Sinopsis:

Shaiala scrambled down the canyon floor...The sight beyond brought her to a halt. Nearly a hundred exhausted, frightened Centaur foals...hobbled and taunted by Two Hoofs. The second book in the Echorium Sequence and a stunning sequel to SONGQUEST, winner of the Branford Boase Award. A wild girl, a horselord prince, half-creatures, the rumoured return of the dreaded Khiz priest, and an awesome challenge to the power of the Singers make the Crystal Mask a breathtaking new adventure which started so brilliantly with the award-winning SONGQUEST. In a world where the slightest whisper can bring down an avalanche, black crystal is destroying the Second Singer's power. It's a race against time, and their own fears, if Renn, the novice Singer and Shaiala with her raw physical strength are to conquer the evil power that has enslaved Half Creatures and Two-Hoof children - a power that can bend minds and steal memory.

Review:

In Crystal Mask, the thrilling, chilling sequel to the award-winning Song Quest, a wild girl, a confused Singer boy from the Isle of Echoes, and a horselord prince join forces to fight the evil force of the fabled masked Khiz priest and his minions. Weeks of travel, fraught with mistrust, avalanche and drowning danger, and a devastating growing understanding of the full diabolical power of Khiz, bring each of these children to the Sunless Valley, where a battle in the black crystal palace will determine the fate of all. Packed with blue gemstones, magical "half creatures," humans who wield power through songs, merlee (mermaids), and breathtaking adventure, this complex fantasy will be tremendously appealing to fans of Katherine Roberts's Echorium sequence. For some readers, the many convoluted subplots and unusual names will be difficult to follow, but the taut narrative will hold the attention of those who are willing to hang on for the ride. (Ages 11 and older) --Emilie Coulter
