Sam and Jake are now guardians of two worlds, but can they stop the coming war?
Sam and Jake still have nightmares of their battle with Magnar a year ago. And Sam doesn't want to touch WhipEye - but the supernatural staff is calling to her.
On Jake's birthday, an ancient Komodo dragon poisons Sam's dad and Jake's mom. To get the antidote, Sam must bring WhipEye to Gorgon - the cruel and scheming leader of the Amazon Lessers. Giant monsters, dragons, and mysterious creatures are gathering for war.
Gorgon demands that Sam and Jake destroy the world of KiraKu. Sam refuses, but Jake will do whatever it takes to save his mother.
To stop Gorgon, Sam must be willing to risk the lives of her friends in a battle that some will not survive. And Sam and Jake might have to watch their parents die....

Sam and Jake are dealing with a danger closer to home than ever before. Sam and Jake are about to become more than friends when their parents announce their engagement then fall prey to a huge lesser Komodo dragon! Refusing to give up WhipEye, Sam and Jake must work together to save their parents, Kiraku, their friends and escape from the military/government who is chasing them. Trying to do it all, Sam and Jake go to Kiraku for help in keeping WhipEye and the Jewel of Origin away from Gorgon. What they bring back with them adds fuel to the fire as there are new powerful and selfish players added to the mix.
Geoffrey Saign, the author, does a fantastic job of seamlessly continuing on with the story of Sam and Jake and their friends. He builds more character depth to Sam and Jake by showing their growth emotionally and mentally through their own doubts and trust. Saign gives us more creatures than before, vividly describing their beauty and fierceness.
Book 2 is truly an adventure story that is action-packed and captivating. One cannot put the book down once the action begins. Saign builds the villains and heroes and the story with great stealth and care for the sole purpose of capturing his audience and holding them prisoner until the last word is spoken. You will gasp, you will cry, you will laugh but mostly you will want to know when the next book comes out so you can ride the magnificent rollercoaster that Saign takes you on.
The narrator, Lauren Holladay, is perfect for this series! Her voice helps move the story along as well as endearing Sam, Jake, Charlie, and others to the listener. Holladay makes it her own through her vivacious reading. I enjoy her voice and agility.
This is a series that captivates listeners of all ages!
