My Son's Review:
Book 1, The Quest for Truth, introduced me to a fun new world in science fiction. The second book, Risk, begins with Austin, Mason, Tiffany, and Oliver going to the planet Evad to try to find their parents and also discover what is on Evad. When they arrive, they start exploring and find a temple ruins. They find out some odd things there. For example, one of the only ways to open the doors is to touch these pillars shaped like "upside down snowmen." These odd things draw you into the story and keep you hooked.
They split up after a bit to spread out to find anything that could help them locate their parents. They are also searching for why Evad was in their parents' Diary. Tiffany and Mason find a library that holds some answers about where they are. All is fine until Austin and Tiffany find a telescope and spy the Ubel coming.
I liked how the author put the majority of the setting in the ruins. It kept the story interesting and the reader wondering what would happen next. I also liked how he brought back Obbin to help Austin and Mason again. Sometimes a sequel to a series can be a bit of a let down, but this one wasn't. I loved the adventure and trying to figure out each of the puzzles. It made me want to read more; I can't wait for Unleash to release!
