Over the river and through the woods on another Quest he reluctantly goes!
Thirteen-year-old Toby Baxter can’t wait to pull out his sled and enjoy the massive snowfall. But his winter break is interrupted when a frightening warning draws him once again through his closet into RiverHome. The magical land from his last visit is dying. Its life force—the Sword—has been taken by the trolls, threatening to destroy the river elves and their allies.
Making matters worse, his arch nemesis, Clygon, the leader of the trolls, is ready and waiting for him, looking for a rematch.
As Toby faces this new danger, he will again be challenged with the question: How will you use your power? Will he choose to be WISE or will he give into his fears?
A short while ago I read and reviewed a marvelous book called The Adventures of Toby Baxter: The River Elf, The Giant, And The Closet which is written by the equally remarkable author Tim Wright. The story is a bewitching one full of breathtaking events that will have the reader’s mind full of wonder. The story was so radiant that upon finishing it, I immediately wanted to read book two The Adventures of Toby Baxter: Riverhome for the Holidays, and wow what a stellar sequel book lovers!
Before I let you lovely readers know more about Riverhome for the Holidays, I think it is only right that I share more about the first book! So I have attached a snippet of my review that will introduce you to this excellent series.
“The reader in The River Elf, The Giant, And The Closet will be introduced to the star and protagonist of the book, Toby Baxter, a boy who is on the cusp of turning thirteen and this is something Toby is looking forward to! However, his life changes drastically when a stranger makes himself known to Toby and asks him for his help. Toby, although reluctant, loves superheroes and decides to be brave and take the leap and when he does, he is thrust into a magical world where his life will be forever changed. The reader will follow Toby as he finds himself having to grow up quickly in this strange and unfamiliar world in which elves and trolls are at war with each other and Toby is being called the hero! Toby thus must embark on a quest to be a warrior and be the hero the realm needs, while growing into teenage hood.”
Now, how incredible does The River Elf, The Giant, And The Closet sound?! Riverhome for the Holidays is a continuation of the story in The River Elf, The Giant, And The Closet which will reunite us with our protagonist Toby Baxter! In Riverhome for the Holidays, the reader will embark on another quest as Toby must save the magical land he last visited as its lands are dying after its life force – the sword is stolen by the trolls with disastrous consequences.

But The River Elf, The Giant, And The Closet is the first book in the series so of course, it features heavily on plot and world development which I must add was dazzling!
My point is that in Riverhome for the Holidays the world and the characters are already established by the incredible author Tim Wright, so now Wright has free reign, he can expand on the book even more and go crazy with plot ideas and characters and that is why I feel that I loved The Adventures of Toby Baxter: Riverhome for the Holidays just that bit more because the world is established and the journey thrilling!
