It's nice to have the final book in a trilogy when you've just finished the second book, but sad, too. The second book felt stronger to me than the first and now I really don't want the series to end. So, book two: Happenstance continues to enjoy his residence in Umber's palace, the Aerie. His peace is shattered by several events. The arrival of a traveler provides information about Hap's past life, but his abilities as a Meddler are still in questions. A glass globe brings a plea from Umber's former employee (and thief) Caspar, to save him. A second message is an invitation to visit Sarnica, a country ruled by an evil tyrant and his equally cruel son. The invitation brings the news that dragon eggs have been stolen by one of Umber's rivals and Sarnica will host the Dragon Games. Umber's curiosity about creatures he hasn't seen overrides the danger of visiting a country run by despots, so he forces both Oates and Hap to accompany him on this journey while Sophia is purposely left at home.

First, they travel to the isle of Desolas to attempt to free Caspar, then on to Sarnica to see the dragons. This is nonstop adventure with evil men or dangerous beasts always nipping at the heels of Umber's party.

The Texas Bluebonnet Award reading list has introduced me to another awesome series and this isn't the only great series on the 2011-12 list.
