The Trickster's Totem (Relics of Mysticus Book 2)
H.B. Bolton, author
Life has returned to normal for fourteen-year-old Evan and his older sister, Claire. That is until Dunkle, a clever but stinky little imp, pays an unexpected visit to their school. He has come to take the siblings back to Sagaas, the mythical realm of the gods. Once again, a Relic from the ancient Mysticus Orb has fallen into the wrong hands. Only Evan and Claire, with their unique mystical abilities, can help find it. Through the power of the Trickster’s Totem, a coyote trickster has escaped. His laughter echoes throughout the realm, as he spreads mischief and mayhem. He burns an entire crop of popcorn, carves his grinning image into sacred artifacts, and things really get interesting when he shape-shifts into Evan’s friends. Claire and Evan must capture the Trickster, retrieve the Totem, and be careful not to become sidetracked by robotic Steampunk animals, “sweet” pixie-like Pains, and a problematic mermaid … all while dodging Mothman-like aces. Most surprising, Evan discovers the true reason dragons exist in the Native American Spirit World.

H. B. Bolton's "The Trickster's Totem" had me from the first page. Her characters, descriptions, and dialogue were all very well done. I liked the Native American references in this novel and the glossary in the back was a nice addition so that readers will see that so much of this is based on Native American beliefs and languages. The story was exciting and never left me wanting to skip ahead. I would certainly add this novel to my school library. I believe that girls and boys will enjoy this if they are fantasy lovers.

Readers' Favorite

"I decided to read The Relics of Mysticus series to my niece. She can't get enough! We went from reading one chapter at bedtime to her practically begging me to finish the book in one night. It just goes to show you that you've got to keep the target audience in mind. I really liked how Bolton blended a lot of genres into the story. Kids don't usually understand genres yet. They don't go out of their way to try something new. By introducing aspects of other genres, they can see if they like something and discover more genres just by reading books they love."
