Review quote

"As in the first installment, there is plenty of action; readers will encounter saber-toothed spiders and shark kites, as well as sea serpents, mechanical scorpions, and the dreaded Apprentice. . . This fast-paced sequel exploring deep topics of power, corruption, family, and identity will find a broad audience."--School Library Journalshow more
