Rivers of Fire (Atherton #2)
4 stars320 pages
Published May 1, 2008 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
I picked this up immediately after finishing the first book in this trilogy, The House of Power, because I liked that one so much.
This one didn't disappoint. It was nice and short, too, which was perfect. I don't know if I could take anymore Cleaners mayhem.
It was a great adventure book, with flavors of Jules Verne rippled generously throughout.
There are some gruesome deaths and some themes that might disturb little ones, but I can recommend this book to kids older than 8.
I will likely pick up the third book to complete this trilogy, but honestly this book wraps up the story of Atherton pretty well.
