BOOK THREE of the Giant's in the Land Trilogy is Available NOW! #mgbhgg
Giants in the Land is a well written series of books by Clark Rich Burbidge, and they present in a series of 3 stand-alone stories (or as a set) with book three, The Cavern of Promise, the latest in the set to be released, and ready to go!
I had the pleasure of taking a look at these books and, even as a 30 something year old adult these books still have a strong message that no matter who the "giants" are in your own lives (mom, dad, teachers, etc) you can go it alone and survive without them, if one day they were to just up and disappear - as the Giants do at the very beginning of the series (leaving the towns folk that they have helped and lived besides for years) to fend for themselves!
The books follow Thomas, a member of the town abandoned by the giants on whom he used to rely, as the town runs into a panic, with no explanation as to why the giants just suddenly up and left. Thomas is brave enough to go in search of answers, with adventure and moral/spiritual lessons along the way!
In the new book, book 3, and without giving too much away, the story is brought to conclusion with a quest for redemption for the towns-folk and Thomas, personally, along the way. With struggles and obstacles to overcome as the reader is reinforced with the notion that they can survive even the biggest, deepest and darkest of tribulations and come out the other side.
This is an award winning series and well worth a look. I would say this is suited well to a tween and young teen audience, but makes a fast and easy read for adults, too! I found the writing to be clear, concise and, while not completely as in depth as I would prefer, perfect for the younger reader!
You can pick up a copy of the new book, today, at any good book seller, along with the previous editions in the trilogy, too!
