Landon Snow and the Shadows of Malus Quidam

Title: Landon Snow and the Shadows of Malus Quidam
Author: R.K. Mortenson
Published by Barbour Publishing, 2006.
ISBN: 1-59789-044-8.

Landon is just making up that story of visiting another land isn't he? Holly is Landon's younger sister who doesn't believe that Landon ever visited another land last year. Holly is definitely convinced after she visis Wonderwood with him. But this time Holly has been kidnapped by wolf-like creatures. Landon will need to enlist the help of his friends that were introduced in the first book of this series to find Holly. Landon will need lots of courage to rescue his sister from the shadows of darkness and Malus Quidam's power. It will take all of Landon's faith - to finally defeat Ludo and the evil forces that hold him and many of the others captive in Wonderwood.

The characters in this story are like normal people as we all have weaknesses. But the fact that they have weaknesses just makes them more like the intended audience of this series. I particularly like that he is able to put his faith into practice.

The story is very engaging and had me gripped from the beginning to the end. R.K. Mortenson has done it again with the second book in this Landon Snow series. I'm glad that he takes Biblical truth and creates a fantasy story around specific Bible verses. I will definitely enjoy reading all the books in this series.
