Move over Percy Jackson! This book is even better than the first one, which was also pretty great. This is the most fun I've had reading a mid-grade series since Sarah Prineas' Magic Thief series.

The Garza twins are great characters to spend time with, and I love how integral their close family relationships are to the story. Even though most of the action takes place away from their parents, the bonds of family are what gives these stories heart.

My favorite thing, though, is the mythos being ex

This is the second in the YA, teen-oriented series by David Bowles. It tells the story of the shape-shifting Garza twins Carol And Johnny, and their family. Family is a huge theme in these stories.

While the "Garza Twins" sci-fi/fantasy series is geared more for tween readers, I've taken time to try out these titles -- and oh how I relished escaping into this sequel, far more so than the original! I'll admit, what likely biased me to favor Book Two so strongly was my personal fascination with the ocean. My favorite character here recalled for me a now-famous cinematic Amphibian Man. The best moment for me was the unexpected yet timely arrival of a certain goddess -- I couldn't help but thi ...more
