The magical continues to invade William's world as old and new threats arise. This time the danger becomes more pronounced, being upgraded from the mere threat that it was throughout most of book one.

By far the most interesting character is the reserved Shadlok. Cast out from his own kind, he finds life among humans difficult, and is slow to trust William, whom he is now bound to. William himself becomes more entangled by the plots of evil, but even when frightened, he pushes forward, determined to stop them. He is not your typical hero, he is a thinker, not a fighter; he was raised among monks afterall. Therefore he intuitively comes to accurate conclusions because of his cautious nature and ability to observe. Some of his actions are not the wisest though, which speaks to his naive age, for often he wanders off by himself even when danger is present.

The books strongest moments come when William works together with his allies. Bonds are built up slowly between the characters though, particularly between Shadlok and William. Unlike the other characters which make ties within one volume, the author has opted to stretch this one out across several volumes, and in all likelihood it will end up the strongest of the lot.
