A forgotten terror-- a demon that knows Warren better than he knows himself-- has risen again and is gathering power with a singularly evil goal in mind: to capture and enslave the wild spirit of the Earth itself.
Warren must fight or see all that he cherishes destroyed.
Battle for Cascadia ( The Gaia Wars #2) by Kenneth G.Bennett
Expected publication: December 10th 2011 by CreateSpace
Only 2 days ago i reviewed the 1st book, Gaia Wars, and that's a main reason i will be a little cryptic with this review as well, since i know not many know the book and i don't want to spoil them.
Anyway, Battle for Cascadia continues Warren's adventure and is still as breathtaking as the first one. Warren might be just 13,but i really like how he changes and grows up with everything that happens, mistakes or not. And it was about time to learn some more things about the rest characters as well. (Thaddeus was one of my favorites).
A good change from the previous book is how much more action is in it.There are many additional action scenes including some violence, which is normal if you think we are talking about a fight. It was like getting to the point after a good amount pages in introduction so you will get to know what's going on better. But still, is a good book for kids and older people. I really like how even if a kid can read it, still its mature and full of messages and a grown up can read it too.
And last but not lest, Kenneth G. Bennett writing is for another time beautiful. Really cinematic and makes you have full images not only of the close scenes but for the whole environment of the book as well.
As for some reason i expected, there will be a third book at the series which i really can't wait to read about :) The books are so light and easy to read, without being less enjoyable than other stories out there which makes you feel good at the end.

Remember, it’s all about the books!About The Gaia Wars: DEADLY SECRETS have been buried in the Cascade mountain wilderness for centuries. Hidden. Out of sight and out of mind. Until today… Warren Wilkes, age 13, doesn’t like what a greedy housing developer has done to his peaceful mountain community, so he vandalizes the developer’s property, flees into the wild, and stumbles upon an ancient human skeleton revealed by torrential rain. More than old bones have been exposed, however, and the curious artifact Warren finds makes him question his own identity, and his connection to an ancient terror. A terror destined to rise again and annihilate all that Warren loves. He must fight or see his whole world destroyed. Get it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
About Battle for Cascadia: When Warren Wilkes, age 13, stumbles upon a mysterious relic deep in the Cascade Mountains, wonder reigns. Brimming with secrets and sentient energy, the relic leads Warren to a fantastic chamber, and to shocking revelations about his identity. Now wonder has turned to dread. A forgotten terror—a demon that knows Warren better than he knows himself—has risen again and is assembling an army; gathering power with a singularly evil goal in mind: to capture and enslave the wild spirit of the Earth itself. As war erupts and the planet slips into chaos, Warren embraces his destiny and finds help where he least expects it. Get it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
