The Trickster's Totem

Life has returned to normal for fourteen year old Evan and his older sister Claire That is until Dunkle a clever but stinky little imp pays an unexpected visit to their school He has come to take the siblings back to Sagaas the mythical realm of the gods Once again a Relic from the ancient Mysticus Orb has fallen into the wrong hands Only Evan and Claire with their uniue mystical abiliti. This book is a middle grades book and recommended for those who enjoyed the Percy Jackson seriesThis novel takes Evan and Claire into another area of Sagaas and one which I can connect to due to my heritage and than average interest in the Spirit World In this territory of Sagaas Evan and Claire meet a tribe and the chief s son Chayton ends up aiding them in their new journey It seems that someone has released Mica the Trickster to wreak havoc on the land Mica goes beyond his usual tricks and is now destroying things and hurting peopleMica is after the Trickster Totem and ends up either running away from Evan s band or stalking them unknowingly The tricky thing about Mica is that he can shapeshift and he uses that to his advantage and tricks Evan s groupIn the first book Claire and Evan learned they both had a special power made stronger when in Sagaas but in this book they discover they both have their own totem animalsand can transform into them Evan s was easy for me to figure out but I had no idea what Claire s totem would be This is an element of Native American culture and in the beginning Chayton s tribe members relay that Evan would discover his totem through his journeyMica leads the Band of Unlikely Heroes which includes Evan Claire Dunkle Chayton the Trickster Totem protector and dragon Kehl and the mermaid Amadahy through all manner of danger and obstacles throughout the land Evan keeps running off on side missions always with one other band member so the group decides to shackle him to somebody with a titanium band forcing him to stay with the groupThey end up stuck with the Pains small fairies who wish to keep them captive Later they do get captured sentenced and imprisoned by the C iatos a group of robotic animals that force workers to mine cochinay a powerful but dangerous substance I did not foresee a good outcome of that situation but in the end the C iatos come to Evan s aidEvan and the group feel betrayed when they confront a member because of one of Evan s dreams The very person who released the Trickster was walking among them the entire time Later it is revealed that a mysterious man appeared in the dreams of three people Evan the Trickster and the traitor who is later redeemed and pardoned by the group but Evan discovers who the man is at the last possible moment and the Trickster reveals that all of their journey throughout the Spirit World was a cover up for the mysterious man a powerful greedy and traitorous immortal who has somehow managed to be set free from his imprisonment due to his hand in the Avarice WarI adored this book I can t say why exactly because I can t uite place my finger on it but I know that the Native American aspect added to my enjoyment and ability to connect with this book Chayton Claire and later Evan all have the ability to transform into their totem animals Plus there are dragonsIn this book there is some downtime during different aspects of their journey to recapture Mica and the Trickster s Totem but in those times I saw character development in Evan Claire and Dunkle The new members of the band I felt were slightly restricted and through Evan and Claire s reactions to the newbies I felt one was immediately trusted and one was immediately held in slight suspicion and the third was just forced upon them and I felt that their reactions to these characters influenced my reactions and interpretations of these characters even though as readers we knew nothing about themI felt the world building in this novel took a backseat to the adventure whereas in the first book I think there was an even mixture of both However this was a fast paced novel and I feel there will be much that comes to light in the next book as there were some interesting tidbits that came to light at the end of this bookHowever HB Bolton I had my eye on you From the very beginning of this book or I should say upon entering the Spirit World and all of the following events that transpire I could not help but notice that Mica was either one step ahead or one step behind Evan and his groupand I got the distinct feeling that it was in some way a wild goose chase In the end Mica reveals just that and what his wild goose chase was covering upwhich is the premise of the third book and I know without a doubt that this third book is going to be a level above the first two books which are each extraordinary in their own realms of SagaasAlso in this novel Bolton includes a listing of important characters and terms at the back of the novel at least for ebook format and many of the names or terms are a Native American translation such as Chayton in Sioux means falcon and cochinay in Apache means yellow thunder To top off her reference guide Bolton has included a listing of totems and their meanings which is a wonderful feature and addition to the book AND yes let me brag some about this book AND Bolton has also included a short self guide to discover your totem I can see this book being taught in language arts and the totem guide would be a wonderful addition to include in instruction and research

H.B. Bolton ↠ 1 REVIEW

Es can help find itThrough the power of the Trickster’s Totem a coyote trickster has escaped His laughter echoes throughout the realm as he spreads mischief and mayhem He burns an entire crop of popcorn carves his grinning image into sacred artifacts and things really get interesting when he shape shifts into Evan’s friendsClaire and Evan must capture the Trickster retrieve the Totem. Background Evan and Clare are at it again only this time the adventure was not because of their mistake The Trickster s Totem was stolen and they have been summoned to help get it back and put Mica the Trickster back in his prison In this installment the siblings are in the land of the Native Americans and must find Mica before he tricks his way through all of the villages in the spirit worldReview I would like to start this review by saying that if you have not read book 1 that is perfectly fine you may be a little confused about the siblings at first but the story jumps right in ad you are enveloped in their journey Just like The Serpent s Ring The Trickster s Totem is a fast paced enticing adventure following the Jones siblings I found that Evan since the first book has become cocky and a bit of a jerk Knowing he has powers that no one else possesses but not being able to share his awesomeness has made him a bit bitter at home and for the beginning of the book Clare on the other hand has seemingly taken a turn a little less flirty and obsessed with looks a little not much though and focuses herself on the task at hand I found that The Trickster s Totem did have character development than book one because the characters really are growing up and finding themselves and since they are in this spirit world the people there are helping them with this The story was again very captivating in this book the Trickster is both entertaining as well as a menace and the twist and turns kept me reading and wanting to find out what happened next I felt this plot moved a lot faster than the first book but then again it may just be that I know the characters and the obstacles they are bound to face Another great MG read for everyone I found this series to be similar to the Percy Jackson series gods goddesses myth journeying troops all that jazz
