Bobby is still uncertain about what happened to his family after he was recruited as a "Traveler," a heroic role that first pitted him against the shapechanging monster, Saint Dane, in the series' debut, The Merchant of Death. It's a radically different life from that of junior high student in Stony Brook, Conn., where his friends Mark and Courtney eagerly await the journals in which he updates them with the latest events from various colorful "Territories." In the fabled city of Faar, beneath the waves, Bobby meets Spader, who is also a Traveler, and quickly becomes his first mate. Unbeknownst to Spader, his submerged city is partially responsible for the peace felt above the surface in the floating habitats. When Saint Dane decides to annihilate Faar, Bobby and his Traveler buddies must race to outwit the villain. Things aren't exactly calm back on Second Earth. The town bully has discovered one of the pages and is threatening to expose Bobby's secret mission to the police (who have no idea why Bobby and his family have disappeared) if Mark and Courtney don't share the journals with him.
I loved these series. My more importantly 3 of my kids did. Expecially my son who hates to read! Typical plot good vs. evil but it keeps your attention.
In this book Bobby Pendragon continues his fight on Faar and meets one of his all time great friends Spader. This is a great adventure in this continuing series.
Rely good book. Walked around with it everywhere reading. Hard to put done! Hooked on the series now!
I actually have mixed feelings about this book. It's full of adventure & very detailed... But I just wasn't excited to read it like I was in the first book.
Don't get me wrong, I'm going to continue to read the series but I don't think I'll be reaching for the 3rd book anytime soon
I was very upset that Uncle Press had to die. He is the character that I felt held the story together. I'm not sure how the author is going to go on without this character, i know I am going to have a hard time without him.
Best series EVER. Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend this exciting book.
