Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy

The Terrorian threat of war continues to cast a shadow over the realms within the Library of Illumination system despite the success of 18-year-old Johanna Charette and 17-year-old Jackson Roth at stopping an earlier invasion. Now, a time machine is missing—its errant use creating ripples in the space-time continuum. And if that’s not bad enough, someone, or something, is trying to steal a mystical book of spells and potions left behind by a powerful medieval sorcerer. It’s a formula that could spell disaster for people on thirteen different realms and change their lives forever.
I have read the previous novel in the series and this one does not disappoint. Everything I loved from the first was back! Wonderfully developed characters that are compelling and real help to create a world and people I cared about as a reader. This one stepped up the action a bit. I liked how detailed C.A. Pack was with this. I like it when scenes like that feel real. For a second book in a series, I was surprised at how fresh and how many surprises there were in this story. What a wonderful job of keeping the reader invested in the series and its characters!
