"The Night Tourist", the first book in this series, was a great discovery. Strong characters, fascinating premise, witty dialogue, action, and an engaging story all built to a fine fantastical reading experience.

This sequel has most of the same strengths to some degree, but until the end it feels very rushed and doesn't add much to the experience apart from repetition. A great deal of the book relates to Jack's attempts to meet and then impress a girl, and to a recapping of all of the underworld rules once Jack and that girl cross over into the underworld. We learn more about Euri and see a bit of growth in Jack, but most of this book just skims over the same territory, (exiting through fountains, finding out where particular ghosts are now haunting, meeting dead famous people, avoiding Cerberus, etc.), as was covered in "The Night Tourist".

That's all O.K. if you really loved these characters and want more of them. Just don't expect this book to expand much beyond what you already know and like, or to add many new or interesting aspects of the underworld.

This book 2 of the 2 book series was a fine companion to the first book. Clever and funnread

Sorry that this book did not sell as well as the first book in this two-book series. Protagonist Jack is now a year or two older, and is finding out about jealousy and love triangles-- good stuff for 'tweeners and middle schoolers who also like a) fantasy, and b) Greek mythology, to ponder over.

The book was great and had alot of conflict the setting was everywhere the sort term love story. The booj was a thriller and a romance novel.

I love this book. Best I've ever read. Read the first, 2nd was better. The storyline was so good. I
I picked up The Night Tourist on a whim and it was interesting, so I decided to read its sequel. Borders and B&N didn't have it, only Amazon.
