Jimmy Crikey is the amazing orphaned alien who has chosen to make his home on Earth in the magical lands of Roombelow.
He numbers among his friends the four Guardian witches of Earth’s realms. Their leader, Matilda, introduces the remarkably young Diamite, Jade, into the Guardians of Earth Sisterhood as an apprentice witch.
The Sky Islands get caught up in terrible tornado-strength winds, and they are being torn apart by whirling winds. Matilda sends her youngest witch to save the imperilled Islanders. Can apprentice Jade rescue the Islanders?
Collapsing roofs threaten to destroy the cave world of Lithnia. Jade and Jimmy discover the cause and fight giant scarab beatles, chewing up the rocks to get at the precious diamonites.
Alien invaders from the star system of Centauri need the diamonites to protect their planet from gamma rays, and they are ready to start an intergalactic war to secure supplies.
Jimmy, Jade and starship navigator XRU devise an alternative and war is averted.
Jade finally graduates to the Sisterhood, and the celebrations bring joy and sorrow in equal measure. Matilda is called to a higher level, but who will she appoint as her successor?

This is the second book in The Adventures of Jimmy Crickey series that I have had the pleasure of reading. The imagination of the author, William Briggs, is wonderful!!! …
Jimmy and Jade go through quite a few situations with a multitude of characters and creatures. My personal favorite being a horde of rock eating scarab beetles who threaten an underground land. The adventures take Jimmy and Jade from the underground land to sky islands as well as leading them to an island in the arctic.
The author takes the reader on a journey way beyond the mind. There are a multitude of other characters as well, including another alien race trying to save their own planet. …
This book is an excellent read for children into their teens. Its exciting, has great morals to be learned about helping others and taking responsibility. It is completely full of fantasy and grabs your attention from the beginning to the end. A wonderful series!!!!
