I was recently sent the first 2 books in the Pre-teen/Teen Trilogy called Giants in the Land. I love the Title of this Trilogy as if uses the title ‘Giants’ to refer to leaders we all have in our own lives. Our teens are surrounded by ‘Giants’ from parents or teachers and coaches. These books aim to allow teens to find the ‘heart of a giant’ within themselves. They are reminded that feeling of satisfaction and empathy when they are surrounded by those who mean the most to them and can be inspired to be just that to others. We forget to teach that lesson sometimes. We worry about the bad stuff-drugs, social circles, sexual subjects and falling grades, but we forget to talk about the positives. We assume if we teach right, our young sons & daughters will just catch on. To give them a fictional story they like reading where they can follow the character named, Thomas around as he searches for his village neighbors who left suddenly. Thomas has to adapt to change suddenly and find within himself as well as other characters that come out in Book 2 the ability to overcome doubts and work together and problem solve.

  1. Erinn, Thank you for taking time to read and review my trilogy, Giants in the Land. Your insightful treatment was right on and I appreciate especially your emphasis on the characters easy relatability. Too often in literature characters can solve problems with a simple waive of a wand or by calling upon super powers or by beaming up. However, my characters must face their fears and reach deep inside themselves to find that magic and power that they posess. We must do the same and we discover, as do my characters, that it is there for each of us and makes a difference. We all have greatness within.

    Thanks sharing your time with my works,

    Clark Burbidge
