The second book came out this week and it is good. I liked the book, and the characters and again like the first one I read it in one sitting or as much as possible in one sitting with a baby and preschooler in the house. Of course there are more riddles in the book and some new characters. I must say though James’ has an interesting penchant for names. Seriously who names a character Mothball and a villainess Mistress Jane, but I loved it. The more I get into the books the more I love the fun, zany names. This time Tick, Sofia and Paul race Mistress Jane to reach Dark Infinity, a new weapon of incredible power. They jump from reality to reality trying to solve the riddles and keep the new weapon out Misstress Jane’s hands. In addition some realities are fragmenting and mysterious disease seems to be causing people to go insane. One of my all time favorite parts in the books is when Tick’s mom reveals a secret about herself and it is taking all my self control to not tell you. Guess you will have to read it to find out.
I would recommend this series to my Grandma (she is also a big fantasy fan) and that is a high compliment considering she gets my top picks as recommendations. Can’t wait for the next book.
