From Booklist

Gr. 7-10. Fifteen-year-old Rachel returns as Spy Goddess for another fast-paced face-off against evil. This time Rachel and the gang must reach an ancient artifact before villain Simon Blankenship snaps it up and makes quick work of Rachel's best friend. Short, action-packed chapters feature catchy titles ("No One Is Going to Cheat Me out of My Hula Lessons") that capture the essence of this exuberant thriller. For anyone who enjoys light spy fiction or action-adventure stories. Cindy Welch

About the Author

Michael P. Spradlin grew up in Michigan rooting for his beloved Detroit Tigers. He collected baseball cards, listened to Tigers games on the radio, and talked his third-grade teacher into bringing her twenty-five-inch Zenith console television to school so the class could watch Game Seven of the 1968 World Series. Now he writes books, still listens to games on the radio, and hopes one day the Tigers will realize the error of their ways and offer him the third-base spot he has coveted for so long. He is also the author of the Youngest Templar trilogy, the Spy Goddess series, and several other picture books. He lives with his family in Lapeer, Michigan.

More About the Author

Michael P. Spradlin is the author of more than a dozen books for children, some of which have actually been published. He grew up in a small town in Michigan not far from the Indiana border, which may explain his irrational fear of Hoosiers. (Both the inhabitants of the state of Indiana and the movie starring Gene Hackman).

Surrounded by books in his formative years, he grew up loving to read, imagining himself the hero of numerous epic battles and indulging in his favorite pastime, which was smuggling fireworks across the Ohio border so that he could blow up his collection of Plastic Green Army Men and Matchbox Cars.

Michael is the author The Youngest Templar trilogy, The Spy Goddess series, and several picture books including the award winning Daniel Boone's Great Escape.

When not writing, he enjoys reading, traveling, spending time with his family and worrying over the fact that he really should be writing instead of doing other stuff. He lives in Michigan with his wife Kelly, son Michael, daughter Rachel and two dogs Willow and Apollo

Rachel Buchanan is definitely a Beverly Hills girl. But when she fights the law, and loses, even her wealthy father cannot look the other way. That is how she ended up at the Blackthorn Academy, a boarding school in Pennsylvania. What her father did not know, and still does not know, is that the academy sits on top of a sophisticated crime lab and Rachel is training to be a spy. Whether Rachel likes it or not, there is a really evil man named Simon Blankenship, who believes himself to be "Mithras". Simon is after seven treasures that were hidden by Centurions during the Roman era. Simon also believes that Rachel is the reincarnation of the Goddess of Light, Etherea, and he will not rest until she is dead. Rachel is being trained by the school's headmaster, Jonathon Kim. Her group of friends include Pilar, who has psychic feelings, Alex, Pilar's boyfriend who is too macho for words, and Brent, a shy and mysterious super genius.

This time Mr. Kim and Mr. Quinn go to Hawaii, in search of one of the seven treasures. Problem is they are looking in the wrong place. So Rachel and her friends sneak out of the academy and head for Hawaii. Simon, and his dedicated, fanatical group of followers, are waiting for her. Sometimes being a goddess totally reeks!

***** Non-stop action, much like the animated series "Totally Spies". It does not matter if you are male or female, you are going to LOVE these spy novels! I hope they someday get picked up for a television series. STELLAR! *****

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best books I've read in a while. I read the first one and then got this one and it's even better.

Rachel Buchanan and her friends at Blackthorn Academy have to fight against Simon Blankenship. He thinks he can cummon up the powers of Mithras a Roman god of the afterlife if he can steal all the stuff he needs to do it. Rachel kept him from getting one of the things he needed in the first book, and this time she and her friends have to sneak out of Blackthorn and get to Hawaii before Simon can get his hands on antoher artifact.

The book just races from chapter to chapter. I love Rachel. She's funny and always making Blankenship angry with her jokes and combacks.

I highly recommend this book!

I couldn't wait for this book to come out after I read the first one. This one is even better.

This time Rachel Buchanan gets involved in an even bigger mystery and it takes her and her friends to Hawaii on the trial of one of the missing artifacts that Simon Blankenship is after. Once she's there, she gets captured by Blankenship again and has to escape and not only does she escape but she keeps him from getting the artifact.

Rachel is a great character. She's funny and smart and always has a really funny wisecrack when Blankenship or one of her friends starts to annoy her.

It's non stop excitement and adventure and I really couldn't read it fast enough. I can't wait for the next one!

I have read both the Spy Goddess books now and can't wait for more! This author spoke at a festival in Kansas I went to, and I read the books because he made them sound so interesting. They are funny and exciting!

I love the charactre of Rachel Buchanan. She's smart and I love how she makes fun of Simon Blankenship who is the bad guy in the book. She always has a good comeback for any situation.

This book is full of excitement and lots of action. I definitely recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Oh man, this was a fantastic read!! As much as I liked the first one, this one was even better!

This book picks up right where the first book leaves off. Rachel and her friends have to stop a madman who plans to call up a big ole mythical baddie to over take the world. the problem is that the madman thinks that Rachel is an accent goddess reincarnated and is the only person that can stop him and his evil plans. That means it's pretty much open season on Rachel and her friends.

Rachel is a fantastic character! She's smart, strong, and has a smart mouth that adds a lot of comedy and laugh out loud moments.

This is such a great read. This has it all, comedy, action, adventure, mythical baddies and creatures. I can't say enough good things about this book. If you start the series, I can **promise** you won't be sorry. Start the series, and enjoy the ride, I know I did!

I can't wait for the next book to come out.
