In Neworld Papers: The Warriors' Tale (Volume 2) by KB Shaw, Fallon is this generation's Indiana Jones, but with more whimsical twists and turns in his adventures than ever before. Our hero and his friends will journey throughout Neworld, but Fallon has reached a dilemma. He has weapons hidden away. Revealing them could mean salvation. Or, just as equally, it could mean destruction.

I feel I missed a lot while reading this coming of age tale of heroism and adventure because I never read the first book. This Neworld novel, however, has definitely piqued my interest and I will need to go back to the first novel for more of Fallon. And that's also one of Shaw's strengths: the ability to develop a character that readers of all ages can admire and root for. The literary world is flooded with teen girls leading the fight. And that's perfectly fine, but a male lead is a nice change of pace that we need more often.

Shaw has such skill in character creation that even jumping into the series at book two, I knew enough about Fallon to connect with him and accept him, flaws and all. There are very few cases where this has happened for me before and the last time was while reading a James Patterson bestseller! I believe that if I go back, I'll find this series is a future bestseller in disguise that children, teens, and adults will devour eagerly. Even if it's not your usual genre, I recommend taking a chance. I think you may be pleasantly surprised.

Neworld Papers: The Warriors' Tale, Volume Two by author KB Shaw is a solid second book in what, by all accounts, is a very promising series of young adult science fiction, continuing the story of the Movement as they proceed to Neworld and make decisions that might have long lasting effects for their people and Neworld as a whole. Fallon, the Movement's historian, has pulled away from the group, wary of what might happen if he discloses the information that there is a cache of weapons in the armory. As others prepare to spread the historian's message throughout Neworld, it appears likely that much could change for all involved. Will Neworld survive the decisions made by Fallon and the Movement? Only time, and Neworld Papers: The Warriors' Tale, Volume Two will tell!

Author KB Shaw has done a really good job in providing his eager readers with a follow up book that will not disappoint them. Neworld Papers: The Warriors' Tale, Volume Two is a worthy read, one filled with adventure, excitement, and thought provoking details that will keep readers turning the pages and hungry for more. Many young adult readers would enjoy this book, but I feel that many adult lovers of science fiction should also give this book a chance. I can confidently give this book a very high recommendation, and hope that the next installment of this series is already in the works. It appears that author KB Shaw has a real winner on his hands with the Neworld series, and I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

On the other hand, those very weapons could help to save his people. What will Fallon do? You'll need to read the book to find out!
