The FORK-TONGUE CHARMERS by Paul Durham is the second book in THE LUCK UGLIES fantasy series. In this episode, a new constable in Drowning forces Rye to escape on a pirate ship to the Isle of Pest. Lies and deceit once again make it difficult to know who to trust.

The poem at the beginning of the book will once again draw readers into the world of Slade. While not as suspenseful as the first book, Durham continues to build an interesting world for his many colorful characters. Some young readers may have difficulty following the plot’s many twists and turns, however the exciting conclusion will keep them interested.

The glossary at the end of the book titled “A Seafarer’s Guide to Mumbley-Speak and Other High Isle Chatter” provides useful descriptions of new additions to The Luck Uglies world including Belonger, Intuitives, and Uninviteds.

Filled with engaging heroes and villains, this series will be a hit with middle grade readers. The attractive series book covers make them a great choice for a book display focusing on this popular new fantasy series.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062271539, Hardcover)

It's not easy being the daughter of the High Chieftain of the Luck Uglies.

Now an insidious new lawman in Drowning has declared Rye an outlaw, and she's stuck on the strange and remote Isle of Pest. But the island quickly feels much less remote when the battle to control the future of the Luck Uglies moves to its shores.

To defeat the Luck Uglies' bitterest rivals, Rye must defy a deranged earl, survive a test meant to judge the grit of the fiercest men—and uncover some long-buried family secrets. And when Rye leads the charge to defend the island, she and her friends will meet an eerily familiar enemy. . . .
