Publisher's Summary

It will take more than magical candy to win this war! Something fishy is going on at the new amusement center in Walnut Hills. The trouble seems linked to the mysterious disappearance of Mozag and John Dar, who have spent their lives policing the magical community. When Nate and his friends are asked to help investigate, they discover kids feverishly playing arcade games in an effort to win enough tickets to redeem one of four stamps: jets, tanks, submarines, and racecars.

Rumor has it that the stamps are definitely worth it. But what do they do? The kids soon discover that the owner of Arcadeland is recruiting members for four different clubs. When each club is filled, he will begin his quest to retrieve a magical talisman of almost unimaginable power. With John Dart and Mozag sidelined, will Nate, Summer, Trevor, Pigeon, and their new friend, Lindy, find a way to save the day? Find out in this sweetest adventure ever!

The Action Continues

So this book nicely follows Book 1 and if you liked it, you will probably like this too. The plot is more complex, a little more violent magic... but a lot more courage, teamwork and character shown by the group of friends. This time the evil magician is Belinda White's "wants to rule the world" brother... who also uses groups of children from the arcade... given gifts of magic enhancers to accomplish tasks he can't do himself. What kid doesn't want to fly? Parents concerns are this time reduced by Cheese Nachos rather than White Chocolate. I liked the narration better and although I still wasn't as an adult fully engaged... I think the tween population will really enjoy. I like Brandon Mulls creative mind.

A strong second to an amazing first

A bit more violent and serious then the first, it is a welcome change! Focuses not just on the story at hand, but of good reminders of the first adventure.

Amazing

The narrator voice was great. This book is a recommendation to fantasy lovers and magic. This was better than the first book. The kids trying to get tickets was the most funniest and when the kids carry out the missions was enetertaing. If you havent read the book already, give it a go. I promise youĺl never regret it if you are a fan of harry potter and fanasty combined with the magic candy
