Wow, I can’t believe we talked for 6 hours a couple of days ago. I think we need to talk more often.
Title: The Horn of Moran
Series: Adventurers Wanted; Book 2
Author: M. L. Forman

Recommendation: Highly recommend this series. Great for younger and older readers alike.
This review is going to be brief because there’s not much to say. Probably the worst book in the series, it was still a decent read. The problem is mostly that it’s attempting to setup the rest of the series. So the result is a fairly choppy story. The MC’s development plateaus but we get hints at where it might go.
It kind of felt like a plane being stuck in a holding pattern while the guys on the ground get everything setup because they hadn’t quite expected the plane would actually take off. Nothing wrong with that but the experience isn’t the greatest.
Thankfully the series gets much, much better as it goes on.
