Perfect for Fans of animals and magic
The first of the series follows the panther Mez. This one follows Gogi the monkey. Born under a special moon, Gogi has magic in the form of fire. He and his friends must join together to defeat the Ant Queen, especially since Gogi fears his home is her next target.
The Ant Queen is set on destroying the rainforest and is leaving lots of animals dead and homeless. As she creates her army of ants, she's almost become unstoppable, but she knows she needs a select few animals to help complete her mission.
When a meeting is compromised, Gogi and his friends learn there is a traitor among the shadowwalkers, but who? Gogi must draw forward his inner fire to save himself, his friends, and the rainforest.
I love that this story is from the animals POV and that the terminology is appropriate and well thought out. For example, instead of hand, they say paw. I love the twists and turns in this book and that you didn't know who could be trusted and who couldn't. Gogi is loyal to his friends and even though he's still learning his way with his fire, that doesn't stop him from being mentally strong. The destruction of the Ant Queen was interesting because it felt like something humans are doing as well.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this series to fans of animals, adventure, the rainforest, and magic.
