KALIFUS RISING (Legends of Orkney #2) by Alane Adams


The story: Stranded in the mythical world of Orkney, Sam is alone in his fight against the witch Catriona.

A prophecy tells Sam that he must give in to the darkness in

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: This story is the sequel to Adams’s “The Red Sun” (Legends of Orkney #1) and draws heavily on Norse mythology for its magical characters. Percy Jackson fans will like this one, especially if they’ve been following Thor’s adventures with Loki in the Avengers movies.
