Content - *May Contain Spoilers* The kids fight on occasion and one is disobedient. They care about each other but, as the adventure goes on, the care and respect becomes deeper. Each Wikk does what they can to look out for one another and try to protect each other.
Personal Opinion - When I reviewed book 1, Taken, I said this series had a lot of promise and that it could be exciting in the future books. Book 2, Risk, did not disappoint in any of those regards, even going to the points of excelling. I felt I got to know the Wikk kids more and the quest was fast paced and danger filled, the action beginning quickly and lasting through the whole book. The Christian element was also coming out more. Loved it. Just saw some telling, a technical element in storytelling, errors while reading but I didn't mind them much. This is my favorite book so far of the series and can't wait to read book 3, Unleash, coming out later this year. Wish I could have it now.
