[Book Review] Skor the Winged Stallion (Beast Quest, #14) by Adam Blade

As Tom and Elenna navigate the horrid terrain of Gorgonia, they quickly realize that nothing is what it seems to be. Each step brings them to another dangerous encounter.

But Tom won't give up. Not when Epos the Winged Flame is being held captive somewhere in the Dark Realm and Malvel has created a wicked winged Beast of his own. With the help of his friends, Tom is determined to chase down the evil wizard and return all of the good Beasts back to Avantia.

There's nothing new to say here, really. Skor the Winged Stallion is the second Beast Quest: The Dark Realm book, and it's essentially the same as every Beast Quest book that's come before it. It's as formulaic and predictable as ever. It's the same general plot with Skor the Winged Stallion taking the Beast role and the token Tom gets at the end being an emerald that heals broken bones. (Presumably they'll use it once and then never again, like all the rest of their super duper power-ups.)

The only thing of importance that I can say is that this one references Vedra and Krimon: Twin Beasts of Avantia, and a particular scene of chapter six will make no sense if you haven't read that book... which, since the series guide in the back of the book offers no indication of Vedra and Krimon's existence or where it should be in the chronology, is quite likely.

Beyond that, I'm just really not amused with this series, and I'm looking forward to being finished with it.
