The young soldiers at Valley Forge are suffering from hunger, cold, and the threat of the British army. Their newly forged bonds of friendship might be enough to help them survive. But the chains of Curzon's past threaten to shackle him again.

Surrounded by the fires of ignorance, mistrust, and greed, Curzon can't risk sharing his deadly secrets with anyone. Does he have the mettle to hold on to his freedom? To claim his rightful place as an American? Is he strong enough to find the answer to the hardest question of all: Is Isabel still alive?

Acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson continues the thrilling adventure started in her bestselling, award-winning novel Chains. Ride along on a gallop that will take you from battling the British at Saratoga to fighting the elements at Valley Forge to rebelling against merciless tyranny. Discover what the fight for freedom was really all about.

    " Continues the story of Isabel and Curzon, two runaway slaves in Colonial America. I think I enjoyed this one even more than Chains. Both bring up questions of liberty and the juxtaposition of a nation seeking freedom from its oppressors, while denying the liberty of others within its boundaries. "

    " Okay, I could've given this one 4 stars; it really was a toss up. I very much missed hearing this one on audio, as I had Chains. I liked Curzon and the rich details of the story, but his world didn't become mine in the same was Isabel's had. I do plan on reading the third, Ashes, at some point. "

    " A well-researched and emotional historical fiction read, but not quite as good as "Chains". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 5/4/2011

    " The first book was slightly more gripping, but this is still a great read. I love that the narrator changes and Anderson shows us about life at Valley Forge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 4/20/2011

    " Isn't it ironic that the American Revolution's high ideals of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" didn't include their slaves? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 4/17/2011

    " Not as good as Chains, I think because it was narrated by corzan rather than Isabel. Although it would appeal more to boys. It would be interesting to have a class read both and see how they felt. Also, I felt a little duped at the end as it was SO OBVIOUSLY leading up to book #3. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 4/15/2011

    " This is a wonderful follow-up to the amazing book Chains. I would highly recommend the audio version, as the narrator is gripping! "

    " I really liked this book and chains. I like the history part and the characters, I want to know that they have a happy ending. Book 3 doesn't come out until Oct. "
