Product description

Annie and Kat begin their second year at Gunnerkrigg Court! Parts of Annie's past are revealed, as well as mysteries that tie back to the origins of the Court itself. Finding a secret tomb of ancient robots beneath Kat's workshop leads the two friends to question how they are linked to the mysterious ghost that attacked Annie the year before. And as a new Medium-In-Training, Annie is able to visit the powerful trickster god Coyote in Gillitie Forest, a visit that reveals more than she ever imagined!

Reason for Reading: Next in the series. This is a Cybils '10 nominee and as a panelist for Graphic Novels was required reading for me, but my copy did not come in from the library until after we had handed in our results.

Volume 2 is even better than last year's stunning debut. Vol. 2 has a major difference in that a plot that was awoken near the end of book 1 has taken hold of this book and the story evolves around it with several side stories thrown in. Gone are the seemingly random vignettes, instead to be replaced by a full blown plot of magic and mayhem between the court and the forest, the humans and the non-human creatures living at Gunnerkrigg Court. Returning are all the lovable creatures we met before, Shadow 2, Robot, Reynardine and Antimony's best friend Katja.

While the story moves forward in many directions, one being Annie's placement into the medium-in-training class of three, we are also given long glimpses into Annie's background and the back story of many characters brings some reveals and deeper meaning to just what is going on around Gunnerkrigg court and the forest, why they are separated and what the future may hold for these two girls. A superb and stunning sequel to the series!
