Chantarelle is the second book in The Five Stones Trilogy. When The Fog of Forgetting ended, the five kids had just returned home from their first adventure in Ayda. Unfortunately, they had no memory of their journey because they had to come through the Fog of Forgetting.
Now their parents are worried about them; they are acting strangely. Added to that is the fact that Frankie has fallen ill to a mysterious disease. So their parents have a good reason to be worried.
Then one day, Chase remembers an important promise he made to someone in Ayda. Armed with the knowledge of his promise, Chase seeks out Captain Nate to help him get back to Ayda. How will Chase get Captain Nate to go back to Ayda with him? And even if he does convince him, does he really think that Knox and Evelyn are going to stay behind? Find out what happens next in Chantarelle!
Chantarelle was a very good book filled with action, adventure, and thrills on every page. I liked that the author, G.A. Morgan, was able to make the book believable in its own unique way.
I also enjoyed the details and rich descriptions in this book. For example, one line says, “Moss hung like beards along the limbs of the lifeless trees.” A part in the book that I liked was when Chase suddenly remembered about Ayda. It happened in a very memorable and slightly funny way.
The author kept the same characters as in book one, and introduced a few new ones. I enjoyed everything about this book. I would recommend this book to ages 11 and up, or to anyone who loved The Fog of Forgetting.
From the Author:
