Format: Paperback
The Game is back and just as deadly as the first book. The reader will enjoy reconnecting with the characters from the first book. Cat and her friends thought the Game was finished and they could go, hopefully with their prizes in hand. However, nothing is ever that easy. The Master of Misrule has tricked them, when he got out of the hot water he landed in due to his own machinations he turned on Cat and her friends. Cat and her friends are understandably angry and desire to get revenge on the Master of Misrule. More than their pride is at stake, the Game is seeping out into the real world and chaos will ensue without Cat and her friends taking the proper course of action.

Cat is still an interesting character. All of her friends display bravery and loyalty to one another. The reader will like the dynamics between the friends and get to know each of them very well. The Master of Misrule appears very fictitious at first, but the reader will slowly realize that he has grown in him/her and become the evil antagonist the reader expects. There are not too many other characters that are focused upon, the reader will get to know Cat and her friends to the point where he/she can predict their actions/thoughts fairly accurately.

The events were fast-paced, Cat and her friends do not have any chance to breathe as they rush to stop the Master of Misrule's nefarious plans. The plot is much the same as the first book in some ways, but different in others as Cat and her friends technically conquered the game. Teen/middle grade readers will love this novel.
