Gurl and Bug are back, but everything has changed (WARNING:  If you haven’t read The Wall and the Wing, walk away now!!  Major Major spoiler alert!!).  Gurl, now knows as Georgie, is The Richest Girl in the World, and she is slowly settling into her new life.  Bug, a celebrity in his own right, has grown distant due to his busy schedule and huge starpower.  When strange things begin to happen, the two must come together to solve another mysetery.  This time around, giant octopi are hanging out in the harbor, fashionista vamps are trying to invade Georgie’s penthouse, and a giant sloth carries The Second Richest Girl in the World up the Empire State Building.  Something is definitely afoot, and soon the two are up to their eyeballs in weirdness as they begin to search for the Book of the Undead and the magic pen that activates it before both fall into the wrong hands.

Like its predeccesor, The Chaos King is full of startling and unusual characters that push our heroes to the limit.  Filled with dark humor, tons of suspense, and a cast of oddballs, this novel is sure to delight fans of The Wall and The Wing.   Now if only Ruby would write another!
