Land of the Giants Book Two: The Prodigals



It was about a year and half ago tat I read Book One Giants in the Land : The Way of Things.  I really enjoyed the first book so when offered to review Book Two – The Prodigals I was excited. These are deep books that really make you think about life. I need these kind of books once and while. While reading I felt like I was a part of the story and the characters all come to life you just don’t want the book to end.


There are Giants in the Land . . .
A great shadow over the land threatens to overwhelm not only the people but a thousand years of Giant service and perhaps the Giants themselves.
The future of the land depends on three young prodigals and an aging hero. Their personal struggles must be set aside, for they are the land’s only true hope.
Book Two of the Giants Trilogy follows Thomas, as a much older man now serving as the Land’s Forest Ward, and two of his grandchildren (seventeen-year-old Tommy and thirteen-year-old Rose). They are unexpectedly caught up in a struggle for the survival of their people and their way of life. A sudden tragic change shocks them from a complacent and distracted life. Thomas, Tommy, and a band of lost prodigals are placed on a dangerous path toward destiny or destruction. Though they are unprepared, they are all that stands between hope for the future and loss of all they hold dear.
