Fort Fitzgerald lost his father during an attack on Washington, DC. His nightmares about his father give him hope that his father is still alive, and Fort is determined to do anything he can, including risking his own life, to bring his father back. He puts into play a plan involving his friends and magic. Will Fort succeed?

This is the second book of The Revenge of Magic series, and, as is typical of second books in a series, it's a bridge book between a strong beginning and a strong ending.

This was a super fun story! Fast-paced with a suspenseful prophecy and full of sneaky twists and turns, it's a great sequel to The Revenge of Magic.

(Also, this author is writing a book in this series every six months! That's so crazy impressive!)

I received an ARC this book and was excited to read it, but it didn’t take long to realize that I really should’ve read book 1 first. I stuck with it for about 50 pages and had so many questions that I finally had to quit. But my curiosity is piqued and I plan to locate a copy of the first in this intriguing fantasy series.
After the disasters that occurred in book one of The Revenge of Magic series, I figured book two would be just as exciting. And I was right. Poor Fort, all he wants is to get his father back. He never intended to end up at a magic school where his actions would nearly result in the Old Ones returning to earth to destroy humanity. After their near escape, Fort and the other magic students have been moved to a back up location. And despite everything that has gone wrong, Fort has been informed ...more

First off, I did not read the beginning of this series, and that was a big mistake. Book two takes off where the first one ends, and it is very difficult to sink into the story without having read the first in the series. In other words, this book is definitely not a stand alone and can not be read without reading book one.

Fast paced and carrying dark tones, this is a read which fantasy friends are sure to enjoy.

It took me quite awhile (more than several chapters) to feel my way into this read,

It’s been six months since the attack that took Fort’s father from him, but the recent hope that his father might be alive has given Fort a goal. Rescuing him is all Fort thinks about, and now he has a plan to steal the magic book he needs. But complications come from unexpected places, including a new roommate he is expected to spend all his time helping. Then there are the nightmares where the Old One promises Fort his father back in exchange for the last dragon. Can Fort find the last dragon? ...more

First off, this is book two in the series and I did not read the first one. Luckily, the author does a great job of releasing info so that the reader fully understands what came before. However, some of the things he mentions seem really cool and I wish I'd read the first book. So my recommendation is to read the first one.

The story starts off with Fort now at the new Oppenheimer school for magical kids. He can't forget that his father was taken in the last book, so the entire theme of this

I received this e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

This sequel picks up shortly after the events of The Revenge of Magic. The Oppenheimer School has been relocated to another top secret location. Fort is having nightmares about the day his father was taken. The dreams ends with the Old One demanding the location of the last dragon. Fort has no idea where that could be. Cyrus, Fort’s best friend, is being transferred to the U.K. school and Fort is moved

E ARC from Edelweiss

I've been reading a lot of dragon books this summer because I have a huge number of Tui Sutherland fans. They want a very particular type of dragon book, and this just wasn't it. They don't want things set in the modern world with dragon population declining. Medieval worlds with small dragon populations are okay; it's better if the dragon community is doing well or experiencing a resurgence.

There are lots of impassioned conversations. Perhaps I think a little too much about

An excellent followup. If Riley wasn't bad with titles and names (though Forscythe works fairly well), he would be right up there with Riordan and Rowling and all the other authors so popular today. The plot expands its horizons in The Last Dragon, delivering information at a reasonable pace whilst still keeping readers on the edge of their seats, physically incapable of lowering the book from their eyes.

The search for the last dragon and the Old ones continues in book 2.
A new character is introduced and hints to his identity are provided along the journey.
Surprise ending with who Gabriel is and who the Last Dragon turns out to be.
Cliffhanger ending to move to Book 3.
Riley's writing style has certainly evolved and he spins out the action and suspense equally. His characters are flawed and human and relatable.
This book was better than the first! I love this series so much, I cant wait to read the third book when it comes out!

This second book in the Revenge of Magic series picks up shortly after the first book ends, and is full of just as much action and magic! Read The Revenge of Magic first though. This one doesn't do much explaining of pervious events, which is fine as long as you have read it. A bit darker than Riley's pervious series. Highly recommended for grades 5 & up.
