How do you fight fire without fire?
When a freak storm uncovers the entrance to a mysterious underground chamber, Ivy and Martin expect to find treasure. But what they discover is even more valuable: a barrow full of sleeping spriggans, magically preserved for centuries. With the vengeful piskey queen Betony determined to capture Ivy and her followers, the secret hideaway could be key to both their peoples’ survival.
But the piskeys and spriggans are ancient enemies, and when Ivy tries to make peace her own followers threaten to turn against her. Plagued by treachery, betrayal and desertion on every side, Ivy must find a way to unite the magical folk of Cornwall–or doom herself, Martin and everyone she loves to death at Betony’s hand.
Yet without the legendary fire-wielding power that marks a true piskey queen, can Ivy convince her people to believe?

Guest Review from Joni Truex
Torch by R.J. Anderson is the third novel in The Flight and Flame Trilogy. A fantasy novel, this book
continues the story found in Swift, the first story and Nomad, the second story. The characters are delightful and intriguing. The plot is interesting. This book is easy to read. The story depicts the struggles between good and evil. Jealousy, fear, love, hope, and forgiveness are included, too. Another thing covered is how our actions affect our futures. The author has a talent for making the unbelievable seem real. This is not typically a genre I read. I did enjoy this book.
I would recommend this book (and series) for teens, young teens, tweens and adults. This book
was provided through Celebrate Lit, the publisher and the author for my review. The opinions expressed are my own thoughts.
