Harry and friends are back and I was rather excited about this book. I read the first one and enjoyed the characters a lot but had thought the story was a touch slow so I was hoping this one would have more build on each character and the action would move along at a better pace. The book starts off where the last left off, I like that the action/adventure started right at the beginning and I thought the characters build was a bit more at least with Billie. I still however thought the pace was a touch slow and at times the story was becoming very confusing, it was hard to keep up. I am not really sure if it all made a lot of sense to me. I think that is also what happened when I read the first book. I think younger kids might be able to follow along but I think as an adult I was looking for more depth and more magic from Harry. I still feel like it’s lacking what Houdini did and his great escapes. Harry reminds me more of Sherlock Holmes than Houdini.
This would be a great read for MG or Younger kids, it has very likable characters. I think my confusion came more from wanting more depth, it just seemed simple. The story didn’t flow like I think it should. As much as this is a fun book to read I am not sure I will continue with this series. However it does have a lot of fun moments just don’t think it worked that well for me.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
