Book Review: Secret of the Swamp King

by Jonathan Rogers.
I received this book from Mind & Media to review.
This is the second book in The Wilderking Trilogy. Sort of a retelling of the Biblical story of David. The first book had a blatant almost word-for-word scene from David's life. I didn't catch any of that in this book. This series is written for the juvenile action/adventure/fantasy section of the book store. But anyone that enjoys a good story will enjoy this book.
It helps out if you've read the first book in the series Bark of the Bog Owl.
Though the book is predictable, it's still a good read, and a quick read. My favorite characters are the Feechies - without them this series wouldn't be nearly as good - and they are integral to the story and the prophecy that sets it off in the first book.
Get this series, and read it your children or let them read it themselves.
