Volume 2 of the Spellsinger Series. by. Alan Dean Foster. Last night, this young spellsinger actually encountered an envoy of the Plated Folk. He was here to foment trouble among local human citizens, and according to my young associate he was well disguised. That brought some of the more insipid members of the council wide awake.

Alan Dean Foster is a master of creating alien worlds. The New York Times–bestselling author of more than 110 books, Alan Dean Foster is one of the most prominent writers of modern science fiction and fantasy. Born in New York City in 1946, he studied filmmaking at UCLA, and first found success in 1968 when a horror magazine published one of his short stories. In 1972 he wrote his first novel, The Tar-Aiym Krang, the first in his Pip and Flinx series featuring the Humanx Commonwealth, a universe he has explored in more than twenty-five novels.

Spellsinger (1983) is a fantasy novel by American writer Alan Dean Foster. The book follows the adventures of Jonathan Thomas Meriweather who is transported from our world into a land of talking animals and magic. It is the first in the Spellsinger series.

That's not a critique of The Hour Of The Gate. Foster doesn't fall prey to the 'we can't do that so it's dramatic' bug all that often.

The Spellsinger books, like a lot of the mid-80s fantasy I like so much, rely on a tried-and-true formula that works because Foster is a good writer and can rise above the cliches. That's not a critique of The Hour Of The Gate.

In this new Pip & Flinx thriller, Alan Dean Foster displays the brilliance that has made him one of the brightest lights in science fiction.

Marooned in another universe, a young American musician leads a motley army in battle against an enemy that threatens to destroy their world and ours Jon-Tom just wanted to go home. Trapped in a world where animals speak and magic is real, the American college student yearned for an ordinary dorm-room life. But here his music has magical power—even if he can’t control it—which may be able to save the world from the army of the Plated Folk, whose sinister queen plans on killing and eating every warm-blooded mammal she can get her pincers on and taking over their lands. The great battle is coming, and Jon-Tom, whose posse includes a wizarding turtle, a cowardly bat, and an otter with a filthy mind, must raise an army to fight it. To find allies they must make an impossible journey, across mountains and rivers no one has ever passed before. Survival will be a miracle—but Jon-Tom is no ordinary musician.

This is the second book in the spellsinger series. More properly it is part 2 of the first book in the spellsinger series. It is a direct carry on from Spellsinger and there is no real point in reading it if you haven't read the first book. Alan Dean Foster has created a fantasy world where animals walk on their back legs, talk and wear clothes. They have all the characteristics of humans and humans are a minority.
In this book Jon has to defeat the plated folk as they attempt to take over the world. His weapons are songs which become spells when played on his guitar. He is aided by Clothahump who is a turtle and the world's greatest magician and a cast of characters who amaze and amuse in equal measure.
Alan Dean Foster creates a vivid and exciting world with dangers and pleasures at every turn. The book is fast paced and laced with humour. If you squint hard enough you can see where the guitar in Soul Music came from too. It's a great book but you'll enjoy it more if you've read the first book in the series.

Away down the river. The beautiful river. Where we met strange new life forms and make friends. That is it. Along with the ending, this is just a light hearted adventure where nothing is really on the line. I could not even get mad at the wizard for doing mean things. I would love to see this world done as RPG or cartoon but the writing is kiddy friendly 80s style. I will be holding off on getting the rest of the series unless I get a great deal.

Excellent conclusion to the war between the warm bloods and the insects. Jon-Tom matures and magic abounds although his spells never turn out the way he expects.

The Spellsinger series will not be going down in history as a must-read classic, but it's enjoyable to read over lunch or waiting for a bus. It would be good for a young adult reader, but please note that there are positive references to recreational marijuana use. The Pip & Flinx series is a more appropriate read for 8th-10th graders.

This book disappointed me. The same group from the first book, with Jon-Tom as the lead again, now head into foreign territory to enlist aid from a mythical race.

The book is journey scene after journey scene. There's almost no magic until the very end. And the characters don't learn, change, or do anything but travel until the very end. And it was a mediocre ending.

I'm done with the series.

I have been reading books by Alan Dean Foster for a couple of months now, and I must say his books are very difficult to put down. As soon as I finish reading one, I want to start reading the next one right away. The characters in his books are down right entertaining and likeable, and the premise for his story-line is unique and attention grabbing. He moves from one event to another smoothly without getting too carried away by the minutia (like the later books of the Wheel of Time series did). This book in particular has Foster's characters getting into more and more trouble, while the main character learns more and more about his "talent". You will fall in love with the story, the characters, and find it hard to stop with just one book!

Fantasy lovers old and new...spread some love for this timeless fantasty/science-fiction blend. Alan Dean Foster's worlds are just plain fun.
Alan comes up with some more unique concepts to entertain us all. He also continues to flesh out his world with more species and a nightmare or two. And we get to see the threat that Clothahump called JonTom to help with. It is fun to try to figure out what the threat is as our heros gain clues. A good entertaining read.
