Ever since Charlotte and her cousin Zee thwarted Philonecron in his efforts to use the shadows of their friends as his slaves, life has been fairly normal.  But ole Phil isn’t used to not getting his way and he is enraged that his carefully constructed plans were defeated by a bunch of eighth graders.  Now he is teaming up with his grandfather Posideon to extract his revenge, and what better setting than an educational cruise?  Soon Charlotte’s parents and all of the other adults are hypnotized and an enormous sea beast is about to attack!  Are the cousins in over their heads?

Welcome to the hilarious sequel to The Shadow Thieves, the first book in the Cronus Chronicles.  Charlotte and Zee continue to delight with more amusing high jinks and exciting adventures.  The action is exceptional and Ursu’s style brings a much needed levity to tense situations.  Fans of the first book will not be disappointed and will look forward to the next installment.
