Podkin, Pook, and Paz survived the battle against the Gorm, and are now seemingly safe in Dark Hollow, a hidden warren. Curiosity, boredom, and a feeling of uselessness get the better of Podkin, and he stumbles upon another magical gift, one that can help them defeat the Gorm instead of hiding from them. Such is the opening premise of The Gift Of Dark Hollow, the second book in the Longburrow series by Kieran Larwood.
A follow-up to Podkin One-Ear, this new novel is adorable, and the middle school set will get caught up in the second adventure of Podkin and his siblings, which is even better than the first. It is really exciting as we get the feeling that the Bard is involved in this world, yet we can wait for a slow reveal.
This is a great series to start your adolescents on the love road to reading!
The Longburrow series is Middle-earth for middle graders as readers are drawn deeper and deeper into the story of the young rabbit Podkin One-Ear fighting to save his land from evil.
Hiding with fellow refugees, Podkin, Paz, and Pook are temporarily safe in Dark Hollow Warren. But their enemies—the evil Gorm—still search for them. The rabbits’ only hope may be to locate twelve magical Gifts and use them to defeat the Gorm. The fate of all rabbitkind is at stake, and danger lurks at every turn. It will take all the siblings’ courage and ingenuity to find the Gifts, battle the Gorm, and stay alive. Action and intrigue infuse the second installment of a series that shows that anyone—even little rabbits—can do great things.
