Lucien Charon, Trey's mentor, lies in a coma in London, Trey is his only hope for survival. But the Netherworld is intent on destruction and Trey's about to face his nemesis . . . 


My Review
After finishing book one i could not wait to start on this one and went straight into it. It picks off shortly after the first one ended, Lucien is in a coma and Tom, Trey and alexa must journey to Iceland to retrieve the one object that can restore Lucien to life. You are also introduced to some new characters, Charles a young man who is a very talented sorceror and Martin Tipsbury, an employee of the company.
Things are not as they seem, there is a spy in the office, but who or what is it.
I still really enjoyed this book, and quite liked the new points of view, but i missed Lucien, i think he played a big part of holding the story together and making it exciting, without him it just felt like something was missing.
However, there was still a lot of excitement and twists to keep you gripped to your seat. 
Trey really develops as a character and you learn a bit more about his past. The characters became more alive in this book and i look forward to reading more from them. This book starts off a little weak but emerges into an epic finish. Definitely worth a read, bring on book three.


My Rating
i would give this book 7.5/10, good read but not as good as the first.

As a grandfather, I just love the books that young people are reading and it's amusing to learn about a fourteen year old weirwolf.
Maybe my next book will be about a senior citizen weirwolf, picking victims from the lines at the social security office.
