First Lines: It's funny how human beings feel the need to pay respect to the dead by attending a funeral.
Synopsis: Although Nudge hates the red lightning-bolt mushrooms, if he doesn't manage to find their source, he has no chance of reuniting with his soul mate.
Silverbirch: Fall of the Epicenter is the second book in the Silverbirch series and I was very interested to see how Nudge the main character was going to manage now that he'd lost almost everyone he'd cared about.
Robert takes the fantasy up a notch in this book. We not only are dealing with one race outside of the human one but three and it sure makes things interesting. When I first got this book I looked at the front and thought.. "I wonder how this ties in."
The one thing I definitely loved about Nudge was the more he tried to help, the more it seemed to dig himself a bigger hole in the human world.
I'm also glad that we get to meet back up with Chase and Hayley once again but this time things are a little different.
Also for me, I felt that book two didn't have quite as much action as the first one. That was one thing that made book one really awesome. Book two is focused alot more on the finding more mushrooms and working a plan to reunite with his friends. But I must say the glitches along the way make Nudge shine as a main character.
I look forward to were the Silverbirch story ends especially with the way Robert has tied things up at the end of this book.
