Gold Gato, March 15, 2012 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
This sequel to THE BOOK OF THE DUN COW is almost as good as the original, featuring a frightening war between good and evil as represented by Chauntecleer the Rooster and Wyrm. Yes, this is fantasy fiction, but beautifully written and spellbinding at times.

This sequel is darker than the first book, due to Wyrm taking center stage. The reader feels for the Rooster and his bouts of self-doubt. At times it takes on a Homeric tone, one mirroring the same Cold War reality of the 1980s. I certainly identified with each animal and view this book, along with its original, as a true fable for the modern world.

Book Season = Autumn (Wyrm's season)
