***I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review***

Pack’s Second Chronicles of Illumination is, as the name suggests, the second book in the series. However, it is readable as a stand-alone, as there’s enough recap to give a good grounding. I found the concept of various realms connected via portals quite nifty, and the descriptions wonderful.. Some of the realms are Dramatis, Terroria, Fantasia, and Lamina. The main characters, Johanna and Jackson who work in one of the portal libraries, travel amongst the realms, having adventures. This pair complement one another nicely, balancing flaws and strengths.

Pack’s writing is imaginative. The stories are easy to get into. I did need to put myself in the mindset of looking at the stories, or Books, as serials, so there wasn't the expectation of full resolution to things. That's the biggest caution I offer, and it is not a bad thing if you are expecting it, which you should be given the very first words. It certainly makes the next set something to look forward to!

If you enjoy dimension-travelling, and meeting all kinds of beings in true fantasy fashion,be sure to check out C A Pack’s Second Chronicles of Illumination, and it's predecessor! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0991542851, Hardcover)

When an alien invasion threatens the existence of all the knowledge in the universe, eighteen-year-old Johanna Charette and seventeen-year-old Jackson Roth must rely on their wits, guts, and pluck to save the fantasy-come-to-life world of the Library of Illumination. It wouldn t be so bad if Johanna and Jackson weren t the ones responsible for breaching the portals to a dozen distant worlds. Now, outside forces are causing shock waves in the space-time continuum, and if that isn t awful enough, someone from another dimension is trying to steal a book of powerful spells created by a very famous wizard. At first, traveling to other realms in a time machine seems like a fun perk. However, discovering some inhabitants want to obliterate the teens doesn't leave them with a warm, fuzzy feeling. Instead, they find themselves forced to sacrifice their own welfare and the safety of their loved ones for the greater good.
