Book Review: The Spectraland Saga 2: The Mystery of the Moonfire by Brian Tashima

Back in September 2012, I reviewed book one of the Spectraland Saga, The Secret of the Songshell and now, after about 3 years, the sequel is finally out and I'm pleased to bring you a review of it. 

The Spectraland Saga is a young adult series by Brian Tashima The books are probably aimed at the better readers in the young adult market as they're about 300 pages each. The genre is fantasy and the reason why they're being reviewed here is because they contain a main character with Asperger's syndrome (in fact, it's quite likely that they contain two main characters with Asperger's syndrome). 

The Mystery of the Moonfire starts about six months after the end of “Songshell” and it more or less relies on a good knowledge of Spectraland. If it's been a while since you read the first book, you might want to re-read it before venturing further.  If you haven't read the first book at all, I think it's a pre-requisite. 

The second book in the saga feels longer…
