Talia and the Capture of Wrath by C.J. Quinn

This was an interesting read that is geared toward middle grade children. I liked the basic idea of the book but it could be a little preachy about the environment. This is a fantasy story that had some good characters. The human boys were all very good children. I liked the explanation for all the different animals but I had some trouble with how the animals and others talked. It sometimes seemed a little stilted. I do hope to read the next book in the series because I need to know what happens to all the animals and humans in both universes. I received a copy of this book from Smith publicity for a fair and honest opinion.

“Talia and the Capture of Wrath” invites young readers to join the four Tobiah brothers as they step through the portal between our world and the magical land of Talia. When Wyatt Tobiah, the youngest brother, sees a shadowy figure beckoning him through a mirror in the Jenkin’s manor, near his family’s summer home, he doesn’t realize that the figure is his deceased mother. Now an angel with beautiful feathered wings, she invites her sons to step through the portal located in the mirror and join her in the land of Talia. Once the boys are safely on the other side, their mother explains to them that Wyatt is the “Chosen One”-the last hope for saving planet Earth from the destruction wrought on it by careless humans. Now Wyatt, with the help of his brothers and many other extraordinary friends, must journey through fantastical lands to capture wrath, one of the seven deadly sins. He is then to give it to the Tree of Existence as an offering in return for help from the Tree. But with evil forces seeking to thwart Wyatt at every turn, will he survive his mission? Or will all of Earth be destroyed?
