The Five Feathers (The Filey Chronicles, Book 2) by Janet Blackwell: #BookReview.

The second book in the proposed trilogy of The Filey Chronicles continues the story begun in The Bridge and the Butterflies, which I read and reviewed after being introduced to the series by a writing friend.
The story carries on the fast-moving, emotionally challenging trip of adventure combined with multiple life questions. Meg, the main player, is understandably confused both because of her youth but also by the extraordinary circumstances a chance discovery has brought her way. As with the first book, the story is populated by a diverse cast of characters, some good, some evil, some merely peculiar, which may be due to the fact they are aliens, of course! All, however, are credible, and it is easy to empathise with Meg and the other main players.
It is evident that a wide and occasionally wild imagination has developed this story, but that’s not to say it strays into the impossible. The events and characters involved are all only too believable. Another very good read.
Addendum: Shortly after composing this review, I was saddened to learn that the author recently died. The third book remains unwritten. I leave you, as a reader, to decide whether that will affect your decision to read this second in the series, which ends on a cliff-hanger!
