And we start right off in the middle of the action where book one closed quickly grabbing us and never letting go until the end. We get to know the characters better as we spend more time with them. Princess Rainbow tells her background story which adds a reveal which is most certainly going to be a plot point somewhere down the line. I already have a feeling I know what it means. This time the three friends, along with Rainbow and a guide, journey off to the next village which is inhabited by an elf like race. We are also told what life was like before Uro took over and the important ability of song the inhabitants had of communicating with each other. There are battles against bad guys and the addition of Doug's powers of the Silver Tiger are enormous indeed. This time around Jim must search for his warrior and animal spirit that he will share, the winged panther. I'm loving this story, something totally different for me plotwise, as we move forward with the plot, time is also taken to reveal the background. I haven't picked a favourite character yet, though I have certainly picked the one I don't like, Jim is quite the whiner. As the book started with a character in peril, the book ends with the same character in peril once more leaving us with another cliffhanger anxiously waiting to read book 3. ( )

The epic quest to save Vermonia continues! Four friends set out to find their true warrior spirits in a graphic tale featuring fabulous manga artwork.

Doug, Jim, and Naomi continue their quest to save their friend Mel and the world of Vermonia from the clutches of evil General Uro. After defeating Sassella, the Stone Monster who turns everything she touches to stone, the three friends, along with the help of Rainbow and Fly, journey to the Telaam village. Meanwhile, Jim must answer the call of his spirit guide and protector, Suiran, the Winged Panther, by defeating the sea monster Ickhaby. Once released from his spell, Suiran grants Jim his protection and his powers of flight through the gift of a charmed bracelet. The friends reunite in the village of the Telaam, where the Seer Hanata, keeper of the Vermonia tarot cards, divines the future fate of the four young warriors from Blue Star and predicts a difficult yet promising path to rescuing Mel and returning Vermonia to the peaceful rule of Queen Frasinella.
