This review is from: Candy Wars II: Sweet Revenge (Kindle Edition)

My daughter is a big fan of Candy Wars: The Tooth Fairies vs The Candy King so when I told her this one had come in from the author for review, I am pretty sure the entire state of Texas heard her squeal. I couldn’t get it on her kindle fast enough. I was excited too. Candy Wars was one of my fave kiddo books from last year. Adventurous fun with a whole lot of heart.

So, my 8-year-old daughter and I read this one at the same time. I would be sitting there reading and she’d come over and say “OMG, Mom! It’s brown sugar!” or “The archers are back!!!!” or something like that. I don’t want to spoil it, but honestly, it was a lot of fun with some of the characters we came to know and love in the first book and new ones that we love – and love to hate.

I won’t mince words… the author can write. How on earth he’s not been picked up and published traditionally, I’ll never know. The level of fun in this series is over the top. It’s a great age group to target, they are still into magic and fantasy and fun. It’s funny because my 10-year-old, who refused to read it at first, is now reading it from hearing my daughter and I talk about it – so is my husband. To me, this is important… it’s a story that we both enjoyed. I didn’t feel like it was dumbed down for me and she didn’t feel like it was over her head. It really gave us a good bond to be able to talk about it and to have both really completely enjoyed it.

I recommend this book for kids – and adults alike. You don’t have to have read the first one, but I would tell you to go ahead and get ’em both. They are also available as a set called Candy Wars I and II: The Sugar Hit.
