"Can you imagine eternal Darkness, sir?"

So asks the sickly stranger who staggers into Peg Leg Nel's birthday party. Before the man dies, he tells Ray and his friends of a Darkness spreading like wildfire across Kansas, turning good people bad and poisoning anyone who tries to escape. It's clear that though the evil Gog is dead, his devilish machine has survived and is growing stronger.

Now a full-fledged Rambler, Ray leads his friends on a mission into the heart of darkness. Vital to their success is tracking down the legendary Wolf Tree, rumored to be a pathway to the spirit world. Only with one of the tree's limbs can the Nine Pound Hammer be repaired and the Gog's terrible machine finally destroyed. The search for the Wolf Tree grows desperate as the Darkness spreads, threatening Ray, his friends, and all of humanity.

The Wolf Tree is the second fantasy adventure book in John Claude Bemis's series The Clockwork Dark, and adds new layers of myth and magic to Bemis's original take on American tall tales in The Nine Pound Hammer.

    " Again slow moving. The prose is good and the characters are compelling, but the chase-plot is simply too long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 8/25/2013

    " I'm listening to this series. It is wonderful, and sticks in my mind all day long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie | 2/28/2013

    " Well done follow up to The Nine Pound Hammer. I enjoyed this book even more than the first. The Wolf Tree offered up more action and adventure than the first book. There were so many loose ends at the end of this book so I'm excited to see if the machine will be destroyed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs. Lee | 11/8/2012

    " Decent sequel but I really rushed my reading to get to the point where they all figured out a key point in the book. I was intrigued that the author decided to split the point of view in this story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Tilatitsky | 9/30/2012

    " This book is a little bit less boring, but it was still fantastic, with twists, turns and surprises at every page. I feel sad that Conker had to stay in the water for nearly a year, but he's allright, and as strong as ever! "
