Do you have young reader in your life? Struggling finding a holiday gift for them? How about a book? Or several books? I like to gift books to my nephews because it’s a great way to get them to try out different writers or genres they probably wouldn’t pick out for themselves. And it also helps improve their reading skills and possibly help them grow as an individual. Plus it’s not another toy they will play with for 5 minutes and then be bored with or forget about by breakfast. A book will bring hours of enjoyment. Giants in the Land, written by Clark Rich Burbidge, recently released the third and final installment, The Cavern of Promise, in it’s trilogy.
We catch up with Thomas as he is trapped in Westland which is ruled by an evil king. Escaping does not appear to be a possibility. And survival is not looking so great either. Throughout the book Thomas meets each obstacle with tenacity and keeps forging ahead. He has goals. He needs to save himself, he has to bridge the gap of understanding between the generations, repair the relationships between the townsfolk and the giants and help the townsfolk take the town back from the evil king and turn it around. Can he do it? Yes. Is it a struggle? Yes.
I have not read the first two books but I was still able to enjoy and understand the third book in the trilogy. But after reading The Cavern of Promise I want to invest in the other two books; The Way of Things and The Prodigals. Not only are these books engaging and entertaining but they also teach values to the reader. It provokes young minds to think about more than just themselves. The illustrations throughout the book help to engage the reader and give them insight as to what the characters look like. I feel that helps a young reader have a clearer picture in their minds as they are reading the story.
You can find Giants in the Land Book Three : The Cavern of Promise at Amazon or your local book store. His other two book are also available for the Holidays. You can also connect with Clark Rich Burbidge on Facebook to keep up on his latest work.
