Having thoroughly enjoyed the first series, I was excited to discover that this second series existed. Leading pretty much straight on from where I left off (minus a small adventure with the Vespers in some sort of bridging book I seemed to have missed), Amy and Dan are thrust into yet another difficult situation as the evil Vespers kidnap their friends and force them to carry out certain crimes if they ever want to see them alive again.

One of the things I loved in the original series was the way characters started out as complete stereotypes (the cunning Lucians, the strong Tomas, smart Ekats etc) and gradually, as you got to know them, they grew and became more complex. Now that their infighting is (mostly) behind them, it's fun to see the young Cahills banding together to fight a much bigger external threat. All of my favourite characters from the last series are back and there's mystery and adventure a-plenty to keep me entertained.

Another thing I loved in the original was the way you got to learn about history without even meaning to. This time, we are on the trail of some famous (and somewhat more obscure) artists in Italy. While never intruding on the pace of the story, I enjoyed discovering places and paintings I'd never heard of and losing myself (along with Amy and Dan) in the catacombs beneath Rome.

All in all, an amazing start to what promises to be an even more exciting series (if that's possible). Can't wait to get stuck into book 2!

Because I care about creating a world of peace, justice and humanity....

and because the word "human" is from the root word "humane" (heart-oriented)...

I recommend boycotting the entire series to show other authors and publishers we who want peace will not accept a series that has knives coming out of ones fingernails,

Or as in the Medusa Plot, a main character boy has such a thought as to consider pouring gasoline and lighting one or more living beings!!!

Read to discern the path of peace. Let your voice be heard, join me in boycotting this series!

The publishers could put out a second edition of the entire series, rewritten to be clearly on the side of humanity and peace.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: SPOILER ALERT: Nellie gets shot in the arm and they have to remove the bullet. Mildy gory and a bit disturbing.
