What would happen if King Arthur’s bard, Taliesin, and King David, of Jewish fame, were both reborn (or reincarnated) in modern day California? When they’re living in the same small coastal town, and they’ve both just battled evil together in Bill Hiatt’s previous book, Living With Your Past Selves, a natural question might be, who else is going to turn up. And if that piques your interest, you’re going to love this book, Divided Against Yourselves.

There are hints and mysteries galore in these middle-grade/young adult novels. The blend of well-researched history, literature, and mythology, with a thoroughly convincing depiction of modern high school life, grabs readers from the first words and doesn’t let go. Dialog between teens is just as convincing as the oath-taking of magical beings; mystical powers are as real as a football match; and the trials of a lonely boy are as authentically told as those of a lovesick teen in recovery.

A novel filled with great characters, scary situations, and real emotion and mystery, Divided Against Yourselves is a wonderful addition to the series, and I’m just hoping for more. The first novel is nicely recapped in the back of the book for new readers, and lightly alluded to in the text, so anyone can start the series here if they want. But why miss book one—it’s great too. And the author has expertly mastered the art of bringing each book in a series to a satisfying conclusion while leaving readers eager for more.

Disclosure: After reading the prequel and the first book, well, I had to read the sequel and I’m thoroughly hooked. ( )
