Gr 5–8—Fans of Hyacinth and the Secrets Beneath will not be disappointed with this sequel. All the evidence of the magical messes and her adventure below London has been erased, but Hyacinth is still curious and gets drawn into an adventure to find a magic stone that protects London. If the stone is not found and returned fast, the city will fall into chaos. Weinstein once again delivers a delightful tale filled with magic, adventure, and humor. This sequel adds more depth to the world-building, expands on character development, and provides a satisfying arc for the characters.
VERDICT Perfect for fans of Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams' "Tunnels" or Suzanne Collins' "Gregor the Overlander" series, and a must-buy where the first novel has an audience.
