"The Prodigals: Giants in the Land" by Clark Burbidge

Book 2 of Clark Burbidge's trilogy is here! In this new work, we are reacquainted with Thomas and his quest to discover the reason why the giants left the land, and meet his grandchildren Tommy and Rose. What problems will beset the people of Land's Forest Ward? Where/Who are the giants?

Tommy is a hard worker and believes people should be looking at him as a person in his own right, not in the shadow of his grandfather. But, times are what they are, and he has to deal with it. Until, that is, his sister is kidnapped and he has to find his path by stepping up to save her. Tommy, Thomas, and a group of prodigals step out of their comfort zone in search of the giants. Will they be able to save Rose? Can Tommy step out of his grandfather's shadow? Should he? Who will be the giant(s)?

Clark Burbidge weaves his story with realism and suspense, creating a world readers will enjoy. He also plants the seed of becoming a giant, and what that means. This is a wonderful second book, and I can't wait for the third in the series. If you enjoy books that entertain and instruct, this series is for you. I received my review copy from PR by the Book in exchange for an honest review.
