D.M. Cain has another winner in The Shield of Soren (The Light and Shadow Chronicles Book 2). What will a young boy do when his mother is too busy running a country to pay attention to him, his father's so wrapped up in an unbearable grief, and his brothers are already grown and fighting to protect the land from the Brotherhood of Shadow? Chances are he's going to find some kind of mischief to get into, only this time, the safety of his entire family is at risk.
You'll love the good vs evil, angel vs demon theme that runs through this book. There are so many characters that you'll want to learn more about when you close the final page, that you'll be joining me in begging Cain for more on each of them. Even the evil leader of the Brotherhood of Shadow has to have a backstory that will both thrill and terrify us.
I'm delighted with the depth of the young Soren Nitaya and how he interacted with the various members of his family. His talents and intelligence would definitely put him at the top of his class, but those same assets will help him piece together the puzzle of the ancient prophecy. This is definitely a Coming of Age fantasy young and old alike will not be able to put down until they've read the last page. I definitely recommend this book.
The Shield of Soren by D.M. Cain is an adventure tale in a fantasy world that could be real. Cain has once again set the stage with good versus evil in way that makes me want more. No spoilers. Read it yourself. You won't be sorry.
