With their enchanted instruments charming the crowds, the Assorted Zebras attract interest from record producers, and soon they’re off to cut their first album and music video. Jason and his friends don’t know they’ve just become pawns in a sinister plot by a cabal of evil fairies…
Meanwhile, Aoide and her band pursue a new strategy for regaining their stolen instruments, one that will take them into the most haunted region in Faerie.
It was so much fun to read the second book of this series, even moreso than the last book. I really enjoyed the fairies a lot this time, they have such funny personalities. In this book they go to enlilst the help of wolf banshees to get their instruments back. Their quest through some of the most perilous parts of their world was comical (I absolutely loved the scene with the pumpkin patch!) but also had its tense moments.
Mitch, Dred, Jason and Erin have quite an adventure themselves. In Ireland! Magicking their parents so they can go record with an important company, the tie between Jason and Erin cotinues to grow, still awkard but it is a nice budding relationship. They have dark fae after them that concludes with a nice battle full of, if not surprises, at least entertaining allies.
I really enjoyed reading more about these to groups and I look forward to reading more of Bryan’s works. Happy Thursday!
