From School Library Journal

Gr 5–8—After finding the first Loculus and escaping Brother Dimitros and the other Massarym monks in the first book in the series, The Colossus Rises (HarperCollins, 2013), Jack McKinley and his friends could use a vacation. But they'll get no time off as Marco, the most athletic and headstrong of the Select, has vanished along with the Loculus, one of the keys to restoring the power of Atlantis and saving the lives of the four teens who share the G7W gene. Tracking Marco down will lead the group to their next mission, finding the Loculus hidden in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Their adventure will place them in the middle of an ancient civilization, introduce them to a new friend, and challenge their understanding of the motives and methods of the two secret organizations searching for the Loculi. Johnathan McClain's youthful voice captures Jack's wry sense of humor and moments of vulnerability. He deftly changes voices to distinguish characters, from the burly and terse bodyguard Torquin to the supportive and clever servant Daria in Babylon. Particularly entertaining is his portrayal of Professor Bhegad. McClain gives the leader of the Karai Institute a high-pitched, hyper voice that belies the secrets he's keeping from the Select. With a solid sense of pacing, McClain guides listeners through the many twists in the narrative. Much is left unanswered and a revelation at the end will leave fans anxiously awaiting the next title.—Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

REVIEWED BY MARY GRACE PENARANDA

The Cover
I wasn't really attracted to the cover when I first saw it. They could have placed more emphasis on the Hanging Garden and made it more beautiful. But, im no artist, so I guess they think it was more fitted to use this particular cover instead.

The Story
Three words. I. Love. It.

You know an author is doing something right when you just have to stay up late at night to finish a book. And that's what I just did. And I crave for more.

The second book took off where the first one left. Confusion. But that was after our three heroes undergone a process of revival after the taxing quest they've just gone through. That and the fact that Marco vanished with the single object that they've risked their lives on. But like any great friends, they showed little to no sign of doubt towards him. With the support from the Karai Institute, Jack, Cass and Aly went looking for their missing friend.

I must say, the whole story intrigued me. I enjoyed every adventure they had as if I was with them. I had a lot of questions going on and some of them were answered in this book. Some. Then new ones came popping out at the end of the book. It feels like I'm in this cycle of never-ending venture of learning and finding out answers. Teehee. It was kind of confusing at first but Mr. Lerangis gives the readers a rundown of what has happened so you'll never be lost story wise. And the ending. I just have to say, I think I saw that one coming. I mean, the possibility of it all. It was a bit obvious from the clues given. But it still surprised me. Makes me wanna time skip everything and read the next book. The usual humour was present. From time to time, I find myself chuckling or smiling while reading.
