IN THE BRAVELANDS
I love The Lion King, so it’s no surprise that I enjoyed reading the first three books of Erin Hunter’s Bravelands series: Broken Pride, Code of Honor, and Blood and Bone. They intertwine the stories of three African animals. Fearless is a young lion who is made an outcast when the cruel Titan destroys his pride. Thorn, a baboon, tries to fight his destiny and move up to the highest class in his tribe. Young elephant Sky discovers she has the rare gift to read bones.
The animals are ruled by one code: kill to survive. The code is broken when several murders occur, including the death of the leader of the animals, throwing the Bravelands into chaos. Different species vie for the position of Great Parent with horrific results. Fearless, Thorn, and Sky must somehow find a way to restore peace to their land.
The books are filled with action and intrigue. Characters are not always what they seem. There are plenty of cliffhangers to keep turning the pages.
I just found out there two more books in the series. They’re going on my reading list.
