I love Anne, Penelope and Hiro. They are the trio of the next generation of this mysterious world White has created. Plus, who can't love that Anne's real name is Anvil? Penelope and I are destined to be best friends who are constantly jumping each other in an effort to best the other with our mad sword skills. My favorite thing about these books is how utterly thrown into these crazy, dangerous situations these three find themselves with little to no instruction, adult supervision, or knowledge of all these insane rules they keep getting arrested for breaking. Thankfully, Anne and Penelope are orphans because I would have so been grounded by now.
While I so enjoyed this book, I was hoping that we would start to see a little more explanation about what is really going on in Hierarchy. Instead, I find myself with double the questions I had before. Oh well, I'm just going to have to continue reading. Darn.
Second books in a series can be difficult to pull off, but The Adventurer's Guide to Dragons is every bit as fun (funny/hilarious/belly-laugh-inducing) and well-written as the first. In this installment, Anne (Anvil), Penelope, and Hiro are once again thrust on a quest--a dangerous and highly illegal one. They must find a way to kill the Queen Dragon while keeping her safe.
The world-building shines. The mysteries deepen. The characters feel like friends. This is the perfect kind of book to get lost in while curled up under a blanket.
My only complaint is that it ends. Can't wait for the next book!
