Anabar is back in an all new adventure! In the first book of this series (“Anabar’s Run”, see my review HERE), Anabar was being trained as a Scout (a protector of Anabar’s homeland Semdela) by his mentor Omalof. Omalof becomes angry with Anabar because he is getting too much unwanted attention (which a Scout shouldn’t do). Omalof sends Anabar to the border between Semdela and Ricamareth. Foreign soldiers have been coming over the border to scout around. Anabar is captured and taken to a labor camp in Ricamareth. After months of hard-work, Anabar saves the Queen of Ricamareth from a deadly snake. The  King frees Anabar as a reward. Anabar eventually falls in love with the King’s daughter. Anabar is still a Scout for Semdela and learns as much as he can before returning home. Anabar finds out he must now stop a war between the two countries!

I loved this book! I thought it was even better than Anabar’s Run (the first book in the series). There is a ton of action and adventure in the book. Anabar is an awesome character (especially in a “boy’s book”). He is brave, nice, cool, and he knew what had to be done and then did it. I really like that in a main character. The story was really great too – very exciting. I like learning about Anabar’s homeland, Semdela, and Ricamareth. I recommend “Anabar Rises” to kids 9+.

Five out of five bookworms for “Anabar Rises”!

  1. Great review Erik! Sounds like a wonderful book with lots of action and a great main character. Well done. Best of luck to Mr. Granger, I’m going to have read both books:)

  2. Enjoyed your review Erik. Glad you included the first so I could remember what the first story was about. I agree, from your review, Anabar Rises sounds like it is getting even better with all the action. Surely there will be another book in the series. The book even interested me.

  3. Hi Erik,
    Thank you very much for your kind review. I really appreciate you taking the time to read Anabar Rises and posting this on your site.

  4. Great review, Erik. I liked the second one just a little better, too.

  5. I really admire your tenacity in reading e-books. My own e-reader has not been used since the time we arrived here in Singapore. *sigh* I hope I’d learn to like it soon enough. Great review as per usual. 🙂

    • Thank you! I liked my Kindle when I got it from the start (I was 8 or 9, I got it for my birthday), but I was young *ha ha. 1 or 2 years ago. 😉 * I still like it, but I prefer hardcopies and paperbacks. It comes in handy when I am reading a 500+ pages book 🙂
