Blog Tour -- Return of the Mystic Gray


Return of the Mystic Gray
by Steve Westover

Return of the Mystic Gray: Crater Lake

Released April 9th, 2013
Cedar Fort Publishing

Ethan and his friends are back in a brand-new adventure! With inherited powers they don't understand and can't quite control, they head back to Crater Lake to rescue their friend Jacob, train for an epic battle, and join forces with a powerful ally---the Mystic Gray. Filled with action, adventure, and mystery, this book is a thrilling addition to the Crater Lake series!

Like its predecessor, “Return of the Mystic Gray” is set at Oregon's pristine Crater Lake and follows the exploits of Ethan, a pudgy and reluctant hero, and his band of misfit friends who are beginning to realize that their last Crater Lake adventure left them with inherited powers they don’t understand and can’t quite control. Though the kids live in different parts of the country, they are all drawn back to Crater Lake to resume their battle with the evil Chief Llao and hopefully find their lost friend, Jacob.

A year ago I posted a review of Steve's first book, Crater Lake, here. I have to echo those thoughts a little now, because book 2 is just as good. Like Crater Lake, Return of the Mystic Gray once again combines courage, magic, friendship, and teamwork, while still maintaining the wilderness adventure, Native American folklore, and local legend that I loved the first time around. These books are ideal for middle grade mystery/adventure lovers. I highly recommend them BOTH!

 “Growing up in Oregon, I loved camping in the mountains with my fellow Scouts,” said Westover. “I even camped in the snow, cross-country skiing into camp and building snow caves. Many of those experiences inspired this book. Unlike the warm summer adventure the kids had in Book 1, they are now at Crater Lake in the dead of winter with miles of snow and frozen landscape. It’s beautiful, but treacherous.”

This almost reminds me of the second X-men movie. Maybe it's the lake.

Love the combination of magic and Native American folklore.
