The middle grade fantasy adventure continues in a sequel that “does not disappoint . . . an exciting blend of Arthurian legend and organized crime” (Kirkus).
After an all-out battle in Mexico, Jax, Riley, and Evangeline have gone into hiding. There are still rogue Transitioners and evil Kin lords out to gain control over the Eighth Day. And that means they’re on the hunt for Riley, a descendant of King Arthur, and Evangeline, a powerful wizard with bloodlines to Merlin.
So Jax is immediately suspicious when a mysterious stranger named Finn Ambrose claims to be his long-lost uncle. And those suspicions turn out to be well founded when Jax’s best friend Billy is kidnapped.
When Jax sneaks off to New York City to rescue Billy, he discovers a surprising truth: Finn is his uncle, and Jax hales from the Dulac clan—a long line of notoriously dangerous Transitioners who want Riley dead and Evangeline as their prisoner. And family or not, the Dulacs will stop at nothing to get what they want.
