{Review} Battle for Cascadia by Kenneth G. Bennett

Battle for Cascadia by Kenneth G. Bennett Paperback, 212 pages Expected publication: December 10th 2011 by CreateSpace  Age group: Young YA Source: Blog Tour Series: Gaia Wars #2 Summary(from Goodreads) When Warren Wilkes, age 13, stumbles upon a mysterious relic deep in the Cascade Mountains (The Gaia Wars) wonder reigns. Brimming with secrets and sentient energy, the relic leads Warren to a fantastic chamber, and to shocking revelations about his identity. Now wonder has turned to dread. A forgotten terror– a demon that knows Warren better than he knows himself– has risen again and is gathering power with a singularly evil goal in mind: to capture and enslave the wild spirit of the Earth itself. Warren must fight or see all that he cherishes destroyed.
