On the second book, the story takes awhile to get going. I didn't have such a fun time meeting all the characters again. I understand some re-cap is always going to be necessary but a significant chunk of the first part of this book was bogged down by reintroducing us to the characters.

But once it got past that, it was great. The story, the puzzles and around-the-world adventure are a ton of fun. The characters themselves have grown over the 'past year' and have some new mannerisms and skills. I loved the humor in the first story and this sequel does not disappoint.

Overall, I found this book just as enjoyable as the first book and am glad to see that the story has been successful enough to warrant a series.
