This was quite a fun book. Not as hilarious or outlandish as the first one, but still a ride.
Alcatraz is back and on the trail of his father. Bastille has been demoted from Knight to Squire and has to deal with her mother being the Knight in charge of her, and in charge of protecting Alcatraz. The quest to find his father leads them to the Library of Alexandria (interestingly it is a hut in the middle of nowhere looked after by some pretty creepy curators). Along the way Alcatraz meets more of his family, Austrailia whose Talent is waking up ugly, and Kaz whose Talent is getting lost. Alcatraz also learns more about his parents relationship.
Saying anything more would give too much away! Simply put, if you liked the first one, you'll like the second one.
