Against the Tide, Hardback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The fifth in the fantasy series about children and their spirit animals fighting to save their kingdom.

Four children separated by vast distances all undergo the same ritual, watched by cloaked strangers.

Four flashes of light erupt, and from them emerge the unmistakable shapes of incredible beasts - a wolf, a leopard, a panda, a falcon.

Suddenly the paths of these children - and the world - have been changed for ever.

Enter the world of Erdas, where every child who comes of age must discover if they have a spirit animal, a rare bond between human and beast that bestows great powers to both.

A dark force has risen from distant and long-forgotten lands, and has begun an onslaught that will ravage the world.

Part engrossing book series, part action role-playing game - discover your spirit animal and join the adventure.

Review by

In Against the Tide, the struggle of the Greencloaks against The Devourer continues. The young warriors must meet Mulop, the great octopus and receive his amulet. Getting to him requires dangerous trips to two islands. How do The Conquerors always know what they are doing? Is there a mole in their small group? Who is the mole? That' may be the greatest surprise of all. Looking forward to the next installation, I will continue to recommend this series to elementary students.
