With Atherton inverting, a young boy with a penchant for climbing and his friends go on a journey of a lifetime through the hidden corridors of the only world they’ve ever known.
Rivers of Fire, being the middle book in a trilogy, concerns itself with questions of war and evolution. Everything on Atherton is in flux, from society to the ecosystem to geology itself. I don’t want to give too many spoilers for book 1; suffice it to say that our heroes remain in jeopardy as they struggle to save the people of their world from the menacing Cleaners and the wicked Lord Phineus. Like with Book 1, I was hooked from page 1 and blasted through it during a blessedly long nap by Superfast Toddler. Can’t wait to read book 3!
