Join us for an evening of Spirit Animals as the adventure continues in the second and third books of the epic multiplatform fantasy series!Library: Spencer Road Branch-Community Commons Map
We will have a special appearance of four birds (a peregrine falcon, an owl, a raven and a buzzard) from the World Bird Sanctuary! Which one will be your Spirit Animal?
Maggie Stiefvater, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Shiver Trilogy and the Raven Boys, continues the adventure in Book two of this fantasy series.
“In the world of Erdas, only a rare few are able to summon a spirit animal in the way Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan have. The bond they share with their animals is a partnership that allows them to access more-than-human abilities.
But what if there was another way to create a spirit animal—to force the bond, giving the human partner total control? And what if someone with selfish intentions was offered this gift . . . with a catch.
The four young heroes have barely had time to come together as a team, and their own spirit animal bonds are still greatly untested. But now they face a brutal confrontation against an enemy who will break any rule to defeat them.”
Garth Nix, the bestselling author of many award-winning books, including The Abhorsen Trilogy, The Seventh Tower series, The Keys to the Kingdom series, and The Troubletwisters series (with Sean Williams) and Sean William, the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Twinmaker and co-author with Garth Nix of the Troubletwisters series, continue the adventure in the third book of the epic series.
“Erdas is a land of balance. A rare link, the spirit animal bond, bridges the human and animal worlds. Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan each have this gift—and the grave responsibility that comes with it.
But the Conquerors are trying to destroy this balance. They’re swallowing whole cities in their rush for power—including Meilin’s home. Fed up with waiting and ready to fight, Meilin has set off into enemy territory with her spirit animal, a panda named Jhi. Her friends aren’t far behind . . . but they’re not the only ones.
The enemy is everywhere.”
