"Show me my way! Tell me what Iím to do!Ē

But no answer came. Instead, the light and the heat from within the Garden flowed on through the silver screen, melting his body into helplessness. The one terrible word echoed in his brain, mocking his hopes.

Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!

After stopping a plot to destroy the island of Anacrea, Seeker, Morning Star, and Wildman join a group of people with unique abilities. The group is called the Noble Warriors, people who protect others and keep the peace. When a warlord who wants control over everything marches into their land, theyíve got to find a way to stop him and restore peace to their home.

Jango is the second book in the Noble Warriors trilogy. I liked the first book, Seeker, so much that I couldnít wait to get my hands on this one. Itís filled with such suspense and excitement that I didnít want to put it down. The world that it takes place in is unique to any book Iíve ever read before: warriors that can control a personís will by looking them in the eye, liquid that explodes when it reacts with the air, and old people called Savanters that suck out a personís life-force for immortality. The author writes the book with such vivid description that you can picture it all in your head. I canít wait to read the third book in the trilogy, Noman.

I give Jango 5 unique stars and would recommend this book to kids 12 and up because there is some violence. I think it would be great for those who liked Lord Of The Rings.
