Venom and Song-Christopher Hopper & Wayne Thomas Batson

Wayne Thomas Batson-Christopher Hopper  
(For my full review of Venom and Song you can go here.)

I would suggest to anyone planning to read Venom and Song to first read Curse of the Spider King.
Venom and Song expands on the glimpses we saw of Allyra in the first book in the series. 
Now in the strange realm of Allyra, the Seven young lords confront a traitor in their midst, a creature-infested forest, teenage fears and doubts, inexplicable mysteries and the Spider King himself.

I noticed the writing flawed at the beginning.  There were a few viewpoint shifts within scenes and the dialogue tags were off from the beginning to the end of the book.  That doesn’t matter much to me, even though I do notice it.  The book’s plot was amazing.  I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the world of Allyra and its history.  There were a few typos that I found amusing, but didn’t bother me at all.  Such as a time when one of the characters ‘ased’ a question.  Of course, it was mean to be ‘asked’.
The plot kept me on my toes and kept me turning the page and the ending was very satisfying, though it made me quite sad.
All-in-all I rate the book a eight out of ten.
