reunion with him, only to be separated from him again, possibly permanently.
This story is very well written. David Field keeps the story going at a steady pace, which captures and holds the readers’ attention. His characters continue to be a strong force in his story. It is filled with action packed adventure that flows nicely with the first book in the trilogy.
I would recommend the
books in this trilogy to anyone who enjoys an adventure story, an
setting, and detailed, strong characters. This book leaves its readers
to know what happens in the third and final book.
