Return of the Mystic Gray by Steve Westover
Return of the Mystic Gray is a Crater Lake series book 2
I did not read book 1 of Crater Lake series. While it did stand alone I felt like it would have been better to read book one. I know I will want to read the next book in the series to see what happens next.
Return of the Mystic Gray is full of action, drama. I guess the kids from the first book are back plus some new characters. Most of the children have powers that they can't control.
Ethan and his little sister Jordan are back home. Jordan has visions and they take over her body. Her parents don't understand, but
Ethan tries to protect her. Ethan finds that Jordan has left the house. He finds her on top of barn about to jump off it. She thinks she is jumping into Crater Lake. Ethan gets her awake and takes her back to the house and guards her room. He leaves before his parents wakeup.
Their mom gets a call that their friend Allie is missing. Allie might have burned her house down on purpose. Also another friend from Crater Lake Brady hurt his father and he is in hospital. Brady is missing too. Ethan's mom wants him to stay home from school and no reading if he does not tell her about any information about his friends. While they are fighting Jordan gets on her bus and leaves for school.
When Ethan gets to school he finds his sister as hi-jacked her bus and is driving it away from school. Ethan jumps on the bus but can't get inside to help his sister.
Every time things look calm something else happens to one or all of them. What is making the kids go back to Crater Lake. Who can they trust? Some of what happened in the first book is explained but I want to go read it and than read this book again. I want to do that right before the next book comes out.
I think fans of Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Ranger Apprentice will like these books. Though this is a lot smaller books.
I was given this ebook to read and in exchange asked to give honest review from Netgalley.
