Freedom Fire (Dactyl Hill Squad #2)

We rated this book:


Magdalys and her friends fly south on pteroback down to Tennessee where the Civil War awaits. As soon as General Sheridan finds out about Magdalys’s dinowrangling abilities, he begs her to use her powers to help the Union. But after one of her friends betrays her, and she strays from finding her brother Montez, who was injured. Magdalys is not sure she wants to be part of the war anymore. Can she find her brother and still help the Union?

This is the second book in a thrilling series, and ends at a cliffhanger, so I hope there will be more. I recommend you read them in order because it may be confusing. Some things, like Mag-D, her friends, and the fact that dinosaurs were alive at the time of the Civil War, are made up. But most of the people and events are real. I do not think younger kids should read this book, because there is so much violence and some death. But older kids would like it because it’s educational and about dinosaurs! If you like learning history the fun way, find the nearest bookstore.
