Luke Rayburn has spent summer vacation running up and down sandy beaches with his family. He’s explored hidden coves, learned how to write invisible letters, and even met an ocean nymph. But his friends write to tell him of strange happenings in Countryside and he’s anxious to get back.
When Luke returns, he finds that much has changed. Mischievous gnomes are spreading chaos across the valley, a lone wolf haunts the forests, and Mayeem, one of Luke’s new teachers, just happens to be a mermaid. And then there’s the hunter, a man with golden eyes, only part of a soul and the belief that Luke has hidden something he wants—something he’s willing to destroy Countryside in order to get.
Hounded by blackhearted men and soulless creatures and with darkness luring him in, Luke must gather his wits and ferret out his true friends. But as he draws close to finding what it is the hunter seeks, he will learn that there is more at stake than he understands. He’ll learn that it’s not the hunter he should be afraid of and that, once done, some things cannot be undone.

As with the first book; I was sent The Tears of Adina by the author for an honest review and I'm happy to say I loved this book. Maybe more than the first. After the ending of the last book I was eager to dive straight back in.
The story continues with Luke and the world of Countryside that has been so fantastically created by the author. It's easy to jump straight back into this world; with more interesting twists and plots than ever.
Luke is as adventurous as ever; finding himself in various situations and of course, at times in danger. He's a kid like any other; despite being told to stay out of trouble he finds himself right in the middle of it.
The story is gripping and exciting. It's a perfect book for children to enjoy with their families. A world full of fantasy and adventure... what's not to love?
If you haven't already please check out these books- yes they can be considered for younger readers than myself but the pure joy I got from reading these books makes me highly recommend them. It's a great getaway for kids and adults alike.
Let me know your thoughts below and if you've checked out the amazing world of Countryside.
