In this follow-up to "Here, There Be Dragons," John, Jack, and Charles are brought together again after the children of the Archipelago vanish, and the legendary Dragonships, which can cross between the known worlds and the "Imaginarium Geographica," have also gone missing. (Goodreads).
This is book two of my newly discovered series, The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica. I have to say I in love with this series. I just hope that they continue to get better and better.
Book two takes place nine years in the future from the last book. John, Jack and Charles have not seen each other for nine years, they stay away from each other to protect the Imaginarium Geographica. Certain events lead to the meeting of the three friends and yet again they are taken on another adventure in Archipelago of Dreams. They learn that all the children of Archipelago have disappeared without a trace, along with the Dragon ships.
What I love about this series is that there is never a boring moment. Each chapter is fast paced and filled with adventure. I noticed a pattern, each chapter reveals a big puzzle peace that fits the story line. So by the end of the book, we have all the pieces put together. I actually like this, it is like putting a puzzle together.
I love what the author has done with the characters in this book; this story centers around lost children and also there is a story about Peter Pan. I love seeing loved literary characters being part of another story. We encounter a lot of the characters from the privious book and we also meet some new ones. My favourite new character in this book was Laura Glue, she was such a sweet and funny, I just loved her.
Overall this book lives up to its sequal potential. I have to say that it was excelent read and I'm looking forwart to reading book three. I give this books 5/5 STARS - Happy Reading.
