Review: Adventure, mysteries, and brain-washing: these topics all come together in Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire. This is the second book in the Hunter Brown series written by Allan Miller and Christopher Miller - brothers. This action-packed book has Hunter Brown and his new friends Trista and Rob visiting different worlds and fighting the deathly Shadow. Will they defeat them or fail their quest?

Since Hunter’s first trip from Solondria nothing has gone his way. His friends desert him and things are becoming stranger and stranger. The author puts him back at school where Hunter believes he is being followed by the Shadow. But when he returns to Solondria, with his new friends, Trista and Rob, the Resistance is becoming weak. Hunter becomes the carrier of the Flame and is led on a new quest. He needs to find the seven that are marked by the Flame. Xaul an enemy is trying to stop them and threatens to destroy the Resistance. What will happen to Hunter Brown? Can he finish his quest or will it be too late?

Action-packed and fun to read is the second book of the Hunter Brown series. It was a great sequel to Hunter Brown and the Secret of the Shadow. I wanted to just keep reading it. The Miller brothers did a great job at keeping me interested. I loved all the action and how you never knew what would happen next; for example, when Hunter wanted to save Hope, but didn’t because she told him not to. Hunter Brown was an interesting character who changed a lot through the book. I liked how he never limited himself to doing one thing; he always found different ways. This book is great for people who love adventure. The settings always changed and were never boring. Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire is the most exciting book I have read-so far. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
