After he thwarted the Vermian ruler Odoursin's plans to wipe out humans on earth, Sam Palmer thought he could relax. But four years later, Sam and Skipper are called upon once again to help their friends in Aurobon fight Odoursin and what might be the fiercest insect army imaginable, including robber flies so vicious they all but annihilate the Rebellion's squadron of fighter wasps. Their mission becomes heart-stoppingly urgent when they discover that Odoursin is plotting to destroy humankind, this time by using the President of the United States as a pawn. An action-packed adventure of good versus evil, wisdom and preservation versus greed, and bursting with danger, heroism and ferocious insects, this is the explosive sequel readers have been waiting for.

About the Author:

Steve Voake is a former headmaster of a boy's school in Somerset, England, and has been featured in People magazine for his fundraising efforts following the December 2004 tsunami.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—This sequel to The Dreamwalker's Child (Bloomsbury, 2006) is packed with action. Sam Palmer has returned to Aurobon, not remembering the four intervening years on Earth. Skipper, believed dead, also reappears. In the meantime, Vermia has taken over the city of Vahlzi, and Captain Firebrand and other Vahlzians have fled into the mountains to form a secret resistance force. Of course, Sam and Skipper are needed again to save the day, but will they thwart Emperor Odoursin's evil plan to kill all humans back on Earth? Web of Fire is every bit as wild a ride as its predecessor. Reluctant readers are likely to get hooked by the action and the fascinating descriptions (and occasional pen-and-ink illustrations) of the gigantic insects used as aircraft in Aurobon. The climactic scene in the White House is a little flat, but the finale makes up for it. Boys will relate to Sam and girls will find a heroine in Skipper. While reading the first book will add to the enjoyment and understanding of this title, it's not strictly necessary. A high-flying sci-fi/fantasy/adventure.—Nancy Kunz, Tuckahoe Public Library, NY
