I would like to thank both NetGalley and Simon Schuster for allowing me to read and review this book.

Good Reads Synopsis:

Barclay and his friends must save an island city from the Legendary Beast of the Sea in this second book in the Wilderlore series.

Something is wrong at the Sea. The weeping tide, a carnivorous algae bloom, is eating up all the fish. Beasts are terrorizing the nearby Elsewheres. And Lochmordra, the Legendary Beast, is rising at random and swallowing ships whole.

Barclay’s teacher, the famous Guardian Keeper Runa Rasgar, has been summoned to investigate, and as her apprentice, Barclay gets to join too. But Runa’s nemesis has also been called to the Sea, and he’s brought apprentices of his own. When the not-so friendly competition between them grows fierce, it’s Barclay—the only one from the Elsewheres—who can’t seem to keep up.

The key to stopping Lochmordra lies in his mythical home, but as the flood of the weeping tide encroaches, time is running out to find it. If the rival groups can’t cast aside old grudges and learn to work together, soon the Sea will be destroyed completely. And all the while Barclay must ask himself: is there truly a place for him in the Wilderlands?

Book Review:

This is book 2 in the Wilderlore series. I am having a great a time reading these books. I gave this book 4 stars.

This book talks about how children can accomplish things if they will just put their minds to it. They can overcome obstacles of many types.

In this book enemies are working together to figure a problem that is hurting several islands. The enemies each have several apprentices that they are training, and the children want to be friends, but their masters are not making it easy for them. They do get along off and on during the story.

The main character is dealing with a couple of things which makes him feel like he really doesn’t belong. He is able to overcome the problems he is having and feel better about himself.

This book is about struggles, friendship, and disappointments. You will have to read the book to learn how they are able to accomplish these things and still come out ahead.
