** spoiler alert ** I have truly fond memories of this series from my childhood. My sixth grade class fought each other long and hard for the single copy of this book that the school owned (we had read the first in class) until our teacher finally went out and bought several more copies for her classroom.

I loved the new struggle that was presented to Will. Will struggled so hard against his temper and was forced to humble himself as a slave to the “Masters”. The suits that the human slaves had to wear was kind of comical (as was the salt licks). The one part of the book that I did not like so much was when Will and his master visited the hall of beauty and he found Eloise’s slain and preserved body. I cried so hard when I discovered that there would be no saving her. She had been one of my favorite characters in the first book.
