Together, Miles and Gareth must uncover the secrets behind a most sinister plot.

I loved this sequel more than the first book! The stakes/the danger for the characters seemed higher, this story had more grotesqueness to it, a bigger likable cast, and more humor! And, while it does have an ending, this book doesn't wrap it all up--it ends somewhat on a cliffhanger. Now I just have to wait for the third book to come in to find out how it all ends.
