I recently discovered and quickly devoured The Search for Wondla, and had to read A Hero for Wondla right away. The only bad thing I can say is now I have to wait so long for the third book! DiTerlizzi continues the story of Eva Nine as she embarks on a new journey of meeting fellow humans and finding out what happened to Earth. While I was intrigued by the character Eva Nine in the first book, in the second book my love for this character intensified and I feel fully invested in her and Rovee.
I was excited to see the other humans and their city, but found that while that part was interesting, the best part of the story was Eva's development and growth. While The Search for WondLa introduced us to this strange new world and characters, A Hero for WondLa shows the growth and development of a true hero.
DiTerlizzi does a great job of exploring the characters and their environments, and introduces us to some new elements along the way. Once again, the story is accompanied by wonderful illustrations (blue-tinged this time) that help to carry the narrative forward.
A Hero for WondLa definitely answers a lot of questions that were left unanswered in The Search for WondLa, but leaves us with enough mystery and a slight cliffhanger to leave us wanting more. I think that the WondLa books are ones I'll return to again and again in the future, and will recommend them to my friends and family. I can't wait for the next book, and yet at the same time I'm dreading an end to this wonderful series.
