Chantarelle is the second book in the Five Stones Trilogy, written by G.A. Morgan. In this book, Knox and Evelyn return to Ayda and Chase, guided by Captain Nate, returns to Ayda. All three children have their own personal battles to overcome. The book is mainly based on attempting to prevent Dankar from obtaining the mysterious "Fifth Stone". The Fifth Stone is a stone believed to bring balance to the daylights, or life forces, of Ayda. Meanwhile, back home at Summer Ledge, Teddy is left with his mother to find his own way back to Ayda and Frankie is ill with an unknown sickness described as cancer.

Opinion: 

 
 

This book starts off confusing, but rapidly improves upon reaching chapter four. Chantarelle is filled with mystery, humor, and romance. I would suggest this book to my fellow fangirls, or anyone twelve and up, looking for a book to take  you far away from where you are. If it were up to me, I would change the relationship status of Caspar and Rysta and make them a couple. And I would make the font slightly larger, as it is painful to read.

My favorite part of this book was when Knox and Evelyn were returning to Ayda, due to the references to the first book. G.A. Morgan is absolutely excellent at creating characters you can't help but love, and those you can't help but hate. I look forward to reading the third one!
