Definitely enjoyed this second book just like I did the first one. Such an imagination-booster! ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
It took me a long time to get through this book. I loved the first book, and couldn't put it down, but I couldn't seem to ever really get interested in the second book. I'm a sucker for interesting settings, and the first book delivered in spades! Toby alone was more character driven, but the characters weren't as interesting to me... ( )

I was slightly lost in the story because of the lack of knowledge I had that would have been gained in the first book. I gave it to my younger sister and she had a little trouble getting through a few of the aspects of it. Overall it was a really good story. I would recommend reading the books in order if you have the opportunity. ( )

I read this with my eight year old daughter. She enjoyed the book but it was a little tough to follow in parts. I was hoping for something a little more child friendly I guess. All in all it was a decent book though. ( )

Enjoyed this sequel to Toby Alone, but not as much as the first book; was a tad slower read and a little more difficult to follow the various threads of the story, but still came to a satisfactory conclusion. ( )
