Dangerous secrets lie between the pages of this book.

OK, I warned you. But if you think I'll give anything away, or tell you that this is the sequel to my first literary endeavor, The Name of This Book is Secret, you're wrong.

I'm not going to remind you of how we last left our heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest, as they awaited intiation into the mysterious Terces Society, or the ongoing fight against the evil Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais. I certainly won't be telling you about how the kids stumble upon the Museum of Magic, where they finally meet the amazing Pietro!

Oh, blast! I've done it again. Well, at least I didn't tell you about the missing Sound Prism, the nefarious Lord Pharaoh, or the mysterious creature born in a bottle over 500 years ago, the key to the biggest secret of all.

I really can't help myself, now can I? Let's face it---if you're reading this, it's too late.

      Cass and Max-Ernest have stopped the Midnight Sun from learning the secret of immortality and also saved their classmate Benjamin Blake. Plus, they've been invited to join the Terces Society, a group dedicated to stopping the Midnight Sun. But before they get the chance to join, they get captured by Ms.Mauvais and Dr. L, the leaders of the Midnight Sun. Eventually, they escape and discover a round white ball in a trunk. It allows them to listen to people talking, even if they're a mile away! Finally, Max-Ernest and Cassandra go to the Museum of Magic, where they join the Terces Society. There, they meet the magician Pietro, and he informs them that the ball is the Sound Prism, and the Midnight sun stole it from the museum. Soon, they learn that the Midnight sun is looking for the evil alchemist Lord Pharoah's grave, where they hope they will find the Secret. They also learn that the Sound Prism and a homunculus, a human made in a bottle, are the keys to finding the grave. Will Cass and Max-Ernest be able to find Lord Pharoh's tomb before the Midnight Sun? I liked this book because of the author's style and also because it was very interesting.

          7 year old: This book series is awesome, but I like the Bad Books a little better. 9 year old: I really liked this series (pseudonymous Bosch loves chocolate!) Mom: We all loved this series, it's got some creepiness factors to it, and I think we all like the Bad Books just a bit better, but this series plays with eternal life and the creepy things the bad guys had to do to get eternal life. Our good guys kept thwarting their plans mwahaha.
