How do you fight fire without fire?
When a freak storm uncovers the entrance to a mysterious underground chamber, Ivy and Martin expect to find treasure. But what they discover is even more valuable: a barrow full of sleeping spriggans, magically preserved for centuries. With the vengeful piskey queen Betony determined to capture Ivy and her followers, the secret hideaway could be key to both their peoples’ survival.
But the piskeys and spriggans are ancient enemies, and when Ivy tries to make peace her own followers threaten to turn against her. Plagued by treachery, betrayal and desertion on every side, Ivy must find a way to unite the magical folk of Cornwall–or doom herself, Martin and everyone she loves to death at Betony’s hand.
Yet without the legendary fire-wielding power that marks a true piskey queen, can Ivy convince her people to believe?

Torch concludes The Flight and Flame Trilogy by RJ Anderson. I have had the pleasure of reading and enjoying the first two books of the series, Swift and Nomad. Even though they are part of a series, I believe they can be read as stand alones. I thought this was a great read and I believe this one is probably my favorite of the three. I enjoyed the action and adventure. It was fun and entertaining to read. I had no problem reading the whole book in one sitting. It was great.
I am giving Torch five stars. I recommend it for readers between the ages of ten and fourteen and for those who enjoy fantasy and science fiction. I look forward to reading more like this from RJ Anderson in the future.
I received Torch from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
