About The Book
Title: Snake in the Grass: Hero’s Sword Vol. 4
Author: M.E. Sutton
Genre: Middle Grade, Adventure, Fantasy
Things are getting interesting at Tanner Middle School. The only official candidate for student council president is Jaycee’s nemesis, Trina Poppelman. Plus there’s a new girl in school. At first glance, she looks like she’d fit right in with the cheerleaders, but Jaycee senses something different about her.
Things are getting interesting in Mallory, too. Lady Starla is expecting an Imperial envoy to discuss new taxes. She plans to oppose the measure and asks Lyla to stand by her side in a show of support. However, when the envoy goes missing, the situation becomes a lot more serious than a proposed tax increase.
In this fourth installment of the Hero’s Sword series, Lyla and Roger hit the road to find a missing envoy before Starla pays the ultimate price for his disappearance. Along the way, Jaycee learns that winning isn’t always the end-game result.
Mary Sutton has been making up stories, and creating her own endings for other people’s stories, for as long as she can remember. After ten years, she decided that making things up was far more satisfying than writing software manuals, and took the jump into fiction.
She writes the HERO’S SWORD middle-grade fantasy series as M.E. Sutton and finds a lot of inspiration in the lives of her own kids. A lifelong mystery fan, she also writes crime fiction, including THE LAUREL HIGHLANDS MYSTERIES, under the pen name Liz Milliron. Her short fiction has been published at Uppagus.com, Mystericale.com (Fall 2013), and in LUCKY CHARMS: 12 CRIME TALES (December 2013).
Charming book with a great message. While I have not read the other books in the series, it was fairly easy to pick up the main idea and follow along with the story. Reading the whole series would have been beneficial but I was able to follow along without much problem.
The basic premise is that a girl jumps into a video game world set around the time of Knights and castles and becomes the champion of the region. In this story she get called to the realm to provide emotional and psychological strength to the ruler. However thing unravel quickly leading her to be needed in her role of champion.
This was a quick read for me and is perfect for the younger reader, upper elementary school and middle school readers. The story also talks about standing up for those who cannot or will not stand up for themselves and putting yourself out there to take a chance. I love the message and the great story that presents it.
I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
