Brilliant and Fun

During the current trend of Youth fiction saturated with dystopia, Jessica Day George has a gift for weaving a fun and intriguing story, that's clean and easy to follow, allowing youth to be heroes but not disregarding positive parental involvement.

Excellent sequel

I listened to the first book in this series earlier this year and enjoyed it so much I decided to try the rest of the series.

This second book in the series had just as much charm as the first, though perhaps not quite as much excitement or intrigue. There is a mystery, however, as Celie is having to figure out why a gryphon egg has appeared in a new tower in the castle and why the castle seems to want her to raise the baby gryphon in secret.

Just like in the first book I enjoyed the character's personalities and the teamwork between the children whether siblings or friends. (I love seeing healthy sibling relationships in books. ❤) Though certain aspects of the plot once again put much of the responsibility for dealing with the problems on the children, I once again appreciated that the adults were not portrayed as stupid or incompetent and that Celie wanted to involve her parents in what was going on, but was simply kept from doing so for by the castle for a while. Once the parents were able, they didn't hesitate to try to help.

The only mild disappointment was that I wasn't expecting a cliffhanger ending since the first book wrapped itself up so tidily, but a cliffhanger there was. Still, it does its job and I will read the next book, so that's not much of a complaint. I'm excited to see what happens!

Descriptive Imagery, Enchanting Tale

The performance is impeccable and compliments the story superbly. I enjoyed learning more about the castle and meeting new characters in this story.

Fun middle grade fantasy

This book was fun to listen to. The story was cute and entertaining. The castle being somewhat alive and changing constantly changing is cool and the Griffin is a neat creature that you don't see in books very often. Celie is a cute main character, adventurous and smart. I like the way she interacts with her siblings, especially her brothers. It's nice seeing them get along and support each other. This one had a cliffhanger so now I'll be checking out the third book!

Just as mysterious and exciting as book 1

I'm thrilled to say that, my daughter who hates reading, is addicted to this series. The second book is just as good as the first. It has a suspenseful plot line that keeps you guessing constantly. The book provides great opportunities to discuss theories, plot development, imagery, and characters.
