Much Much better compared to the first one. This time we learn a little bit more about what happened after Sarah left the Labyrinth and now when Toby rules it. The pieces start to come together rather nicely. Though I have to say, how no one figured out that Toby would be king when there is a museum dedicated to him is beyond me...but whatever. It also comes with bonus art work at the end from different artists that is rather well done. Again, much better compared to the first book in the series. Can't wait for the third one!
