Not too long after finishing that book I received all three books in the next series, "Adventures In The Glade", and I couldn't wait to sit right down and dig into them.
The first book in this series, Revenge!, picks up where The Moment of Truth left off. I may have thought that "peace reigned once again in the Glade", but I have to tell you, that peace was very short-lived!
While Davy "The Chosen One" and his family, along with all the "Old Ones" in the Glade were rejoicing that evil cousin Ronnie's plans to take over the land surrounding their Sanctuary had been thwarted by quick action, Ronnie is plotting to get his revenge. His greedy and vengeful actions end up causing much sorrow and distress to not only the inhabitants of the Glade, but also for himself. Swift action by the wise old owl, better known as "Reverend", may have miraculous results for Ronnie, but has placed the sanctuary of the "Old Ones" as well as Reverend's very own life, back in serious jeopardy.
Now it is left up to Davy, "The Chosen One" to try and save "Reverend"....but will he be able to do so in time to keep the Glade and "The Old Ones" from disappearing from the face of the earth?
Revenge! is definitely an action-packed adventure, which shows us up close the battle between good and evil...light and darkness. And the development of trust, faith and forgiveness aren't just for young Davy...but also for his mother and step-father and the rest of the family. Reminders from the past found in step-dad Jim's Bible give courage and comfort to them when they need it most:
Without knowing this truth from God's Word, Davy and his family and friends would be without much hope in the midst of all the tragedies around them.
I can only say that I was extremely grateful to already have in hand the next book in the series, Redemption, when I came to the end of this story.
I hope you will tune in next time to hear more about the continuing saga of Davy and his friends. I can tell you one thing, Martha Jane Orlando is a master of suspense and keeping the reader on the edge of her recliner! Or porch swing, or rocker, or wherever you happen to be reading this summer. For me, right now it's in the cool house in the recliner! Thank you, Martha, for providing such wonderful reading adventures for me this summer! It has been a delight to enter the world of Davy and "The Old Ones" in the Glade.
Until next time, keep believing!!!
